Can't Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday #249: How to Fracture a Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event which had been hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. I'm now linking up with "Can't-Wait Wednesday" hosted over at Wishful Endings.


Blurb from Goodreads:

Fantasy legend Jane Yolen (The Emerald Circus, The Devil’s Arithmetic) delights with this effortlessly wide-ranging offering of fractured fairy tales. Yolen fractures the classics to reveal their crystalline secrets, holding them to the light and presenting them entirely transformed; where a spinner of straw into gold becomes a money-changer and the big bad wolf retires to a nursing home. Rediscover the fables you once knew, rewritten and refined for the world we now live in―or a much better version of it.

How to Fracture a Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen is expected out November 5th, 2018 from Tachyon Publications.  The table of contents is available on Goodreads

Why am I waiting on this one? I really enjoy fairy tales and retellings. And it's Jane Yolen. It's a perfect pairing.

What book are you waiting on this week? Share it or a link in the comments so we can check it out and maybe add it to our TBR lists. Thanks for coming by and Happy Reading!

  4. I enjoy fairytale retellings. I also love your furbaby pic, one of mine loves the front seat and chilling as if she's an entitled passenger.

    1. My furbaby was sitting in the backseat waiting for my husband to come out of the store when I snapped her pic. Our Golden used to prefer the front seat too.
