Top Ten Tuesday #1, 2016

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  I haven’t been participating in any memes, and I don’t want to commit (well, that’s probably the wrong word. It isn’t as if you HAVE to do these every week… no one’s making you… anyway..) to many of them, so this […]

Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Synopsis (From Goodreads): I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero.

But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Top Ten Tuesday #4

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish.

They created the feature out of a love of lists and, well, the rest is history. Here at Literary Obsession, we’re hit or miss on whether we particular in that week’s list, but we do love lists just as much as the next list-loving person, so it is a regular enough feature on the blog. If you’re curious about this week’s topic… head on in!

Meanwhile, time is running out to rescue Cinder, who was abducted by Hess and Sable for his unique abilities. Then Roar arrives in a grief-stricken fury, endangering all with his need for revenge.
