Dorothy Must Die | Danielle Paige
post image
Mehso-so

I watched #TheWizardofOz in Technicolor every year at Easter. But when I was a kid, I must‘ve also read like 20 Oz books. Last night I spent a chunk of time down the Wikipedia rabbit hole last night trying to understand the Oz books copyright. Btw, if you donate at all, consider donating a coffee or two to Wikipedia.

And I finished Dorothy Must Die. Solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️ She did nail the creepy, though, gotta say. How many Oz books have you read? #yabooks

TheBookAddict I haven‘t read any, not even the original. I do want to read them though and I do own most of that series. I did go watch Wicked and loved it! 4h
OrangeMooseReads I have gotten through 5-6 of the Oz books. I started them after I started this series just to know more. I don‘t think I‘ve ever seen the movie all of the through. 4h
RiverKScottWrites @TheBookAddict Ohmigoodness I love Wicked so much! The books are just nothing at all like the movie. Part of that is so many authors. And part of it is that they were released so many, many decades apart. 26m

RiverKScottWrites @OrangeMooseReads Aren‘t they strange? I do think it helps make the Dorothy Must Die series more enjoyable when you know a little about the originals. 25m
OrangeMooseReads @RiverKScottWrites they are strange. They got to be a little too strange and I had to take a break. 23m
TheBookAddict @RiverKScottWrites yes, the play was amazing! I love The Wizard of Oz movie. For some reason it‘s one of the ones I choose to watch this season. Don‘t know why, but it‘s thrown in with our annual Christmas movies we watch in December. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 21m

#favoritebooktomovieadaptation You really have to ask? 😄 I guess it‘s only #humannature to long for home. And some of the magic in Oz seems a bit like #weirdscience #movember #gratefulreads #namastenovember #multitasking 🌪🌈👠

OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 3w
LibrarianRyan Nope. Didn't have to ask. 😁 We have signed first editions in our Illinois Authors collection. 3w

Eggs Great triple👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻I‘m an Oz fan from the get go! All my life I wanted to see those ruby slippers and finally I did at the age of 60 at the Smithsonian👠👠 3w
rubyslippersreads @Eggs I‘ve seen them in person twice; both times I cried. @BookieMary also took me to see Dorothy‘s dress when it was on display for auction. (No, I didn‘t buy it. 😊) 3w
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan That‘s something I‘ve never seen, though I have seen an unsigned first. 😊🌈 3w
LibrarianRyan @rubyslippersreads They were given to our library years ago. I don't think the entire series is signed but many are. I would grab pictures, but they are locked on display and I don't have keys. 3w
rubyslippersreads @LibrarianRyan Thanks for the thought, though. 😊🌈👠 3w

The Wizard of Oz | Salman Rushdie

The Wicked Witch of the West is much scarier in the movie, due to Margaret Hamilton‘s iconic performance. And I suppose a witch might enjoy living in a #ghosttown #characteryoulovetohate #gratefulreads #illgetyoumypretty #movember

Cinfhen Well done 👍🏽and yes, Wicked Witch was the stuff of nightmares 😬😱 4w
OriginalCyn620 Nice! 👌🏻 4w
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Great choice!!! 3w
GidgetsTreasures75 @rubyslippersreads I just read that the director of The Wizard of Oz edited out a lot of Ms. Hamilton‘s scenes because he felt they were too scary for children to see on the big screen! Can you imagine what he must of left out? That witch scared me for years!!! 3w

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. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 4w
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! 4w
TheBookAddict So true. Thank you. 🙂 4w

Saw this on my feeds today and thought it was a great story to share. They are building an actual yellow brick road in Humboldt Park where Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz. #yellowbrickroad #wizardofoz #theresnoplacelikehome

It recently occurred to me that I had never read this book. (I know.) So, I rectified that! It was a fun listen, though I‘m a little surprised at the amount of violence and talk of killing others in a children‘s book. I‘m not sure how this would be received in a new book nowadays.

vivastory I only read it this year, too. I've heard the series gets stranger & stranger 1mo
Hooked_on_books @vivastory Huh. That almost makes me want to continue. It‘s funny with the violence thing—older Disney movies are way more violent. I think we tolerated a lot more targeted at kids in the past than we do now. 1mo
