Waiting on Wednesday #31

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!

This week I'm waiting for Roses & Bones by Francesca Lia Block. I already own two of the books in this collection, but I can't resist a good collection with a pretty cover.

In this new volume, three of Francesca Lia Block's works are collected together for the very first time.

In The Rose and the Beast, nine classic fairy tales are turned inside out in classic Block style. Kirkus Reviews said about this Los Angeles Times bestseller, "Block uses language like a jeweled sword, glittering as it cuts to the heart."

In Psyche in a Dress, the Psyche we all know from Greek mythology finds herself in California. Tempted by gods and demons she must discover a way to find herself again.

And in Echo, a retelling of the story of Echo and Narcissus, Echo meets a broken angel, vampires, and the fairy daughter of a rock on her quest for true love.

Love and magic and believing in ourselves are timeless themes, and this new collection will introduce Francesca Lia Block to a whole new generation of readers waiting to fall under her spell.
