It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA or MG novel from the top of my TBR list!
Releases 11 April 2017 from HarperCollins
Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king's headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close. Then, with a single drop of Aurora's blood and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken, everything changes.
As the faerie queen prepares to march, Isabelle races to find a prince who can kiss her sister back to life, and thus seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen. Isabelle crosses land and sea as unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape... or a reason for her to stay.

This sounds like it has just about everything I like to see in a fairytale retelling. Check it out, if it also seems like your kind of story, and then come back on Saturday for a recap of my WriteOnCon experience this year.
