Waiting on Wednesday: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

"Waiting on Wednesday” is weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that highlights books that people can't wait to get their hands on. Here is my pick for this week!

This week, the book that I am counting down the days for is Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1)

Synopsis 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!

Expected Publication: April 1st, 2014 from HarperTeen

I requested this ARC as soon as I saw it. I grew up watching The Wizard of Oz and the cover and summary are definitely interesting. Such a creative plot! Great pick!

Let's try that again...Here's my WOW.

I have this one on my list too! I'm actually hoping to get my hands on an ARC here soon--I work in a bookstore and we just received an ARC. After one of our other booksellers are done with it, I get to read it. I'm really excited!

Great pick :)
