Lit Cube June Spoiler

LitCube August 2015 Theme Spoiler!


And the book featured this month will be YA. What do you think of the theme? Any guesses on the book? (The only YA Oz book I can think of is this one, but I’m guessing that won’t be sent since it has been out for a while). UPDATE – now I’m guessing it might be this book.

  1. I’m guessing Spelled by Betty Schow “Spoiled and sheltered, 16-year-old Princess Dorthea of Emerald has just found out that her parents are forcing her to marry arrogant Prince Kato. Outraged at her parents order, Dorthea makes a hasty wish on a cursed star, throwing her kingdom into chaos and landing her parents in a strange place called Kansas. With the help of a cunning maidservant named Rexi and the annoyingly rude Prince Kato, Dorthea sets out to undo the curse before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells “The End” for the world of Story. This is a a cute adventure with romance set in a world full of fairy-tale mash-ups. Readers will love Dorthea’s evolution from spoiled princess to strong, confident heroine. There’s plenty of action as Dorthea, Kato, and Rexi seek the help of the mysterious Wizard of Oz and encounter headless hags, tricky bumpkins, demonic puppies, and forlorn witches along the way. Though he’s full of some unique surprises, Kato makes an excellent Prince Charming for Dorthea and helps her realize her inner strength. The plot tends to meander and can be confusing at times, but young fans who stick with it will find plenty of fairy-tale references, an unexpectedly sweet romance, and loads of adventure along the way. VERDICT For Oz fans, this work is a great clean-read alternative to Danielle Paige’s Dorothy Must Die (HarperCollins, 2014).—Leigh Collazo, Dulwich College, Suzhou, China “

  2. I had already signed up for this monthly subscription box. The boxes look like they keep getting better & better! Peggy, the curator/owner, is awesome to deal with!

  3. I caved in and subscribed. I love Oz!

  4. If it is your second guess, OP, I wouldn’t mind! It was a fun read and would look great on my shelf!

  5. Any other book nerds out there who had their first thought be, “But in the literary ‘Wizard of Oz’ (as opposed to the movie) Dorothy’s shoes were silver, not ruby!”?? 😉

    (Not like it actually matters, haha, but it still made me smile.)

  6. I hope so, I’ve been wanting to read that book!

  7. I can’t wait! I love Oz. This is such a great box. 😀
