The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow. This is such a good book. Love the exterior redness of the cover and the beautiful illustrations inside the book too. It was beautifully written. It's a magical, dark, and semi twisted fairytale. Reading about September's adventures was really fun. She got swept away into a messed up fairyland that wasn't as fun as she thought it would be. I really like September's character. She's a curious girl who's willing to speak her mind. It's always great to see her character developed later in the book too. Also her sidekicks A-through-L and Saturday were a very interesting bunch. They were mythical creatures with great personalities. There were crazy witches and the evil marquess that just made this story really fascinating. Overall, September's trials and tribulations and the twist toward the end really made this book so worth it to read.
