Waiting On Wednesday #4

Hosted by Breaking The Spine

18053060Dorothy Must Die - 
by Danielle Paige
Publication Date - April 1st

Description (from Goodreads)

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!

While I am not a huge Wizard Of Oz fan I am a sucker for retellings of pretty much anything and this book just sounds awesome.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. Not a huge fan of Wizard of Oz either but I also love retellings! This looks even more fascinating because it sounds so dark. Great pick!
