Peter and the Starcatchers, by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Peter Pan was quintessential in my childhood. I watched the Disney cartoon so many times that I was Peter Pan for Halloween in kindergarten. When the 2003 live-action movie came out, the "I do believe in fairies!" sequence just pumped my sisters and me up. I'd heard that, of all the retellings and unofficial sequels … Continue reading Peter and the Starcatchers, by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

And since I began this series when I was fourteen, it’s been … Continue reading The Charmed Return (The Faerie Path #6), by Frewin Jones

I only remembered one thing about the second-to-last book in the Faerie Path series, The Enchanted Quest: the ending. Everything else was a total blur before this re-read. I can kind of, sort of see why. With the plague continuing to devastate Faerie, Tania has to make another quest: this time to the ends of … Continue reading The Enchanted Quest (The Faerie Path #5), by Frewin Jones
