Emily Wilde’s Encyclopedia of Faeries by Heather Fawcett
I try to make the first and last books of a year special ones, and I was really happy to have this one be the last one I finished in 2022. Emily Wilde’s Encyclopedia of Faeries is a wonderful lady-explorer adventure book (can we get that made an official genre?) which is one of my very favorite types of books. I love the journal format, the adventure, the mystery, the traveling to a faerie world, and we even get a little bit of packing details, which is another favorite thing of mine to have in a book. So I loved everything about this book… except for our main character, Emily. But I gave the book five stars so she doesn’t detract much. For me, she’s too out of touch socially and it makes her interactions with everyone she comes into contact with distracting and embarrassing. However, I still loved the book and can’t wait to read the next one.
I was given a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
