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?
This book was so darn cute! It was a light read that kept me super entertained. I fell in love with it with the first page, and was sad to see it end. Fairy Bad Day is a must read, especially with it being summer – as it is the perfect beach read. It’s a feel good sort of book that will keep you smiling.
Fairy Bad Day was ultra refreshing. It was very unique from a lot of other paranormals out there. I absolutely loved the idea. I loved Ashby’s writing style. The story flowed so smoothly. The story had some elements of predictability, but there was so much I couldn’t guess for anything.
The characters personalities made the story that much more awesome. I loved Emma and Curtis. Their banter back and forth was absolutely hilarious, as was Loni’s constant discussion of horoscopes and Tyler’s betting. The other characters were great as well, but I just loved those four. The growth they made throughout the book was fun to read about, especially with Emma.
I cannot have enough words of praise for this book. It is an absolute joy of a read. This was my first Amanda Ashby book, but I will be sure to hunt down her others very shortly.
