Wishing on Wednesday (28)

Wishing on Wednesday @ Debz Bookshelf

Wishing on Wednesday is a weekly meme to feature recent and upcoming releases that I’m wishing for!


Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

 

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.

f 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!

Why I Want It:

I can’t help by laugh at the title and cover of this book, simply because they look and sound ridiculous. But the synopsis sounds OUTSTANDING. One of my earliest memories is of watching The Wizard of Oz, and I’m proud to say I’m obsessed. So this book makes me nervous, but in a good way. I can’t wait to read it and see what I think!

  2. The title and cover are definitely "catching" and then you add in Wizard of Oz. This is definitely going to be a goodie. At least I hope so lol.
    Hope you enjoy this and I will definitely be looking out for your review!

  4. I'm going to have to pick this one up as well! The cover looks...different, and the title is hilarious! But like you said the synopsis is what won me over too! I love re-tellings of old stories that I enjoyed as a kid, so this one will have to go on my wishlist!

I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
