"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray
Summary from GoodReads:
Falling for Hamlet retells the familiar Shakespearean tragedy from the point of view of a feisty, empowered Ophelia, who is neither suicidal nor anybody’s pushover. In a glittering world of celebrities, paparazzi, and reality TV, Ophelia navigates the minefield of teen life in a royal family gone crazy.
Why am I looking forward to Falling for Hamlet? Honestly, it sounds interesting and well, I'm not exactly known for my ability to read Shakespearean plays in their original form--which means that I find this to be a lovely alternative (although I'm not expecting it to align perfectly with the original Hamlet). Okay, okay, so I'm also in love with the cover--and the little snippet of Falling for Hamlet that I read out of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers catalog.
Falling for Hamlet comes out on July 5, 2011 and is published by Poppy--a part of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday? :D
