Waiting on Wednesday (8): Nameless (Tales of Beauty and Madness, #1) by Lili St. Crow

As most of you know, W.O.W. is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that helps bloggers showcase those books that they can't wait to get their hands on!  I'm changing things up a little bit this week and going with a few different picks, rather than just one! I'm showcasing a book this week that I saw on another blog (I can't remember where I saw this book so if you recently used this in a WOW post or if you recently reviewed it, thank you for letting me know about this book!)

When Camille was six years old, she was discovered alone in the snow by Enrico Vultusino, godfather of the Seven—the powerful Families that rule magic-ridden New Haven. Papa Vultusino adopted the mute, scarred child, naming her after his dead wife and raising her in luxury on Haven Hill alongside his own son, Nico.

Now Cami is turning sixteen. She’s no longer mute, though she keeps her faded scars hidden under her school uniform, and though she opens up only to her two best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and to Nico, who has become more than a brother to her. But even though Cami is a pampered Vultusino heiress, she knows that she is not really Family. Unlike them, she is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it’s not until she meets the mysterious Tor, who reveals scars of his own, that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her birth…to find out where she comes from and why her past is threatening her now.

New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow thrilled legions of fans with her dark paranormal series Strange Angels. Now she has crafted an evocative update of Snow White, set in a vividly imagined world and populated by unforgettable new characters

The book I picked this week is Nameless by Lili St. Crow. This modern retelling of Snow White sounds so interesting and different. I'm currently reading Cinder, a retelling of Cinderella and I'm falling in love with the story and the characters. These unique fairy tales bring me back to my childhood and make me so happy. The creativity that these authors bring to these storiesis simply tremendous and I can't wait to read even more of them.

What are you waiting on? Leave me your links in the comments section so I can check out your posts!

  1. LOVE the cover on this one! It sounds fabulous. Since I'm a huge fan of Once Upon A Time, I really should look into some Fairytale retellings.
