Today we are partnering with the lovely people at Disney-Hyperion to bring you a fabulous giveaway! E.K. Johnston is an incredibly talented author and I am SO excited to read Spindle. I enjoyed A Thousand Nights and CRIED while reading The Garden of Three Hundred Flowers (a short b/w A Thousand Nights and Spindle, more info will be below) so I am sure Spindle will be even better. Exit, Pursued by a Bear (a retelling of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale) was also one of my favorite books of the year so basically, I just need all of Johnston’s books in my life :’)
About the Book
Spindle by E.K. Johnston
Series: A Thousand Nights #2
Published by Disney Hyperion on December 6th, 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Retellings, YA
Buy on Amazon
The world is made safe by a woman...but it is a very big world.
It has been generations since the Storyteller Queen drove the demon out of her husband and saved her country from fire and blood. Her family has prospered beyond the borders of their village, and two new kingdoms have sprouted on either side of the mountains where the demons are kept prisoner by bright iron, and by the creatures the Storyteller Queen made to keep them contained.
But the prison is crumbling. Through years of careful manipulation, a demon has regained her power. She has made one kingdom strong and brought the other to its knees, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. When a princess is born, the demon is ready with the final blow: a curse that will cost the princess her very soul, or force her to destroy her own people to save her life.
The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled--and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.
About the Author
E.K. Johnston had several jobs and one vocation before she became a published writer. If she’s learned anything, it’s that things turn out weird sometimes, and there’s not a lot you can do about it. Well, that and how to muscle through awkward fanfic because it’s about a pairing she likes.

Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity! I didn’t even realize it was being released tomorrow!
This sounds truly promising! Such a shame that this isn’t open to INTL.
I love retellings. Some of my favorites are by Marissa Meyer. Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

I am a big fan of retellings, and this one sounds really good!
Just read Heartless by Marissa Meyer and loved it!!!
I am excited about this book! I don’t have any specific retellings to recommend.
I def would recommend the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer! 😀 Definitely want to read this!
I really need to read this series!! I have seen it everywhere and heard great things about this retelling. After devouring the Lunar Chronicles, I can’t wait to pick up more retellings.
I love retellings and I’ve seen several people say that this is different from any other retelling of 1,001 Nights. The Once Upon a Time series is really good.
