Waiting On Wednesday (17)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, in which we highlight an upcoming book release we're eagerly awaiting.

This week I'm waiting on Tris & Izzie, a modern retelling of the German legend, "Tristan and Isolde", by Mette Ivie Harrison. I love myth/fairy tale retellings, and on top of that, I ADORE this cover!

A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzie", is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until-- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love withTristan, the new guy at school. 

[Synopsis by Goodreads]

Tris & Izzie is expected to come out on the 11th of October.

Feel free to leave a link to your own Waiting On Wednesday post in the comments, and I'll be sure to have a look.
