Camp NaNoWriMo Prep

Camp NaNoWriMo Prep

Mini-Review: Jackaby was a Fun Read, but Nothing Special

Mini-Review: Jackaby was a Fun Read, but Nothing Special

Ok, so I really enjoyed this book, and it was a pleasant break from the mind-blowing, book-hangover-inducing awesomeness that I’ve been reading a lot of lately, so there’s that. That said, there’s nothing super stand-out-ish about it. As a result, I don’t have a lot to say, so I’m just doing a mini-review! What I liked: […]

These Books Will Draw You In, Chew You Up, and Spit You Back Out

These Books Will Draw You In, Chew You Up, and Spit You Back Out

The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca Finnegan was an Interesting Little Read

The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca Finnegan was an Interesting Little Read

Review I admit I had NO IDEA what to expect when I picked up this book. It’s an interesting concept. The basic premise is that Richard is the Vice President of Something, and he’s miserable. And through a chance of fate, he’s reminded of some of his childhood adventures with Francesca Finnegan and the L […]

Six Types of Retellings You Should Totally Care About [Elements of Fantasy]

Six Types of Retellings You Should Totally Care About [Elements of Fantasy]

Elements of Fantasy is a feature I host here at FaerieFits. Periodically, there’s a book that puts the spotlight on a particularly interesting element of fantasy, and I like to explore it more in-depth. Sometimes I’ll pull on some history, other times I’ll explore variations on a similar theme. These will all be different! I […]
