This week, our pick is As Old asTime : A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell (Disney Hyperion).
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming book they’re most looking forward to read!
Expected publication: September 6th 2016 by Disney Press
When Belle touches the Beast's enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle's mind—memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her mother is none other than the beautiful enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making.
Why I'm waiting:
After the release of the live-action Beauty and Beast teaser trailer:
(I'm going to admit right now: I went online to see if the DVD was out of the vault, and screamed a little to myself when I saw the still-in-vault third-party retailer price. I WILL OWN YOU SOON, MY PRETTY.)
So this book = brilliant timing. Also, Belle's mom had very little to do with the original film, so I can't wait to see what they're going to do with her in this book.
