Waiting on Wednesday: Dorothy must Die by Danielle Paige

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick this week is:
Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1)
Dorothy must Die by Danielle Paige
Expected publication: April 1st 2014 by HarperTeen
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've seen a lot of people getting ARC's of this lately. The title caught my eye. The synopsis made me even more curious. This sounds like one fabulous read. I cannot wait to check it out!
Let me know what you guys are waiting on in the comments!


  1. Great choice! I just finished this one and it's definitely worth the wait! It's incredibly fast-paced, very dark, and just a bit gorier that I expected! I can't wait to see what you think of it!

  2. Eep! This sounds like such an interesting book! I'm in love with all things Wizard of Oz themed, so I'm pretty excited for this book's release. Great pick!
