Waiting on Wednesday (13)


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

Who doesn't love a good fairy tale retelling? I know I do! If you haven't read any of Robin Palmer's books, you have missed out. They are so much fun. Of course, you could watch the recent Disney movie of Geek Charming and have a good idea of what they are like. Robin Palmer has another installment in her fairy tale retelling line... Wicked Jealous. Yep. A Snow White retelling in time for summer 2012.

Wicked Jealous: A Love Story
 Simone never saw herself as the “cute girl”—she was always the chunky, band tee wearing, France-obsessed smart girl. But now that Simone’s a few pounds lighter and sporting a new retro style, things have gotten, well, weird. Her crush Jason seems to actually know she exists. And when Simone’s soon-to-be stepmonster Hillary stops ignoring her, Simone knows something is up. When Simone’s brother offers to let her move in with him and his six roommates on the beach for the summer, Simone jumps at the chance. But living with seven very different college boys isn’t exactly helping her land her very own happily ever after

New from Rick Riordan

I love these books. I really, really do. So, obviously, I'm super excited to see all the awesome that will be coming our way soon.

The Kane Chronicles will have a third book in the series: The Serpent's Shadow. This has to be my favorite cover in the series. While the Egyptian mythology adventure isn't my favorite of RR's books, I do enjoy his wonderful story telling and use of mythology. Egyptian mythology is so complicated, but he makes it kid friendly. Oh, I hope he decides to do something with Norse mythology one day!

Now, for what I'm really excited about. A new Demigod Diaries book, complete with brand new short stories (of the Percy Jackson kind). There will be a story about Luke Castellan, in his pre-evil bastard days. Yippie!

Looks like we have something to hold us over until The Mark of Athena (Lost Hero #3) comes out later this year! You can find more on Rick Riordan's website by clicking HERE.
