IMM 33

ARC:

 Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross

+April 10th, 2012

+Thank you EgmontUSA!


Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined. In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again. But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own . . . brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns

Oooo interesting haul! Kill Me Softly looks great- loving the cover! The covers of those classics are gorgeous too! I love them all- The Scarlet Letter is very interesting. I recently read a dystopian retelling called 'When She Woke' by Hillary Jordan so if you like this you might want to check that one out too!

Nice! You have classic books here. I recalled reading The Scarlet Letter for my humanities class before and the paper I had to write about it. And of course The Secret Garden and Peter Pan = Lovelovelove. Enjoy those fascinating reads. Sure to be enriching.
