Wednesday Wishlist #21 - Fairytale Edition

Oh yes, another fairytale edition.

Heartless - Marissa Meyer

Another Alice in Wonderland retelling, this time a prequel set in the world of Wonderland, telling of how a marquis' teenage daughter becomes the Queen of Hearts.

Atlantia - Ally Condie

A story that appears to be based on The Little Mermaid, only apparently much more grand in scale and a bit more to do with Siren legend as well. I love Ally Condie's writing, so I am really hoping that this is as riveting as her previous books.

Winterspell - Claire Legrand

A mayor's daughter leading a double life, an abduction, a cursed Prince, a faerie Queen and a strange new land. All of this somehow rolls into being an adaptation of The Nutcracker. It sounds really interesting. is it just me, or does the girl on the cover really look like Kristen Stewart?

Shards of a Glass Slipper - Roy A. Mauntsen

Multiple fairytale princesses, a tyrannical version of Cinderella, a war with Wonderland, some murdered fairy Godmothers and a young girl named Patience Muffet who holds the shards of Cinderella's glass slippers. Sounds like a recipe for some awesomeness. This appears to be a fantasy epic and part of a series which I am bound to love.
