Waiting on Wednesday #124

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I Can't wait for:

The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly
The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly 

When seventeen-year-old Minnow stumbles out of the woods one winter morning, she is haunted and handless and covered in someone else’s blood. She has just escaped the strict religious commune run by a cruel man named the Prophet. In exchange for freedom, she leaves behind her family, her home, and Jude--an outsider boy who changed everything. 

But the real world isn't the sanctuary Minnow imagined. Soon, she gets arrested and placed in juvenile detention. Now, Minnow is being questioned by an FBI psychiatrist about the night she escaped, the same night the Prophet was burned to death in his own home—a murder Minnow may be responsible for.

A modern retelling of the Grimm fairy tale, "The Handless Maiden," in which the Devil orders a girl's hands cut off, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly is the story of a girl growing out of the wreckage of corrupted faith.

Just sounds creeps, intense, and its a fairtytale retelling. Granted I am not familiar with this fairytale but I shall be before reading this book. 


  1. I'm not familiar with this fairytale either, but this book sounds really creepy and scary. Now I'm wondering how she functions without hands? Thanks for sharing.

  2. Creepy indeed. At first when I started to read the blurb, it reminded me of Gated by Amy Christine Parker, but then I realized that this was a lot different. I'm curious about Minnow's character and if she really killed the Prophet. I've never read that fairytale, but it seems interesting.

    Happy Wednesday!
