If you don’t like pixies, don’t read this diary.
If you don’t like loud-mouthed pixies who are really cool but sometimes get told they’re immature (for no reason), then definitely stop reading.
Oh, and if you’re His Awfulness The Elf Prince ‘Dare’ Darius, then you can kiss my butt. My hatred for you burns with the fire of a thousand suns. Thanks for getting me kicked out of Pixieland and exiled to attend some rando human high school on Earth. You’re the worst, even if you have a cute smile. And nice eyes. Your hair looks okay sometimes, too. But you’re still a creep and I loathe you.
And to everyone else: if you’ve read this far, then you better finish my entire diary.
My story is supernatural, whacked-out, and overall awesome.

My Rating: 4 stars
Pixieland Diaries begins a charming, sassy series told in a “diary-style” of writing. While I’m not a huge reader of Fantasy or YA, there was something about the combination of that cover and the description that kept drawing me back time and time again. Perhaps a bit of pixie magic at work, who knows, but I had fun with Calla’s story and that really is the point of any story I read.
Calla is a faeling, a pixie born to human parents who ends up in the pixie realm with a very interesting young life. She’s got a heart of gold hidden behind sarcasm, pranks, and definitely sass, lots and lots of sass. She’s not really good at evilness, but she is a prank queen in the making. So much so that her antics get her kicked out of her home and on a quest to find her real parents, get revenge on Dare, and perhaps do some growing up and into her powers along the way.
But… I think Calla should tell you the rest in her own words.
As I said, I had fun with Calla’s story. There are definitely laugh out loud moments and lots of knowing smiles as well. I liked this little pixie and would follow this series as it is released. If you’re not a fan of or haven’t read anything in the diary-style then it might take a bit of getting used to at first, but hang in there for this is a lively, entertaining tale you won’t want to miss.
