Yellow Brick War | Danielle Paige

I enjoyed this book, not as much as the first two but it was still good. I didn't love the beginning of this one as much just because I missed Oz. Actually even when we got back into Oz I didn't feel like it was as magical as the first two. As always the characters in this book were great I love how they interact, how they speak, how they make choices. Overall this was a good book not my favourite in the series, but I still enjoyed reading it.

Did I just finish 2 books in one day? Yes! Read final book in omnibus Vol 3 of Wizard of Oz series. The final book was Scarecrow of Oz and I feel Baum at this point was getting better at writing a coherent story, even if this is one of the shorter books in the series. PS I'm meant to be Dorothy in this filter.

#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 🌪🌈👠

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 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 😬😱 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

What an adventurous read! Dorothy wants to be rescued from the strange land she happens to be in accidentally and wishes to go back home, but before that, she goes on a series of thrilling events with her friends (Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Woodman) and her dog Toto. I absolutely loved reading this tale.
