Waiting on Wednesday #18

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Because... This Snow White Retelling takes place in New York City, 1928

Snow White: A Graphic Novel by Matt Phelan
Release Date: September 13, 2016
Goodreads Summary: The scene: New York City, 1928. The dazzling lights cast shadows that grow ever darker as the glitzy prosperity of the Roaring Twenties screeches to a halt. Enter a cast of familiar characters: a young girl, Samantha White, returning after being sent away by her cruel stepmother, the Queen of the Follies, years earlier; her father, the King of Wall Street, who survives the stock market crash only to suffer a strange and sudden death; seven street urchins, brave protectors for a girl as pure as snow; and a mysterious stock ticker that holds the stepmother in its thrall, churning out ticker tape imprinted with the wicked words "Another . . . More Beautiful . . . KILL." In a moody, cinematic new telling of a beloved fairy tale, extraordinary graphic novelist Matt Phelan captures the essence of classic film noir on the page—and draws a striking distinction between good and evil.

Because... It's the last book in the series and I think it will be epic

The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Release Date: November 29 2016
Goodreads Summary: In less than a year, Kelsea Glynn has transformed from a gawky teenager into a powerful monarch. As she has come into her own as the Queen of the Tearling, the headstrong, visionary leader has also transformed her realm. In her quest to end corruption and restore justice, she has made many enemies—including the evil Red Queen, her fiercest rival, who has set her armies against the Tear.

To protect her people from a devastating invasion, Kelsea did the unthinkable—she gave herself and her magical sapphires to her enemy—and named the Mace, the trusted head of her personal guards, Regent in her place. But the Mace will not rest until he and his men rescue their sovereign, imprisoned in Mortmesne.

Now, as the suspenseful endgame begins, the fate of Queen Kelsea—and the Tearling itself—will finally be revealed.

What are you waiting on?

  1. Ohh I love all the covers for the Queen of the Tearling series books! I didn't know there was going to be a Snow White graphic novel! This is so so exciting since I'm trying to get into more graphic novels as of late.

  2. I still need to read the second Tearling book. Is it good? The covers are so awesome! I am currently reading the Outlander series, so it will be a while before I can pick it back up!

    1. The second one isn't quite as good as the first one, but worth the read. I made it through two Outlander books. I really do want to finish that series one day.

  7. I don't read a lot of graphic novels, but that one sounds awesome. I'm waiting on the last Tearling book to read the second one...I hate the wait between book 2 and 3.

    Thanks for sharing these!
