Waiting On Wednesday: Enchanted by Alethea Kontis

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

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: May 8, 2012
Pages: 320

Summary: It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true. When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises. The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?

My Thoughts: First of all, I love the name Sunday for a character, it's very unique. Also, I flippin' cannot get enough of fairy tale stories. I've been a fan ever since I was young, so it stuck with me into adulthood. All in all, this one sounds like a great story I'd be enchanted by. I can't wait for it, that lovely cover would look great on our shelves! :)

I love the detailing around the title but I don't really like the girl on the cover. Anyway, the summary sounds pretty interesting, I'm not going to lie. It's Princess and the Frog all over again. I loved that movie. But I haven't really read fairy tale stories, so this would be a change. Great WOW
