Waiting on Wednesday (141)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
Release date: October 14, 2014

Princess Snow is missing.

Her home planet is filled with violence and corruption at the hands of King Matthias and his wife as they attempt to punish her captors. The king will stop at nothing to get his beloved daughter back—but that’s assuming she wants to return at all.

Essie has grown used to being cold. Temperatures on the planet Thanda are always sub-zero, and she fills her days with coding and repairs for the seven loyal drones that run the local mines.

When a mysterious young man named Dane crash-lands near her home, Essie agrees to help the pilot repair his ship. But soon she realizes that Dane’s arrival was far from accidental, and she’s pulled into the heart of a war she’s risked everything to avoid. With the galaxy’s future—and her own—in jeopardy, Essie must choose who to trust in a fiery fight for survival.

I read a really positive review of this in School Library Journal where the reviewer compares it to the Lunar Chronicles. I wonder if this will be a darker book due to a spoiler in that review (hate spoilers in reviews but maybe it was in SLJ to help school librarians decide if they wanted to purchase it). Also I am anxiously awaiting the start of season 4 of Once Upon a Time and something about this version of Snow White reminds me of Snow from OUAT.


  1. Ohhh! I will have to check this one out. I have been gravitating towards some fairy tale-ish books lately, so I like the sound of this one. Great pick!

  2. Ohh this one sounds so good and I really love that cover. Hope it is worth the wait. Check out our Wow

  3. I love this cover so much! Stitching Snow sounds so good, hopefully it lives up to expectations.Oh gosh, spoilers are the worst though :( I really liked Cinder, so if this is anything like the Lunar Chronicles, it should be good. Thanks for sharing, hope you love it when it’s released!

    My WoW

  4. Ahh I love the sound of this one and that cover is so pretty! I hope you enjoy it! I'm starting season 3 of OUAT and trying hard to catch up before the season premiere! Great pick, thanks for sharing :D

  5. I have heard mixed reviews of this book, but I do like fairy tale retellings. Nice choice.
