Waiting on Wednesday #8 - Tris & Izzie

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on:
Tris & Izzie
Author: Mette Ivie Harrison
Release Date:
October 11th 2011
Publisher: Egmont USA

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 with Tristan, the new guy at school.

Light, contemporary romantic fantasy for teens.

Why I'm waiting on this book
:
Well, it sounds absolultely fascinating. It sounds like a great love story. I'm definitely going to see if I can find any books on Tristan and Isolde before this book is released. It also really helps that the cover is stunning! Go add this to your TBR list!

  34. Thanks for stopping by. If you would like an account based on the original tale of Tristan & Isolde, you might try The Romance of Tristan and Iseult by Joseph Bedier. A good fiction series is Rosalind Miles' Tristan & Isolde series. There are three of those and I absolutely loved them. Cheers!

    Right now I am waiting on Chronicles of Nick: Invincible. Not so much the book but the time to read it. In my mind I was telling myself to hurry up and finish the book I am currently reading. I had to yell at myself because the book that is being read deserves my attention as well.
