Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
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.
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!
How about? What are YOU waiting on?
Like you I’m quite a fan of the Wizard of Oz and Dorothy Must Die sounds like a fantastic read. I love twists on old stories, thanks for sharing. Here’s my pick this week
YES, yes yes! I am stoked for this one. It sounds incredible. And I love Oz! Great pick!

This one is definitely a different twist on the original story! I think I’l be adding this one to my TBR list! Great Pick (:

Been seeing Dorothy Must Die on a lot of WOW’s this week. Awesome Pick.
I’ve seen this one around, it definitely looks like it’d be right up my alley. The premise is truly full of promise and I love retellings. The cover is also super cool 🙂
This one scares me because I love The Wizard of Oz so much, but I really hope you enjoy it!
Ohhh lots of people are anticipating this one. Sounds so good!
