Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

The third novel in Serena Valentino's (Fairest of All, Beast Within) "VILLAINS" trilogy, featuring the story of the Little Mermaid from the perspective of the sea witch Ursula.

I still need to read the first two of the trilogy. I guess Maleficent had just been a movie adaptation kind of read. Still fits into this series in a way, though it was written by another author if I do recall! Still, this series will be fun! I just know it!

TITLE: Poor Unfortunate Soul
AUTHOR: Serena Valentino

PUBLISHER: Disney Press
GENRE: Fairy Tale Retelling YA(ish?)
RELEASE DATE: July 26,2016

Lana used to know what was real.

That was before when her life was small and quiet.
Her golden step-brother, Ben, was alive, she could only dream about bonfiring with the populars, their wooded island home was idyllic, she could tell the truth from lies, and Ben’s childhood stories were firmly in her imagination.

Then came after.

After has Lana boldly kissing her crush, jumping into the water from too high up, and living with nerve and mischief. But after also has horrors, deaths that only make sense in fairy tales, and terrors from a past Lana thought long forgotten: Love, blood, and murder.

I really enjoyed her first thriller, so I'm excited for her next one! Plus this cover is creepy! And I like the creepy!

TITLE: The Telling
AUTHOR: Alexandra Sirowy

PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
GENRE: Thriller YA
RELEASE DATE: August 2, 2016


  1. Ok, Ursula always freaked me out! I didn't know there was a book about her! :)

  2. I'm not familiar with the 'Villain's Trilogy'. Hope you enjoy Ursula's story when you get to read it.'The Telling' sounds a little creepy.

  3. Sounds so great!! I didn't know about the Villains Trilogy, but you can be sure I'll check it!

    Thanks for sharing, here's my WoW :)

  4. Love the cover for Telling! Ursula's story maybe interesting, it is hard for me to like re-tellings from the Villains point of view.


  5. OK I think I may need both of these books like right now!! They sounds fantastic!!!!

    Great picks this week.

    Feel free to pop over and check out my WOW

  7. I haven't heard of the Villains trilogy but seems pretty entertaining. Would love to read The Telling. I'm a fan of thrillers so that one is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  8. I love Disney villains, they're so deliciously evil! I also loved Maleficent although I haven't read the novelization yet. The Telling sounds mysterious and I'm on a thriller binge-read so I might have to seek this one out!
    Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!

  9. Ooooh! There's an Ursula one?? I've only read (part of) the Beast one and I haven't really enjoyed it too much yet. I'll have to pick it back up soon.

  14. Awesome picks, especially the Ursula one! Here’s my WoW!

  15. These are both new to me. I love Ursuala! I think I have watched that movie at least a million times :) I hope you enjoy these when you get a chance to read them.

  16. Ummm.... I need to get this "VILLAINS" trilogy!!! Sounds like a series I will love!

    Have a happy week!

  17. These are new to me! Though I have to say "Poor Unfortunate Soul" is the perfect title for Ursula's book. I love that song too, villains in Disney movies have the best songs :)
