Waiting on Wednesday #128: MIRRORED by Alex Flinn (YA)


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 


What I'm currently waiting for... 


by Alex Flinn
Expected release date: September 15th, 2015
Published by HarperTeen
Genre: Young Adult Fairytale Retelling
Format: Hardcover, eBook



SUMMARY

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Alex Flinn's modern and mysterious retelling of Snow White, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and true love doesn't necessarily mean Prince Charming.
Celine's life is the stuff fairy tales are made of. She's beautiful, talented, and brave. Unfortunately, her tale comes complete with a wicked stepmother!
 When Violet steps into Celine's life, everything changes and weird things begin to happen to her — bizarre accidents, strange illnesses, and rabid animal attacks. Celine doesn't feel safe anywhere. It's almost as if some hateful witch is out to get her.
And there is. Violet has been waiting all her life to have Celine's father to herself. Getting rid of his gorgeous daughter is child's play for a witch as powerful as she is. Happy-ever-after isn't enough for Violet. She wants to be the fairest of them all, and Celine is in the way... but not for long.
Forced to take refuge with her friend Goose and his family, Celine gives up everything she loves and goes deep undercover. But will it be enough to fool Violet, or will Celine's fate be decided by a reflection in a magic mirror? 
And where do you find Prince Charming in Miami anyway?
Mirrored is a modern retelling of Snow White — told from the points of view of Violet, Celine, and Goose — with all the magic and mystery readers will love.



Why I'm waiting for MIRRORED...

First... it's a SNOW WHITE modern-day retelling!!!

Second... I love when books have multiple points-of-views, and this one has THREE!

Lastly... who's GOOSE?!?! :)



SO, what are you waiting for this week???
