Waiting on Wednesday (174)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Heartless by Marissa Meyer (11/8/16):

Description on Goodreads:
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:
Oh my goodness, this sounds amazing! I love this author.  Her Lunar Chronicles is probably hands down one of my all time favorite YA series. I cannot wait to see what she does next. Also, I have such a soft spot in my heart for Alice in Wonderland retellings. I know Meyer will do this retelling like a pro. I love that it’s about the future Queen of Hearts too. And I love picturing the future Queen of Hearts just wanting to open a bakery with her best friend. Yes. Why is November so far away?
What are you waiting on this week?
