"It isn't easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past - and hers?"

I'm intrigued by this since I loved The Frog Prince by the Grimm Brothers when I was a little girl. Of course that was a short story and there have been many different versions since then. I like how as a frog they are friends and she loves him but when he turns back into a Prince she is not interested in him. Sounds like a fun story.

  1. I saw this one for the first time last week and am still as intrigued about it, if not much more. THe Frog Prince! Retelling! WANT!!!

  2. I love fairy tale retellings... This novel seems fantastic and is definitely going on my TBR list. While The Frog Prince (the one that I read, anyway) always made me feel as if the princess was narcissistic, this seems to be a complete opposite and I'm interested in this.

    Following your blog from now on :)

    If you'd like to check out my WoW, here is the link:

    1. The Princess was spoiled and the king made her keep her promise to the frog. In the Grimm one

  3. I LOVE fairytales <3 I like that she choose The frog prince, since that's not a very popular story like snow white. I always like to read retellings of those more unknown fairytales :)

    This one is going to be mine the day it comes out.


  4. AAAh, Such a gorgeous cover, I am reading Kill Me Softly right now which is a fairy tale type book and I am enjoying it

  5. I haven't heard this before, but from the synopsis alone, I'm hooked! I'm definitely adding this to the TBR list. I just love, love, love fairytale retellings. Thanks for sharing!

    Followed you :).
