"I have to say I am very excited to start this last book of the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire. I LOVED Wicked, was underwhelmed by Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men but of course couldn't help but count the days for Out of Oz to hit the book stores. I can't wait to find out what happens to all the characters and the new green grand daughter mentioned at the end of Son of a Witch. So happy." Nov 06, 2011 07:11AM

This was my first graphic novel and I only read it because of Christopher Moore of which I am a fan. This might have been more entertaining as a novel. It was a strange little story and am glad it was a quick read.

Dark Babblings by VinGlori (Poetry)

Description: Poetry? I guess that is subjective. Babblings? Well, I think we can agree on Babblings and these are a little on the Darker Side. Isn't that where writing is most fun.....at least maybe cathartic. Let me know what you think.
