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.

Featuring beloved characters such as the Little Mermaid, Thumbelina, and the Snow Queen, a deluxe full-color edition of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytales, illustrated with stunning drawings and interactive artwork from MinaLima, the award-winning design studio behind the graphics for the Harry Potter film franchise—the perfect companion for fans of the Disney live-action film The Little Mermaid which will include a mix of songs from Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken.
Nearly two hundred years after its publication in 1837, Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless fairytales continue to inspire young imaginations. This beautiful unabridged edition brings together many of the Danish writer’s favorite stories that have become literary classics, including "The Little Mermaid", "Thumbelina", "The Snow Queen", "The Princess and the Pea", "The Ugly Duckling", "The Emperor’s New Clothes", and more.

I LOVED the Peter Pan and The Beauty and the Beast interactive editions from Harper Design, so naturally I have my eye on The Little Mermaid and Other Fairy Tales from Hans Christian Andersen! True, it's one of the saddest original fairy tales ever, but these books are just gorgeous and I do still enjoy the tale despite it's heartbreak. I'm a glutton for punishment apparently!

There is no action without consequence…

Dani O’Malley was nine years old when the delusional, sadistic Rowena transformed her into a ruthless killer. Years later, she’s tough, hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, driven by deeper ones carved into her soul, no one is more committed to protecting Dublin. By day, she ensures the safety of those she rescues, by night she hunts evil, dispensing justice swiftly and without mercy, determined to give those she cares for the peace she has never known.

There is no power without price…

When the Faerie Queen used the dangerously powerful Song of Making to heal the world from the damage done by the Hoar Frost King, catastrophic magic seeped deep into the earth, giving rise to horrifying, unforeseen consequences–and now deadly enemies plot in the darkness, preparing to enslave the human race and unleash an ancient reign of hell on Earth.

There is no future without sacrifice…

With the lethal, immortal Ryodan at her side, armed with the epic Sword of Light, Dani once again battles to save the world but her past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance, demanding an unspeakable price for the power she needs to save the human race and no one—not even Ryodan who’d move the very stars for her—can save her this time…

I am vastly behind in this series but it's one I *hope* to get caught up in this year! I would positively love to meet Karen one day too! I was sooooo close in 2012, but alas, it wasn't meant to be...YET! Sadly can't make it to Paris for the release party for this one. Sigh...

  7. The Little Mermaid and other fairy tales looks intriguing. I've never read anything by Karen Marie Moning before, but I would gladly go to Paris with you to meet her.
    Thanks for stopping by My WoW earlier.

  8. When I was a kid, I have this beautifully illustrated Hans Christian Andersen book, that my grandmother gave me. I carried it around everywhere for quite a while. I wish I knew where it was now.

  9. I stopped reading the Dani O'Malley novels after Burned because I didn't like the direction the series was going, but I hope you enjoy High Voltage!
