The Weekend Rec: The Fairy Godmother

Just in time for the weekend, have a book rec!

The Fairy Godmother
This week’s pick is The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey. Fans of light fantasy, cute romance, or fairy tales might enjoy this novel, the first in a loose series set in the Five Hundred Kingdoms verse, where magic tries to herd people into specific destinies and fairy godmothers are required to make sure there are happy endings. While this story is a sort of retelling of Cinderella, the plot veers sharply into original territory and follows our heroine, Ella, as she trains to become a fairy godmother. Although the romance is a bit light, and Ella’s love interest isn’t introduced until far into the story, it is cute, and watching Ella become a cool, confident godmother more than makes up for it.

Perfect for anyone who needs a story with a little magic and a happy ending.
