Waiting on Wednesday -5

Ash by Malinda Lo

Release Date: September 1, 2009


Cinderella retold

In the wake of her father's death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, rereading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she believes that her wish may be granted.

The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King's Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash's capacity for love-and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.

Entrancing, empowering, and romantic, Ash is about the connection between life and love, and solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepest grief.

I'm really looking forward to this one!! Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by: Breaking The Spine.


  1. This one looks amazing. I love redone fairy tales.

  2. Me too, love retold fairy tales.
    I just realized the cover isn't a flower, it's a girl. Gorgeous book! Ash sounds really good, kinda darker I think than the traditional Cinderella, yeah?

  3. I love that cover!!! ;D

  4. I want to read this, I love the cover!
