Waiting on Wednesday #39

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that highlights upcoming releases we're anticipating.

Author: Brianna Shrum
Series: None
Genre: YA, Retelling, Fantasy, Adventure
Release Date: September 22, 2015
Summary From Goodreads: 
James Hook is a child who only wants to grow up.
When he meets Peter Pan, a boy who loves to pretend and is intent on never becoming a man, James decides he could try being a child—at least briefly. James joins Peter Pan on a holiday to Neverland, a place of adventure created by children’s dreams, but Neverland is not for the faint of heart. Soon James finds himself longing for home, determined that he is destined to be a man. But Peter refuses to take him back, leaving James trapped in a world just beyond the one he loves. A world where children are to never grow up.
But grow up he does. 
And thus begins the epic adventure of a Lost Boy and a Pirate.
This story isn’t about Peter Pan; it’s about the boy whose life he stole. It’s about a man in a world that hates men. It’s about the feared Captain James Hook and his passionate quest to kill the Pan, an impossible feat in a magical land where everyone loves Peter Pan.
Except one.

Why I'm Waiting:
It's not secret that I absolutely love fantasy and retellings, so of course I'm excited for Never Never! I don't think I've read any Peter Pan retellings either. I also love the cover design. It totally has a Peter Pan feel to it with the ship in the background and the title font with the feather.

I’m a lover of words. Sometimes weird ones. Sometimes bloody ones. Sometimes kissy ones. I try not to discriminate. Also, all things nerdy. Odds are, if they talk about it on The Big Bang Theory, I like it. Star Wars, superheroes, gaming, you name it. Much to the dismay of my much cooler younger sisters.
I live in fantabulous Colorado with my hubs and two boys, all of whom are pretty awesome.(It's pretty testosteroney around here. SO. MANY. BOY.)
Sometimes, I blog about writerly things. I'm an author of YA fiction, and I LOVE what I do.


  1. This sounds SO GOOD! Peter Pan retellings go right onto my wish list, especially if they feature Hook! Great pick!
