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.

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!
2017 editI 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. 2017 edit #2I 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 bear with me as I still continue to recover.
