I was bored and had no books to read and on my schools chatting page, people recommended the land of stories, so I tried the first book and read it in 3 days! It was all I could talk about...I got the second book and read it n 3 days, then the third book in 3 days, and then I red the fourth book in 2 days!!! I cant wait to read this on now!!! and thanks @MARKHAMONTAIRIO for the notification of when the sixth book will come out.

Okay, everyone you gotta read this. Ok, I placed a hold on book 5 of the Land of Stories Series and I knew that my copy of the book was close to being shipped. Then, today ùi started to read the book and then my own copy of the book came. I know hilarious right
and this is to Frostbyte140: book 6 is coming out on July 11.

Hmm, I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It's been a while since I read any of the others, and the writing style dragged and felt awkward. There was also quite an overuse of italics (twice in one sentence at least a few times!) I didn't really enjoy it, I guess. Nothing is terribly wrong with the book, it just isn't very interesting. The premise was good, but the execution could have been significantly better. (My personal opinion only; no offense to the author or fans or this book.)

I can't wait until the next book comes out! Hurry up and write the story!! This book was GREAT. Best book series I have ever read. I just can't believe someone would end a book like that! I need details about when the next one comes out STAT. I am literally dying from the pain of waiting. I NEED IT. Like my comment if you agree;)
