WoW #178 – Red Hood

Posted February 12, 2020 by Lillian in Features / 2 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m anxiously waiting on Elana K. Arnold‘s Red Hood. I love fairy-tale retellings. This one in particular is Red Riding Hood. After reading the blurb, I’m getting The Grace Year vibes. Anyone else? Regardless, it promises to be a thrilling read.

WoW #178 – Red HoodRed Hood by Elana K. Arnold
Published by Balzer + Bray on 2020-02-25
Length: 368 pages

You are alone in the woods, seen only by the unblinking yellow moon. Your hands are empty. You are nearly naked.

And the wolf is angry.

Since her grandmother became her caretaker when she was four years old, Bisou Martel has lived a quiet life in a little house in Seattle. She’s kept mostly to herself. She’s been good. But then comes the night of homecoming, when she finds herself running for her life over roots and between trees, a fury of claws and teeth behind her. A wolf attacks. Bisou fights back. A new moon rises. And with it, questions. About the blood in Bisou’s past and on her hands as she stumbles home. About broken boys and vicious wolves. About girls lost in the woods—frightened, but not alone.
