Waiting on Wednesday: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!

Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

I love fairy tale retellings, I'm always curious to see how the authors will put their own spin on the original story. What makes me so excited is the fact that Beauty is a hunter! For some reason, I automatically started picturing Katniss as Beauty, or in this case, Yeva ^_^ 


What do you guys think of this one? Is it already on your TBR? Are you adding it now? Let me know!

New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner grew up reading and writing every spare moment of the day, while dreaming about life as an archaeologist, a marine biologist, an astronaut. She graduated from Hamilton College in New York with a degree in playwriting, and has spent several years since then living in Australia. She's traveled with her family all over the world to places like Egypt, South Africa, the Arctic, Greece, Antarctica, and the Galapagos, and there's a bit of every trip in every story she writes.

She currently lives and writes in Asheville, North Carolina, but the siren call of travel is hard to resist, and there's no telling how long she'll stay there. She's the author of the award-winning Starbound trilogy (These Broken Stars, This Shattered World, Their Fractured Light) and the Skylark Trilogy (Skylark, Shadowlark, Lark Ascending) as well as the upcoming Beauty and the Beast retelling Hunted.

 In her spare time she plays guitar, plays video games, plays with her cat, and reads.

  1. This book sounds amazing!!! If there is one genre that I have to choose as my favourite, it would be a fairy tale retelling. I think that you are right that this one does have a Katniss feel to it. Adding to GR immediately! Thanks for sharing this one! :)

  2. Brittany, did you nab this one from Edelweiss? It's on there! I'm excited to read it. I didn't really love Spooner's debut trilogy, but I loved the Starbound series with Kaufman. Hopefully this new solo project does not disappoint! I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it, Brittany!

    Have a lovely week. =)

  8. I'm super excited for this one both for the retelling aspect and because I've never read any of Meagan Spooner's books except her collab with Amie Kaufman (which I completely loved)!! So curious to read one of her solo stories! :D
