Hi, everyone! I'm back from Toronto and I had such a blast. But I'm excited to have Wi-Fi again so I can return to the blogosphere. I have a lot of catching up to do! Thanks so much for putting up with me! :)
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating! This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross
True love’s kiss just may prove deadly....Release Date: April 10, 2012
Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’ half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.
In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who’s a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again.
But fairy tales aren’t pretty things, and they don’t always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy-tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy-tale curses of their own ... brothers who share a dark secret. And she’ll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.

I'll admit it: I fell in love with this book because of the cover first. But I'm also a HUGE sucker for anything that has to do with fairy tales and... Well, just read that synopsis! It's worth about a million of my convincing arguments, I think! :)
