Alex and Conner Bailey’s world is about to change, in this fast-paced adventure that uniquely combines our modern day world with the enchanting realm of classic fairytales.
The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.
But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.
Why I’m Waiting: I’m kind of cheating with this WoW pick since I actually just got a copy (EEEEEEE!), but I’ve been planning to feature it and I still want to share it with everyone. Technically this is a children’s book, not young adult, but it sounds so fun and it was written by the amazing Chris Colfer who I am kind of in love with and who makes me feel like such a bum because he has accomplished so much in his life already, and I just want everybody to be SO EXCITED for this book. :D Fairy tales! Who hasn’t imagined getting sucked into a fairy tale world? I can’t wait to read this.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Share in the comments and I’ll come visit!
