Wishlist – A Wonderlandiful World by Shannon Hale

18774022I’ve wanted to read this book for a-g-e-s but never got round to it. I can’t wait until I finally read it!

“At Ever After High, everyone is expected to sign the Storybook of Legends, pledging to follow in their fairytale parent’s footsteps. But when Raven Queen came along, things became fairy, fairy confusing. Now no one’s destiny is certain, not even for the most royal of them all, Apple White.
When a mysterious being from Wonderland begins to infect Ever After High with a strange magic, everything goes topsy-turvy. The students transform into animals and objects, palace mice talk, and the beautiful green grounds on campus fade to black-and-white. Lizzie Hearts, Wonderland’s future queen, Cedar Wood, daughter of Pinocchio, and Madeline Hatter, heir to the Mad Hatter’s Hat and Tea Shoppe, seem to be the only ones who haven’t completely lost their heads. It’s up to them to save their best friends forever after from a curse that threatens to give their school-and their lives-a very unhappy ending.”

Favourite Book: The Storybook of Legends by Shannon Hale
“At Ever After High, an enchanting boarding school, the children of fairytale legends prepare themselves to fulfill their destinies as the next generation of Snow Whites, Prince Charmings and Evil Queens…whether they want to or not. Each year on Legacy Day, students sign the Storybook of Legends to seal their scripted fates. For generations, the Village of Book End has whispered that refusing to sign means The End-both for a story and for a life. As the daughter of the Evil Queen, Raven Queen’s destiny is to follow in her mother’s wicked footsteps, but evil is so not Raven’s style. She’s starting to wonder, what if she rewrote her own story? The royal Apple White, daughter of the Fairest of Them All, has a happy ever after planned for herself, but it depends upon Raven feeding her a poison apple in their future. What if Raven doesn’t sign the Storybook of Legends? It could mean a happily never after for them both.

Favourite Audiobook: The Fairy-Tale Matchmaker by E.D. Baker
“Cory is a young tooth fairy in training who wants to be anything but that, except there’s no way the Tooth Fairy Guild or her mother will let that happen. After yet another bad night on the job, Cory quits to explore other things—like babysitting an adventurous Humpty Dumpty, helping Suzy organize seashells by the seashore and attempting to finally rid the spiders that plague Marjorie Muffet. But it isn’t until Marjorie asks Cory to help set her up with a boy, that Cory taps into a power she never knew she had. As she tries to understand her new-found romantic visions, will Cory finally discover her own true path?

Happy new year!

REVIEW – Girls Heart Christmas edited by Jo Cotterill & Julie Sykes

Girls Heart Christmas is a collection of short stories that are set at Christmas time. There are lots of 23601150diverse themes in the stories and each one is very different. There are family and friendship dramas, sci-fi, animal tales and more.

I really enjoyed the whole book. Here is more about some of my favourite stories:

Evie’s Christmas Miracle by Jenny Smith
This is the last story in the book and it finishes it with a real bang! Evie has Tourette’s Syndrome and she is starring as Mary in the nativity play. The story made me smile all the way through, and the ending was especially fantastic.

Guarding Agnes by Alex Campbell
Billy is coping with the loss of his parents. They died on Christmas day, and he has kept quiet ever since. This is a moving story about acceptance, and I found it really enjoyable.

The Keys To The Ice Palace by Lynda Waterhouse
I wish this story was a whole book because I really want to read more about this world! The characters were intriguing and the setting was atmospheric.

Even though Christmas is over, I recommend this book to everyone!
