Despite a pretty low rating here I'm really enjoying Wicked so far. From what I can make out the musical has a much lighter tone so perhaps a mismatch in expectations explains it. I bought a year's subscription to Bookly recently and I'm enjoying using that too... Litsy is still my one true love though ❤️❤️
Morning off, book and a huge cuppa... Housework be damned 📖😍

Spooky.... My friend picked up this keychain for me a while ago.... She'd no idea I owned Wicked....I've had it for ages.... Randomly decided to read it a day before I got this oooooo eeeeee ooooo
Next up.... Very mixed reviews so I'm curious. I'm also very grumpy tonight.... This parsnip randomly abandoned by my son is my spirit vegetable.....
I wasn‘t as entranced with this book as I thought I would be. I adore the musical developed off this book which led me to read it. I felt that some of the character development was lacking and the story line actually had some holes or just abruptly ended at places it should have been more fully developed.
I loved the musical, the book was very much eh. It had a solid idea behind it but just dragged and dragged. Won‘t continue the series.
This is my fall TBR. While I might not read all of them and I may read books not on here, this is a list for me try to get through. If anyone wants to #buddyread any of them with me just let me know.
Last day of #colormepretty! It‘s #secondarycolors!
I really like the Handmaid‘s Tale TV show, but I haven‘t read the book yet. Same with The Darkest Minds. Wicked I‘ve tried to read, but I was at the beach and it didn‘t hold my attention. I LOVE the musical though. My Sister the Serial Killer is a book I‘ve seen a lot on here, and I can‘t wait to get my hands on it.

I finally read Wicked. Even though I knew what happens to the Wicked Witch at the end I really enjoyed how the author made it all come together.
The sun‘s starting to go down so I‘ve moved fireside #24b4Monday
On my way to see Wicked. I love this show so much!
Just got home from.seeing Wicked for the first time. It was amazing! I spent lots of dollars on things I really didn't need! #noregrets
Happy Mothers Day! It's Wicked time 🧙♀️
“People always did like to talk, didn't they? That's why I call myself a witch now: the Wicked Witch of the West, if you want the full glory of it. As long as people are going to call you a lunatic anyway, why not get the benefit of it? It liberates you from convention.”

I kept reading, hoping this book got better as I went but it just dragged on and on and on and on and on.......... It felt like this story could have been told in half the pages
1/5⭐ The 1st 20% about Elphaba's parents had no point, no trajectory, & was bizarrely, jarringly sexual. For a book supposedly about the Wicked Witch, we don't get her perspective until 25% of the way in & never an explanation for her green skin or water weakness. I skipped to the end to see if it got better, but no, the surface-level incoherent narrative didn't resolve itself in any way. #fantasydragon #adventureathon #fantasyadventureathon
I never use the words humanist or humanitarian, as it seems to me that to be human is to be capable of the most heinous crimes in nature.
Unfortunately, I have not seen the musical Wicked... yet. Had no idea what to expect from this #fairytaleretelling . I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing, and how much I was drawn into the story of the green skinned Elphaba. An intelligent, brave woman who wanted love. Of particular interest was her fight for the rights of Animals, and her relationship with Glinda. #booked2019
Walked on the campus of the historic Haverford College today. Founded in 1833, many of the OLD (Bingo Square) buildings have been preserved. Here are views of two of them. #litsywalkers #litsywalkersbingo
Yesterday‘s #audiowalk. No time to post. Time spent celebrating Valentine‘s Day! This neighborhood shop was in the spirit, displaying an abundance of celebratory #flag (s) ! #litsywalkersbingo #litsywalkers
While out on my #audiowalk, I noticed quite a few cars in a parking lot with their windshield wipers raised up in the air! New to me. Thinking it has something to do with preparing for more snow which is in the forecast?!? #litsywalkers #litsywalkersbingo #unusual
Love this map of The Land of Oz! #maps
I don‘t read a lot of these but I have read some really good ones now I think about it. Wicked is one of my favourite novels of all time, and I also loved Home Fire (retelling Antigone), the Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood, the Song of Achilles, Ragnarok by AS Byatt, Dream Angus by Alexander McCall Smith. Come to think of it, the whole Canongate Myths series is amazing!
#MusicalNewYear Does anyone else miss Glee??? I REALLY loved that show and how awesome that both Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth have co starred!!!!! https://youtu.be/z3H-Nbfdpas
Haven‘t read this #FairyTaleRetelling suggestion for #Booked2019 🤩❣️

So much love in this post for my recommendation today. The book is amazing; I love "otherside of the tale" stories and this delivers. The musical though...wow! I love the music and the theatrical experience, I've seen it 3 times and I'd go again & again in a heartbeat

Galinda didn‘t see the verdant world through the glass of the carriage; she saw her own reflection instead. She had the nearsightedness of youth.
I always love a book that takes a classic story and tells it from a new perspective. Although, I will admit that I like some of the changes that the musical makes better. 🧹💚🙊
Rereading a favorite!
Not a 🤳 person. But here's my daughter and me in NYC this summer. We spent one glorious day there! Couldn't score Hamilton tix but Wicked was pretty darn good.
