Dorothy Must Die
Dorothy Must Die | Danielle Paige
The New York Times bestselling first book in a dark new series that reimagines the Oz saga, from debut author Danielle Paige.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 tornadotaking you with ityou 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 blue birds. 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 road of yellow brickbut 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 Gummand 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: Remove the Tin Woodman's heart. Steal the Scarecrow's brain. Take the Lion's courage. AndDorothy must die.

I was SO excited about the world promised in this book, and so disappointed by the the delivery. What this could have been in the hands of, say, Brom, would have been amazing! Instead, it‘s a Mary Sue tale that falls apart at the end.

TheBookAddict Sad to hear, especially since I own most of the books in the series. Luckily I got them on one of BookOutlet‘s sales. I‘ll still read them, since I own them. Hopefully I like them when I get to them. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 7d
CindyMyLifeIsLit @TheBookAddict Yes, don‘t go by my opinion! I have friends who hate some of my very favorite books, and if I had been guided by them I would have missed out on books that are very important to me. Everyone has different tastes, so good luck with them! 7d
TheBookAddict So true. Thank you. 🙂 6d

Intrigued.

ericareadslibros Oh wow this has been on my Kindle for a long time. I haven‘t read it yet. Curious to know your thoughts 😊 3w
ShyBookOwl @ericareadslibros so far, it's entertaining. It's a pretty straightforward way of discussing the danger of letting power go to your head. The main character is kind of annoying but I guess all teenagers are 😂 3w

I normally steer clear of YA ... angsty teen romance or sparkly vampires really aren‘t my preferred genres ... but this was pretty good. I like the source material and Amy seems believable in her role. Not sharing “the plan” really moved the story along as I wanted to see where it was going. Thank you Hoopla, this was an audiobook review. ⭐️⭐️⭐️7/8 ... Happy Sunday 😁

I liked this twist on ‘The Wizard of Oz‘ and Dorothy. Amy Gum and her trailer are swept up from Kansas in a tornado. Nothing is what she thought and nobody is who she thinks. She is recruited by revolutionary witches but can she do the task she was recruited for?
The writing isn‘t the greatest but the story makes it tolerable. The narrator is good. I have my issues with the story but I can get passed those and enjoy it.

ulrichyumiodd I read a few pages a few months ago and couldn‘t get into it. I‘ll have to try again someday! 4mo

None of my audiobooks were striking me so I downloaded Libby on my phone and found one that did strike me. So far not bad, I‘m only 45 minutes in. I love a good retelling/twist to an old story/fairytale.
Also happily it is only 74% humidity! No chowder walk this morning. #bfcr2

I first discovered I was trash three days before my ninth birthday- one year after my father lost his job and moved to Secaucus to live with a woman named Crystal and four years before my mother had the car accident, started taking pills, and began exclusively wearing bedroom slippers instead of normal shoes.

🌈 I have not read this whole series yet. I read the first book and then bought the other 3 right away but they have been sitting on my bookshelf for months now. After taking this picture I promised myself I would read my library books that I have checked out first then finally read the rest of this series.

This was the first book in a while that I have been unable to put down. I LOVE The Wizard of Oz, so that might have something to do with it, but i found it so fast paced while being full of detail and imagination.

#booked2019 What is good is evil and what is wicked is good? Amy‘s mother is an alcoholic, her father left, and she has no friends. When a 🌪 hits her Kansas trailer, she is taken to Oz but nothing is how is should be. The wizArd and Dorothy have return. Dorothy is an evil princess with the scarecrow, the tin woodman and the lion as her henchmen. I so wanted to love this. However the story has so many holes and Amy is not likable. There are

MicrobeMom Are no satisfying interactions among the characters. I get the tough girl thing is important and all the rage right now, but Amy is just unbelievably angry and stupid most of time. So disappointed! #fairytaleretelling @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen @Librarybelle (edited) 9mo

ravenlee @TheReadingMermaid I found it really depressing - NOTHING went in the MC‘s favor. There was a character who existed entirely for the purpose of having a goth, foul-mouthed Munchkin (who was killed within pages of her introduction). The rebels send an untrained new recruit into a dangerous situation without telling her she has an ally or arranging any sort of secret handshake or anything to identify an ally...I could go on. 10mo
ravenlee @TheBogwitch I won‘t even try it. It doesn‘t sound really interesting to me, and I hate how drawn-out the releases have been. 10mo
ravenlee @Callemarie I tried The Secret History when I first for it (having seen several rave reviews), and it was meh. I got about 40 pages in. It sat on my shelf for years. I finally picked it up again and skimmed it, including reading the last page, and thought, “why did I ever buy this stupid thing?” and passed it on. 10mo

This was a super fun book! Poor Amy getting thrust into the woods of a very changed Oz. And then being told she is the one who can save them all! Good is wicked, Wicked is good, trust no one. I could not put this one down!

Jilly6183 I‘ve seen so many screen shots of this app! Is it only for digital books? 13mo
HufflepuffGirl90 @Jilly6183 nope! You just scan your physical books in using their ISBN. Or search for them manually through the app to load them into your library. 13mo

A darker take on Oz than the Wizard of Oz, but not as grim as Wicked - it‘s the perfect YA balance. I should have read this at 14 instead of Wicked! Good and Wicked still have an intrinsic meaning in this novel, it‘s just not quite clear what that is... #YA #fantasy

Anyone else reading multiple books at once? Top and bottom are my audio books. I‘ve been scattered lately in everything and it‘s carried over to my reading apparently 🙄🤷‍♀️ #currentlyreading #amreading

Librarybelle I have so many going it‘s not funny! Thankfully, I am able to keep track of the storylines, but I really need to finish some of these! 1y
MelissaSue81 I usually do one audiobook and one print, and sometimes I‘ll have a read aloud going with my daughter. 1y

A great young adult series I thoroughly enjoyed. Dorothy let power go to her head and is ruling Oz. All the good characters you once knew and loved are now evil, and all the bad ones are trying to save OZ along with Amy, a girl from Kansas who gets bullied and lives in a trailer. I love a good under dog story! Great imaginative storytelling!
