Waiting On Wednesday: The Glass Casket by McCormick Templeman

The Glass Casket by McCornick Templeman

Pitched as a twisted retelling of Snow White, in which a 16-year-old is left to uncover the evil forces responsible for her cousin’s gruesome murder before they destroy her family, her village, and her whole world.

McCormick did an interview with The Lucky 13s and said:
"It’s called The Glass Casket, and it’s a twisted retelling of Snow White. It’s set in a classic fairytale universe, very lush and cozy, but with a definite darkness to it. There’s a snowy mountain village, and a gruesome murder. There’s a beautiful girl, and an ancient curse, and all the while, a beast is stalking the woods. I had so much fun writing it, and I can’t wait to share it."

I mean I just want to squeal! I really hope this won’t disappoint! I can’t wait for the book itself but also the cover! I mean I love retellings and I hope this Snow White retelling will rock. I wish there were more info. I mean I want to know more what is this beast and other stuff. I mean it sounds more Red Ridding Hood but pfft, who cares?!

Waiting On Wednesday: More Than This

Man oh man, I haven’t done a WOW in FOREVER! Here is one this week. 🙂
Wow (no pun intended) this week’s WOW…well, I wish I can provide you with more info but I just can’t find any. Anyway, this week’s WOW is More Than This by Patrick Ness. The Chaos Walking Series didn’t impact me as much compared to my sister so I want to give Patrick another chance. I have NO IDEA what the book is about (if you do, please tell me :3). The title makes it sound like a contemporary/romance novel but I really don’t know. It really interest me though. It comes out September of next year. My sister is already fangirling about it and complaining about the long wait (and I think I might be too). But anyway, that was my WOW, what is your WOW this week? 🙂

Totally random but UOttawa Bookworms are awesome! Lookie! Our book club meeting this time is held in UCU 301…see it on the map? 😀

Eh? Eh? You like?

Prophecy (Prophecy #1)

by Ellen Oh 
.The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms… is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope…

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

Dualed (Dualed #1)

by Elsie Chapman (Goodreads Author)
.Would you live through the ultimate test of survival?

The city of Kersh is a safe haven, but the price of safety is high. Everyone has a genetic Alternate—a twin raised by another family—and citizens must prove their worth by eliminating their Alts before their twentieth birthday. Survival means advanced schooling, a good job, marriage—life.

Fifteen-year-old West Grayer has trained as a fighter, preparing for the day when her assignment arrives and she will have one month to hunt down and kill her Alt. But then a tragic misstep shakes West’s confidence. Stricken with grief and guilt, she’s no longer certain that she’s the best version of herself, the version worthy of a future. If she is to have any chance of winning, she must stop running not only from her Alt, but also from love . . . though both have the power to destroy her.

Elsie Chapman’s suspenseful YA debut weaves unexpected romance into a novel full of fast-paced action and thought-provoking philosophy. When the story ends, discussions will begin about this future society where every adult is a murderer and every child knows there is another out there who just might be better.
