Waiting on Wednesday: 01/19/11

Waiting on Wednesday originated here. =]

My pick:
Alex Flinn
Release Date: February 08, 2011


I'm not your average hero. I actually wasn't your average anything. Just a poor guy working an after-school job at a South Beach shoe repair shop to help his mom make ends meet. But a little magic changed it all.

It all started with a curse. And a frognapping. And one hot-looking princess, who asked me to lead a rescue mission.

There wasn't a fairy godmother or any of that. And even though I fell in love along the way, what happened to me is unlike any fairy tale I've ever heard. Before I knew it, I was spying with a flock of enchanted swans, talking (yes, talking!) to a fox named Todd, and nearly trampled by giants in the Everglades.

Don't believe me? I didn't believe it either. But you'll see. Because I knew it all was true, the second I got cloaked.


I loved Beastly, and I'm sure Cloaked is going to be another fantastic fairytale retelling... and a quick read, which is also a bonus!


  1. I like fairytale retellings, but I haven't read any of Alex Flinn. This book is probably going to be my introduction to his writing. Awesome pick.

  2. I think this is a great concept...retelling of fairytales. Plus I love that this is from a guys point of view.
