I recently made a few preorders on The Book Depository. They're probably my most anticipated books of 2015 (which is proven by the fact that I preordered them), and they all come out in May. I'll probably have a photo-filled post once all the books have arrived, but today I thought I would discuss them and why I am anticipating them in a sort of hybrid Waiting on Wednesday (credit to Breaking the Spine for that).
*All of the synopses are obtained from Goodreads.
The main reason though, is that it is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. This alone makes me feel like squealing, because I love that fairytale to bits. It's possibly because Belle was the Disney princess I related to most as a kid, considering she had brown hair like me, and loved the library and reading. Maybe it's because I like the idea that there are people who don't judge you based on your appearance and first impressions and wait to get to know you... Okay, I'm getting a tad off track.
This book also heavily involves faeries, which I am excited about, though I don't think I've read a novel centring around faeries for quite a while.
Anyway, here's the synopsis, if you're interested:
The next book I ordered is Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge. First of all, just look at that gorgeous cover. I can't wait to get my hands on it - and it will be my second personally-owned hardcover so that's going to be great. Last year I read Rosamund Hodge's other YA book, Cruel Beauty - which is, coincidentally, a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I couldn't have possibly adored it more. I couldn't even write a review because I didn't have to words to describe how much I loved it. I don't know if Crimson Bound can live up to Cruel Beauty, but I'm sure that I'll love it either way. Also, I can't seem to get Gilded Ashes in Australia, which is really bothering me.
If you can't tell by the cover, this is another retelling - this time of Little Red Riding Hood. Again, here's the synopsis:
This is the synopsis for the third book, but be warned, if you haven't read the first two books you should skip it because it will contain spoilers.
There's also a few other books coming out in May that I'm pretty excited for, despite having not preordered them. Here they are below, linked to their Goodreads page.
Are you looking forward to any of these books? Already read any? Let me know!
