WoW 14. Snow white Sorrow & Dust.

Snow White Sorrow (The Grimm Diaries, #1)The real Snow White... living in the ruins of an ancient castle in a small town. She is described as horribly beautiful, terrifyingly enchanting, and wickedly lovely.

What he finds instead is a beautiful monster girl filled with rage and hurt, who has an epic untold story to tell of things such like why the Brothers Grimm altered the fairy tale, who the Evil Queen really is, where the mirror came from, and who possessed it.

Snow White has killed every person who has dared come near the castle where she once lived with the queen. Mysteriously, she lets Loki live.
To read the whole synopsis, you can click on this  link to Goodreads. I've found out about this book today and there's a lot going on. You can find out by going through the reviews. Expected publication: October 30th 2012.

Dust4. The number of times my delicate wings have been broken and clamped behind my back.
68. The number inked upon my skin marking me the sixty-eighth pixie to be stolen.
87. The number of days I’ve been wrongfully imprisoned by the fairies.
88. The first day the faeries will regret stealing me.

So, that's it for today! What is your pick this week?

  2. I love fairy tale retelling. Glad I found this one.

  3. Oh holy wow, I LOVE your picks! The second I saw the cover of Snow White Sorrow, I knew I would have to add it to my TBR list. And Dust sounds like it's going to be really good too! I can't wait!

    Here’s my WoW

  8. I've been a little hesitant of Snow White Sorrow. Its synopsis is heavily derivative of Anna Dressed in Blood and the Mortal Instruments (some pieces are nearly the same word-for-word) and that is never a good sign for whatever is inside the novel.

  9. Snow White Sorrow looks awesome. I have not seen it before, but I am intrigued.

  10. Oh my gosh, Mel, how have I not heard of Snow White Sorrow before? It sounds SO EPIC! The cover is enough to reel me in, and that tag line gives me the chills: "All monsters must die except the beautiful ones...." I couldn't be more intrigued about this book if your strapped me to a chair and hypnotized me into it! x)

    Awesome picks for your WOW this week, Mel! I can't wait to read SWS and see more about Dust! :) <3

  11. I love Snow White! Retellings are always fun. I love the sound of Dust. I'm waiting on that one too since I love kidnapping stories and fae books! Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Your picks are awesome and that is one bad-ass sounding Snow White. Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my post :)

  13. I love retellings and its my first time hearing about Snow White Sorrow. It sounds so different and even the cover is a little creepy.

  14. I'm very curious about Snow White Sorrow! It doesn't sound like my kind of book, but I'm definitely intrigued about the dark twist of Snow White fairy tale! x) Dust seems very promising - I LOVE books about fairies! <3

    Awesome pick for WOW this week, Mel! :)

  15. Never heard of either of these. They both sound creepy...which is for coming by today.

  22. Great picks :) !! I want to read them both .. I'm adding them to my wishlist !!

  23. I am a huge fan of fairytales and the different ways people interpret them (like grimm and once upon a time) so the snow white one seems really exciting! Also the second one is very interesting!
