My Unfair Godmother

My Unfair Godmother by Janette Rallison A+

"Tansy Miller has always felt that her divorced father has never had enough time for her. But mistakenly getting caught on the wrong side of the law wasn't exactly how she wanted to get his attention. Enter Chrysanthemum "Chrissy" Everstar, Tansy's fairy in shining, er, high heels. Chrissy is only a fair godmother, of course, so Tansy's three wishes don't exactly go according to plan. And if bringing Robin Hood to the twenty-first century isn't bad enough for Tansy, being transported back to the Middle Ages to deal with Rumpelstiltskin certainly is. She'll need the help of her blended family, her wits, and especially the cute police chief 's son to stop the gold-spinning story from spinning wildly out of control. Janette Rallison pulls out all the stops in this fresh, fun-filled follow-up to the popular My Fair Godmother. "

I read the first of these books after my school had a visit from the author Janette Rallison, and I won a signed poster of this book cover. I really loved the first book and since I was like 25 in line at the library, I decided to by my own copy. I love this book! I'm so excited to say that her book are getting more adventures, cunning, and um...(Romantic) as they go. I'm pretty sure that there well be a sequel soon and I'll be waiting excitedly.
What made this books extra enjoyable for me was the humor, especially all the hilarious remarks to Twilight, so funny! Loved it!!!!

The Forgotten Locket

The Forgotten Locket by Lisa Mangum A+

( Warning, Might be a spoiler if you haven't read the first 2 books)

"The future is uncertain. The battle to control the past has begun. The final book in the riveting Hourglass Door trilogy begins when Abby steps through the black door, and she doesn't dare look back. Though it means leaving Dante—wounded, bleeding, and possibly blind—she knows it is the only way to save her family and stop Zo from manipulating the river of time and throwing the future into chaos. In the end, Abby must face a final confrontation that will take her to the very origins of the hourglass door. Praise for The Hourglass Door "
-Back of Book

I was so excited for this book to come out! I'm a huge fan of The Hourglass Door series and this was the last book of the trilogy. It was released on May 30th and I've been watching and waiting for it to be released. All my friends had no idea it was even out and I loved it because it meant no one was going to spoil it for me. I finished it the day I day I bought it and I still can't wrap my head around how crazy intense this book was! It was amazing and I think it must have taken Lisa Mangum quite awhile to layout such a mind blowing plot for her final book. Loved it!!!! If your a fan of her books then I'm sure you wont be disappointed with this!!!!
