Book Review: Tilly and the Lost Fairytales by Anna James

Books aren’t interested in who is reading them… A book will welcome any reader

I loved Tilly and the Bookwanderers and was happy to see when Tilly and the Lost Fairytales came out. It just took me a little to get to it and it wasn’t a bad book, just not a great as the first book.

Book Review: Tilly and the Lost Fairytales by Anna James


Title & Author: Tilly and the Lost Fairytales by Anna James
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Release date: September 19 2019
Series: Pages & Co
Publisher: HarperCollins


Tilly Pages is a bookwanderer; she can travel inside books, and even talk to the characters she meets there. But Tilly’s powers are put to the test when fairytales start leaking book magic and causing havoc . . .

On a wintery visit to Paris, Tilly and her best friend Oskar bravely bookwander into the land of fairytales to find that characters are getting lost, stories are all mixed-up, and mysterious plot holes are opening without warning. Can Tilly work out who, or what, is behind the chaos so everyone gets their happily-ever-after?

I give Tilly and the Lost Fairytales by Anna James four out of five hearts because it wasn’t as good as the previous installment.

I still loved Tilly she was a great girl to go on an adventure with, but where she in the first book she was curious and surprised, she now felt a bit dumb every so often. It hit me hard and made me sad.

Oscar felt a bit useless during this book and together with Tilly they made lots of dumb decisions.

The story overall was great and I loved seeing the bookwanderers of other countries. I loved the different fairytales Anna has used for this novel and I am eager to read the next book.
