Waiting on Wednesday - Dorothy Must Die


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!

Eek. I am so excited for Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. I have been so fangirl over all the fairy tale re-tellings that have come out lately and I have been overly excited about this one since I read my first review. I love  Oz almost as much as Wonderland and I think this sounds amazing! Are there any other upcoming re-tellings that I should add to my list? Are you excited for Dorothy Must Die?
