Wishing on Wednesday (23) Sleeping Beauty’s Daughters

wishing Wishing on Wednesday is a weekly meme to feature recent and upcoming releases that I’m wishing for!

Princesses Aurora and Luna have grown up in a cliff-top palace by the sea, where they are carefully protected by their parents, the king and queen. No one visits, the girls cannot stray beyond the castle walls, and, curiously, all sharp objects are forbidden from the castle.

But accidents will happen—particularly when an old curse still has power. Soon, in spite of all precautions, Aurora is struggling not to slip into an enchanted sleep.

Frantic, the princesses accept the help of a young fisherman named Symon and embark on a daring ocean voyage to find their aunt—a fairy who may be able to break the spell. From fearsome beasts to raging storms, many dangers befall them, yet they must not give up…for if Aurora sleeps, she will not wake for one hundred years.

Why I Want It:

I’ve enjoyed Diane Zahler’s other retellings, and I’ve always loved Sleeping Beauty, so what’s not to love? Plus the cover is absolutely gorgeous (as all of Diane’s covers are!)

Coming to a bookstore near you… August 27th 2013 from Harper Collins!

What are you Wishing for this Wednesday?

I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
