Waiting on Wednesday - Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige





Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  This week I've chosen a book that I first learned about through other blogs' WOW posts.  And then about a week ago I learned that I might get to be a moderator at a discussion with this author, along with three other authors, and now I'm even more eager to read this book.  Here is the blurb from Goodreads.com:  


I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero.
But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still the yellow brick road, though—but even that's crumbling.

What happened?
Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I'm the other girl from Kansas.
I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.
I've been trained to fight.
And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman's heart.
Steal the Scarecrow's brain.
Take the Lion's courage.
Then and only then—Dorothy must die!


Sounds pretty interesting to me!  Especially if like me, you grew up watching The Wizard of Oz every spring when they broadcast it on network tv.

  9. Ahh I've seen this book around before - it looks sososo good! I've even more desperate to read it now that you've brought it back to my attention xD At the moment I'm reading Gretel and the Dark which, to be honest, I'm not that impressed with, so I really want to read some more fairytale related stories! Hope you get this book soon and have fun being a moderator if you get the chance! :) Thanks for stopping by my WoW and following :)

  10. Seriously, I NEED this book. I first found it on other's blogs as well, and I've been DYING for it to release! I really wanted an ARC from NetGalley, but the book odds weren't in my favor on that front . . . I'll just have to [[impatiently]] wait like everyone else!
