Waiting on Wednesday: Tris and Izzie

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


This week....wow, I just REALLY, REALLLY love that cover. The colors really work for me and a guy without a shirt is, no offense, always a plus, and that is an adorable boat in an adorable lake with adorable little flowers falling. PLUS, Tristan and Isolde, in a re-telling, is just too good to pass up! You agree you say? Well, I'm glad, we can wait together salivating until it comes out in October. Yeah, sorry, it's a ways away.

(UNOFFICAL description, subject to alteration) 

A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzy", 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 withTristan, the new guy at school. 

Light, contemporary romantic fantasy for teens.


Have a happy week!
