From Goodreads:
A modern retelling of the German legend “Tristan and Isolde”, “Tris and Izzie”, is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until– she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school.

Light, contemporary romantic fantasy for teens.

Why I’m Excited:
I have never read the German legend of Tristan and Isolde but it sounds fascinating! This sounds like a great romance!

    The cover is so amazingly gorgeous! I really can't wait for this one either!

  3. DJ's Life in Fiction says:

    Not only is the cover amazing, but it sounds like a great read too. At first I thought it was going to be a "dark", dramatic story, but it sounds more like a funny, light-hearted one. Can't wait to see what you think of it!

  7. Tristan and Isolde is not a very well-known fairy tale (I myself had never heard of it until I saw a children's cartoon version listed on Netflix), so I'm glad that it's being re-told!
