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!


  1. I've seen this one around but never heard much about it. Now that I've seen someone say good things about it, I'll add it to my TBR list. :)

  2. I have this one on my shelf! I just haven't read it yet. But I will! Eventually :) Thanks for participating Katie!

  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 :)

  4. I've heard about this one, but haven't read it yet. Sounds great! :)

  5. The book has 'godmother' in the title and you say 'classic fairytale' so I'm hooked!
