TBR Thursday
Bog Child - Siobhan Dowd
A Fire Upon the Deep - Vernor Vinge
Wizard's First Rule - Terry Goodkind
Lord Peter Views the Body - Dorothy L. Sayers
Macbeth (Hogarth Shakespeare) - Nesbo Jo

This is the clean up round, folks, just clearing the decks before I begin The Summer of Spies!

 

I'm finishing up a rather busy week, looking forward to some time on the weekend and next week to catch up on my library books.  The weather here has been lovely, inspiring me to spend an evening wandering a local park with a cousin.  And I've done a household purge, taking an enormous quantity of clothing, bedding, etc. as a donation to a charity. 

 

Still to be done:  I bought plants on the long weekend which I need to get transplanted into my balcony planters.  One of my friends gave me a lovely bunch of rhubarb and I intend to make Ginger Vanilla Stewed Rhubarb either tonight or tomorrow.  Plus all the usual household stuff that one has to attend to when one lives alone and can't delegate. 

 

I wish you all a happy weekend of reading!

Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die) - Danielle Paige

 Amy went home to Kansas to be with her Mom and Jake. But I believe she will go back to Oz. she says her home is not a place but with a person, Nox. He comes to Kansas to be with her

 

I believe she will go back because at the end of the book her shoes start to glow and another portal, a tornado appers to bring her back to save Oz once again.

"The Wicked never rests"
Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die) - Danielle Paige

I chose this quote because Amy never stops fighting. She won't stop fighting until oz is safe. This also shows that all members of the Order and committed to OZ. Nox is one of the hardest working of the Order.

Playing With Bonbon Fire
Playing With Bonbon Fire - Dorothy St. J... Playing With Bonbon Fire - Dorothy St. James I got an ARC of this book from Netgalley and Kensington Publications, for my honest opinion.

Charity Penn is busy running the The Chocolate Box the chocolate shop that she inherited from her grandmother Mabel in the seaside town Camellia Beach, South Carolina. Bertie is still making the luscious bonbons for the shop, and Penn keep has hopes that she’ll be able make the bonbon's like Bertie. The beach side town is abuzz because it’s time for the Summer Solstice Beach Music Festival. Pop star Bixby Lewis is there as a favor to Penn’s half-sister, Tina. He’s being followed by a stalker who causes trouble while telling people they are an item. Tragedy strikes the music festivities when a singer for one of the bands performing at the festival dies in a bonfire. Penn finds herself trying to find who threw a rock through the front window, then who shot the same window, and finally who drove a car through the front of the shop, all while trying to create a bonbon for the festival and trying to find out what happened to Mabel's missing daughter who maybe her mother.

This was a nicely paced mystery with a couple of subplots that all come together very nicely at the end of the story. The mystery was has a few red herrings and several twists and turns to go through before the the true culprit is revealed. The characters seem to leap from the page by the way the author describes them and makes them so life like. I like how Penn seems to be growing and accepting the situations in her life. I also like that the author has opened up a possible relationship between Penn and Harley her friend and lawyer.

Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die) - Danielle Paige

As a reader my favorite type of book to read is fantasy books. When I was little I really liked the Wizard of Oz. As I grew older I read all the books I could find about it. Then I found these books.

 

Dorothy Must Die is not what you would expect of this classic tale. It is centered around a girl from Kansas, named Amy Gumm. Once again she is taken from her home and moved to OZ.  She is faced wit a set of problems she must solve. Can her new friends help her? Are they really her friends? Can she fight her feelings so they dont get in the way of her work? Will Amy Gumm survive?
