Review: My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

Book: My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison

Genre: YA Fantasy

Rating: A

For: a bit for fun and a bit for my F2F book group

Finally. I finished a book! For book club this past week, we discussed Janette Rallison's books. Everyone just picked whichever one they could find (and that wasn't easy as they're scarce at the library) and we talked about what we found, read and though. The general consensus, we love them! This books are the best for simple, fun, light and happy.

One of my book club buddies left me with two that I hadn't read yet, two of the newest ones. The first one I picked up and read nearly instantly was My Fair Godmother.

What a fun romp through several fairy tales this was! It's about Savannah, who gets quite depressed that her sister steals her boyfriend away. One night, her quite incompetent fairy... or fair we should say... godmother shows up in her room to grant her three wishes. Off handedly, without thinking, Savannah wishes that a prince would fall in love with her and whisk her off to a ball!

Well, things go down from there.

Much mixing up of wishes, and words and people begin to happen non-stop. Savannah ends up with an amazing mess to fix. And in the fixing, things just keep getting worse.

What a fun ride this was. I loved yet another fun book that twists several fairy tales all up into one. I loved how the plot ended up being quite complex (even though I just said these are simple books!) and kept me guessing how things might turn out.

I would list this as one of my favorite Janette Rallison books so far, but I'm told that the one I have to read next (Just One Wish) is even better.

Other Reviews:


  1. I've heard good things about Rallison's books, but haven't yet read anything by her. This one sounds fun too! After some of the dark/deep stuff I've read lately, this might be just the ticket for me. :) Thanks for the nice review.

  2. This sounds fun! I added it to the wish list. :)

  3. This sounds like such a fun read. I will see if my library has a copy -- thanks for the recommendation.

  4. Glad you liked this one; I bet you really like Just One Wish, too.

    I should read some of her earlier stuff... what would you recommend?
