Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week my pick is;
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: 14th March 2017
Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.
So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.
Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?
Ever since I read the Starbound series that she wrote with Amie Kaufman I’ve wanted to read more of Meagan Spooner’s work, and I’m getting the perfect opportunity with Hunted. I’m a huge fan of fairy tale retellings and a huge fan of Meagan Spooner’s writing so a combination the two is bound to be a huge win for me.
So what does everyone think; is Hunted a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
