Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
Dead Upon a Time by Elizabeth Paulson
Expected Release Date: August 25, 2015
It’s a fairy-tale nightmare . . .
One girl is kept in a room where every day the only food she’s given is a poisoned apple. Another is kept in a room covered in needles — and if she pricks her finger, she’ll die. Then there are the brother and sister kept in a cell that keeps getting hotter and hotter. . .
A sinister kidnapper is on the loose in Kate’s world. She’s not involved until one day she heads to her grandmother’s house in the woods — and finds her grandmother has also been taken. Already an outcast, Kate can’t get any help from the villagers who hate her. Only Jack, another outsider, will listen to what’s happened.
Then a princess is taken, and suddenly the king is paying attention — even though the girl’s stepmother would rather he didn’t. It’s up to Kate and Jack to track down the victims before an ever after arrives that’s far from happy.

The past few weeks have been pretty horror-book heavy, and this week is no different. I’m excited about the Halloween season and can’t wait to read some good fun horror. This looks like it might fit the bill, in a fantastical sort of way. I can’t wait to see what the book has in store.
What are you waiting on this week?
