If you’re wondering whether you should read this book or not: you should.
Read the story now
If you opened it, saw how many pages there were and thought, “this is gonna drag,”: you’re wrong. It won’t. You should definitely read this book.
When you’re reading this book, because you will read this book if you have half a braincell, listen to the songs as they pop up. On repeat. Until the chapter ends. The author says it’s optional. It’s really not.
There are other books in this series, and another series with the same characters: read those too. Don’t question me, just do it. The first series is a little juvenile compared to this one, but it is still heartwarming, and reading all these books gives you the opportunity to watch the author grow as a writer, and that is almost as satisfying as the books themselves.
There are author’s notes. In the first few books, they’re kind of annoying, but they grow on you. And as they start growing on you, they decrease in frequency. Such is life.
Read the book. Read all this authors books. You won’t regret it (unless you’re reading into the early hours of the morning because you can’t put this shit down).
