After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

I Hate Fairyland, Vol 1: Madly Ever After by Skottie Young

I Hate Fairyland, Vol. 1: Madly Ever After by Skottie Young
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a portal fantasy like you've never seen before. Gert has always dreamed of being whisked away to Fairyland, but when her dream finally comes true, it is nothing like what she expected. Gert is sent on a quest to find the magical key to get her home, and 27 years later, she's still looking for that key. And while Gert appears to still be a 10 year old girl, she's actually aged thru those 27 years, and those years have not been kind to her. And she hasn't been kind to Fairyland.

Skottie Young completely turns the portal fantasy on its head, creating a subversive fantasy that is unlike any other portal fantasy that I've read before. I Hate Fairyland is laugh-out-loud funny, beautifully violent, and filled to brimming with Young's absurdly stunning visuals. This is a series that I'll be sure to keep following.
