Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we share those upcoming book releases that we just can’t wait to get our hands on!
This week I’m waiting on:
By Marissa Meyer
Published by Feiwel and Friends
Expected Publication Date: November 8, 2016
Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.
Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend and supply the Kingdom of Hearts with delectable pastries and confections. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next Queen.
At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the king’s marriage proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship.
Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
After what Marissa Meyer did for Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Snow White in the Lunar Chronicles series, I am absolutely DYING to see what she does for the Queen of Hearts in Heartless. I adore retellings, and I’m sure this one will be amazing!
