Waiting on Wednesday

I decided to join in on a weekly anticipation kind of thing. I was looking online for memes and I think this one would be the best for me for right now. Just until I get into the groove of writing on a consistent basis.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

While there are already so many books on my TBR shelf (cough cough BOOKCASE), there are so many more that I want to get. SO many more that I feel like I have to have in my collection. So this week I am anticipating getting at the beginning of April

  • Hardcover: 464 pages
  • Publisher: HarperCollins (April 1, 2014)

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!

This sounds like it is going to be SOOOOO good. I cannot wait. I am not going to pre-order it or anything but I will be at Barnes and Nobel buying this the same day it comes out.  I have a thing for re-tellings and this sounds EPIC!!
