Wish List Wednesday (60)

The Princess Curse by Merrie Haskell, September 6, 2011. Published by HarperCollins.
Twelve princesses suffer from a puzzling—and downright silly—curse. Ridiculous though the curse may be, whoever breaks it will win a handsome reward.

Sharp-witted Reveka, an herbalist’s apprentice, has little use for princesses, with their snooty attitudes and impractical clothing. She does, however, have use for the reward money that could buy her a position as a master herbalist.

But curses don’t like to be broken, and Reveka’s efforts lead her to deeper mysteries. As she struggles to understand the curse, she meets a shadowy stranger (as charming as he is unsettling) and discovers a blighted land in desperate need of healing. Soon the irreverent apprentice is faced with a daunting choice—will she break the curse at the peril of her own soul?
Why: How could one possibly go wrong with a book about cursed princesses. I think it sounds both cute and like it could be one of those books that just surprises you.

We Were There 1 by Yuki Obata, 2008 (originally published in 2002). Published by Viz Media (Shojo Beat).
Nanami Takahashi falls for Motoharu Yano, the most popular, carefree boy in class. For Nanami, it's first love, but Yano is still grieving the death of his girlfriend who died the year before.
Nanami starts high school with high hopes of making lots of friends. She develops a crush on the enigmatic Yano, but he may have too many secrets for her to handle.
Why: Okay, so I have read volumes 3 and 6 of We Were There and would like nothing better than to start this series from the beginning. You will so understand why if you read my review of volume 6 (found HERE).
