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 feel like I have been waiting forever for this book already, lol. And it still isn't out until November. Sobs. I would do anything, anything to be able to get a print ARC of this book. For my big, very lovely, collection, which you can see here :D I need Heartless. I need it more than anything. Gosh. I just love Marissa Meyer so much. Her books have all been perfect to me. And I know I am going to love Heartless so, so much. It's going to be perfect. Sniffs. I want to read it so badly. Oh, I can't stand waiting. Sobs.
What are you waiting for on this heartless Wednesday?
I really hope you get one of these, Carina!! You are such a devoted fan of Marissa's, I can't think of anyone that deserves it more! :D Like you, this is one of my most anticipated reads this year---one of my favorite authors reimagining the classic story that is closest to my heart. I can't wait to see what she does with Wonderland.ReplyDelete
YES!! So excited for this one!! Waiting truly sucks!ReplyDelete
Hope you're doing well sweetie!
After reading Cinder, I told myself I will read anything Marissa Meyer writes. SO EXCITED FOR THIS!! (but that cover though... not that it's bad but it just isn't that beautiful.. and that release date though.. ugh.).ReplyDelete

I'm curious about this one, though I'm not sure if I'm curious enough to want to read it, if that makes sense! I have only read Cinder by Meyer. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!ReplyDelete
Have a fantastic week, Carina. =)
