Waiting on Wednesday #4: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for! 

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Heartless

Author: Marissa Meyer

Expected Publication Date: November 8th, 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.
I've only read the first two books written by Marissa Meyer, but anytime there's a book that's a retelling of a classic fairy tale, expect me to check it out anytime!
So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!

  7. I've only read Cinder by this author, but his book sounds really good. I hope you enjoy reading it.

  8. I'm excited for this one, but I know a lot of people are more excited than I am. It sounds good, but it's kind of like the Wicked books and The Wizard of Oz: the how-did-they-get-to-this-point story is interesting, but you know what's going to happen in the end. But, who knows? Maybe Meyer will completely flip everything?

    Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it.
