Wishlist Wednesday #1 - Tiger Lily


This is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper!  This is my first time participating and I'm very excited!  :D




Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair. . . . 

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell. Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter. With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Peaches comes a magical and bewitching story of the romance between a fearless heroine and the boy who wouldn't grow up.

When I read this synopsis, every single time, I think I am going to burst into tears.  Peter Pan does that to me.  Anything related to Peter Pan does that to me.  Do you know how beautiful this story sounds?  How heartbreaking?!  Peter Pan is not about Happy Endings.  I have a feeling this is going to be a Forever Favorite, and that I'm going to be a complete disaster when I read it.
The cover is absolutely perfect.  I love the colors and the font and everything.

  2. SIERRA. I was ecstatic and excited and hyperactively unable to wait for this book before (because it's PETER PAN! And what girl doesn't love PETER PAN?), but your little paragraph just made me even more anxious to get my hands on it! You're so right about Peter Pan not being about happy endings, but I guess that's one thing you just have to love about it! <3 :')

    Absolutely AMAZING pick for your WOW this week, Sierra! We must go through every Peter Pan related book, movie, and song before the release of this book so we can be fully prepared for its awesomeness. I'm so excited!! x)

  6. EEEEEEEKK!!!  I'm so glad we are both Peter Pan fanatics!  I seriously read/watch/listen to anything related to Peter Pan.  (In fact, tonight I'm going to the musical Peter Pan put on by the fabulous Lori Grimes of my sister's school.)  And I know, right?  Peter Pan defies all other great literature because it is still incredibly amazing without having a happy ending.  Let's gear up for this amazing read together, shall we? :D
