Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Magical Mystery

Queen Clarion's Secret - Kimberly Morris
This is the 16th book in the Tales of Pixie Hollow Series but it is the first book in which the character on the cover, and title, is not from their point of view. It is in the point of view of Prilla who notices that the Queen and the precious magical heart seed is missing.

 

As always the images are beautifully drawn.  The story is sweet.  I am a fan of Prilla the clumsy (their word for humans) fairy.  Prilla runs into Lily and Beck.  Beck is a animal fairy who can talk to all animals and talking to frogs is a hoot!

 

I was hoping this was a story featuring the Queen as the main character but sometimes you can not have everything.  We get to hear little about Mother Dove which makes up a little for the lack in Queen Clarion’s story.

 

I love the Disney Fairies movies but I the books I enjoy more because there are more fairies and other characters then the movies.  My wish is that the books continue to be on bookstore shelves for a long time to always enjoy.
