Fairy Tale Fail is the first Mina V. Esguerra book I’ve read and I instantly became a fan. This is one of my best reads for the first quarter of the year. And since I discovered her works, whenever I crave for a light read, Mina’s books are always on my top list.

Ellie Manuel is a believable character that most twenty-something working girls can easily relate to. I know every girl had once looked for Mr. Right and asked for a happy ever after. That is why we can understand what Ellie had gone through with. It was a little annoying that she still waits for that douche after what he did to her but if we put ourselves in Ellie’s shoes, well, I can’t blame her.
What I really like in this novel is Ellie’s development. Though it’s just a quick read, Mina showed her growth as an individual. I like the way Ellie rebuilt herself after the break up, she didn’t immediately venture into another relationship but instead she gradually developed her self-confidence. I’m not really into travelling but her extensive planning of trips made me want to try it too. I guess it would be fun if I go with my friends. I’m not as bold as Ellie to go out of the country alone.
Now let’s talk about Lucas. *Fan Girling Mode On* OMGeeee. I’m so in looooove with this guy. As I said in my MBB (My Book Boyfriend) post, Lucas is on top of my list of swoon-worthy guys. He is far from perfect but his imperfection made him endearing. All I can say is, Lucas is ♥. I have one post dedicated just for him so I guess that’s enough. 😀
If you’re looking for a sweet light read full of kilig scenes and charming, characters, Fairy Tale Fail is a good choice.
