~Waiting on Wednesday~ Queen of Hearts

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes
Out: 5/3

From Goodreads:
                As Princess of Wonderland Palace and the future Queen of Hearts, Dinah’s days are an endless monotony of tea, tarts, and a stream of vicious humiliations at the hands of her father, the King of Hearts.  The only highlight of her days is visiting Wardley, her childhood best friend, the future Knave of Hearts—and the love of her life.

                When an enchanting stranger arrives at the Palace, Dinah watches as everything she’s ever wanted threatens to crumble.  As her coronation date approaches, a series of suspicious and bloody events suggests that something sinister stirs in the whimsical halls of Wonderland.  It’s up to Dinah to unravel the mysteries that lurk both inside and under the Palace before she loses her own head to a cleaver and faceless foe.

                Part epic fantasy, part twisted fairy tale, this dazzling saga will have readers shivering as Dinahs furious nature sweeps Wonderland up in the maelstrom of her wrath.

                Familiar characters such as Cheshire, the White Rabbit, and the Mad Hatter make their appearance, enchanting readers with this new, dark take on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Why I’m Waiting:
                I have really enjoyed all the different fairy tale twists I’ve read so far so and I really love the Alice and Wonderland take on things the world is just so vibrant there is so much that can be done with it.  I’ve always hated the Queen of Hearts I mean she is vicious!  So a different take on her or at least before she was the Queen of Hearts and giving her depth sounds like fun.
               

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out!

    1. Same! I love knowing one story and seeing something completely re-imagined but that seems to fit perfectly.
