Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday January 23rd 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating. In my case not so patiently waiting for the new releases, which I lack.

Happy Wednesday!

I stumbled across Of Beast and Beauty over the last week and was a instant book I just have to read. Since I was a little girl the Beauty and The Beast story has been my favorite. My mom even took me to see Beauty and The Beast on ice as a kid. I've seen and read everything I could get my hands on up to this point so I can't wait to read Of Beast and Beauty. I love the cover it's just screaming read me. 

Of Beast and Beauty
by Stacey Jay
Expected Publication: July 23rd 2013


In the beginning was the darkness, and in the darkness was a girl, and in the girl was a secret...

In the domed city of Yuan, the blind Princess Isra, a Smooth Skin, is raised to be a human sacrifice whose death will ensure her city’s vitality. In the desert outside Yuan, Gem, a mutant beast, fights to save his people, the Monstrous, from starvation. Neither dreams that together, they could return balance to both their worlds.

Isra wants to help the city’s Banished people, second-class citizens despised for possessing Monstrous traits. But after she enlists the aid of her prisoner, Gem, who has been captured while trying to steal Yuan’s enchanted roses, she begins to care for him, and to question everything she has been brought up to believe.

As secrets are revealed and Isra’s sight, which vanished during her childhood, returned, Isra will have to choose between duty to her people and the beast she has come to love.

What are you waiting on this week?
