It’s said that the Wizard left Oz in a hot air balloon. What the tales left out what that a storm knocked him off his course and into the poppy fields to sleep. Until he was woken with no memory of who he was. But when ignorance is bliss it also teaches the Wizard that being good is all about perception, and acting has always been his specialty. With the biggest danger to Oz being Dorothy Gale, the Wizard might be the key—or the final piece in Oz’s destruction.
Dorothy has placed her claim on Oz, becoming the Wicked Witch. But don’t tell her that. Power-hungry and vicious, Dorothy, punishes everyone she pleases. Everyone except Glinda who seems to be the real puppet master here. Jellia is about to discover that the real Wicked Witch has always been there, hidden behind pink smiles and false kindness. A Witch who will sacrifice everything for power.
Dorothy Gale, while happy to be back with her family, is unhappy with her dreary life back in Kansas where she was been reduced to just another ordinary prairie girl. Dorothy wants nothing more than to be returned to the vibrant landscapes of Oz, to be a hero of the people, but more importantly, a celebrity. And when a pair of red shoes appear under her bed with a note from an old friend, Dorothy knows just how to get back to Oz, and this time she’ll stay there, no matter the cost.

Hey there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. For me my fiancé is coming to visit next weekend for Halloween so I’m trying really hard to get as much done as humanly possible so that I don’t have to worry about school work and can somewhat relax with him. It’ll be nice J. School going great I’m working on three different projects right now, I’m editing one book, typing the second, and starting something completely different that has dragons because who doesn’t love dragons. And there is something not working in the first chapter of my novel so I’m going to finish fine tuning it for my creative writing class so that I can turn it in and figure out what isn’t working. Maybe it’s the fact that I wrote it 5 years ago and my writing style has changed, maybe it’s something in the presentation. I don’t know, that’s what class is for. So this weekend was really dedicated to that and lots of reading and writing. But anyway, check out my weekly reading list for the next week. Happy reading!Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #61”
Hey there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Lots of reading this weekend for homework, which is going to be tons of fun. Well, one of the books for class, A Writers Book of Cures and Spells by Marcia Johnson, it’s not that it’s bad, but it is hard to read because it’s written in such an unfamiliar way. It’s very different and has a strong way of lulling the reader, which isn’t bad but it definitely is a good story to read to relax the mind, but it’s not easy to read. Then I have Borges Labyrinths, I’m liking it so far, it’s all the supplemental reading I’m not looking forward to, reading essays, not really my thing, but maybe I’ll be surprised and I’ll find them interesting.
It pains me to say this, but this book was a bit of a disappointment. There is a war going on in this book and whereas I can respect the author for not wanting to focus on it the way in which it is written makes me think that the characters are going to have a big impact in the war. Granted they do have … Continue reading Out of Oz (The Wicked Years: Vol. 4)
