Waiting on Wednesday (#88): Dearest by Alethea Kontis


"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'm featuring:


Dearest by Alethea Kontis
Book Three of the Woodcutters Sisters series
Publication Date: February 3, 2015

Summary (from Goodreads):

Readers met the Woodcutter sisters (named after the days of the week) in Enchanted and Hero. In this delightful third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday’s palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he’s her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday’s unique magic somehow break the spell?

  1. YES! I cannot wait to read this one! Alethea says she plans on writing a book for each sister and I am loving it! I read Hero when it came out, but I remember enjoying it just as much as Enchanted!

    1. Enchanted came out years ago, maybe that's why. And it almost seems like Hero and Dearest are flying under the radar a bit... but it's a fabulous series. I hope you enjoy the books if you read them, Roy!

  21. Is it bad that I don't remember Enchanted that much? I swear I read it, but I couldn't tell you a thing about it... I do LOVE the fairy tale this one is based off of, though, so I'll have to read it! I adore these covers, too. :) Great pick Alyssa!
