Book vs. Movie: A Monster Calls

A heart-wrenching and moving audiobook and film, A Monster Calls is a unique story that digs deep into the themes of death and the grieving process. The movie is perfectly cast and is only slightly different from the original story, making it one of the best book to movie adaptations that I have seen in a while. Continue reading

Review: Truthwitch and Windwitch by Susan Dennard

As you may have noticed, I am pretty much obsessed with The Witchlands Series (Truthwitch and Windwitch) by Susan Dennard. I have posted many thoughts and even flailed over Truthwitch and Windwitch over the past year and a half on Twitter, Instagram, the blog, and beyond. Admittedly, I am a member of the Waterwitch Babes, part of the street team for Susan Dennard’s The Witchlands series. This is a series that I am passionate about because it is simply a well-written, jaw-dropping, action-packed series that contains some very bodacious and awe-inspiring characters. Continue reading

This week’s book: The End of Oz by Danielle Paige

The End of Oz by Danielle PaigeTitle: The End of Oz
Author: Danielle Paige
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: March 14, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Ding dong—Dorothy is dead.

I watched as the Emerald Palace crumbled to the ground, burying Dorothy, the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone, under the rubble. And now that the rightful ruler, Ozma, has been restored to the throne…

Oz is finally free.

My name is Amy Gumm. You might remember me as the othergirl from Kansas. When a tornado whisked me away to the magical land of Oz, I was given a mission: Dorothy must die.

But it turns out girls from Kansas are harder to kill than we look.

Now the Road of Yellow Brick is leading me away from Oz to the dark world of Ev, where I have a new, powerful enemy to deal with: the Nome King. And—surprise—he has a gingham-clad bride.

With my magical shoes and a shrinking group of allies, I have one final chance to fulfill my mission, and save not only what’s left of Oz, but Kansas, too. As the line between Good and Wicked blurs even further, I have to find a way to get rid of Dorothy once and for all—without turning into a monster myself.

Dorothy once said there’s no place like home. Can I stop her from destroying mine?
