~Can't Wait Wednesday: A Curse So Dark and Lonely~

                Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Wishful Endings.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Out:  1/29/19

From Goodreads:
                Fall in love, break the curse.

                It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall.  Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him.  But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction.  That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope. 

                Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy.  With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive.  But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

                Break the curs, save the kingdom.

                A prince?  A monster?  A curse?  Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe.  But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake.  And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back.  But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall…and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

Why I’m Waiting:
                 I saw this on another CWW recently and just knew I wanted to read it.  I didn’t even realize it was a Beauty and the Beast retelling until later but the idea is fascinating.  I love books where someone is taken from one world and put in another it just makes me wish I could do that :)

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your CWW as well so I can check it out.


  1. I am excited for this one as well.

  2. This one sounds so good! I picked it up at BookExpo this year and this has reminded me that I should read it.

    Thanks for sharing,
