Waiting on Wednesday: 10/9/13

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die #1)

     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!

Why I'm Waiting: I'm not sure if this is the actual cover, but OMG THIS BOOK SOUNDS AMAZEBALLS. I'm only heard of a few Wizard of Oz retellings, but this is the only one that has caught my attention and basically HELD it. I haven't been able to think about anything besides this book since I heard about it on Epic Reads' Tea Time. I'm like super super excited about this one!
