Waiting on Wednesday #36

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison.
So let me start first by saying LOOK AT THAT COVER IT'S SO GORGEOUS. This is in my top favorite covers of all time. It's so perfect and pretty and yeah...
Anyways, the other reason I am looking forward to it is I love the originalTristan and Isolde German legend as well as The Romance of Tristan and Iseult. It is a fantastic love story more original than even Shakespeare and I am fascinated to see what Harrison will do with the story.

A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzy", 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.

Unfortunately this wait is going to last until October 11th. I hope I can make it ;)


  1. I can't wait to read this book! The cover is gorgeous too. Great pick!

  2. I can't wait for this one either, the original story is probably one of my favorite legends. I just hope the ending isn't half as tragic (that'd be a major downer in a YA book).

    New post for Debut Author Incites is up :)

  3. Ah prettiest cover ever! <3
    I have a feeling it's going to be amazing.
    Thanks for sharing, :)
