Waiting on Wedneday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:
"The Wide-Awake Princess"
by E.D. Baker
Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
Release Date: April 27, 2010

The following description is from Goodreads.com:


Top-selling author E. D. Baker delights fans with a brand new fairy tale world full of humor and charm.

In this new stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie—blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic—can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen’s true love to kiss her awake.
But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn’t possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father’s guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale
land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family...and perhaps even find a true love of her own.


I love fairy tale retellings and this one looks like it has such an interesting concept!! I've been interested in reading this author's Frog Princess series ever since I found out that Disney's "The Princess and the Frog" was based on those books!

What are you waiting on this week??

One more week to enter my Giveaway for "The Wish Stealers!"!!
