Waiting on Wednesday: Mechanica - Betsy Cornwell




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

Synopsis:
"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."
