Waiting on Wednesday: Tris and Izzie


This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
Pub. Date: October 11, 2011


Goodreads says, "A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzy", is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until-- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.  Light, contemporary romantic fantasy for teens."


*I adore the story of Tristan and Isolde, so my interest was definitely peaked by this modern retelling. I think it sounds fun and hopefully will lend some attention to the original story.  And I can't deny how fabulous and eye catching this cover is?! Incredible!

  8. I am sooooo excited about this one too! I fell in love with Tristan & Isolde freshman year of college - I was taking "Love, Honour & Chivalry" and lost my heart ... Totally excited about A] a new story and B] it being a contemporary revision!

    Plus, that cover is stunning. :o)
