Cover Crush: The Bone Spindle by Leslie Vedder
The Bone Spindle by Leslie Vedder has a gorgeous illustrated cover that gives all the Tomb Raider/Indiana Jones vibes! This gender-bent retelling of Sleeping Beauty where Fi, a treasure hunter, accidentally pricks themselves on a bone spindle which curses them and now they must find the long lost sleeping Prince and wake him up.
Yes, this sounds amazing as I am a huge fan of these historical types of retellings mash-up of fairytales! The Bone Spindle is releasing on January 11th so be sure to put that on your TBR or winter wishlists!
Many thanks to Penguin Teen for sending me an advance copy! Cover artist is Fernanda Suarez.

Sleeping Beauty meets Indiana Jones in this thrilling fairytale retelling for fans of Sorcery of Thorns and All the Stars and Teeth.
Fi is a bookish treasure hunter with a knack for ruins and riddles, who definitely doesn't believe in true love.
Shane is a tough-as-dirt girl warrior from the north who likes cracking skulls, pretty girls, and doing things her own way.
Briar Rose is a prince under a sleeping curse, who's been waiting a hundred years for the kiss that will wake him.
Cursed princes are nothing but ancient history to Fi--until she pricks her finger on a bone spindle while exploring a long-lost ruin. Now she's stuck with the spirit of Briar Rose until she and Shane can break the century-old curse on his kingdom.
Dark magic, Witch Hunters, and bad exes all stand in her way--not to mention a mysterious witch who might wind up stealing Shane's heart, along with whatever else she's after. But nothing scares Fi more than the possibility of falling in love with Briar Rose.
Set in a lush world inspired by beloved fairytales, The Bone Spindle is a fast-paced young adult fantasy full of adventure, romance, found family, and snark.
