Waiting on Wednesday | Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

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

Release Date: April 1st 2014 from HarperTeen

S u m m a r y :
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!

Reason for waiting:
If you know me AT ALL you know I don't have to say anything about why I chose this title for Waiting on Wednesday. YA hasn't seen a Wizard of Oz retelling in... well, ever so this is pretty exciting! I'm totally excited for this to release!

What are you waiting for this week?


  1. Okay, this sounds fantastic. I'm really eager for this one to release too! It's a total twist on the original tale but I'm totally on board. Thanks for stopping by! Really love your header design. :)

  2. I just saw this one the other day on one of the egalley sites, I think, and requested it. It actually sounds really good and such a creative idea for a book! Great pick! Thanks for stopping by my WOW!

  3. This is a total MUST HAVE for me! I too love the concept and the whole "turning the Wizard of Oz on its head" thing sounds amazing! Great pick!
    Thanks for stopping by my WoW today :)

  4. Watching EpicReads Tea Time has made me so excited for this book! I'll have to brush up on my Oz (I don't think I've even seen the film all the way through - shameful!). Plus that cover is cool :) thanks for sharing! :)

  5. I saw this in Entertainment Weekly and was like OH YEAH. Can't believe it might be a show, too! Good pick! :)

  6. This sounds so good! I really can't wait for it to come out. I'm a big fan of Wizard of Oz re-tellings. I've been to see Wicked more times than I'd care to admit!
