The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente

A book, like the first, full of wonderful language, description, and imagination; a mix of fairy tale, epic quest, reworked mythology and coming of age story. Great characters, hilarious and often moving dialog, and a constant sense of new things just around the corner.

The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti (Audiobook CD)

I will confess to mixed feelings about this one. The characters were really well done and the story was creative and had enough twists and turns to keep you reading. But I am not really a big fan of historical fiction and the mixing of styles was just a tad off for me. The gothic campiness wore thin at times even as the narrator did an excellent job of brining the characters to life.
