Stardust by Neil Gaiman
I really enjoyed this book. I've read fantasy-type books before but never one with true fairies. I thought, going into it, that I wasn't really going to like it. What intrigued me most were the trailers for the movie. Nevertheless, Stardust has earned a treasured spot on my bookshelf and will more than likely be dusted off to be read again sometime.
Stardust was truly a lovely book. Gaiman can weave a fantastical world full of fairies and make you believe that it could have existed once upon a time. He also has the ability to bring you into the story and make you care about the characters' fates.
I've also read American Gods by Gaiman but Stardust was a much lighter and easier read. I totally recommend it to anyone looking to lose themselves in a fairy world.
