I am anxiously waiting for Heartless by Marissa Meyer
Synopsis via 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.
I can’t even tell you how badly I am trying to get ahead of my NaNoWriMo word count so that I can slack off a little bit and not feel guilty about it. Now I have been hearing a lot of mixed reviews already and while that makes me a little nervous, I haven’t let those reviews effect my feelings about it. I am going to go in with my own thoughts and feelings (which if we’re gonna be real, I’m probably already in love with it…)
I love Alice in Wonderland and I love seeing retellings of it, I’m pretty sure that I will never get enough retellings of Alice. Just keep them coming
