Waiting On 'Wednesday', February 19

It's not Wednesday anymore. But that doesn't change the fact that I'm really looking forward to Justine Larbalestier's How To Ditch Your Fairy. All you overseas people may scoff at me, but sadly How To Ditch Your Fairy hasn't even been released in Australia yet. So unfair!

From Amazon

Welcome to New Avalon, where everyone has a personal fairy. Though invisible to the naked eye, a personal fairy, like a specialized good luck charm, is vital to success. And in the case of the students at New Avalon Sports High, it might just determine whether you make the team, pass a class, or find that perfect outfit. But for 14-year-old Charlie, having a Parking Fairy is worse than having nothing at all—especially when the school bully carts her around like his own personal parking pass. Enter: The Plan. At first, teaming up with arch-enemy Fiorenza (who has an All-The-Boys-Like-You Fairy) seems like a great idea. But when Charlie unexpectedly gets her heart’s desire, it isn’t at all what she thought it would be like, and she’ll have resort to extraordinary measures to ditch her fairy. The question is: will Charlie herself survive the fairy ditching experiment? From the author of the acclaimed Magic or Madness trilogy, this is a delightful story of fairies, friendships, and figuring out how to make your own magic.

Hope everyone has a good 'Wednesday'. And by 'Wednesday' I mean Thursday :)


  1. What?? That is STRANGE! Isn't Justine Larbalestier an Aussie writer?

  3. She is an Aussie writer but for some crazy reason that doesn't seem to matter!

  4. Ooo this sounds interesting! Plus I've always loved the name Charlie for a girl.

  5. Annoying how it hasn't been released in Australia--I agree with Steph! I have this on my shelf and can't wait to start, it looks super-cute! (:

  6. Looks like such a good book. The cover is so cool.
