This week’s book: Yellow Brick War

Yellow Brick War Danielle PaigeTitle: Yellow Brick War
Author: Danielle Paige
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: March 15, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

Once upon a time, there was a girl from Kansas named Dorothy.

You might know her as the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone. She ended up in Oz, where she became friends with the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. But the temptation of magic was too much for her. She let it change her. Her friends became twisted versions of their former selves.

The magical land of Oz is now a dark and menacing place.

My name is Amy Gumm. Tornadoes must have a thing about girls from Kansas, because I got swept away on one too. I also landed in Oz, where Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and the Wicked Witches clued me in to my true calling:


The only way to stop Dorothy from destroying Oz—and Kansas—is to kill her. And I’m the only one who can do it.

But I failed. Others died for my mistakes. Because of me, the portal between the worlds has been opened and Kansas and Oz are both in danger. And if I don’t find a way to close it?

Dorothy will make sure I never get to go home again.

OMG I am so excited for Yellow Brick War! I have read and adored the other two books in the Dorothy Must Die series and have been waiting an entire year for this final instalment. I’m sure that this will be the perfect conclusion to the trilogy, and I can’t wait until I can have it in my hands.

    I have the first two books of this series and have yet to read them! *hides behind hands* it is shameful, but maybe once this third book comes out, I can binge all three! I hope you like it when you get to it 🙂
    here’s my WoW!

    I have actually held out on this series so that I could have a marathon read when the final book released. It has not been easy, since the first two are sitting on my shelf at right about eye level! Can’t wait to finally read this series, already!

    Now that the whole series is out I’ll have to give it a try. I’m not a big Wizard of Oz fan but this kind of turns the story it on its head!
