Waiting on Wednesday (136)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I am super excited for Stain by A.G. Howard! I loved her Splintered trilogy, so I'm hoping this book will be amazing as well. It's a retelling of The Princess and the Pea, which is something I haven't seen before in YA. A.G. Howard has been doing some really interesting retellings recently, and I hope she continues. The story also looks super interesting. I am excited to see how Lyra wins back her kingdom and saves her world. I am all in for this 'high fantasy gothic fairytale' as Goodreads calls it.


A high-fantasy gothic fairytale inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea.

Once upon a nightmare, her fairy tale begins...

After Lyra—a princess incapable of speech or sound—is cast out of her kingdom of daylight by her wicked aunt, a witch saves her life, steals her memories, and raises her in an enchanted forest ... disguised as a boy known only as Stain. Meanwhile, in Lyra's rival kingdom, the prince of thorns and night is dying, and the only way for him to break his curse is to wed the princess of daylight, for she is his true equal. As Lyra rediscovers her identity, an impostor princess prepares to steal her betrothed prince and her crown. To win back her kingdom, save the prince, and make peace with the land of the night, Lyra must be loud enough to be heard without a voice, and strong enough to pass a series of tests—ultimately proving she’s everything a traditional princess is not.

Release: January 15, 2019
