This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Title: Kill Me Softly
Author: Sarah Cross
Release Date: April 10th 2012

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.

I discovered this book through the inimitable Mimi Valentine and have been pining for it ever since! Still really into the white rose/blood motif and always into fairy tales. This book promises secrets! love! curses! I can never resist a fairy tale based book. What book are you waiting on?

  8. Awwwwwwwwwwwww! <3 Thanks so much for mentioning me, Elena — I almost grinned so wide that my mom thought I won the lottery! x) I love it when I can make your TBR pile grow like crazy (as far as jobs go, it's a fun one to have), and I really love this cover too! It fits the whole fairytale-ish synopsis perfectly. And it kind of makes me remember the rose from Beauty and the Beast (which is my fave fairytale)! :D
