Waiting on Wednesday (168)

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

I really am bad at getting this up on the right day. Oh well. This week I am excited for The Evil Queen by Gena Showalter and Wilder Girls by Rory Power.

I am a big fan of Gena Showalter. I've read most of her YA and a bunch of her romance books as well. I'm also a huge fan of anything fairy tale retelling, so The Evil Queen is right up my alley! I especially love twists in fairy tale villains. Considering the main character, Everly, is destined to become Snow White's Evil Queen, this is exactly my kind of story. The description also hints that Everly falls in love with Prince Charming, which is another twist. All in all, I'm super excited to read this!


Welcome to the Forest of Good and Evil. A dream come true, and a living nightmare.

Evil isn’t born, it’s made. One thought and action at a time. Take a good look at what you’ve made.

Far, far away, in the realm of Enchantia, creatures of legend still exist, magic is the norm and fairy tales are real. Except, fairy tales aren’t based on myths and legends of the past—they are prophecies of the future.

Raised in the mortal realm, Everly Morrow has no idea she’s a real life fairy tale princess—until she manifests an ability to commune with mirrors.

Look. See… What will one peek hurt?

Soon, a horrifying truth is revealed. She is fated to be Snow White’s greatest enemy, the Evil Queen.

With powers beyond her imagination or control—and determined to change Fate itself—Everly returns to the land of her birth. There, she meets Roth Charmaine, the supposed Prince Charming. Their attraction is undeniable, but their relationship is doomed.

As bits and pieces of the prophecy unfold, Everly faces one betrayal after another, and giving in to her dark side proves more tempting every day. Can she resist, or will she become the queen—and villain—she was born to be?

Release: June 25, 2019

I follow Rory Power on Twitter, and her Twitter account is reason enough to read her debut novel Wilder Girls. For some reason, the description reminds me of a TV show I watched as a kid, which sadly got canceled after one season. If this is anywhere near as weird and awesome as the show, then it's going to be a great book. I'm also excited because I believe the book features a f/f romance, which I'm always looking for more of. The book is horror, and it likely has some fantasy elements as well, and I can't wait to read it!


It's been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty's life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don't dare wander outside the school's fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there's more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

Release: July 9, 2019
