Waiting on Wednesday (102)

Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week...

by Alethea Kontis
To be released: May 08, 2012

Summary from Barnes and Noble:
"Sunday Woodcutter is the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, youngest sister to the other six days of the week, and the things she writes come true. One day, by a Fairy Well in the Enchanted Wood, Sunday meets a frog who asks about her stories. The two become friends, but not until they learn to truly love one another does Sunday's kiss transform him back into his original form: Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland, a man Sunday's father despises.

Rumbold returns to his castle and--as Sunday was not present for his transformation--orders three days of festivities and invites every eligible young woman in the land. His intention is to make Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, and not the frog he was. Rumbold's father, a king with no name wrapped in a dark and sinister curse of his own, decides to take this opportunity to seek a new bride for himself, as well.

Sunday is forced to deal with the mysterious loss of her new friend, the sudden strong feelings she has for a man she doesn't know, the magical powers that have suddenly been unleashed within her, and twisted family secrets that lead her on to the adventure of a lifetime...and deep into danger."

Retelling of the Princess and the Frog?! I'm in! Not to mention that it seems to take the story a bit further - after the "happily ever after" part. I think it sounds like a wonderful story and I'm excited to read it!

What are you waiting on this week?
