….The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne Valente!

One of the best YA books I have ever read, and it should be enjoyable for any adult lover of fantasy.  A clever take on the trip through fairyland, this is a YA book that made me break out the dictionary at one point.

At one time Valente could be considered underrated, but I doubt there are many who are not aware of her wonderful works at this point, the sequel even got a short article in Time Magazine.  Hopefully I will read and review the sequel very soon.
