Dying to Read (93)- SPINNING STARLIGHT by R.C. Lewis


Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

I freaking loved R.C. Lewis's retelling of Snow White in STITCHING SNOW and I can't wait to read her retelling of The Wild Swans, SPINNING STARLIGHT! And this companion now has a cover and a blurb so I just had to make this my WoW this week!

Title: SPINNING STARLIGHT 
Author: R.C. Lewis
Release Date: October 6, 2015
Hardcover: 336 pages
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble 
Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family in the galaxy, it's hard to escape it. So when a group of men show up at her house uninvited, she assumes it's just the usual media-grubs. That is, until shots are fired.

Liddi escapes, only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor implants a device in Liddi's vocal cords to monitor her speech, their lives are in her hands: One word and her brothers are dead.


Desperate to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help her bring her eight brothers home-a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength and wit to convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the planets deeply intertwined with her brothers' survival, just how much is Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back?


Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans strings the heart of the classic with a stunning, imaginative world as a star-crossed family fights for survival in this companion to Stitching Snow.



So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?
