Waiting on Wednesday: Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas

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:

Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas

Publication: September 15, 2015

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling, Romance

Goodreads Summary

When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit…

The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story.

Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker.

Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after.

Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.

Why I'm desperate for Ash & Bramble:

I know there are so many Cinderella retelling's out there but I would be totally lying if I said I wasn't excited for this one. This sounds like Cinderella but with a twist and I'm just dying for a chance to read it! I knew I was a goner when I read those words, "....a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers..." I want it!!
