“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on Mirrored by Alex Flinn
* I recently finished Bewitching by Alex Flinn and really enjoyed it. My review of that one will be up on Friday. I’ve now read 3 books by Alex Flinn (Beastly, A Kiss In Time, and Bewitching) and I’ve enjoyed all of them. This newest one is a retelling of Snow White and I’m really excited to start reading my digital arc soon. I don’t know about you guys, but I really love retellings, especially when they involve the fairy tales we all grew up with.

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Alex Flinn’s modern and mysterious retelling of Snow White, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and true love doesn’t necessarily mean Prince Charming.
Celine’s life is the stuff fairy tales are made of. She’s beautiful, talented, and brave. Unfortunately, her tale comes complete with a wicked stepmother! When Violet steps into Celine’s life, everything changes and weird things begin to happen to her—bizarre accidents, strange illnesses, and rabid animal attacks. Celine doesn’t feel safe anywhere. It’s almost as if some hateful witch is out to get her.
And there is. Violet has been waiting all her life to have Celine’s father to herself. Getting rid of his gorgeous daughter is child’s play for a witch as powerful as she is. Happy-ever-after isn’t enough for Violet. She wants to be the fairest of them all, and Celine is in the way . . . but not for long.
Forced to take refuge with her friend Goose and his family, Celine gives up everything she loves and goes deep undercover. But will it be enough to fool Violet, or will Celine’s fate be decided by a reflection in a magic mirror? And where do you find Prince Charming in Miami anyway?
Mirrored is a modern retelling of Snow White—told from the points of view of Violet, Celine, and Goose—with all the magic and mystery readers will love.
