Wonderfully charming tale, a little cliche but overall really good.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Land of Stories, an Author's Odyssey, is my 2nd favorite book of the series. It was so hard to put down. I love the detail that Chris Colfer puts into his stories; I feel like I know the main characters, Conner and Alex. I wish I could walk into this story too. In my opinion, the Book Huggers should just leave Conner and Alex alone and mind their own business.👀.

P.S Worlds Collide is my favorite book in the series.🙂

Reading about fairy tales is my favourite thing to do. : )

The book is better than the audiobook. I wish the publisher would stop allowing the author to narrate this series. Colfer's accents are atrocious. I'd rather he just use his own voice and enunciate more. Note to Colfer: Dorothy is from Kansas. Kansas is in the Midwest, not the South. Her accent should be Midwestern, not Southern. Note to reader: skip the audiobook, but do pick up the book, which is a fun, funny homage to fairy tales. Book = 3 1/2 stars. Audiobook = 2 1/2 stars.

Ever since I read the first book I can’t stop dreaming about what it would be like if I could fall through a book and go visit Conner and Alex!

"If you notice the pages glowing, followed by an inviting humming noise, don't be afraid! That is just the book's magic. But whatever you do, don't lean too far into the book. You never know where you might end up."
