Waiting on Wednesday (21)

This is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. 
This week I am waiting for -  

Author - Sarah Cross
Release Date - April 10th, 2012
True love’s kiss just may prove deadly.... 

Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’ half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined. 

In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who’s a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again. 

But fairy tales aren’t pretty things, and they don’t always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy-tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy-tale curses of their own ... brothers who share a dark secret. And she’ll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns. 

Soooo this is a different one than what your use to seeing me waiting for huh? Well just look at that cover...then the synopsis, it already has me intrigued about this story. Is it kinda like a Beauty and the Beast type deal or something else?!? Whatever it is...I'm drawn to it and want to get my hands on it! What do you guys think?

What are you waiting for this week? Leave me a link I'd love to come check it out!

  2. I love the cover so creepy yet pretty. It also sounds very unique and different from anything I have read. I'm really curious about it because from the description I can't tell completely what it will be about. Thanks for visiting My WOW!
