Waiting On Wednesday (14)


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:
"Ondine: The Summer of Shambles"
by Ebony McKenna
Egmont Books Ltd
Release Date: April 5, 2010

The following description is from Goodreads.com:


This is a brilliantly witty fairy tale with a mystery that is as surreal as it is sinister. One girl. One boy. One spell to be broken. Ondine de Groot is a normal fifteen-year-old who lives with her family in the European country of Brugel. She has a pet ferret called Shambles. But Shambles is no ordinary ferret...He's Hamish McPhee, a boy cursed by a witch. A witch who happens to be related to Ondine. When Shambles turns back into Hamish temporarily, Ondine knows that she has to help him break the spell. He is the most gorgeous boy she has ever met and her one true love! He just can't remain a ferret forever. Can he?

I love fairy tale retellings!! This one has gotten such great reviews and I can't wait to read it and see for myself! It looks so sweet and looks like it has an equally sweet romance :)

What are you waiting for this week??

Don't forget, today is the last day to enter my Giveaway for "The Wish Stealers!"!!

This looks like a great book. It kind of reminds me a little bit of Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier. I really liked that one so I might like this one too.

What a wonderful surprise to see Ondine mentioned here. I hope you enjoy reading it when you get your hands on a copy.
One month to go. I am getting far too excited. I'm supposed to be professional and calm but that's impossible.
