"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

For this week, I am eagerly anticipating -

Beauty - 
Nancy Ohlin
Released: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Synopsis: Looks to kill for...

Ana is nothing like her glamorous mother, Queen Veda, whose hair is black as ravens and whose lips are red as roses. Alas, Queen Veda loathes anyone whose beauty dares to rival her own—including her daughter.

And despite Ana’s attempts to be plain to earn her mother’s affection,
she’s sent away to the kingdom’s exclusive boarding school.

At the Academy, Ana is devastated when her only friend abandons her for the popular girls. Isolated and alone, Ana resolves to look like a true princess to earn the acceptance she desires.

But when she uncovers the dangerous secret that makes all of the girls at the Academy so gorgeous, just how far will Ana go to fit in?

Why i can't wait: Because I am a sucker for fairy-tale retellings. Say no more!

What are you waiting on? :)

  3. Beauty - is this a retelling of Snow White? I love that story! And I haven't read a single retelling of that fairy tale, so I really think I will enjoy this one! I have not seen this book around until now, so hats off to you! Great choice :D

    Here is my WoW pick!
