Waiting On...

Title: Heartless
Author: Marissa Meyer
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
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.

Why I'm Waiting...

I recently (and finally) finished reading the short stories in Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series, and I wanted more! While I know we won't be getting much more from that world, other than the graphic novels, I still want to read more from Meyer. It just so happens that she has a book coming out this fall that fits the bill!

As a child, I watched the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland countless times, and I always admired the Queen of Hearts. Yes, she was evil and scary and goofy looking and everything that a kid probably wouldn't like, but something about her was just cool.

It will be interesting to see another take on the Queen of Hearts in Meyer's Heartless, especially one that seems like it's going to be full of romance! I'm really interested in seeing where Meyer takes Cath and what will happen in this new novel. Is it November yet?

What Are You Waiting On...
