Can’t-Wait​ Wednesday: The Shadow in the Glass by J.J.A. Harwood

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.

Once upon a time Ella had wished for more than her life as a lowly maid.

Now forced to work hard under the unforgiving, lecherous gaze of the man she once called stepfather, Ella’s only refuge is in the books she reads by candlelight, secreted away in the library she isn’t permitted to enter.

One night, among her beloved books of far-off lands, Ella’s wishes are answered. At the stroke of midnight, a fairy godmother makes her an offer that will change her life: seven wishes, hers to make as she pleases. But each wish comes at a price and Ella must to decide whether it’s one she’s willing to pay it.

Why I Can’t Wait:

This is a Cinderella retelling, described as a dark fairytale, which sounds so good. Early reviews seem to love it and it’s also the Goldsboro GSFF choice for next month.

Release Date: 18 March 2021
