Waiting on Wednesday

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine
Fairy tales take a weird twist in this anthology compiling stories from an all-star cast of fantasy writers, including stories from Neil Gaiman, Charlie Jane Anders and Alison Littlewood.

Here in this book you'll find unique twists on the fairy tale conceit of the curse, from the more traditional to the modern - giving us brand new mythologies as well as new approaches to well-loved fables. Some might shock you, some might make you laugh, but they will all impress you with their originality.
If you know me at all, you know how I looooove my fairy tales! Retellings have been a favorite even when I was a teenager and there was a YA line of fairy tale retellings! This anthology is actually an adult level read that will take some familiar tales and totally twist them up!

  2. I love fairy tale retellings. But I'm rarely a fan of anthologies. But there are some awesome authors in here!
