The Sunday Salon - Something WICKED!
I am rapidly falling in love. How many times have I said this about a book I put off reading for a scandalously long time? Once "everyone else" in the world has read it, I pick it up and fall in ooey gooey love and gush to the choir.
I won't go into full-on review mode because I do want to review this book in full when I'm done, but I'm really enjoying getting to know the cast of characters and I'm enjoying the political bent of this novel. Oz is not a happy place to be: coups, revolutions, terrorism, issues of civil rights. While I had an iffy impression of Maguire after reading The Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister several years ago, I am pleased to be having this good a time with Wicked. While I haven't been very good at following series lately, I'm excited that there's more to come in this series. I received the final book, Out of Oz, from the publisher a while back, so that's good incentive to buy Son of a Witch and Lion Among Men.
I'll be picking Greyson up early in the afternoon, so I need to finish my online work, get away from the computer, and get back to my book. What's in store this week at olde Estella's Revenge? I'm stewing on a couple of posts, but foremost is a discussion of Chunkster novels and what they mean to me. In other words, why they scare the heck out of me. I really enjoyed the discussion on the "reading tart" post, so maybe delving into more of my self-proclaimed flaws will spur on more discussion! :D
I hope you all have a fantastic, bookish day!
