Waiting on Wednesday: Heartless

Waiting on Wednesday for Heartless from Amber, the Blonde Writer
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm talking about the newest and first standalone novel from my favorite YA author, Marissa Meyer!

Title: Heartless
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: YA Retelling
Publication Date: Nov. 8, 2016

Goodreads summary:

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 cannot wait for this story! Anything from Marissa Meyer is something I'll love, but also because it's another retelling!!
