Wishing on Wednesday (26) Doon

wishing

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

Doon


DOON…

Veronica doesn't think she's going crazy. But why can't anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna's great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica's daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they've longed for...or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

DOON is loosely based on the premise of the musical Brigadoon, with permission from the ALan Jay Lerner Estate and the Frederick Loewe Foundation. Follow the journey at http://www.DoonSeries.com

Why I Want It:

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of obsessed with Broadway musicals and fairy tales, and this book revolves around both! Besides just being based on a fairy tale-esque musical, but I’ve heard that the characters both like musicals and fairy tales, as well. It’s fate that I’ve discovered this book!

  3. Ummm...this is a book set in Scotland? Really, do I need anything more??? Nope, don't think so! I love books set in other countries and I always feel like I actually get to explore a little bit with the characters. so, yes, I think I have to add this one to my TBR list :)

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 )=
