book palette || dorothy must die

17 February 2015

when i first heard about dorothy must die, i was extremely excited. a story based around the wizard of oz where dorothy was the baddie? i wanted it then and now. when i finally got my hands on the book i read the first two chapters and put it down (i think i was in a partial book slump so i didn't make it far!). i didn't like the writing style. i was disappointed.  
but, because i'd been so excited to read it i put it back on my shelf and resolved to re-try it again later. later turned into eight months, and when i finally picked it back up i read the whole thing. and enjoyed it. not much. but it kept me reading. honestly for me. i think it was a case of pretty book syndrome. i was attracted to the cover, the premise sounded good, so immediately i was hyped. i think the cover is by far the best part of the book which is why i am featuring that instead of writing a review. but if you've already been wanting to read it & just haven't got round to it yet, don't be put off by me; everyone has their own opinion.
I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero.

  1. I haven't read it yet...but I feel like 0% motivated to read it, actually. haha. I've felt that way for a while! I've nearly owned it for a year too. >.> Gah. I'm going to read it for a fairy tale retelling challenge I have but it's actually LITERALLY on the bottom of my stack of 20 books. heh.

  2. I've heard so much about this book and the premise completely captured me! But I haven't felt like reading it recently and I know how you feel:) Sometimes you want to like a book so badly that you kinda like it in the end;)
    The cover is amazing! It makes me want to read it too.
    If its a series maybe it'll get better?:P
    Oh well!

  3. I started it and didn't finish it either. I loved the premise and the book cover but it just didn't hold my attention. I was really bummed because the book had such promise!

  4. Same goes for me, girl. I just adored the cover and the synopsis--and yes, maybe the hype as well. I ended up finishing it, but I think I gave this one two stars. :(
