Peter wakes up at a train station wearing pajamas and a tie. He has no memory other than his name is Peter. He quickly learns that he’s dead and this is the Afterlife. He is directed to his school. It’s like a boarding school. He makes new friends quickly. He also remembers a tiny snippet of his old life. There is a girl, and she’s in danger. It’s up to him to save her.

Fairytale has such a childish connotation, but bear with me on this. You don’t have to be an author of children’s books to get something from this post. I find that the best way to get better at something is to learn from the masters. I would love to sit down with any of these authors and learn all their secrets, but I doubt they would agree to meet with me.

This is a book review on the book Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab. This book is the sequel to City of Ghosts. It is set in Paris, France.
These are the best YA, Fantasy, and Science Fiction books I read during 2019.

My current read is Darker Shades of Magic, which is another book by V.E. Schwab. This one is a lot of fun too! So basically I’m a big fan of her!
