Waiting on Wednesday (90)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I have another theme! PRINCESSES!!

The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson - To be released September 10th, 2011

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: PRINCESSES!! (Sorry. My inner five year old is a little loud in this post. Anyways. Secret wife?? Sounds awesome. The cover is cool, too.

Just Your Average Princess by Kristina Springer - To be released October 11th, 2011

Jamie Edwards has loved growing up on her family’s pumpkin patch in Average, IL, and she’s always dreamed of one day being the town’s Pumpkin Princess at the annual Pumpkin Festival. But when her rich and famous cousin, Milan Woods, comes to town and changes everything, Jamie knows she has to expose Milan for who she really is and teach her that life’s not all pumpkins and apple butter at the patch.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: Okay, so maybe it's not exactly the same kind of princess, but run with the theme here! I think this looks supercute and I love the cover. That's just adorable.

Peace and cookies,
Laina

  1. My inner five year old loves princesses, too!

    Both very different books but they both look so compelling.

    Thanks for the heads up.
