book.chat ~the strangest book I've read~

Happy Book Chat Day!

Today's theme is ~ The Strangest Book You've Ever Read and I am linking up with Jessica from Sweet Green Tangerine and Life on Cephei for today's book.chat.



This one was hard for me.  I have read so many books, but couldn't think of a "strange" one.  I have read some historical fiction, books with magic in the story, some really dark books.  Then, finally, it hit me!  DUH!  The strangest book I have ever read (or attempted to read) is...


Gregory Maguire has written a masterpiece.  No, I have yet to complete Wicked.  I have made two attempts and plan to try again this year.  The furthest I have made it was when Elphaba and Galinda were in college.  The last time I tried to read it was in 2013.  My mom had bought us tickets to see the musical in San Francisco and I wanted to read it before we saw it.  Yeah, I didn't make it very far.  I am going to try again though.

Once I get through Wicked, because I will, I want to read the rest of the series: Son of a Witch, A Lion Among Men, & Out of Oz.
