Have you seen the big news shaking up the blog-o-sphere this week?

New York Times Best Selling Author Marissa Meyer finally announced the book that will follow the conclusion of her Lunar Chronicles Quartet.

Are you excited? I'm excited!

Known for her unique way of retelling fairy tales, Marissa takes on Lewis Carroll's much-beloved Alice in Wonderland...this time through the "villain's" POV!

She teases,

A prequel to “Alice in Wonderland,” HEARTLESS will tell the tale of how a marquis’s teenage daughter became the infamous Queen of Hearts. It will be a story of whimsy and madness, passion and tragedy, ravens and writing desks.

She started writing this in 2012, but was only allowed to mention it this week! To find out more tidbits, check out the great Q&A on her site!

She'll mention goodies such as how Gregory Maguire's WICKED inspired her, how it may or may not be a standalone, and how the following book will likely be the first in a new series. Check it all out, like now! ^_^

Even better?

We won't have to wait a bajillion years to read this! It's projected to be released in Fall 2015...only half a year after the final Lunar Chronicles novel, WINTER, drops!

*throws confetti*

Want even MORE good news?

You can already add this book to your GOODREADS TBR!!!

If you're not reading this series, you should be. Marissa Meyer has reinvented fairy tales and created a powerful futurist fantasy series.
