Review: My Very UnFairy Tale Life

My Very UnFairy Tale Life (My Very UnFairy Tale Life, #1)

My Very UnFairy Tale Life

By Anna Staniszewski

Blurb: You know all those stories that claim fairies cry sparkle tears and elves travel by rainbow? They're lies. All lies.
I've spent my life as an official adventurer. I travel across enchanted kingdoms saving magical creatures and fighting horrible beasts that most of you think are only myths and legends. I've never had a social life. My friends have all forgotten me. And let's not even talk about trying to do my homework. So -- I'm done!! I'm tired and I want to go back to being a normal girl. But then along comes "Prince Charming" asking for help, and, well, what's a tired girl like me supposed to do? 

Genres: Juvenile, Fantasy, Humor

Series: My Very UnFairy Tale Life by Anna Staniszewski

My Rating: 3 stars

I had mixed feelings about this book. It was...bizarre, to say the least. But even so, I found it entertaining!

This was definitely a fluff read. The fact that I could read this without problems on only five hours of sleep says a LOT. However, despite all my problems with this book, I managed to enjoy it. Maybe not 'read the sequel NOW' enjoyment, but an 'aww, that's cute' enjoyment. Unicorns learn to share? Cute. Gnomes who like chocolate? Cute! Lamb princes who needs rescuing? Very cute!

I have a feeling that this author has coulrophobia. The antagonist was not only an evil sorceror, he was also a clown. (Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns, and no...I do not know if it is spelled exactly like that.) This is where the bizarre label comes in. I mean...a sorceror clown? Really? Creative, I guess, but...come on.

Plus the aunt who baked things with animal food in them. Ew. And the animals who had no mouths. -cue the creepy music-

To summarize, there are two words that I would use to describe this book: cute and bizarre. No, it's not the highest praise I've ever given a book, but I didn't hate it.
