Tales of the Month


Wow! I can't believe it's time for another Tales of the Month blog post. :o I haven't read a whole lot of books last month that I feel like talking about, so sorry if this post is a tad on the short side. 

A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull


You know what's funny? I read this book January of 2017 and I reread it again in December because I wanted to read the rest of the series. And I didn't remember a single thing about the book! XDD So it was almost like a new book for me. :P 

The book is about: Two kids who travel to another world, Lyrian. And at first all they want to do is get home, but that slowly changes when they realize how desperate the people of Lyrian are for a hero. An evil wizard named Maldor is in control of Lyrian and he is manipulative and a big fat meanie. No, he's not actually fat. He's just really mean. XD

I like the fantasy world in the book. The author definitely knows how to make up creative creatures and people. :D And I like the main character's quick thinking. XD   


The Story Thieves by James Riley


This book is awesome!!! The main characters are the cutest. ^.^

The book is about: Owen, a boy who is very bored with his life. And all he wants to do is read his favorite series about Kiel Gnomenfoot. And one day Owen finds out that one of his classmates is half-fictional. Which means that she can travel in and out of books! :O And so Owen convinces the half-fictional girl named Bethany to take him into his favorite book. And crazy adventures ensue after that. XD

I love this book so much. I hope my library gets the other four books in the series soon! If they don't, I'm going to have to sue them until they do!!! Wahaha!!! I'm so evil!!!!! Not.  XD The Story Thieves is hilarious, I was almost laughing on every page. :P

Everland by Wendy Spindale


Yesh, I know I mentioned this book before, but I had to mention it again because it's so good. XD And it's Peter Pan!!! XD 

If you want to read a more detailed review of  what I think of Everland click here!  

Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King by William Joyce and Laura Geringer (Could this title get any longer? XD)


I have so many fond memories of my dad reading some books in this series to me and my sister and my mom. ^.^ This book feels a bit like a classic to me. And the beautifully drawn pictures just add to that feeling. 

The book is about: The book is about a magical village called Santoff Claussen, where anything is possible if you believe. Nicholas St. North (you would sooner know him as Santa Claus) comes to the village and meets the wizard that lives there and befriends a young orphan. And many adventures are had as they try to stop the Nightmare King and his Fearlings.  

You probably have heard of the movie Rise of the Guardians, right? This series is connected to that movie! Seriously! The author, William Joyce, is the director of the movie. XD But this series takes place long before the Rise of the Guradians, which is pretty cool because you get to learn the backstories of some characters. :D

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed seeing what I have read in the past month!
