Waiting On Wednesday (133): A Wicked Thing

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

The book I´m waiting this week is

A Wicked Thing by Rhiannon Thomas
Release date: February 24th 2015
A spinning wheel. A prick of a finger. A terrible curse.

One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that she should be living happily ever after. But as Aurora understands all too well, the truth is nothing like the fairytale.

Her family is long dead. Her “true love” is a kind stranger. And her whole life has been planned out by political foes while she slept. Everyone expects Aurora to marry her betrothed and restore magic and peace to the kingdom before revolution tears it apart. But after a lifetime spent locked in a tower for her own safety, Aurora longs for the freedom to make her own choices. When she meets a handsome rebel, he tempts her to abandon everything for a different kind of life.

As Aurora struggles to make sense of her new world, she begins to fear that the curse has left its mark on her, a fiery and dangerous thing that might be as wicked as the witch who once ensnared her.

With her wedding day drawing near, Aurora must make the ultimate decision on how to save her kingdom: marry the prince or run.

  1. It's Aurora! Princess Aurora! In a story, all her own. Coming in February! So... Excited... I cannot even express myself! Plus? A handsome REBEL! Yeehaw! You know, with most gal in dress covers, I am pretty bored these days. But then one pops up like this one, and it makes me like the trend even if for just this one book! Cause this one is purty!

  2. This looks really interesting, I like Sleeping Beauty retellings that give her a bit more personality and agency than the original fairy tale.

  3. My pick is also a Sleeping Beauty retelling! This sounds amazing, and I LOVE that cover! I'm so glad there are a bunch of fairytale retellings coming out in the next year. They're some of my favorite books. :)

    My WOW

  4. Oh yes! So can't wait for this one either! Put a request in at Edelweiss Monday but have yet to get a response. Likely it'll be a denial as that's the norm with EW.

    Hope you enjoy it too!
