Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book released we are excited for.

My choice this week is:

Crown of Ice

Crown of Ice by Vicki L. Weavil

Release Date: 9th September 2014

From Goodreads:

“Thyra Winther’s seventeen, the Snow Queen, and immortal, but if she can’t reassemble a shattered enchanted mirror by her eighteenth birthday she’s doomed to spend eternity as a wraith.

Armed with magic granted by a ruthless wizard, Thyra schemes to survive with her mind and body intact. Unencumbered by kindness, she kidnaps local boy Kai Thorsen, whose mathematical skills rival her own. Two logical minds, Thyra calculates, are better than one. With time rapidly melting away she needs all the help she can steal.

A cruel lie ensnares Kai in her plan, but three missing mirror shards and Kai’s childhood friend, Gerda, present more formidable obstacles. Thyra’s willing to do anything – venture into uncharted lands, outwit sorcerers, or battle enchanted beasts — to reconstruct the mirror, yet her most dangerous adversary lies within her breast. Touched by the warmth of a wolf pup’s devotion and the fire of a young man’s desire, the thawing of Thyra’s frozen heart could be her ultimate undoing.

CROWN OF ICE is a YA Fantasy that reinvents Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen” from the perspective of a young woman who discovers that the greatest threat to her survival may be her own humanity.”

Yay, retellings are my favourite anyway but this sounds like it would be a fantastic retelling. Plus my love of winter makes the cover and overall setting of the book appeal more to me 🙂 Definitely looking forward to this YA fantasy and there’s only a few weeks left 🙂

What are your picks for this week?

  1. I haven’t heard of this one before, but now I really want to read it! A retelling of The Snow Queen sounds awesome, especially seeing as it’s from her point of view. I hope you get to read it soon. 🙂
