Waiting on Wednesday: Snow White Sorrow


Time for another amazing Wednesday! ♥ :)

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: 

Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace
Release Date: October 30, 2012
Series: The Grimm Diaries #1
Links: Goodreads
What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?

Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.

Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.

When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.

The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live.

(summary taken from Goodreads)
Why do I want this book?
  1. I love fairytales and fairytale re-tellings! And one where Snow White is the evil killing machine instead of a damsel in distress? I don't know how anything could sound better than that! x)  ♥
  2. It sounds like Anna Dressed in Blood, which I really loved! I mean, awesome male protagonist and killer crazy yet beautiful monster girl... Doesn't it to you?
  3. THAT COVER. I would pay big bucks to have this gorgeous cover on my shelf! 
  4. After reading Amanda Hocking's Trylle Trilogy, I'm kind of in love with the name Loki. :')
I could probably come up with a list of a million reasons, but that's all for now! ;) 

WHAT BOOK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

  5. This sounds AWESOME! But... I really don't like the girl on the cover. She's so creepy >__<

    You know what it reminds me of? A Cassie Clare cover! Seriously, where do you find these? WANT!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. That does sound like Anna Dressed in Blood, considering she let Loki live. But the fairy tale aspect is what I'm really interested in-you know how I love a good fairy tale telling!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I adore fairy tale retellings too ! :D They can be really awesome if they are well-written!
    Now that you mentioned it, it does sound a little like Anna Dressed in Blood. I can't wait to read this book, Mimi. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ohmigosh, I read the title and thought 'Hmm... this is probably a pretty little re-telling of Snow White' and then the cover photo came up 0_0 This book is far from cute and pretty... :D But it sounds totally awesome (once I got over the fact that the cover freaks me out!) and it's weird to think of the princess as the 'killing machine' LOL! I'm gonna have check this out: I mean, come on there's a guy in it who was banned from Heaven and he has the most gorgeous name EVER <333 I'm feeling the sudden urge to rename my dog Loki!!! Hehe, I can see myself whispering that name over and over >.<

    Sorry about that rambling comment! Fantastic pick, Mimi <3 I hope we both get our hands on this Loki-licious book soon LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete

  19. This series look promising, but after reading some early reviews of its prequel, I'm going to wait to see what other people are thinking before picking it up. That cover is amazing though!

  29. Whoa! I'm listening to Anna Dressed in Blood right now on auidobook, and yes, this one sounds exactly like it. But of course it's going to be different, and now I'm wondering just how different. Plus, Vampire girl. YES! I could definitely be on board for that. Thanks for finding this one and sharing it Mimi! It sounds fantastic!

  30. "I love fairytales and fairytale re-tellings! And one where Snow White is the evil killing machine instead of a damsel in distress? I don't know how anything could sound better than that!" Oh my god, yes! Snow White is one of my favourite fairytales so I can't believe I haven't of this one. Thanks for letting me know about it, Mimi!

  31. This story sounds Insane! I might have to steal it for my next WOW pick Mimi!

  33. Haha, this sounds so cool! Fab pick this week, Mims! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. So the story sounds good and I love fairy tale retellings (except I'm not sure about the whole monster killing stuff). I have to say though that the cover does freak me out a little - she looks a little possessed. I may have to wait to add this to my list until I see some reviews. Thanks for the preview!

    1. Oh, and I forgot to say that I'm looking forward to reading Endlessly by Kiersten White that will be coming out next week!

      Delete
  35. Just the mention of a fairy-tale is enough to persuade me. I love the sound of this! Re-tellings are some of the most interesting books to read if they're done well. I hope this one doesn't disappoint! Great pick, Mimi! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love fairy tale remakes!!! Sounds good.

  39. Snow White meets Anna Dressed in Blood... I LOVE IT!! I love the name Loki after reading the Trylle trilogy as well :,) This sounds wonderfully creepy! I love the sound of this retelling! TBR-ing it. Thanks so much for sharing this, Mimi!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. LOL we actually have the same WoW this week! :D
    I want this book for pretty much the same reasons... though I fell in love with the name Loki after watching the Avengers!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Holy crap, this sounds so good! I must get my hands on it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. YES. I really want to read this one. Ever since I read the summary (and to be honest, it wasn't that long ago but still) I have been DYING to read it. It just sounds awesome and I love the name Loki as well. I think I'll be picturing a younger Tom Hiddleson though (Loki in Thor and the Avengers)...not that it's a bad thing. LOVE that guy.

  43. I love this cover!!!! But the story sounds awesome too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. WOW This sounds exactly like Anna Dressed In Blood! O.O Sweet choice, Mimi-doll! Definitely cannot wait to get my hands on this awesome retelling. This is the third retelling of Snow White that I have heard about in 2012... Mirror Mirror, Snow White & The Huntsman (CHRIS HEMSWORTH OMG)... that's so cool! I hope that there will be many more fairytale retellings to come. :') And LOKI!!! What a bad-ass name!! LOL. If for nothing else, I HAVE to read this book just because of him. <333 This book just made me feel so happy!!! (Before I was feeling so utterly depressed because I've been looking for a copy of Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross EVERYWHERE and I just can't seem to find it!! UGH.) But hopefully it'll appear soon... fingers crossed!!! And toes. XD Awesome tactic choice, Mimi!!!! <3333

    ReplyDelete
  45. Snow White meets Anna Dressed in Blood? Sounds awesome to me, Mimi. Great pick. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. YOU ALWAYS INTRODUCE ME TO THE MOST AWESOME SOUNDING BOOKS, MIMI :D Eeeee, I love fairytale re-tellings too! ALL re-tellings, really. This sounds like a super dark, thriller kind of twist and I'm totally up for it! And maaaaan, I have to read Anna Dressed in Blood D: I think the last person on Earth to have not read it and fallen in love!

    (I can't think of Loki as anything but Thor's brother Loki. LOKIIIIII <3333)

    Awesome pick, Mimi! :)

  47. Yeeej, this was my pick last week! ^^ So great!

    ReplyDelete
  48. What an awesome pick Mimi! Re-tellings are all over the place these days, but especially love ones that put a completely different take on things! I'm so glad we don't have to wait for the release of this one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Awesome! This sounds like a book full with awesomeness. :) I love fairytale re-tellings!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. IDK where you find these books, M, but now I want to read it too! It does remind me of Anna Dressed in Blood and I love the idea. :D

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have picked up a couple of intro novellas for this book and another comes out next week. This does sound like a good one? Love the cover!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ohh, wow :o That definitely does sound good! You always manage to make me super intrigued about everything, haha! Thanks for putting it on my radar. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow, great pick Mimi! This one sounds amazing. :) I love fairytale retellings (especially the darker, more mature kinds) and this book does sound like Anna Dressed in Blood! The cover is lovely and visually appealing as well.. Fingers crossed Snow White Sorrow is as good as it sounds! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  54. I so totally love that the cadillac talks to Loki.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This different spin on the classic Snow White tale is definitely interesting! What's really got me thinking is how Snow White Sorrow will explain, (to quote the synopsis), "why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it." I can only hope it'll live up to expectations! This whole plot sounds so original and unique. Great book!:)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Sounds awesome!!! It's definitely something different.
