Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Tris and Izzie
by Mette Ivie Harrison

release date: October 11, 2011 from EgmontUSA

UNOFFICAL description, subject to alteration:

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.


My thoughts: I have a feeling we're going to be seeing this one everywhere on this weeks WoW since the cover was just recently revealed, but I can't get this one out of my head. A modern retelling of Tristan and Isolde?? So excited about that. And that cover? I need a huge poster of it on my wall, its so pretty. Drool, drool, drool.
