Waiting on Wednesday: Heartless

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Pub. Date: November 8, 2016


Goodreads says, "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 wasn't a big fan of fairy tale retellings until I read Meyer's Cinder and Scarlet. She's the best at what she does, so I can't wait to read this book focusing on Alice in Wonderland. What do you guys think?

  1. Ooh great pick Christina! I am curious about this one. I hope that she will be a more likable protagonist than Levana was in Fairest.
