Waiting on Wednesday: Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks book that I'm desperate to get my hands on:

Spinning Starlight by R.C. Lewis

Publication: October 6, 2015

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Retelling

Goodreads Summary

Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family in the galaxy, it's hard to escape it. So when a group of men show up at her house uninvited, she assumes it's just the usual media-grubs. That is, until shots are fired.

Liddi escapes, only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor implants a device in Liddi's vocal cords to monitor her speech, their lives are in her hands: One word and her brothers are dead.

Desperate to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help her bring her eight brothers home-a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength and wit to convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the planets deeply intertwined with her brothers' survival, just how much is Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back?

Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans strings the heart of the classic with a stunning, imaginative world as a star-crossed family fights for survival in this companion to Stitching Snow.

Why I'm desperate for Spinning Starlight:

OMG! You guys, I'm seriously fangirling right now! R.C. Lewis the author who wrote Stitching Snow which I completely loved (you can find my review here) has made another retelling and this time it's of my all time favorite story, The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen! It's a dream come true! I'm so happy but also very desperate! Why until October??WHY?? I want an Arc but with my luck eehh yeah...I'll just have to wait.

  2. This sounds AMAZING! And so does Stitching Snow! I didn't realize these were sci-fi. I love retellings, but when you add interplanetary antics, that makes it a thousand times more fun. I need to get Stitching Snow and then I need to read Spinning Starlight. I love the covers, too. They're simple, yet effective. I can't believe I passed over these! I won't now. Great pick!
