Waiting on Wednesday ~ A gold retelling!

Posted June 2, 2021 by Michelle in Waiting On Wednesday / 6 Comments

is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

Gold Spun
by Brandie June
320 pages
Expected publication: June 8th 2021 by CamCat Books


If Nor can’t spin gold, she can always spin lies.

When seventeen-year-old Nor rescues a captured faerie in the woods, he gifts her with a magical golden thread she can use to summon him for a favor. Instead, Nor uses it for a con—to convince villagers to buy straw that can be transformed into gold. Her trick works a little too well, attracting the suspicion of Prince Casper, who hates nobody more than a liar. Intent on punishing Nor, he demands that she spin a room of straw into gold and as her reward, he will marry her. Should she refuse or fail, the consequences will be dire.

I am a sucker for a stunning cover! I can just imagine what this looks like in hardcover. I love the idea of this story, a rumplestiltskin  retelling. I am also a sucker for a retelling…so excited for this one!
