The End of Oz (Dorothy Must Die #4) by Danielle Paige

The End of Oz (Dorothy Must Die, #4)The End of Oz by Danielle Paige
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 other girl 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?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have so many mixed emotions about this book. I loved every moment of it and I didn't want it to end!!! I laughed! I cried! I was happy and sad and happy again! This series has by far been one of my most favorites!!! Someday, over the rainbow...

Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die #3) by Danielle Paige

Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die, #3)Yellow Brick War by Danielle Paige
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: Assassin. 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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm not sure there are many more ways for me to say how awesome I believe Danielle Paige to be. That being said this was probably my favorite so far!!! I love that Amy has returned home and gets to taste a bit of her old life before having to return to Oz to fight another battle. I'm anxious to begin the next book and see how Amy defeats the next evil!!! And I'm so praying that she gets the boy!!! She deserves it after all the work she's done to defend Oz and take down Dorothy!!!! Another great read!!! This whole series is fantastic!!!

The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die, #2) by Danielle Paige

The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die, #2)The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige
In this dark, high-octane sequel to the New York Times bestselling Dorothy Must Die, Amy Gumm must do everything in her power to kill Dorothy and free Oz. To make Oz a free land again, Amy Gumm was given a mission: remove the Tin Woodman’s heart, steal the Scarecrow’s brain, take the Lion’s courage, and then Dorothy must die... But Dorothy still lives. Now the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked has vanished, and mysterious Princess Ozma might be Amy’s only ally. As Amy learns the truth about her mission, she realizes that she’s only just scratched the surface of Oz’s past—and that Kansas, the home she couldn't wait to leave behind, may also be in danger. In a place where the line between good and evil shifts with just a strong gust of wind, who can Amy trust—and who is really Wicked?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As always Danielle Paige has done a fantastic job!!! I absolutely love this series. It's made me like Wizard Of Oz like I never have before. Amy Gumm is a strong character who is like any other young girl trying to find her purpose and place in the world and in book 2 she begins to find her way. Can't wait to start book 3 the Yellow Brick War. Which I'm doing as soon as I close this out. 🙂

Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow, #1) by Danielle Paige

Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow, #1)Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige
First kisses sometimes wake slumbering princesses, undo spells, and spark happily ever afters. Mine broke Bale. Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent her life locked in Whittaker Psychiatric—but she isn’t crazy. And that’s not the worst of it. Her very first kiss proves anything but innocent…when Bale, her only love, turns violent. Despite Snow knowing that Bale would never truly hurt her, he is taken away—dashing her last hope for any sort of future in the mental ward she calls home. With nowhere else to turn, Snow finds herself drawn to a strange new orderly who whispers secrets in the night about a mysterious past and a kingdom that’s hers for the taking—if only she can find her way past the iron gates to the Tree that has been haunting her dreams. Beyond the Tree lies Algid, a land far away from the real world, frozen by a ruthless king. And there too await the River Witch, a village boy named Kai, the charming thief Jagger, and a prophecy that Snow will save them all.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As always Danielle Paige delivers a great story. I will admit this story was not at all what I was expecting. However she's got me hooked!!! All the twists and turns of the story at the end had me on the edge of my seat!!! I can't believe I have to wait to find out what happens next!!! Great job Danielle!!! Great story!!!

Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2) by Kendare Blake

Girl of Nightmares (Anna, #2)Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake
It's been months since the ghost of Anna Korlov opened a door to Hell in her basement and disappeared into it, but ghost-hunter Cas Lowood can't move on. His friends remind him that Anna sacrificed herself so that Cas could live—not walk around half dead. He knows they're right, but in Cas's eyes, no living girl he meets can compare to the dead girl he fell in love with. Now he's seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he's asleep and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong...these aren't just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears. Cas doesn't know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn't deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it's time for him to return the favor.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an amazing end to this story!!!! I teared up. Happy tears. I'm so happy Anna is at peace. Tho I will miss Cas and Thomas. Maybe a spinoff???

As always Kendare writes and amazing tale that you just don't want to put down!! Anna dressed in blood is one of my favorite series and I recommend it to everyone!!!

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons WhyThirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
You can’t stop the future. You can’t rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play. Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why. Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great book. I loved how Clay follows the map around town listening to Hannah's cassette tapes. It made the whole thing surreal. And bottom line, never judge someone based on apparences or rumors and gossip, you NEVER know what they are going thru or why. One day it may be you that needs just that one person to reach out. Dont bottle it all up. If you feel like you're spiraling out of control reach out to even one peson even if you feel stupid. It may just change your life.

The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #3) by Michelle Hodkin

The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #3)The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Mara Dyer wants to believe there's more to the lies she’s been told. There is. She doesn’t stop to think about where her quest for the truth might lead. She should. She never had to imagine how far she would go for vengeance. She will now. Loyalties are betrayed, guilt and innocence tangle, and fate and chance collide in this shocking conclusion to Mara Dyer’s story. Retribution has arrived.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this series! I loved the Journey Mara takes, how she gets there and how it comes to an end. I loved following her grandmother more in this book than the others. I have to say tho chapter 73 was annoying and could have been summed up faster. But the epilogue was perfect. I will miss Mara and Noah, and the way Jamie made me giggle.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can. She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed. There is. She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love. She’s wrong.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. Talk about cliffhangers. I need to start book 2 asap. Following Mara through out her adventure after her breakdown really got to me and felt like I was there with her walking the path with her. But something was off and I didn't know what. This was not the twist I was expecting. And loved every minute of it. Awesome book.

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

The Romeo and Juliet aspect is what attracted me to this story. But the apocalyptic aspect mixed with the time frame just kept losing me. This was not a book for me.
