Waiting on Wednesday.... Dorothy Must Die

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

My pick this week is Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
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!
Teased as Kill Bill meets Wizard of Oz and I was immediately sold. The whole remove the Tin Woodman's heart, steal the Scarecrow's brain and take the lion's courage?! HECK YES. I can't wait to see Amy do all of this. Turning Dorothy bad could either go disastrously wrong, or deliciously right. Luckily, based on the e-novella No Place Like Oz, it seems to be off to a fantastic start.

Expected release date - April 1, 2014


  1. I really want to read this book too, but I'm afraid it won't live up to the hype. I hope it does though!

  2. I haven't made up my mind if I want to read this or not. I may wait for some reviews to come in before I decide. But I hope you enjoy reading it!
    My WoW

  3. YES! I want this! I was sold on Kill Bill meets the Wizard of Oz alone but that synopsis makes it even more amazing


I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
