Waiting On Wednesday 4-4-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.


This week my pick is Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson. Why? Because I love Peter Pan, and I think it's awesome that we get a story about Tiger Lily!! Besides gorgeous cover alert!!!

Overview

15 year old Tiger Lily, proud and fierce, wild and misunderstood, doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland, and immediately falls under his spell. Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, big-hearted but hard to reach, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything - her family, her future - to be with the haunted, hunted, courageous boy who loves her. When - as a punishment for her rebellious ways - she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter. With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart. 

This book just sounds super incredible. I can't wait to get my hands on it. I love the premise and I love the cover. What more can I say? Totally excited for this one. 

I have decided to just do Waiting on Wednesday posts instead of a combined WoW and a WWW Wednesday. I really did enjoy the WWW posts too, but it is more time consuming, and honestly the interest is pretty low for it. I get a good response for my WoW though and will continue to do it each week. Leave me your link and I will check yours out. :)

  5. Ha, I just left a comment below another Tiger Lily WOW! I think it is fairly impossible for a novel to be made of more Win than this one. Peter Pan, Romance, Retelling. I'm sold!
