Wizard of Oz

Ok, for some odd reason, a lot of TV channels start airing Wizard of Oz around the holidays.  I, myself, do not see the connection.  Maybe it is because Dorothy finally realized what home is all about.  It is not necessarily blood, but people you love and surround you.  That is probably what it is.

Have you ever read the book?  The book is actually very interesting compared to the movie.  But, both have great qualities. The book itself has many more characters than the movie.  I honestly love the little China girl.  The hammerheads . . . they scared me as a child lol.  Glenda is actually a very old lady, who protects Dorothy by kissing her on the forehead.  Not using the ruby red slippers.  Oh! And yes, there are pictures

The movie, is visually beautiful.  The colors, the characters, the dancing, etc.  My favorite part of the movie?  When Dorothy first walks into Munchkin Land after the house lands.  Second is the part when they finally arrive at Emerald City.

 

Which do I prefer?  I honestly cannot choose as they are both special in their own ways.  Which do you prefer and why?

Bonus: Why do you think Wizard of Oz is always tied into the holidays?

Friday Fun Day – Sharing is Caring

It’s FRIDAY!!! Whoohoo!!! I literally yell that in my head all day every Friday lol.  Let’s play a little catch up shall we?

I am REALLY enjoying Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman on my commute to work and back home.  On my lunches when I am home, I read Bound in Fate by my bestie E F Rose. I just got another book to add to my To Be Read pile, which will be started shortly by Aaron Speer.  That is why I LOVE weekends lol, I get to curl up either in bed or on the couch with my hoodie and my sharks blanket and just get lost in a book, with a cup or two of coffee.

I believe Friday Fun Day should include some #FollowFridays in my posts.  An author or a fellow blogger.  Hhhhmmmm, which one should I do today?  I think I should rave about my bestie’s book(s).  E F Rose is first of all, a badass woman.  She is amazing on paper, and she is amazing in person.  I have watched her characters blossom, and even she makes me wait until the next book for things to come lol.  She is currently writing her third book in the Fallen Guardian books.  The first book Divinely Entwined is the first book in the series, while Bound in Fate is the second book.  She not only writes novels, but she also writes really hot poetry.  Like steamy hot lol.

If you like a book that is steamy, full of hot guys, has violence, and wings . . . these are the books for you.  And while you are at it, pick up Echoes and you will never put it down, and you will never look back.

Christmas is around the corner, so you can find her books at Amazon, and get them within a few days, it is not too late.  You have a family member or a friend who loves fantasy novels, these will sure win over their hearts.

Click on the pictures and they will take you to their Amazon pages.  You have the options of ebook and paperback.  Go ahead, give them a whirl
