I don't know why I took so long to read the last book of the series really. I'd read the other four in order since the series started through the last few years, but I took my time picking up this one. Honestly, it's because I was sad it's the last one. I wanted to delay it. But I couldn't put it off any longer. I had to read it. It was such an emotional experience for me too knowing that it was the end of one of my favorites. Because of the timespan that I had given between reading the first four books and this one, I know that soon, I'll go back and re-read the entire series back to back. And I know I'll still love it as much as I did the first time I'd read it. There will be a full review coming soon on my blog...and sometime in the next few months, I plan to do a special fairy feature and challenge.
