I really enjoyed this one - it’s a fairytale, it’s very very lyrical, but at the same time it surprises you with bursts of dry humour. The length and pacing is perfect, too - it’s a fairly short book, but it carries its length well.

Further Reading

Stardust is similar romantic-realistic Fantasy, though it follows of a more conventional arc. If you liked the lyrical language and the brutal humour, and don’t mind reading a bit of sci-fi, This is how you lose the time war would be a good fit.
