[Waiting On Wednesday: The Glass Casket]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"The Glass Casket"
Author: McCormick Templeman
Release Date: February 11th, 2014


 Death hasn’t visited Rowan Rose since it took her mother when Rowan was only a little girl. But that changes one bleak morning, when five horses and their riders thunder into her village and through the forest, disappearing into the hills. Days later, the riders’ bodies are found, and though no one can say for certain what happened in their final hours, their remains prove that whatever it was must have been brutal.

Rowan’s village was once a tranquil place, but now things have changed. Something has followed the path those riders made and has come down from the hills, through the forest, and into the village. Beast or man, it has brought death to Rowan’s door once again.

Only this time, its appetite is insatiable.

So, I'm not sure if this is actually a Snow White retelling or not, but I do know that it sounds like it's going to be epic and that it sounds amazing!  I love that it seems like it's going to be quite creepy and I also really dig the cover.  Everything is kind of shrouded in mystery and I'm always a fan of that.  February needs to get here in a hurry!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

This does sound really good! I've heard it was kind of a Snow White retelling but it was very unique so I guess loosely based on it? Either way I need it! :D

I'm definitely intrigued by the cover and synopsis of this one. I'll be keeping my eyes open for this one. Great pick! Happy Thanksgiving!

Lili said...

That first line in the synopsis reminded of THE BOOK THIEF for some reason. I haven't seen this one around before, so it's definitely an interesting pick!

Jessica R said...

Ooh, yes, nice pick! I'm definitely curious about this one because I'm quite sure that I've heard that it does have roots in Snow White. Sounds like it could be awesome!
