No point in waiting now that I‘ve already binged on parts one and two in the series... Jasper Fforde is all kinds of entertaining. #currentlyreading
“... a wellspelled feat of magic is the most wonrous thing to behold, like your favorite book, painting, music, and movie all at the same time, with chocolate and a meaningful hug from someone you love thrown in for good measure.”
Jasper Fforde has long been a favorite of mine. His quirky tales and wild imagination always leave me smiling at the end and wondering how his brain works. This is book 3 in this series about a gal who manages wizards and all the strangeness that accompanies that. This time there are sky pirates, a princess w/a head for economics, dragons, and a maybe quest. If you're looking for light-hearted fare then pick up any of Fforde's books for fun!
Some times you just need a little whimsy. I'm exhausted from worrying about my family and friends riding out the chaos after Hurricane Harvey. "The first thing we had to do was catch the Tralfamosaur." (Opening line).
The third book of the young adult series "The Chronicles of Kazam". I think the series is getting better with each book. Didn't see the end of this one coming, suspected something, but not this. Now I'm left longing for the next one - which will be published in late 2017 (!!!!). ?

"Shall I kill him?" said the princess after a pause. "My father insisted that I be trained in the art of silent assassination just in case."
"Just in case of what?"
"Lots of things," said the princess. "Doing away with a dopey royal husband in order to take over a kingdom, for one. It happens more than you think, believe me."
"Wouldn't going to marriage counseling be safer?"
