Goodreads Summary:
Rhiannon Thomas's dazzling debut novel is a spellbinding reimagining of Sleeping Beauty and what happens after happily ever after.

One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that she should be living happily ever after. But as Aurora understands all too well, the truth is nothing like the fairy tale.

Her family is long dead. Her "true love" is a kind stranger. And her whole life has been planned out by political foes while she slept.

As Aurora struggles to make sense of her new world, she begins to fear that the curse has left its mark on her, a fiery and dangerous thing that might be as wicked as the witch who once ensnared her. With her wedding day drawing near, Aurora must make the ultimate decision on how to save her kingdom: marry the prince or run.

Rhiannon Thomas weaves together vivid scenes of action, romance, and gorgeous gowns to reveal a richly imagined world … and Sleeping Beauty as she’s never been seen before.
  
Not Disney's version of the fairy tale. I'd love to see what kind of a spin is put into this story :D

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  11. This doooooes look beautiful. xD I love fairy tale retellings. I do! Although I wonder if they're really getting flooded at the moment? Not even worrying. x) I have too much fun with them! And Sleeping Beauty isn't done as much, I don't think (?) so definitely curious! *dashes to Goodreads*
