Dorothy Must Die Stories Vol.2
By Danielle Paige
So now…I have to wait till February to get the latest Dorothy Must Die series…can someone give me The End of Oz…like RIGHT NOW??? I CAN’T WAIT ANY LONGER TO READ THE FINAL!!!!!! Yes, I’m crazy, again. But I must say, also I gave this book 3 stars, I think it’s better than the first volume of Dorothy Must Die Stories. I like Ozma, either she is crazy little fairy or an all-powerful queen. And…except from Tin, I really like Ruler of King and The Straw King stories. By the way, Heart of Tin, The Straw King, and Ruler of King are the short stories in this volume. These are all stories happened before Amy Gunn comes to Oz, and how those characters were been corrupt by the evil magic of Oz. However…someone was truly evil, always and always. (Well? I never like pink…so I’m not so fond of that character. Yet…I do like Strawberry Sundae.) 
Heart of Tin
Everyone knows the Tin Woodman as Dorothy's lovable sidekick, the tin man who longed for a rea…

No Place Like Oz
After returning to Kansas, Dorothy Gale has realized that the dreary fields of Kansas don’t compare to the vibrant landscapes of Oz.

Tales of Stars (Part 2)

Years past, they’d traveled throughout the world. And they had grown to know each other so well that they could communicate even without words, with a single glimpse, they knew. Of course, from the moment they knew the truth in the shadow, they had known they belonged together. But their bound grew tighter while they traveled the world, while every day they lived together.

The journey had blown the princess’s mind. In her life, she had never left her continent, nor had she imagined a world without flowers and warmth. Together, she and the prince brought sunlight and shadow to the world.
During the day, she spread the radiant sun all over the place she arrived, and left precious gifts that decorated the world. Where she stepped, spring and summer followed, flourish and vitality remained.
During the night, the prince and the princess bestrewed both moonlight and starlight onto the sky, lit up the darkness. Where they arrived, stars and moon followed, where they danced, stars and moon twi…

History of Lilliput

Gather around, brothers and sisters, brothers of my soul, sisters of my blood. Hear the true history of Lilliput.
Have you ever wonder the truth of Gulliver’s Travel? Let me tell you the truth, for I am the bard of Lilliput, who heard the true history from the old. Now…
Once upon a time, a cowardly man was saved by the countrymen of Lilliput, who was now called Gulliver. However, there were actually two Gulliver, Gulliver of Lilliput, and Gulliver of England. Although with the same given name, they had an entirely different characteristic. Gulliver of Lilliput was one of the most successful man in the country, loved by all people, the wise adviser of the emperor, not to mention the hero of war. While the guy from England? A coward and a fake, he brought nothing but trouble.
When Gulliver of England first came to Lilliput, he did cause a huge sensation across the entire country, since he was the largest man we’ve ever seen, as big as the castle itself, as heavy as the…

The darker the sky, the brighter the stars.

Tales of Stars (Part 1)

A tale always hides a tale; a secret always hides a secret.

It’s said that when the great princess cries, rain drops; when she sobs, winds blow.
There will always be a moonless night, no stars, no light, only endless darkness.
Wind blows furiously, rain drop heavily. All animals hide, all trees bow. They hide from the anger of the Mother Earth. While humanity might think all of this a natural phenomenon, there is a tale lies behind.
A tale of broken heart, a tale of sorrow, a tale of amend.
And here, was where the story began.
Once upon a time, a princess and a prince lived happily on the land.
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess. Her hair was as dark as the night, her skin as smooth as the water, and the most special of all, was that she had eyes with different colors. One of her eyes was as bright as the sun, while the other silver as the moon. They shone so brightly that you could barely look straight into them. However, the people remembered her not because of her appearance…

Pottermore Patronus New Announcement
I know that’s a lot…but sorry, I forget some other post than reviews are important too!!! I fail my book tag goal terribly these months…such a busy freshman. (Nonsense, I spent most of my time wandering around.) So! Let’s start with Pottermore Patronus!!!
I was so excited when I heard the announcement and I did the quiz immediately that day, without any hesitation. Really, immediately. And you know what? I love my Patronus!!! I know a lot of people out there hate their Patronus, since it might be a salmon…or something like that. But, there are also extremely wonderful Patronus, such as Griffins, or Phoenix. However, they’re also extremely rare as well. I think I also got a rare Patronus? At least that’s what Pottermore told me, unless it said it to everyone. Still, I wish everyone of you love your Patronus regardless how much you hate the animal, Patronus aren’t always what we think they are. Ready to reveal my Patronus?…

Finally, after 365 days…I’m going to write the review, why? Because it’s SO GREAT that I LOVE it and couldn’t say anything until now.
