WOW: Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, highlighting the upcoming releases being eagerly awaited by all of us bibliophiles.

This week's Waiting on Wednesday title is:

Tris and Izzie
Here's the Goodreads synopsis:

A modern retelling of the German fairytale "Tristan and Isolde", Tris and Izzie is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until -- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.

Lately, I've been enjoying modern re-tellings of classic tales.  I've always loved the story of Tristan & Isolde/Iseult and its many variations.  I'm curious to see how Mettie Ivie Harrison tells their tale.


  1. The cover for this is just lovely. I hope it lives up to your expectations when you get it =]

    The Cait Files

  2. There are just so many fairy tales being revisited, I am loving it. I hope you enjoy it!

    My WoW choice is just around the corner :)

  3. This one does sound awesome...thanks for sharing!

    Here's MY WOW POST

  4. I want to read this one SO bad! It looks like such a fun read and the COVER IS FABULOUS! She was at ALA and I wish I could have been there to meet her!

  5. I like the idea of this book, but I've read one by her and I wasn't a fan. Maybe I'll give her another try with this one.

  6. I love fairy tale retellings! I'll probably read this when it's out.
