One of my WOW's today features my favorite TV show on television, Once Upon A Time. OUAT features Grimm Fairy Tale re-tellings and I can't get enough of the show, so I'm hoping the book version is just as good. My second WOW is The Sound, by Sarah Alderson, the same author who penned Hunting Lila. The Sound, sounds (no pun intended) like a great beachy read. It seems filled with a great mystery of sorts as well. Since the setting of both of these books is in New England, I already have a special liking to them.
So what's holding court on your WOW post? Link me, so I can visit.
|A Once Upon A Time Tale|
Expected publication: May 4th 2013 by Disney Hyperion Books
Emma Swan's life has been anything but a fairy tale. She's been on her own since she was abandoned as a baby--that is, until the night of her twenty-eighth birthday, when Henry, a ten-year-old boy, shows up on her doorstep. He's the son Emma gave up for adoption, and this surprise visit turns her life upside down.
Henry takes Emma back to his home in Storybrooke, Maine, where, Henry claims, all the residents are actually fairy tale characters who can't remember their true identities. And if Henry's right, that means that his sweet-natured, lonely schoolteacher Mary Margaret Blanchard is really Snow White, the iconic princess ... and also Emma's long-lost mother.
In Fairy Tale Land, we meet Snow White as a bandit on the run, forced into exile by her stepmother, the Evil Queen. Snow's a young woman learning to become a hero, who will do anything to live happily ever after with her one true love, Prince Charming.
The closer Emma comes to Henry in Storybrooke, the harder it is for her to ignore the dark curse that haunts this small New England town and binds her to Mary Margaret. If Emma can learn to accept her destiny as Storybrooke's savior and break the curse, she just might get the family reunion she's dreamed about her entire life.
ABC's "ONCE UPON A TIME" is a modern adventure with thrilling twists and hints of darkness, brimming with wonder, and filled with the magic of our most beloved fairy tales
