This week, I'm waiting on...
by Alex Flinn

Genres: Young Adult; Fairy-tale Retellings
Mirror, mirror in my hand…
Beauty is the key to everything. At least, that’s how it seems to Violet—ugly, bullied, and lonely. To be beautiful, in her eyes, is to have power and love. And when Kendra, the witch, teaches Violet how to use magic, she may finally get what she wants.
For Celine, beautiful since birth, her looks have been a hindrance. She discovers that beauty is also a threat—especially to her stepmother, Violet, who doesn’t want anyone sharing the attention she worked so hard to get and who will do anything to be the fairest of them all.
But beauty isn’t only skin deep and love isn’t based on looks alone. And though Violet and Celine may seem to be completely opposite, their lives are almost…MIRRORED.

You know how I love retellings, so naturally this has become one of my need-to-reads this year. I love the cover, too! When I came across Mirrored, I didn’t realised Alex Flinn had written a few other retellings as well… (Yep, it seems like I’ve been under a retelling rock!) I’m dying to know, has anyone read any of her other books?? Which one should I start with? There’s lots of time between now and September, so I’d like to try one before then. I can never have too many retellings on my TBR list, so adding a few more won’t hurt!
