Like the first book, MY VERY UNFAIRY TALE LIFE, this continuation is full of the same fun characters (plus new ones), the same quirky and perfect touches of humor, and the same playful tone. Jenny is the perfect character. She is strong and spunky and far from perfect. She faces her share of disappointments and failures and unexpected victories, while maintaining a good heart and unwavering determination. Her adventures are not only hilarious, but also full of life lessons and powerful friendships.

While written for a young adult audience, my 8 year old daughter has read and loved both books just as much as I do--after all, fairy tales are ageless! I also purchased copies of the first book for my niece and God-daughter, and they both LOVED it. I will be sending them copies of My Epic Fairy Tale Fail for sure. I highly recommend both books for readers of all ages.

3.5 Stars

'My Epic Fairy Tale Fail' is the second book in a fun young adult series that shows us that fairy tales may be true, but they are far from perfect. Our leading lady, Jenny the Adventurer, is back this time and off to the Land of Tales - the place where all the fairy tales in the world came from. All she needs to do when she gets there is defeat an evil witch and complete three impossible and crazy tasks, without getting eaten by monsters, of course. If she's able to do all these things, Jenny might finally get some answers about what happened to her parents. She really can't afford to fail this time. Will she be able to do what needs to be done to save her parents?

This is a really light and fun second installment in a fairy tale themed young adult series. Jenny is a great lead character - she has a great attitude and personality and also doesn't give up - even though all the odds are against her. The setting of the book was really fascinating and I loved reading about the Land of Tales. It was another great setting for the adventures that Jenny goes on and I hope the next book has another great place for us to visit. The writing was well done and fast paced, so it keeps the reader engaged in the story and eagerly turning the pages to see what will happen next. This is a wonderful story and a fun and easy read - highly recommended for younger readers and YA fans who like fantasy and fairy tales.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
