Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. The aim is to let everyone know what book or books you are anticipating this week!

Hunted by Meagan Spooner
Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them. 

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance. 

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?

Why I want to read it:
Honestly, I've heard the best things about this book. Not to mention I am very very excited for the beauty and the beast film coming out and this is just fuelling my excitement! I don't really read many re-tellings but it's a genre I want to get into more because I feel like I'd actually really enjoy them. Plus, the cover though. It's gorgeous right?

  4. I've heard quite a few good things about this too! I'm a sucker for fairytale retellings, so I was going to read this anyways, but the fact that it's a Beauty and the Beast retelling, AND the positive response AND the gorgeous cover is making me want to read it so, so bad!!!
    Hoping to get my hands on it soon, and hope you enjoy it too once you get around to it!

  6. I didn't realize initially that this was a beauty & the Beast spinoff or re- telling, but that awesome cover always catches my eye. Sounds like it maybe changes things up a little though? I hope it's good!
