Waiting on Wednesday: Wendy Darling

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "can't-wait-to-read" is:


title: wendy darling volume one: stars
author: colleen oaks
book birthday: october 13, 2015

blurb from goodreads:
From the Best-Selling Author of Queen of Hearts comes a dark and mesmerizing twist on the beloved Children's Classic, Peter Pan.

Wendy Darling has a perfectly agreeable life with her parents and brothers in wealthy London, as well as a budding romance with Booth, the neighborhood bookseller’s son. But while their parents are at a ball, the charmingly beautiful Peter Pan comes to the Darling children’s nursery and—dazzled by this flying boy with god-like powers—they follow him out of the window and straight on to morning, to Neverland, a intoxicating island of feral freedom.

As time passes in Neverland, Wendy realizes that this Lost Boy’s paradise of turquoise seas, mermaids, and pirates holds terrible secrets rooted in blood and greed. As Peter’s grasp on her heart tightens, she struggles to remember where she came from—and begins to suspect that this island of dreams, and the boy who desires her—have the potential to transform into an everlasting nightmare.


ok first can i just say i absolutely adore the cover. i want this one based on that alone ^_^ another thing... what's up with all the peter pan retellings? i mean i can't wait to see finding neverland on broadway, i have seen peter and the starcatchers on broadway (which i highly recommend) and i have read the book as well. tiger lily was a complete disaster and peter pan in scarlet (which is the official sequel to peter pan) was okay . Also there is a movie coming out later this year called pan in which hugh jackman is playing blackbead.

what do you guys think about this whole peter pan craze? 
what is your waiting on wednesday this week?
