Audio Book Review Dorthy Must Die by Danielle Paige

18053125

I didn’t ask for any of this.
I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.

But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a yellow brick road—but even that’s crumbling.

What happened? Dorothy.

They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas.

I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.

I’ve been trained to fight.

And I have a mission.

Jan’s Review

Overall i enjoyed this book i own the first book in print but found that the local library had it in audio version — yeah another book off my shelf.  The twisting of the Wizard of Oz we all knew and love is the perfect read to shake up your normal reading.  I really enjoyed listening to this as an audio book.  Audio books are made or broken by the person who is reading and entertaining you.  The narrator was the perfect choice for this story.

The setting intrigued me and I loved reading about this new, darker, not so brightly colored Oz! And the idea that wicked is now good and good is now wicked was super intriguing! I curious to see where the rest of the story goes and i saw on goodreads their a whole slew of mini novellas along with this story as well so i will be checking into those as well.  I have The Wicked will Rise all cued up and ready to continue the adventure.

This is this week sketch for My Favorite Things  it been a long time since i picked up my stamps and made a card for a challenge i been dabbling in mini albums and mixed media canvases.  I recently picked up some Zig Clean Color markers and i decided this week i would get them out and see what i could create.

So i started out with some watercolor paper and some tim holtz distress inks to make my background i added some white paint flicks.  Then i cut a panel and used a mft stencil and textured paste to make the wall looking background behind super girl.  I colored super girl with the zig clean color makers and then die cut her out with the matching dies for this stamp set.  I Then used two different sentiments i heat embossed in white embossing powder and used die-namics to cut out.  I Then added some punch circles for the moon and then used my heatwave pen to add silver to some wood veneer stars.  That’s my card for this week hope you enjoy it if you have any questions don’t hesitate to comment and i do my best to answer them.
