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.
