Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating. This week I’m going for Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I know there’s a lot of people out there waiting to get their hands on this one, including me. If you’ve read her series ‘The Lunar Chronicles’ and you liked it, this is her next novel and I’ve heard so, so many good things!

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.
