I‘m working from my aunt/godmother‘s house today in Michigan before we visit my cousin who‘s off at college. She delivered this freshly baked cookie to me and now working remotely at my own home has been ruined for me.

This was a great book. Fun, witty, and a different look at fairy godmothers. I love fairy tale retellings, but this was something new. If you ever wondered who was behind the fairy godmother and how she got her job, this book will answer the question. Thank you Mercedes Lackey for making such fun and romantic adventures.

Having a terribly unproductive reading month so I'm spending my Sunday with a favorite #comfortread while my son brings me flowers 🤗. What are your favorite relaxing reads?

The first in the Five Hundred Kingdoms series was as much fun as I remembered. There‘s a lot of worldbuilding, but it‘s done relatively subtly. And Elena was a great character to watch grow.

1. The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey is possibly my most relaxing comfort read though I do have many others.
2. Spaghetti
3. The Good Place
4. Snag a screenshot if you see it on your feed like I did ;). Love questionnaires, can never remember to check who did them already.

All right folks, I need #recommendations. I've been underwhelmed by a lot of the stuff I've read or started lately and think I just need something light, fun, whatever time get me out of this funk. I have a nonfiction and audio going that are decent but I'd like a text fiction pick to unwind with after kids go to bed. #Romance, juvenile or #ya, lighter #Fantasy -- give me your recs! It's too soon to reread the tagged book already, usually my cure.

shelbyy I am reading I Capture the Castle right now and it‘s juvenile fiction, but it‘s light and fun! I am really enjoying it and would recommend it. It starts off a little slow for the first few chapters but then gets really fun 2y
jwashreads Have you ever read Darynda Jones? She has the Charley Davidson series and they crack me up. They're light, they're funny, there's romance,and the main character is a grim reaper. It's fantastic! 2y
8leagueboot I really enjoyed Karuna Riazi's middle-grade fantasy adventure "The Gauntlet". It has a very Jumanji feel, but with more whimsy! 2y
Kaylamburson For light and fun contemporary chick-lit, I loved The Hating Game. Takes place in the publishing world and two executive assistants fighting it out to reach the next level. 2y
parasolofdoom Thanks everyone! 2y

#12daysofchristmas day 3 - french hen. Ok this one was hard for me. Don't ask me why but my brain kept going hen -> little red hen -> fables/folk/fairy tales -> fairy godmother. So I'm picking Elena from this book.

As I keep saying, Mercedes Lackey is a guilty pleasure of mine. Not what I would call a spectacular writing, but warm and amusing nonetheless. The romance didn't make much sense, but I'm not complaining. I especially appreciate the great familiarity the author has with various fairy tales, including those not very well known in the West - finally someone outside of Russia gets the Hunchbacked Horse!

Mercedes Lackey is one of my guilty pleasures. And the lampshade-hanging trope-rich (and trope-enforced) fractured fairytales in this book are delightful
