On My Wishlist: July 16, 2011: 07/15/11

On My WishlistLast week I was busy with homework and my reading eyes were larger than my reading stomach. I ended up having to send Diving into the Wreck by Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix back unread.

I am currently reading Rampant by Diana Peterfreund. I'm only at the beginning but I'm liking it so far.

My total wishlist stands at 856 books, an increase of 2 books since last week.

Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):

  • The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer
  • Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock
  • The Wide-awake Princess by E.D. Baker
  • Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  • Tall Blondes: a Book About Giraffes by Lynn Sherr
  • Roller Skates by Ruth Sawyer
  • Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
  • Amulet: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi
  • Dreaming in Hindi: Coming Awake in Another Language by Katherine Russell Rich
  • Agatha H and the Airship City: a Girl genius novel by Phil & Kaja Foglio
  • The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer

The Featured Wish for July 16, 2010:

cover artRapunzel's Daughters and Other Tales edited by Bill Racicot (Recommended by A Bookish Affair)

What happens after the "Happily Ever After"...?

30 writers answer questions that no one has dared ask before about your favorite fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and legends. What dark arts will Little Miss Muffet employ to exact her revenge on the spider? Can a guide help the Big, Bad Wolf succeed in eating Little Red Riding Hood without getting caught? Is Prince Charming gay? And will the Beast get tired of ravishing Beauty, and instead turn his attention to Lady Gaga?

All of these answers and more can be found in 31 original stories full of indecisive princesses, talking wolves, unhappy frogs, wicked witches, with a liberal sprinkling of fairy dust, magical transformations, and psychotherapy.

I got interested in the Rapunzel story after reading Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale and illustrated by Nathan Hale. After that came Tangled, one of Disney's best films. So this collection of short stories, sounds interesting.

It does sound very good. If I find a copy I will review it.

Melissa (Books and things)

Oh I've heard of this one. It sounds good.

Great! Maybe we'll both be sharing reviews in the future.

Wow, amazing! This is the kind of book I'd love to read in one day! Thanks for sharing it with us :D Thanks for coming by my blog too, hehe.

You're welcome. Happy reading.

Ooh, EYE OF THE CROW is really, really good! I won it during a BBAW giveaway a couple of years ago. I'd never heard of it before and was thrilled at how much I enjoyed it.

Pussreboots

Thanks. I hope to get started with it soon.

Some great choices in there. I don't know most of them but I love fairy tale retellings so Rapunzel's Daughters will have to go on my wishlist, and Inside Out I've wanted to read for months now! Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, as well, sounds fantastic. I actually found a copy in the charity shop I volunteer in around Christmas, just haven't had chance to read it yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Inside Out is my next TBR. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan had to go back to the library before I could read it. I'll try again after the film is out of the theaters.

Hannah

Great concept for a book and short stories. Does Happily Ever After exist...? Sounds like an interesting twist.



Comment #12: Sunday, July 16, 2011 at 23:57:00

Pussreboots

Hopefully it pays off. Happy reading.

Kristin @ Book Sniffers Anonymous

I have Snow Flower but have yet to read it. A friend gave it to me before she moved and I planned on reading it but I just keep picking up other books instead.



Comment #14: Sunday, July 16, 2011 at 23:59:25

Pussreboots

I had to send my copy back to the library. It's very popular with the film coming out.

Safari Poet

I remember seeing this a while ago. It sounds like a good read. There is a different edition already available if you're in a hurry to read it.

Pussreboots

I'm in no hurry. I have tons and tons of other wishlist books to find and read.
