Dreaming Books - 8.04.10

Dreaming Books is a new meme I'm starting up on my site to let you know what old, current or upcoming book(s) I'm excited for and dreaming to get someday *sigh*. The books are in keeping with my usual genre favorites - YA, Jane Austen, steampunk, vampires, werewolves and zombiessssss.

Similar to Waiting on Wednesday and On My Wishlist memes already out there. If you have a post for books on your "want list" feel free to send me your link in comments. I'd be interested in taking a peek into what you're dreaming of...


Today I'm picking out a few books based on covers and the fairy tale theme.

The Amaranth Enchantment
by Julie Berry

The Diamond Secret
by Suzanne Weyn

by Helen Lowe

When Rose Wakes
by Christopher Golden

The World Above
by Cameron Dokey

Tell me if any of these appeal to you and they just might show up during Fairy Tales in bruges week, August 23-29, 2010.

If you didn't already know it, these books will be featured during Fairy Tales in bruges week and the authors have all agreed to guest post and give away copies of their books! Can I get some HUZZAH's!

The Healer's Apprentice
by Melanie Dickerson

The Stumpwork Robe
The Last Stitch (sequel)

  1. Your list sounds allllot like mine :)

    BTW Amaranth Enchantment is quite cute!

  2. omg i LOVED amaranth enchantment!!! all of the others look great too, i love fairy tale retellings.

  3. I enjoyed Amaranth Enchantment. Glad to see it on here! And the others look fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

  4. What a great meme!=) I will have to partake in this one some time.
    All the covers are appealing. I long to have a dress tailored for me like in The Amaranth Enchantment and The Healer's Apprentice.

  5. The Amaranth Enchantment looks very pretty.

  6. I'm very curious about When Rose Wakes. I loved Soulless by Golden, so I wonder how he tackles fairy tales.
    And I just won Thornspell last Monday. I will let you know what I think of it once it get here and I read it.

  7. All these books appeal to me! >_< Great list!!!

  8. Oh my goodness ... ALL these covers are dazzling! I don't know which book is about what, but simply based on the titles/covers I'm especially intrigued by The World Above, When Rose Wakes, and the Amaranth Enchantment!!!

    Awesome selection, V :D

  9. Thornspell and When Rose Wakes look frigging awesome!!!

  10. I voting for The Amaranth Enchantment, but they all sound good.

  11. I want every single one of these books except Thornspell, but that's because that book and I have a small history. XD

  12. I'm sorry to say I'm not a great fan of rewritten faery tales, but I guess, if I had to choose, I'd go for Thornspell, as it looks the most original...

  13. Oh, they all look interesting, can't wait to see what you pick!
    Love the idea of fairy tale re=tellings!
