The Amulet: A Faedra Bennett Custodian Novel by Alison Pensy September 14, 2011

After this book I realized I’m not a big fan of fairies. Don’t get me wrong I adore the little, funky fairies, with great sense of humour and maybe too much confidence, but the full-sized ones…well not so much. I find them, kind of wrong. Don’t know why…:P

Anyways, this book was about Faedra, a Custodian of a fae amulet. When she turns 18 her powers are turned on and all bad things start to happen. She is being chased by uglie Redcaps, her dog turns into a handsome fairy and the worlds vegetation strats getting destroyed.

She soon has to travel to the fae realm to find out what is causing the world’s destruction and face the ones responsibles.

The book was, simply, boring until the time Faedra went to the fae realm, and that was half way through it. After that the story started to get better, but there were no major surprises and I could figure out some things that were left unsaid for the next book, which I will read in hopes of being like the second half of this one.

Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby August 20, 2011

Emma Jones is a 15 year old student of Burtonwood Academy, a training school for elemental creatures’ slayers, and she is supposed to be a dragon-slayer, just like her mother. But at the day of the designation she is apointed to FAIRIES! She decides that in the six weeks until this is final she is going to change her Principal dicesion, but with only ine week left she has no idea what to do. And this is not her biggest problem, a giant, invisble fairy starts to hang around the school and she is the only one who can see it. With the help of the friends and her archenemy, she will try to stop it, on the way discovering a lot of secrets about her past.

This book is hilarious! Emma was a kiss-butt heroine, headstrong, trying to have it her way. Very dragon slayer material!

The ones that I loved the most though where Trevor, Rupert and Gilbert the three tiny fairies at the mall. There were the most fun and annoying creatures in the whole world.

The story was fun and easy to read. The author gave a lot of hints as to what might happen and I figured it all, even guessed some parts and I was right, but it didn’t matter. It was awesome no matter what. Exactly what I needed, a lot of fun and not so much drama.

Perfect!
