This week's pick...

The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All the Way Home (Fairyland #5) 

by Catherynne M. Valente 

Expected publication: March 1st 2016 by Feiwell and Friends

Quite by accident, September has been crowned as Queen of Fairyland - but she inherits a Kingdom in chaos. The magic of a Dodo's egg has brought every King, Queen, or Marquess of Fairyland back to life, each with a fair and good claim on the throne, each with their own schemes and plots and horrible, hilarious, hungry histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn't want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarckical Marathon, in which every outlandish would-be ruler of Fairyland will chase the Stoat of Arms across the whole of the nation - and the first to seize the poor beast will seize the crown. Caught up in the madness are the changelings Hawthorn and Tamburlaine, the combat wombat Blunderbuss, the gramophone Scratch, the Green Wind, and September's parents, who have crossed the universe to find their daughter...

I am so in love with this series. it is such a fun yet complex middle grade book. I have also come to love all the characters especially September and ca't wait to see this epic conclusion.


  1. I've heard awesome things about this series. I don't read much middle grade, but it's always nice when you find one that is epic.

  2. Ooo! Is this Middle Grade? I've not heard of this series! The cover is pretty :D I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Britt :)
