Waiting on Wednesday (38)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of the event is to spotlight the upcoming releases that readers are most looking forward to.

This week, I've chosen:
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Format: Hardcover, 305 pages
Release Date: May 8, 2012
It isn't easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past - and hers?

This sounds so great. I love fairy tales and I'm always up for a new take on one. AND the main character and her sisters are named after the days of the week. Awesome, right?

What are you waiting on this beautiful Wednesday?

  8. YES YES YES!!! <3 Oh my gosh, Sonia, I really think you're going to love this book -- it was so darn sweet! This is another amazing thing we have in common: a love for fairy tales. And a love for odd names too LOL because even I have to admit that Sunday and her sisters were named after awesome! ;)
