There are times when I really hate living in England. And not just when it rains all summer, either. (Although then too).
The US gets Malinda Lo’s Ash - a lesbian retelling of Cinderella - in less than a month. Here in the UK we’ll be waiting until March 2010. March! 2010!
There is so much about this book that was already making me desperate to read it. Mostly the promised romance. And the buzz it's been generating. And the fairytaleness.
Then today I encountered the first chapter at Malinda Lo’s blog and it is beautiful. I’ll either be importing a copy this September, or moving to America.
If you haven't read Chapter One yet, visit Malinda Lo's blog here. But don't blame me if it makes you realise you just can't wait either.
