Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.
This week, I’m waiting on Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis, which has an expected publication date of October 14, 2014.
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’m always so curious to see how authors can reinvent incredibly well-known stories, especially ones of Snow White’s calibre. Stitching Snow reminds me a bit of Cinder in terms of the missing princess storyline, the mechanic MC, and the sci-fi/interplanetary setting… but since I loved that book, I’m excited to give Stitching Snow a read.
Which books are you waiting on? Leave me a link or a list to your Waiting on Wednesday post below.
I think this one might be too similar to Cinder for me. Only time will tell.
That’s what I’m afraid of. It’s been quite a while since I read Cinder though, so I’m hoping that will reduce the number of similarities…
I saw this one on NetGalley. You should go see if you can snag it! Nice choice this week!
