"Waiting On" Wednesday (5)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly chance for bloggers to share books we can't wait to get our hands on.  
It's hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine. 

Available in Paperback October 25:

The Fourth Book of Bayern

How do I love Shannon Hale? Let me count the ways! 

I love, love, love, love  The Goose Girl ! While the books may be marketed for ages 12 and up, you need to be a bit older to really appreciate the beauty with which Shannon Hale crafts her stories.  She has created modern fairy tales with this series.  I haven't read beyond The Goose Girl yet -- not because it wasn't great, but because it was.  I am afraid to gobble it all up too quickly, because I don't want it to be over.  That said, once Forest Born is released in paperback, my set will be complete.  And I might allow myself to delve into Enna Burning

I mean, come on....could these covers be any more beautiful??

That's what I'm waiting on! Now how 'bout you?
