Why I'm Waiting...
First, I have never, ever, in my entire life heard of a Nutcracker retelling, so to say this is awesome is a HUGE understatement. Ever since I first watched Barbie in The Nutcracker when I was little, I have been in love with the story of a young girl and a wooden prince, so of course I'm excited for the book version which can only be better! I'm hoping I get to read this book the day it comes out, but I might end up saving it until it starts snowing just so I can really get into the mood (yes, that is exactly how book-obsessed I am).
