Waiting on Wednesday: Cold Spell by Jackson Pierce

This Wow (Waiting on Wednesday) is all about fairy tale retellings. I am waiting on Cold Spell by Jackson Pierce.

 Kai and Ginny grew up together–best friends since they could toddle around their building’s rooftop rose garden. Now they’re seventeen, and their relationship has developed into something sweeter, complete with stolen kisses and plans to someday run away together.But one night, Kai disappears with a mysterious stranger named Mora–a beautiful girl with a dark past and a heart of ice. Refusing to be cast aside, Ginny goes after them and is thrust into a world she never imagined, one filled with monsters and thieves and the idea that love is not enough. If Ginny and Kai survive the journey, will she still be the girl he loved–and moreover, will she still be the girl who loved him?

Jackson Pearce, author of the acclaimed SISTERS RED and FATHOMLESS, has returned with a unique vision of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen,” one about power and redemption, failure and hope, and the true meaning of strength (GoodReads).

I really liked Lili St. Crow's Nameless as well aKill Me Softly by Sarah Cross. While two very different takes on fairy tales, I enjoy imaginative retellings. And I like Grimm on TV. AND I have been wanting to read something by Jackson Pierce for a while. This book and I should get along just fine.


  1. I have yet to read a Jackson Pearce book but Cold Spell makes me want to break that spell, see what I did there.
    Will definitely be adding Cold Spell to by lonnnnng tbr pile!
