From Goodreads:
While most students at Burtonwood Academy get to kill demons and goblins, fifteen-year-old Emma gets to rid the world of little annoying fairies with glittery wings and a hipster fashion sense. She was destined to be a dragon slayer, but cute and charming Curtis stole her spot. Then she sees a giant killer fairy – and it’s invisible to everyone but her! If Emma has any chance of stopping this evil fairy, she’s going to need help. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Curtis. And now, not only has he stolen her dragon-slayer spot, but maybe her heart as well! Why does she think it’s going to be a fairy bad day?

My Review:
Fairy Bad Day is a cute, light-hearted read that enchanted me! I have been reading some pretty heavy books lately, so I was relieved to read something cute and sweet. I will definitely pick up Ashby’s future novels.

Emma is a spunky, ambitious, and determined girl who is so not happy with her slayer designation. Fairies are a joke! They are small, annoying, and enjoy pestering Emma. She wanted so badly to be a dragon slayer so she could follow in her foot steps. She has helped her mother slay and knows she is capable enough to do it! Why does Curtis have to get dragons? Emma is determined to show that she deserves to slay dragons. And then the situation gets worse when Emma starts to see something that no one else can see. Emma has to find out what this thing is, what it wants, and how to convince those above her that there is something weird going on.

And then there is Curtis. He is so sweet, adorable, and lovable! Emma has a bit of an attitude towards Curtis at first, for obvious reasons, and he deals with it wonderfully. He doesn’t lash out at her, and understands why she feels the way she does. Emma’s friends are just as entertaining. Loni is hilarious. She is obsessed with star signs and revolves her life around them. Tyler is a very interesting guy. He and Loni are always bickering with each other, but in a good way… Loni, Tyler, and Curtis all aid Emma in her investigating, where they all make crazy and unbelievable discoveries (not really unbelievable to readers but to them it was icon wink Review: Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby ).

While I really loved Fairy Bad Day, it wasn’t the best book I have ever read. It was nice to read something not so heavy, though. Give this one a try if you want something light and fun!

  1. I haven't came across this book before, but it sounds awesome. Thanks for the lovely review! (:

  2. Lily Child says:

    Yay! I just finished and reviewed this book myself. I agree…it's a lighthearted, fun read. I really want to pick up her last book, Zombie Queen of Newbury High. It sounds just as fun! :)

  3. I agree Bailey, this one was just fun and cute and a perfect break from some of the darker, emotionally gripping reads. I like having those "breather" books that give you time to get your bearings before jumping to the next heavy read!

  4. Lauren M says:

    Haha, the concept of this book makes me laugh. We all need those light and fluffy books once in a while! Great review. :)

  5. I really liked Ashby's debut novel Zombie Queen because of it's light-heartedness and this one seems like no exception. I'll definitely going to be picking it up. Thanks for the great review!
