Waiting on Wednesday (26): My Name is Rapunzel

March 12, 2013
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by
Jill @ Breaking the Spine where bloggers share their most anticipated reads.

This week I'm waiting on
 
  My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton
Coming out sometime in 2013




My tale has been told again and again, and I’ve heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn’t have laughed if they’d known the real story. It wasn't their fault. They didn't know the truth. Nobody did.

My name is Rapunzel and I will tell you my story. I will tell you the truth.

Why I'm waiting?
My Name is Rapunzel sounds like a dark take on Rapunzel's fairytale. Normally I don't go for retelling, but I'm really liking the premises for this one. If the book is as good as the premises, there is no question that I would love it.


What are you waiting on this week?
