I love the retellings of Gregory Maguire. I will say sometimes I find them a bit bizarre but still so intriguing. I like his take on the classic stories.

He lingered at the door, and said, 'The Lion wants courage, the Tin Man a heart, and the Scarecrow brains. Dorothy wants to go home. What do you want?'... #sonofawitch #book #door #pixlr #gregorymaguire #quote #edit #saturdaynight

How awesome!! I love this author and the amazingly magical worlds that he develops around these childhood classics. Gregory Maguire's "Hiddensee" introduces readers to the backstory of The Nutcracker. Looking forward to delving further into the origins of one of my childhood favorites!

Hello everyone😄
Sorry for been lost for a time. I just didn't find very inspired and I didn't want to post nothing just for post... my apologies!
A few days ago I finished 'Wicked' by Gregory Maguire. I really enjoyed this read. I like a lot. I understand perfectly the description that say that "it's a fairy tale for adults". But we can speak of the end? I don't know already how to feel about it. It was not what I expect😞 I need someone for speak about it!! Have you read it? Let me know!
The synopsis from @bookdepository :
When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum\'s classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious witch? Where did she come from? How did she become so wicked? And what is the true nature of evil? Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will never look at Oz the same way again. Wicked is about a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence. And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to be the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart, prickly and misunderstood creature who challenges all our preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.

It's shaping up to be another incredibly rainy and miserably humid day here for us in VA. It's a good thing I have a new stack of #library books that I am excited to dive into. After my obligations, I intend to spend the day reading. I started Heartless last night, and it's more fun and fanciful than I had anticipated. It's the reimagined backstory of The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Has anyone else read it? I love concepts like this.. my most anticipated book release of 2018 is Spinning Silver, the reimagining of the #Rumplestiltskin tale. 👑Do you have a favorite fairytale reimagining, or even just a favorite fairytale? 💖 Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by #GregoryMaguire broke my heart.. so tragically good.
💖 The short story Snow Glass Apples by #NeilGaiman is the best retelling I've ever read. To say more would ruin the twist.
💖 The YA classics Beauty by #RobinMcKinley and Briar Rose by #JaneYolen are on my favorites list too.

'So, having found a lady could you not have come to her aid, or left her alone? Why Drag her into your foolishness?'
'Love', he explained.
She looked at him with eyes blue as the sky. 'I hope you choke on it', she said flatly. -Neil Gaiman, Stardust. ☆

The book journal theme for May was supposed to be Star Wars. Then, after doodling a terrible Millenium Falcon, a gigantic R2D2 and an excuse of Death Star, I gave up on what was supposed to be Darth Vader (but trust me, it wasn't). So I added a Dalek and decided for a Sci-fi theme, which goes perfectly well with the first two books I finished this month😄 #nailedit 💚

#Ampersand2018 Today is current. I just started Wicked and the first 50 pages are quite enjoyable 😄 will see how this goes💚

Mid-month check in: are you having a good reading month?😉 °

Omg u guys I haven't been to @barnesandnoble in like forever since working at a different bookstore. I forgot all about all the exclusive editions of classics. I went to pick up War Storm for the book signing for @victoriaaveyard and @beccajross tomorrow since I already have Queen's Rising from @shelflovecrate. I couldn't resist this exclusive edition of Frankenstein for my boarding house stair challenge. Looks like they updated their bags since my last visit with wicked and romeo and juliet. Got my first @starbucks and a free cookie!!! And I get to go back and do it all again tomorrow!!! How did I get so lucky?

Wicked: Life and time of the Wicked Witch of the West

Yet there was blessing in this night. Elphaba had forgotten blessing, too --- like so much else.

Any other #fairytaleretellings fans out there?! I’m a huge fan of #gregorymaguire but I’m an even bigger fan of #aliceinwonderland so when I came across #afteralice I had to get it! #bookstagram #booknerd #books #alicesadventuresinwonderland

I love how each story Gregory Maguire writes connects to fairytale or folklore. The Wicked series is by far his most famous book but if you haven’t read his other titles they are great reads! #books📚 #book #booklove #bookish #booknerd #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookstack #bookworm #gregorymaguire #fairytales #folklore #afteralice #whatthedickens #confessionsofanuglystepsister #booksy #bookaholic #librarian
