Waiting on Wednesday: Two and Twenty Dark Tales

Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose RhymesIn this anthology, 20 authors explore the dark and hidden meanings behind some of the most beloved Mother Goose nursery rhymes through short story retellings. The dark twists on classic tales range from exploring whether Jack truly fell or if Jill pushed him instead to why Humpty Dumpty, fragile and alone, sat atop so high of a wall. The authors include Nina Berry, Sarwat Chadda, Leigh Fallon, Gretchen McNeil, and Suzanne Young

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

This book sounds amazing. I'm a huge fan of retellings and I love learning about all the dark and creepy meanings in rhymes and kids songs so this is the perfect book for me. I can't wait to get my hands on this. Plus, this cover is gorgeous and creepy all rolled into one!

Let me know what you guys are waiting for!
