Waiting On Wednesday: Beauty by Nancy Ohlin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.

Our WoW for this week is…

Looks to kill for…

Ana is nothing like her glamorous mother, Queen Veda, whose hair is black as ravens and whose lips are red as roses. Alas, Queen Veda loathes anyone whose beauty dares to rival her own—including her daughter.

And despite Ana’s attempts to be plain to earn her mother’s affection,
she’s sent away to the kingdom’s exclusive boarding school.

At the Academy, Ana is devastated when her only friend abandons her for the popular girls. Isolated and alone, Ana resolves to look like a true princess to earn the acceptance she desires.

But when she uncovers the dangerous secret that makes all of the girls at the Academy so gorgeous, just how far will Ana go to fit in?

  3. I’ve seen this around somewhere before and thought it was strangely interesting, but I wasn’t entirely captivated. I hope you enjoy, though. Happy reading.

  4. Wow, how come I never heard of this one before? This is great, considering anything fairytale-related draws me in. Great pick! :D
