Waiting and Wishing On Wednesday: The Crystal Heart (May 13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and Wishlist Wednesday is hosted over at Pen to Paper. These are weekly memes that are a chance to share new books that you're most excited about getting you hands on. 

                                      What I'm Waiting and Wishing For

A girl in a tower. An underground kingdom. This retelling of Rapunzel offers a gripping blend of magic, romance, adventure, fairytale, and mystery.

When 17-year-old army conscript Kasper Bator is chosen to join the elite guard that keeps watch over a dangerous prisoner in a tower, he believes what he's been told: the prisoner is a powerful witch. But when he meets the prisoner, Kasper's life will change forever—for the prisoner is no witch, but a beautiful young girl. The daughter of the country's enemy, the Prince of Night, Izolda has been held hostage since she was three. And she is in imminent danger, for a prophecy says she must die on her 16th birthday if Krainos is to be saved from the Prince of Night. Kasper decides to help her escape. As the days pass, their friendship turns into real love, but their hiding place won't stay safe forever.

Why I'm Waiting and Wishing

Okay, so I haven't heard much about this release, but I did happen to run across it on one of the blogs I read and I was immediately captured by the cover. (That's right *gasp* I am guilty of being a dirty-little-book-cover-judger!). 

Anyway, so I didn't have a lot to go on or tons of early praise, and I haven't read anything by the author…but here are two reasons I'm excited for this one:

 1. Have you read that blurb? I mean seriously: fairy tale retelling, rapunzel, love story, intrigue - this books got it all. 
2. Look at that cover art - beautiful! I must have it! 


Please feel free to share links to your highly anticipated reads below. It's so exciting to read about everyone else's picks and find new books to add to my TBR list!

  1. OMG! This sounds so super cute! Totally hit my goodreads list! I love finding new books and authors. If you think you are the only one that judges a book by it's cover you're nuts! We all do it! (at least we all you and me do it, ha ha)

    Have a great day Jenn!
