Waiting on Wednesday 12-19-12

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 I am waiting on Towering by Alex Flinn. I love re-tellings and Rapunzel is one of my favorite fairy tales!! 


  • Publisher: HarperTeen

At first, I merely saw his face, his hands on the window ledge. Then, his whole body as he swung himself through the window. Only I could not see what he swung on.
Until, one day, I told my dream self to look down. And it was then that I saw. He had climbed on a rope. I knew without asking that the rope had been one of my own tying.

Rachel is trapped in a tower, held hostage by a woman she’s always called Mama. Her golden hair is growing rapidly, and to pass the time, she watches the snow fall and sings songs from her childhood, hoping someone, anyone, will hear her.

Wyatt needs time to reflect or, better yet, forget about what happened to his best friend, Tyler. That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.

Dani disappeared seventeen years ago without a trace, but she left behind a journal that’s never been read, not even by her overbearing mother…until now.

A #1 New York Times bestselling author, Alex Flinn knows her fairy tales, and Towering is her most mind-bending interpretation yet. Dark and mysterious, this reimagining of Rapunzel will have readers on the edge of their seats wondering where Alex will take them next!

I love Rapunzel and this sounds like it's going to be fantastic!!! The cover is so pretty too!! What books are you waiting on this week?

  8. I adore Rapunzel, so I'm super stoked for this as well! Plus, that cover is just gorgeous!
    Alex Flinn sounds very familiar. If I'm not mistaken she's the author who wrote Beastly, right?

  12. Oh em gee. How did I not hear of this before? :O I LOVE Alex Flinn books and that she does retellings of fairytales. Beastly was amazing, as was the diary of Lindy, which was the alternate version of that book.

    And that cover. OBSESSED. I am geeking out so much right now. Thanks so much for sharing! :)

  13. Great pick! I love Alex Flinn's takes on fairy tales. I also love the Rapunzel story, mostly because of Tangled. Definitely excited for this one though!

    Thanks for visiting my post!

  14. Great pick! I've not read one of Flinn's books, but I really liked it. Live this cover!

  15. Awesome pick! I can't wait to read this one either. I freaking love Rapunzel and I may have a crush on Flynn Ryder. I haven't read any books by Alex Flinn, which is weird since I love fairy tale retellings but I plan on reading this one.
    And I LOVE this cover! So, so pretty!
