Book Review:

Title: The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two
Author: Cathrynne M. Valente

Language: English
Pages: 248

This is the third book in the Fairyland series. You can check out my review of the others here:
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making
The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led The Revels There

As this is a book in a series, this review might contain spoilers.

September misses Fairyland, and has no idea she's about to be whisked away to the Moon to save Fairyland once more.

I loooove the other books in the Fairyland series, and this book is no exception.

This has all those things that I've loved about the other books: they're imaginary, creative, weird and wonderful. This time, we get to go to the moon, which is a fascinating place, just as the rest of Fairyland. There's just so much to see, and I feel like I can't get enough! I swear to God, I almost lost it at the mention of taxicrabs.

This book feels a bit more chaotic than the other books, and deals a lot with September being fourteen and coming of age. This leaves me with the impression of having enjoyed it slightly less than the first two, but I cannot help but give it a full rating.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the strange and the beautiful.
