Teaser Tuesday (#33) and November Novellas (#19): No Place Like Oz (Dorothy Must Die #0.5) by Danielle Paige


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s Teaser comes from the following book:

Title: No Place Like Oz
(Dorothy Must Die #0.5)
Author: Danielle Paige
Publisher: HarperCollins
Published: November 12, 2013

Purchase: Amazon  |  B&N

From Goodreads:

In this digital original novella, Dorothy travels back to Oz to reunite with old friends, but her story may not have a happy ending. No Place Like Oz is a prequel to the forthcoming novel Dorothy Must Die.

After returning to Kansas, Dorothy Gale has realized that the dreary fields of Kansas don’t compare to the vibrant landscapes of Oz. And although she’s happy to be reunited with Aunt Em, she misses her friends from the yellow brick road. But most of all, Dorothy misses the fame and the adventure. In Kansas she’s just another prairie girl, but in Oz she was a hero. So Dorothy is willing to do anything to get back, because there really is no place like Oz. But returning to the land she left comes at a price, and after Dorothy is through with it, Oz will never be the same.

Perfect for fans of Alex Flinn, Marissa Meyer, and Gregory Maguire, No Place Like Oz is a dark reimagining of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Building off of its rich mythology, Danielle Paige creates an edgy, thrilling story for teens that chronicles the rise and fall of one of the literature’s most beloved characters. This digital original novella is a prequel that sets the stage for the forthcoming novel Dorothy Must Die.


In keeping with my November Novellas theme this month, I'm sharing two teasers from No Place Like Oz by Danielle Paige.  This is a prequel novella to the upcoming April 2014 release, Dorothy Must Die.  I'm having mixed feelings about Dorothy and this story at the moment, but I'm sure it is setting up for great things to come.  At only $1.99 for an estimated 132 pages, this is a great novella buy!

My teasers:

"That is, until we'd finished our lovely picnic, set off traveling again, 
and made our way a few more miles down the road.  
That's when the screaming started."
                                                                                           - Kindle loc 751

And because I'm being a rule breaker today... one more:

"Because without magic, you're just left with Kansas."
                                                                                  - Kindle loc 819

I’d love to know what your Teaser is!
