Waiting On Wednesday #37

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -

Beauty - Sarah Pinborough @Twitter
ISBN - 9780575093058
Publisher - Gollancz
Expected release date - October 17th 2013
Find - Book Depository/Goodreads

'BEAUTY is a beautifully illustrated retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story which takes all the elements of the classic fairytale that we love (the handsome prince, the ancient curse, the sleeping girl and, of course, the haunting castle) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires. It's fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of ONCE UPON A TIME, GRIMM, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN and more.' - Goodreads

No blurb but it's enough info to know that I definitely want to read this version of Sleeping Beauty! 

What are you waiting for?
