BOOK TRAILER TUESDAY: Out of Oz by Gregory Maguire







This series changed the way I thought about books.  I had previously only read romance novels, sci fi, historical fiction and memoirs and it opened my eyes to whole new genre of books.

  1. I read Wicked only because I wanted to read it before seeing the stage production... I didn't really like it though to be honest. It'll be interesting to see what this new one will be like!

  3. yes! reading out of your usual "genre" is wonderful.

    I read one of the books a couple years ago - the one about the cowardly lion.

    These are so so very different from the televised Dorothy Wizard of Oz aren't they?

  5. @megan -- I saw the stage production too, and thought that it was a bit like a high school production. It was only my second musical and I don't think they agree with me LOL
    @Harvee - I am on page 100 with it right now. Thankful that there is a recap in the front since I can't remember anything anymore!
    @Kathryn -- my older brother and I really bonded over this series, now we read a lot of series together.
    @grace - Tell me about it. My rant last week was how I couldn't get used to everything changing, but my computer died and I now have windows 7 -- which is a LOT different than my old one. It is nice to have something new for a change since I always ended up with *hand me downs*
