I Won 'The Land of Stories' Book (ARC), Autographed by Chris Colfer

Last month, I entered a contest on Hypable to win an autographed ARC (Advance Reading Copy) of The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell, by Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on Glee. And I ended up winning! This signed ARC was delivered to my house the other day, and it also came with a Land of Stories tote bag.

Check out a photo of the book and bag below:

If you want to know what this fantasy children's novel is all about, here's the synopsis (courtesy of Little, Brown) from the back cover:

Alex and Conner Bailey's world is about to change.

When the twins' grandmother gives them a treasured fairy-tale book, they have no idea they're about to enter a land beyond all imagining: the Land of Stories, where fairy tales are real.

But as Alex and Conner soon discover, the stories they know so well haven't ended in this magical land--Goldilocks is now a wanted fugitive, Red Riding Hood has her own kingdom, and Queen Cinderella is about to become a mother!

The twins know they must get back home somehow. But with the legendary Evil Queen hot on their trail, will they ever find the way?

The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell brings readers on a thrilling quest filled with magic spells, laugh-out-loud humor, and page-turning adventure.

There's about a month until J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy is released, and I've been wanting to find a book to read to bide my time until that one comes out. And I was originally going to at least start reading A Game of Thrones, but that's taking forever to come in at the library so instead I'm putting that off for a later time and instead will start reading Chris Colfer's The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell some time this week, and I can't wait!

Big thanks to the team at Hypable for holding the contest, for replying to my e-mails and for sending the book and tote bag.
