Waiting on Wednesday: Mechanica - Betsy Cornwell

Share it Please

I'm so looking forward to this one! I'm a sucker for fairytale retellings! 
This book has a great legacy to live up to with "Cinder" being one of the most recent and super successful Cinderella retellings that I can think of at the top of my head. 

I like the steampunk elements that this one seems to have and I'm sure it'll be equally as awesome as "Cinder".

Release Date: August 4th 2015
Pages: 304
Publisher: Clarion Books
Genre: YA / Retellings

"Nicolette’s awful stepsisters call her “Mechanica” to demean her, but the nickname fits: she learned to be an inventor at her mother’s knee. Her mom is gone now, though, and the Steps have turned her into a servant in her own home. 

But on her sixteenth birthday, Nicolette discovers a secret workshop in the cellar and begins to dare to imagine a new life for herself. Could the mysterious books and tools hidden there—and the mechanical menagerie, led by a tiny metal horse named Jules—be the key to escaping her dreary existence? With a technological exposition and royal ball on the horizon, the timing might just be perfect for Nicolette to earn her freedom at last."

What are You Waiting On?

  2. I'll definitely get it, probably even before I read Cinder. Not so much a series person I guess. Yeah, the cover is just stunning!

  3. This sounds like the Cinderella I always wanted to read !

  4. I hope it turns out to be exactly that!
