Waiting on Wednesday #19: HUNTED - by Meagan Spooner


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming book releases we're excited to read. On my blog, I include movies as well.


Release Date: 14 March 2017.  

Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them. So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

Fairy tale retellings are my thing. I AM SERIOUSLY ADDICTED TO THEM. And with this GORGEOUS cover (LOVE the green cloak and brown hair...), beautiful premise, and AWESOME tag line ("A Beauty deadlier than the Beast") I am officially OBSESSED WITH THE THOUGHT OF THIS BEAUTY (note my brilliant pun).




Anyone else excited for Hunted?

  8. I am looking forward to reading this book, hopefully soon! I've enjoyed Spooner's books (more so her co-written ones than her solo ones), so I'm excited to read this new series. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Amy!
