Waiting on Wednesday Twentieth Edition
Hello, readers and followers! Happy (almost) Wednesday. Welcome.
It’s again been a while since Finding Wonderland joined this fun meme. But a new week and a new Wednesday brings with it yet more bookish talk. Not that any of minds this, right?
Today’s feature is all about the books we’re “Waiting On” with Can’t Wait Wednesday. A meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in.
Organized by the lovely Tressa of Wishful Endings, here’s another edition of Can’t Wait Wednesday.
Today we feature an upcoming historical novel that is, admittedly, a long way off. But the recent excitement over its cover reveal in combination with the infectious social media persona of its author made me all the more excited to read this novel. It’s a re-telling written by the talented Nadine Brandes. I’ll admit I haven’t read any of Nadine’s books (*shame on me, I know*) let alone her new fantasy release but I know she’s talented. Not only does she have an epic bookstagram account, but she also has a Youtube channel and of course, she writes. Talk about the trifecta of amazing talent.
To further excite me about her upcoming release, Nadine goes and writes about a “Rissi-catnip” topic which is a re-telling of – wait for it – Anastasia!
*cue the dancing bears*
Now, I realize this won’t be like the animated musical, but just knowing this book is going to be a re-telling of this Russian “fairy tale” is giving me all the nostalgic feels. Plus, this book is bound to be all about the romantic – and historical, feels perfect for those of us who enjoy historical drama like Victoria.

The history books say I died.
They don’t know the half of it.
Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them . . . and he’s hunted Romanov before.
Nastya’s only chances of survival are to either release the spell, and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya’s never dabbled in magic before, but it doesn’t frighten her as much as her growing attraction for Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her . . .
That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad . . . and he’s on the other. – Goodreads
