Waiting on Wednesday
Welcome to my WOW, or HOW as I like to call it where I feature an upcoming release that I'm hyperventilating for! It's totally fun to geek out about upcoming releases! This event is hosted by the lovely Jill @ Breaking The Spine. Today's awesome-sauce pick is....

Strands of Bronze and Gold 
by Jane Nickerson
TBP: 3.12.13 by Random House
Goodreads / Purchase
The Bluebeard fairy tale retold. . . . When seventeen-year-old Sophia Petheram’s beloved father dies, she receives an unexpected letter. An invitation—on fine ivory paper, in bold black handwriting—from the mysterious Monsieur Bernard de Cressac, her godfather. With no money and fewer options, Sophie accepts, leaving her humble childhood home for the astonishingly lavish Wyndriven Abbey, in the heart of Mississippi.

Sophie has always longed for a comfortable life, and she finds herself both attracted to and shocked by the charm and easy manners of her overgenerous guardian. But as she begins to piece together the mystery of his past, it’s as if, thread by thread, a silken net is tightening around her. And as she gathers stories and catches whispers of his former wives—all with hair as red as her own—in the forgotten corners of the abbey, Sophie knows she’s trapped in the passion and danger of de Cressac’s intoxicating world.

Why I'm Hyperventilating:
So during last week's WOW session I heard about this from a blogger friend @ Debz Bookshelf who was waiting on this one. I FREAKED OUT. Literally on her blog. So now I'm going to hyperventilate on my blog. See, I kinda have this thing for the absurd, unknown fairy-tales out there, and Bluebeard is one of them. The only reason I know about it is from a BIG HUGE book we had when I was really little with lots of fairy-tales including lots of uncommon ones.

The story of Bluebeard has like ALWAYS fascinated me. Ever since that kids book. It's TOTALLY creepy, and So strange and weird, but awesome at the same time? It's funny how it works that way. lol. So that fact that this author decided to retell it is.....UH-MAZE-ING! People, if you haave NEVER-EVER heard of this book, you must read the read the gist on WIKIPEDIA. If you like creepy stories or uncommon fairy-tales then you will probably freak out like me. 

So I'm TOTALLY totally looking forward to this book! It sounds like it will be just as creepy as the original, and with that gorgeous cover, it's bound to be delicious to me. And the rest of the bookiverse. Meeeeeeeeep!!!! Yay!

So whatcha hyperventilating/wishing/waiting for this week? 
Leave a link peeps!
