Waiting on Wednesday: Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu


Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
Release date: September 27, 2011

A stunning modern-day fairy tale from acclaimed author Anne Ursu

Once upon a time, Hazel and Jack were best friends. But that was before he stopped talking to her and disappeared into a forest with a mysterious woman made of ice. Now it's up to Hazel to go in after him. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," Breadcrumbs is a story of the struggle to hold on, and the things we leave behind.


I need to be honest and just put this out there: I am not familiar with the fairy tale "The Snow Queen." However, I have a book of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales and have been meaning to read it, so it's time to get on that. I love fairy tales and retellings, and Breadcrumbs one has an especially gorgeous cover. Definitely one I plan to pick up.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. The cover of this one is gorgeous! I haven't read The Snow Queen either, but I'm definitely intrigued by this book's description nonetheless. Great pick!

  2. Yes, yes, preorder it now!! Seriously, it was really, really good. Potentially one of my favorite MG reads in a long time.
