Recommend A: Book With 3 Words In The Title


Recommend A ... is a feature created and hosted by Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit. It's a new, clever way to recommend books. You can read more about the feature here. I'll be doing it every Monday because - as you've all heard me whine and moan about lately - I don't really have tons of time to blog and this feature is both brilliant and quick.

A book with three words in the title ...

My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

Finding your one true love can be a Grimm experience! After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah Delano wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom. Enter Chrissy (Chrysanthemum) Everstar: Savannah’s gum-chewing, cell phone–carrying, high heel-wearing Fair Godmother. Showing why she’s only Fair—because she’s not a very good fairy student—Chrissy mistakenly sends Savannah back in time to the Middle Ages, first as Cinderella, then as Snow White. Finally she sends Tristan, a boy in Savannah’s class, back instead to turn him into her prom-worthy prince. When Savannah returns to the Middle Ages to save Tristan, they must team up to defeat a troll, a dragon, and the mysterious and undeniably sexy Black Knight. Laughs abound in this clever fairy tale twist from a master of romantic comedy.

This book - and it's companion, My Unfair Godmother - are extremely underrated. And I don't understand why. Is it the cover? Is it too girly? I don't know but what I do know is that you all MUST read this book. This is one of the funniest, action-packed, romantic and just generally enjoyable novels I've ever read. And Janette Rallison has proved herself the best at twisting our classic fairytales! I could gush about how much I love this book for days but just take my word for it and check it out yourself!

  3. It's probably the cover because I don't think I'd pick it up by looking at it. It sounds fun and I am now interested in checking it out :)
