This week's can't wait to read it selection is...

A White So Red
by Krystle Jones
Take back what is yours.

Seventeen-year-old Snow’s life changed forever the night her stepmother, the Queen, sent her huntsman to cut out her heart. Fleeing for her life, Snow runs to the Silver Forest, a place as dangerous as it is enchanting, and begins an adventure she could never have dreamed.

With no one at her side but a rowdy band of carnivorous dwarves and an arrogant, rogue prince who’s too handsome for his own good, Snow must confront the challenge that’s been laid before her: Kill the Queen, and take back the kingdom that should have been hers.

But if she is to succeed, Snow will have to tap into a powerful, ancient form of magic, one that may have been sleeping inside her all along.

A White So Red is a dark, sexy retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

Why I Want It: I absolutely loved The Scarlet Dagger, so I am extremely curious to see what Krystle will do with Snow White in A White So Red. It's funny how life works. Up until recently, Snow White is a fairy tale that I would generally have said doesn't get a lot of retellings done. But between this book, upcoming movies next year and who knows what else, it seems that Snow White is ready for her moment in the limelight. How do you guys think that will go?

If you are curious about A White So Red or all of the Snow White stuff going on in general, here is a link to an article on Krystle's blog that talks about Snow White and includes a sample from A White So Red.

So, what are you looking forward to this week? I'd love to know!
