DNF at 33%. I listened to 2 hours and 30 minutes of this audiobook and it was not working for me at all. I had no idea what was going on in the story. Chances are I’ll read this in print (most likely e-Book) maybe in October. I did read the synopsis and was intrigued by it, so maybe I’ll have a better experience reading it in print.
Today’s review is going to be a review of a whole series. One of my goals this year was to finish series that I have already started, and I recently finished one of them. I recently finished The Land of Stories Series by Chris Colfer.
Worlds Collide, the final book in the series.
Last year (2018), I read the first three books in the series, and I just recently finished reading the last three. This was such a refreshing middle-grade fantasy series, that takes fairy tales like Cinderella, Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and more and puts them into their own world called the Fairy Tale World. The Series follows twins Alex and Conner Bailey as they discover who they really are, travel to the Fairy Tale World, grow up, meet some amazing characters, make new friends and fight evil along the way. This series has a great sibling relationship, strong friendships, and a complex world. I really loved this series, and it is one that I would love to see adapted for Netflix.

One of my goals this year is to post one book review a week, so today I bring you my first review of the year.

I’m going to be completely honest with this review. First of all, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl wasn’t my favorite book, but I didn’t hate it either. Why it took me so long to read this book is beyond me. This book was hilarious and such an adventure. I also loved the use of swear words, it made the characters more relatable. I loved the way this book was formatted too, especially the conversations, which were so entertaining to read. There is some music terminology in this book that I didn’t understand but it did not take away from my enjoyment of this book.
