Waiting on Wednesday (99)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis (10/14/14):

Description (on Goodreads):
Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.
Why I’m Waiting:
Authors want to keep re-telling fairytales, and I’m so okay with letting them. Futuristic/sci-fi fairytales? Yes, please. I have a soft spot for this particular tale, and this sounds like such a fun read. I kind of love that there are seven drones instead of dwarves, and I can’t wait to read about more similarities in past and future tellings of Snow White. Also, I kind of love the cover; it’s simple, yet not simple at all.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Fairytale Retellings are either a hit or a miss for me. I really am hoping that this one delivers for me.

  2. I've been seeing this book everywhere! Never really stopped to read the blurb, though, just because I wasn't too interested in the cover. I didn't realize it was a fairytale retelling, haha! Usually I love those. Hm, I don't know, maybe I'll give it a try some day ;)
