Last night I finished reading Land of Stories: Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer. It took me about a full month to complete because of work, grad school, and house things, but I am so glad that I persevered through this one. It was so magical, transporting me into another world, something that I’ve needed what with the current state of affairs. Although the book is 438 pages, it flew by (I ultimately read 1/2 of the book this past weekend). It wasn’t that involved, although the book magically intertwines nearly every fairy tale. Although I wouldn’t say Land of Stories is particularly challenging, it is just what this teacher needed to kick start her Thanksgiving Break.
I would strongly recommend Land of Stories: Wishing Spell to any lover of fairy tales or fantasy. If you enjoy a good adventure, complete with romance, friendship, and sibling rivalry, this is the book for you. I cannot wait to share this book with my 6th graders. They will love it!
Next on my list: The Secret Life of Bees. Happy reading!
