Read This Month

I did a number on the list I had created for myself, and that was a doozy! It was mostly ebooks, so unfortunately, it’s not much of a picture…more of a list.

Dorothy Must Die

I

Am

Screaming.

Ok. So not out loud. At least no more than my husband is. (Notre Dame is playing Stanford right now. In the rain. It’s not going well.)

But holy cow. Dorothy Must Die is a tornado.

Where Wicked is a prequel, this is the sequel. The story of after. After the four defeat the Witch of the West and get their gifts. After Dorothy goes back to Auntie Em’s farm.

Guess what? She comes back. That farm life just wasn’t good enough for her. And she comes back in a BIG way.

This book is action, fantasy, dystopia, all wrapped up in one crazy book. Something is incredibly wrong in Oz and everyone has their own views on fixing it.

I really liked how Danielle Paige used the modern day version of what Dorothy Gale would be–a lonely, rebellious pink haired girl from the trailer park. She used that same gumption and turned it into badassness.

I’m looking forward to reading the sequel on this! I definitely want to find out what happens next!

I’ve Been Meaning to Read This

I grew up on a farm in Indiana, surrounded by corn and beans, so it’s no wonder that I love The Wizard of Oz. A dreamer of a young girl, wanting more than what she sees of every day life, somewhere over the rainbow.

Not to mention, I’ve always been fascinated by tornadoes.

And then there is Wicked, which is a brilliant reincarnation of Oz. R and I go see the show every single chance we get. We have an unwritten covenant that if the show is near us, we go.

When I started seeing reviews of Dorothy Must Die, I knew I had to read it. I instantly added it to my hold requests, and it’s taken months to get it from the library. FINALLY, they let me have it!

I started it yesterday, and so far, I love it.

Welcome to the first day of October! For those of you that missed it on Tumblr, I completely revamped my TBR list and filled it with all things thriller, fantasy or fall-themed (with the exception of a few books I that have a deadline). We’ll see how many I can get through before the clock strikes midnight on Halloween!
