Author: Marissa Meyer
Publication Date: November 8, 2016
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 am extremely excited for this book, and it is also a stand alone for you guys that aren’t into series. I loved Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles series, so I have extremely high hopes for this. Plus it is like a prequel to Alice in Wonderland, so what gets cooler than that?
What book are you waiting for? Anyone else an Alice in Wonderland fan?
