Waiting on Wednesday #86 - Letters to Zell by Camille Griep


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

Expected publication:
July 1, 2015 by 47North 
This week, the book I am waiting on is Letters to Zell by Camille Griep. 

From the publisher:
Everything is going according to story for CeCi (Cinderella), Bianca (Snow White), and Rory (Sleeping Beauty)—until the day that Zell (Rapunzel) decides to leave Grimmland and pursue her life. Now, Zell’s best friends are left to wonder whether their own passions are worth risking their predetermined “happily ever afters,” regardless of the consequences. CeCi wonders whether she should become a professional chef, sharp-tongued and quick-witted Bianca wants to escape an engagement to her platonic friend, and Rory will do anything to make her boorish husband love her. But as Bianca’s wedding approaches, can they escape their fates—and is there enough wine in all of the Realm to help them?
In this hilarious modern interpretation of the fairy-tale stories we all know and love, Letters to Zell explores what happens when women abandon the stories they didn’t write for themselves and go completely off script to follow their dreams.
Why am I waiting on this book? I like to see what people do when they play with fairy tales. In Letters to Zell, Camille Griep plays around with some of the best-known fairy tales and asks what if things didn't go as planned for the happily ever after? Would it be better? Or worse? I love retellings, so I will be checking this one out. Plus, it got a starred review in Publishers Weekly.
What book are you waiting on this week? Leave it or a link in the comments so we can check it out. Maybe add it to our ever-growing TBR list.
