Waiting on Wednesday {18}

Hey everyone and welcome to my weekly Waiting on Wednesday meme post! This is just a once a week deal where each Wednesday I post about one book I am looking forward to reading and then link it up to the host blog, 
Breaking the Spine, where I can be connected to over 200 other readers and bloggers who are looking for a new read! My friend Kim from kimberlyfayereads participates in this meme each week and it has always looked like a great time. Below you will find the book cover, synopsis, Goodreads link and my reasons for waiting on this read! Enjoy!

This week's WOW (my first of 2015) is... The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige!

Series: Dorothy Must Die
Publisher: Harper-Collins
Release Date: March 31, 2015
Genre: Young Adult

In this dark, high-octane sequel to the New York Times bestsellingDorothy Must Die, Amy Gumm must do everything in her power to kill Dorothy and free Oz.

To make Oz a free land again, Amy Gumm was given a mission: remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, and then Dorothy must die....

But Dorothy still lives. Now the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked has vanished, and mysterious Princess Ozma might be Amy’s only ally. As Amy learns the truth about her mission, she realizes that she’s only just scratched the surface of Oz’s past—and that Kansas, the home she couldn't wait to leave behind, may also be in danger. In a place where the line between good and evil shifts with just a strong gust of wind, who can Amy trust—and who is really Wicked?

Why am I waiting?

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock knows that I am absolutely obsessed with Oz. All things Oz. Also, I'll let you in on a little secret... I'm Danielle Paige's biggest fan. Seriously. Go search my blog archive. I've got so many posts dedicated the DP and Dorothy Must Die, that I have lost track entirely. Seriously you guys, it's one of my all time favorite reads. If you guys had a chance to check out my Top 14 Most Anticipated Reads of 2015 post last week, you would have already seen my raving about this novel. I seriously cannot say enough about how excited I am. Its' predecessor, Dorothy Must Die was named my Top YA Read of 2014. That was a huge category for me and DMD won it hands down. How could I not be excited about this read? I honestly don't know what I am expecting from the sequel, except that DP left us hanging big time in book one. That cliffhanger ending sets us up for an incredible continuation of the story. Also, I am dying to know if any Wicked Witched rise from the dead. I'm pretty sure I would die from happiness if Amy and the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked were able to resurrect either the Wicked Witch of the East or West. That'd put Dorothy in her place. Just saying. Except I'd want the squat, three pigtailed, one-eyed version that Baum created and not the green-skinned beauty that the world has come to love.  Guy's gotta dream, right? We shall see. Regardless of what tricked Danielle Paige has up her sleeve, I know I will fall just as hard for The Wicked Will Rise as I have for everything else she has written. Are you guys pumped?! March 31st can't get here fast enough!

What are YOU waiting on this week?

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading!
