BBAW 2012 Day Four – Pimp That Book

‘One of the best parts about book blogging is the exposure to books and authors you might never have heard of before. Pimp the book you think needs more recognition on this day. Get creative! Maybe share snippets from other bloggers who have reviewed it or make some fun art to get your message across.’

Now, although I think Fairyland is quite well known in the book bloggy world I went down to my local library the other day and the librarian had never heard of it. I absolutely loved Fairyland and I cannot bare the fact that people that would love it haven’t heard of it so these are some quotes from wonderful book bloggers that show just how brilliant this book is!

‘If you enjoyed books such as The Wizard of Oz, or The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, or even Harry Potter, then this should definitely be added to your wish list right now! It is a beautifully presented book, with gorgeous illustrations, and it certainly deserves a prominent place on any book collector’s bookcase. ‘ from http://bookmonkeyscribbles.wordpress.com/

‘This is fantasy fiction at its best, and I hope it’s a big hit over here in
England. I know it’s gone down a storm in the US, so let’s hope it gets the
recognition it deserves over here too. Add this one to your wish lists
immediately!’ from http://www.wondrousreads.com/

‘I feel like I could go on and on talking about the beauty and flow of the words and uniqueness of it all, but I think you get it.  So all I will leave you with is this:  This is a fabulous book and you really should give it a try!’ from http://www.candacesbookblog.com/

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it inspires you to pick up Fairyland if you haven’t already!

Happy Reading!

  1. I nearly wrote about this today as well but was dissuaded by the fact that lots of bloggers have heard of it. It’s such a great book though and people should definitely read it!!

  2. It’s funny how we think certain books are popular because we bloggers see them on all the blogs but out in the world no one has heard of them! It always takes me by surprise.

  3. I just picked your blog at random from the BBAW Day #4 links, and such a coincidence! I picked this book up at the last library used book sale. Haven’t started it yet, but definitely will soon.

  4. This one is new to me. I love fairy tales and any book that vaguely resembles one so this sounds like something I really need to pick up. Thanks for pimping it!
