To start my birthday month of fantasy and fun, I want to share a very special series. I fell hard into the Monster High phenom and was overjoyed when they announced the spin-off, Ever After High. I didn’t care for any of the Monster High novels or series, but I was very attracted to the Ever After High series. Those covers. The interior colors. The fact that the cover image is printed on the hardcover.
I was very happy with the story, but I wish it had continued past the third book since there were so many loose threads! The crossover that came out more recently was fun to read but didn’t address anything from the first series and lost some of the charm.
I actually met Shannon Hale and her husband Dean at one of the ALA conventions I went to, which is where I learned that, although uncredited, Dean helped write the second and third books. So I had him sign those in addition to Shannon for my collection. I love having these books on my shelves 🙂
That’s it for this post, but I’m excited for all the upcoming fantasy themed posts for Wyrd & Wonder that I have planned. Keep an eye out for more author signatures from my collection, book reviews, and lists of my favorite books. I might even host a giveaway 🙂
