Waiting on Wednesday #1: The Princess Will Save You by Sarah Henning

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating! I’ve never actually done a WoW post before, so I’m super excited to be posting my first one!

The book I’ll be sharing with you today is one that I’m DYING to read. Thankfully, I’ve been generously provided with an eARC of it, so I can dive into it really soon! This book is *drumroll*…3b6fc50f04874b6a17f39386fdc73b33 (6)

The Princess Will Save You is a YA fantasy adventure inspired by The Princess Bride, in which a princess must rescue her stable boy true love, from the acclaimed author of Sea Witch, Sarah Henning.

When a princess’s commoner true love is kidnapped to coerce her into a political marriage, she doesn’t give in―she goes to rescue him.

When her warrior father, King Sendoa, mysteriously dies, Princess Amarande of Ardenia is given what would hardly be considered a choice: Marry a stranger at sixteen or lose control of her family’s crown.

But Amarande was raised to be a warriornot a sacrifice.

In an attempt to force her choice, a neighboring kingdom kidnaps her true love, stable boy Luca. With her kingdom on the brink of civil war and no one to trust, she’ll need all her skill to save him, her future, and her kingdom.

  • First of all: THE COVER. Charlie Bowater seriously deserves a medal for all of the gorgeous covers she’s designed. I think this might be my favorite one yet!
  • We’re finally getting a young adult Princess Bride retelling! Where Buttercup saves Westley! Whatttttt?!
  • I really like fantasy books with romantic subplots, but I don’t usually like them as much when the two main characters are already in love (I like to see the build-up and development of the relationship)… so we’ll see about this one.
  • I think the only reason why I haven’t picked my ARC up yet is because I have such high expectations! I don’t wait to be disappointed!

    I am crazy excited to read this book; I just have to find it somewhere. I’m interested to see how she develops Buttercup’s character, since she’s intentionally a dumb damsel in distress in the original. The satirical aspects of the first book— and the way it makes fun of the damsel-in-distress trope— are some of the things I like best about it, so I wonder how much I’ll like this one. I hope you like it!
