The Land of Stories tells the tale of twins Alex and Conner. Through the mysterious powers of a cherished book of stories, they leave their world behind and find themselves in a foreign land full of wonder and magic where they come face-to-face with the fairy tale characters they grew up reading about.
But after a series of encounters with witches, wolves, goblins, and trolls alike, getting back home is going to be harder than they thought.

Reason for waiting:
I'm a bit of a sucker for fairy tale mash-ups (I blame Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu) and of course fairy tale re-tellings! This is also Chris Colfer's debut novel and I'm a big big fan of Glee. Kurt is my all time favorite character! I already have this one pre-ordered and I already have my tickets for the signing! This release is pretty exciting for me :P
