Waiting on Wednesday (45): Towering

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature, which is brought to you by Jill at Breaking the Spine! This meme is where you can post about what book(s) you're really look forward to.

This week, I absolutely can't wait for...


Towering by Alex Flinn
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 cannot wait for Towering!  I've always really liked Alex Flinn's modern re-tellings of fairy tales that we've grown up listening to and reading about.  This one sounds super cool though because this time it's Rapunzel's turn to get her modern twist!

What are you waiting for today?

  1. Great choice...I'm adding this to my TBR pile! Here's my WoW: http://www.bookclublibrarian.com/2013/02/waiting-on-wednesday-new-suspense.html

  2. I didn't love Flinn's Beastly, but this one sounds like it has a little something extra. I'll have to look it up when it comes out - I'm a sucker for fairy tales! Great pick.
