Amber's Waiting on:

Title: The Dark Decent of Elizabeth Frankenstein
Author: Kiersten White
Genre: Retelling
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publication Date: September 25th 2018

Elizabeth Lavenza hasn't had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her "caregiver," and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything--except a friend. Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable--and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable. But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth's survival depends on managing Victor's dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.

I was able to snag a copy of this book from Penguin at BookExpo and I am so excited. I been eyeing it for a while now so I was super excited when they announced their drop for it. That summary though. I can't wait until I finally can read this!!

  1. Great pick! I really want to check this one out. I loved Frankenstein in high school and it was probably one of my favorite books that were actually required.
