All I Want For Christmas Is...
This is a feature/meme created by Danya @ A Tapestry of Words where you choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto your wishlist – and I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! So if you want to make your own blog post about it, please link up here. :)
My pick for this week is...
"The Diamond Secret: A Retelling of Anastasia"
by Suzanne Weyn
Series: Once Upon A Time
Genre: Fairy-Tale Romance, Fantasy
Author's website: http://www.suzanneweynbooks.com
Published: June 2009 by Simon Pulse
A Retelling of "Anastasia"Nadya is a mischievous kitchen girl in a Russian tavern. Having nearly drowned in the Iset River during the turmoil of the Revolution, she has no memory of her past and longs for the life she cannot remember.PThen two young men arrive at the tavern and announce that Nadya's long-lost grandmother has sent them to find her. Yearning for family and friendship, she agrees to accompany them to Paris for the joyful reunion. Nadya eagerly embarks on her journey, never dreaming it will be one of laughter, love #151; and betrayal.
Why I added this one to my Christmas wishlist:
I have wanted to read this book for a long time. I have a love for fairy-tale retellings and fantasy so I think I would really enjoy this book and I also want to read some of the others in the series which are all based on a different fairy-tale. And of course the cover! Did you get a look at this beautiful cover? Anyone that knows me knows I'm a sucker for a beautiful cover. =) hehe
