*Waiting on a Wednesday is a weekly feature in which I spotlight upcoming releases that I can’t wait to read!
This week, I am waiting on Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik.

I’m a sucker for retellings. This book seems like it will be a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, which is a fairytale that I’m not entirely familiar with, but has been included in countless modern day stories (Shrek, Once Upon a Time, etc.). I’m very interested to see how Naomi Novik will reinterpret this story.
I previously read Uprooted by Naomi Novik, which was a rough retelling of Beauty and the Beast that took place in Eastern Europe. It was captivating, unique, and beautifully written. The author took the original story and made it something entirely different than any other Beauty and the Beast retelling I’ve read before. It was dark and gothic, with intrigue and a little bit of romance. It also had a tortured antihero, which is my favorite character trope ever.
While this will be an entirely different story, it seems like the two will be similar. I can’t wait to get my hands on this beauty and add it to my shelf!
Spinning Silver is set for publication on July 10th, 2018
