Waiting on Wednesday (37)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
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!

I first heard about this book from the girls at Epic Reads, and their enthusiasm for it makes me really excited to get my hands on a copy!

  2. Whoop! This cover is gorgeous and retellings are my favorites! <33 I've seen a few negative reviews of this one, though, so I'll be a bit wary, but I'm still definitely checking it out!
