Waiting on Wednesday: The Treachery of Beautiful Things



The Treachery of Beautiful Things
Author: Ruth Frances Long
Publisher: Dial Books
Release Date: August 16, 2012

A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction

The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.

I am majorly excited for this one, Just look at that cover! And since reading The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa, I have been trying to read more fey books, at first I hated the entire sub-genre and avoided them like the plague, I'm now slowly coming around. This looks like something that is just up my alley and from a debut author, what more could I ask for?! 

So what are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  2. This is also on my TBR list! It looks like it will be great and that cover is to die for! I can’t wait to read this one! If you like fey books, have you ever read Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely? I loved that book and thought it was a very well written faery book!
    Thanks for sharing your pick!

  7. I'm not too big on faerie books either but some of them have really pretty covers and intriguing premises so I've got them on my wishlist. I'll wait for the reviews to come in though before deciding whether they're worth buying.
