Expected release date - July 18th 2013
Find - Book Depository/Goodreads

CHARM is a beautifully illustrated re-telling of the Cinderella story which takes all the much-loved elements of the classic fairytale (the handsome prince, the fairy godmother, the enchanted mouse, the beautiful girl and, of course, the iconic balls) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires. This is fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of ONCE UPON A TIME, GRIMM, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and more.This edition contains 15 original pen and ink illustrations by Les Edwards. - Goodreads

No real blurb as such but suffice to say it's a fairly adult retelling of Cinderella! I love the cover, matches Poison perfectly and I can't wait to see the illustrations in this one!

What's your WoW this week?
