Waiting On Wednesday #106: TEAR YOU APART by Sarah Cross (YA)

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

This is were 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 all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting for...

(A sequel to Kill Me Softly)
by Sarah Cross
Expected release date: January 27th, 2015
Published by: Egmont
Genre: Young Adult Fairytale
Format: Hardcover, eBook


An edgy fairy tale retelling of "Snow White" set in the world of Kill Me Softly for fans of Once Upon a Time and Grimm.

Faced with a possible loophole to her "Snow White" curse, Viv goes underground, literally, to find the prince who's fated to rescue her. 

But is life safe in the Underworld worth the price of sacrificing the love that might kill her?

Why I'm waiting on TEAR YOU APART...

Why wouldn't I????
And, I haven't even read Kill Me Softly Yet! lol

This is said to be a combination inspiration/retelling of "Snow White, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and Rumpelstiltskin"!!! 
These are all my favorites! If the author could have thrown in a touch of Little Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland, well then, she would become my fairytale-godmother-goddess!!! 

I believe that this could be read as a standalone, but there are cameo appearances of characters from Kill Me Softly; I will be sure to read this one first, just to be sure :)

SO, what are you so anxiously waiting for???


  1. I didn't know that this is retelling! I have to read it now!
    Great choice!

  2. Awesome pick! Love the cover and blurb. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Hump Day!

  3. Ohhhh what do we have there?! Nice cover, just the right kind of creepy. I haven't read Kill Me Softly yet, either, but at leasts it's one of the maaaany books that's already made it onto my shelf and not just my wishlist. Guess we have to work up to this beauty, soon, eh?

  5. Hah, yeah, me too. I'm such a fan of retellings, and this one sounds really great! Hopefully I'll get around to reading Kill Me Softly before this comes out! Good thing there's still time!
