Waiting on Wednesday (65)

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 Princess Curse"
by Merrie Haskell
Harper Collins
Release Date: Sep 6, 2011


The following description is from goodreads.com:

Twelve princesses suffer from a puzzling—and downright silly—curse. Ridiculous though the curse may be, whoever breaks it will win a handsome reward.

Sharp-witted Reveka, an herbalist’s apprentice, has little use for princesses, with their snooty attitudes and impractical clothing. She does, however, have use for the reward money that could buy her a position as a master herbalist.

But curses don’t like to be broken, and Reveka’s efforts lead her to deeper mysteries. As she struggles to understand the curse, she meets a shadowy stranger (as charming as he is unsettling) and discovers a blighted land in desperate need of healing. Soon the irreverent apprentice is faced with a daunting choice—will she break the curse at the peril of her own soul?

This one looks so fun and magical! And I love the cover!

What are you waiting for this week????

Someone featured this last week and I had to instantly add it to my TBR. I agree it sounds magical and fun and I love fairy tale retellings ^_^.

Also I agree I love the cover. It was illustrated by Jason Chan, the same artist who did the cover for Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Manchev and the rest of the books in the same series.
