Waiting on Wednesday: A World Without Princes

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani which is due to be released on April 15th

In the epic sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel, The School for Good and Evil, Sophie and Agatha are home, living out their Ever After. But life isn’t quite the fairy tale they expected.

When Agatha secretly wishes she’d chosen a different happy ending, she reopens the gates to the School for Good and Evil. But the world she and Sophie once knew has changed.

Witches and princesses, warlocks and princes are no longer enemies. New bonds are forming; old bonds are being shattered. But underneath this uneasy arrangement, a war is brewing and a dangerous enemy rises. As Agatha and Sophie battle to restore peace, an unexpected threat could destroy everything, and everyone, they love—and this time, it comes from within.

I LOVED School for Good and Evil and I can't wait to jump into that world again.  I mean, just look at that cover.  How can you NOT pick it up?  I am seriously hoping for a lot more villain action this time, especially if that involves Sophie's roomates: the three unforgettable witches.  I also have high hopes that the title means the princes are taking a backseat and the girls/women are going to be the real heros in this fairy tale.

I am all in for some good women/girl kick-butt characters :) The cover is awesome! You're right...I probably would pick it up from just that.
