Waiting on Wednesday- Snow White Sorrow

It seems like such a long time since I've done this...

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we show off books that we want to read but have not been published yet. 

Title: Snow White Sorrow
Author: Cameron Jace
Release Date: 30 October 2012
Link to / Summary from Goodreads:  What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?
Sixteen year old Loki Blackstar is no Prince Charming. His mother is a ghost. His only friend is a red Cadillac that talks to him through the radio. He looks like an Angel but acts like jerk. No wonder he has been banned from Heaven, which is the least of his troubles. Loki needs a job to pay for school and support himself.Still, Loki has a rare gift: He is a Dreamhunter. One of the few in the world who can hunt and kill immortal demons in their dreams so they never wake up again.When Loki is sent to kill a sixteen-year-old vampire girl the locals call Snow White Sorrow, he is pulled into a magical but dangerous world. The locals believe the monster to be Snow White.
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. 

Why I want it: I always love fairy tale retellings, and Snow White has been my favourite since forever. However, there's also a lot of suspicous similarities between this and a couple of other books I really really enjoyed. *cough Anna Dressed in Blood cough*.  So it may be cliche and a composite book...or it may not.  I can't tell right away if I'll enjoy it  or not, but it'll be an interesting enough read. 

What are YOU waiting on this week?
PS: Does anyone else want to take celebrate with me in the Month Before Halloween? More info here...

  10. Sounds the cover!

  11. This sounds amazing. Just as I love different perspectives about books, I love different perspectives from book characters. I think it's cool to hear different sides to a story.

  12. Hmmm... sounds like a mash-up of Anna Dressed in Blood and Mortal Instruments. Would love to hear your thoughts if you end up reading it!

  13. Loving the sound of this book!

  14. You're right, it does sounds like a handful of other books in places! I don't think I mind though. It sounds interesting enough for me to want to read it. I love the cover, too. Great pick! :)

  15. This sounds like an interesting take on Snow White. I've never read Anna Dressed in Blood either. I will have to check it out.

  16. Ooh I love fairy tale retellings! And I love the cover as well, fab pick! :)

  17. I think my wishlist has tripled after going through your blog...
    This one sounds awesome!
