Waiting on Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where each week You share a a book that you've been eagerly waiting on.


 This week I'm waiting on . . .

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige due out this April through Harper Teen.

Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1) 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!

This sounds AMAZING!!! And there's a rumor floating around that the CW has picked it up for a tv show. WHAT?! Yes, please!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Wow. This sounds really cool. I've never been a particular fan of retellings, but this one sounds just too good to resist!

  2. Yes! I just watched the Wicked play and would love anything related to The Wizard of Oz now! Can't wait for this one!
