The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making - Ana Juan, Catherynne M. Valente I liked this book. Something about it made me want to keep reading it but it felt like it went on forever. The characters were so colorful and loveable. The descriptions of the world was amazing really put you in Fairyland. I got an Alice in wonderland nonsensical feel to the book. My only problem was i had to go back and re read a couple parts cause they were so Nonsensical it didn't make sense unless you read it a couple time. It had a great story and a nice twist at the end. I would totally recommend it :)

The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom - I loved this book. It was such a fun book to read and I totally love "Prince Charming" all of them :) Cute adventure with the quirky prince charmings saving princesses sort of, battling witches to a point and gaining the fame they deserve they hope.....so very funny and the chapter titles are hilarious. Can't wait for the next book to come out. I can see this as a really cute animated movie.....Someone needs to get on that immediately :)

100 Cupboards (100 Cupboards Series #1)

100 Cupboards - N.D. Wilson First off I was annoyed the childs name was the same as the town. I don't know why it bothered me so much but it did. The story had great potential but fell flat. Everything seemed so nonchalant and vague at times. This first book should have been the set up to the worlds in the cupboards and gave you the who, what, where, when and how but it just didn't. I will eventually read the second book but as of right now im not sure if the second book will give me anything more and im not sure im willing find out. If i think you would like it you might, I did but i just felt like it was missing something.

The Lost Children

The Lost Children - Carolyn Cohagan

This was a cute book....confusing but cute. I wont give anything away but you would have thought something would have changed instead of stayed the same. That's all i will say. If you're looking for something different and a quick read i totally recommend this book :)

The Monstrumologist

The Monstrumologist - Rick Yancey Loved this book. Is now one of my favorite series. I loved the writing style. Being set in 1888 made it a lot more creepy, I'm not sure why that era is so spooky to me, but I loved it anyway. I'm not into writing reviews that explain the entire book ill just say at times it was a little wordy but it kept my attention until the end. The Main character Will Henry was VERY likeable and you really felt for him. Dr Pellinore was someone you wanted to hate but there was something about him that made you want to like him :) Rick Yancey really painted an amazing picture of what the late 1800's was like and the setting gave just enough creepiness to really set a spooky mood. It had some humor to it and some gore. It really is a fantastic book that I think isn't getting nearly enough attention......Well written, Rick Yancey, well written :)
