Waiting on Wednesday



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight books that we can't wait to get our bibliophilic little hands on.

This week, I'm waiting for:

Snow White Sorrow by Camerone Jace
Publication Date: February 2013
What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.

The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live, and whispers two words in his ears; two words that will change his life forever.


A retelling of Snow White in which she is an angsty vampire possessing smothered truths? Why the heck not? I can't think of a reason not to want to read this book. 


Happy Reading Everyone :)

  9. I've seen this around and it sounds so good! Really different and interesting . . . I'm excited to see how people react to this one :)

    Also, the cover sort of reminds me of the covers for The Mortal Instruments for some reason. Something about the font and the lighting behind the girl...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Old follower :)
