Waiting On Wednesday: SPINNING SILVER by Naomi Novik (A)


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme that used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I've missed posting these on a weekly basis and have decided to start doing them again. 
Waiting On Wednesday is where I/we get to "spotlight" the books that we are most looking forward to reading soon! 

Today's pick is... 


by Naomi Novik
Expected release date: July 10th, 2018
Published by: Del Rey (Penguin Random House)
Genre: Adult Fairytale Retelling/Fantasy
Format: Hardcover, eBook, Paperback, Audiobook


SUMMARY

Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty - until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers' pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed - and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth - especially when her father becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand. 


MY THOUGHTS

It is a RUMPELSTILTSKIN RETELLING!!!

I repeat - it is a RUMPELSTILTSKIN RETELLING!!!

One of my all-time favorites!!!

And UPROOTED was SOOO amazing, that I decided to go ahead and order the Goldsboro limited number signed edition of SPINNING SILVER the moment the pre-order was available! 


Some eye-catching phrases from the summary are...
- "When her grandfather loans her pouch full of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold."
- "... tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood..." 

I cannot wait to read this book!!!


What are you currently waiting for???
