By Genevieve Sing Yue Ling (GIS student)

Title: Fairy Tail (Books 1 & 2 – Manga)

The great thing about this book is that there is a girl who also wants to be a wizard and join a famous guild called ‘Fairy Tail’. Then she encounters a male with a blue cat. They go onto extreme adventures with each other and have lots of fun. The girl is a Celestial Wizard and can summon spirits from each zodiac and a few extras. I really hope that you will enjoy the book! But make sure to read Book 1 first so you get a chance to understand the characters.
