Blog Tour: Nissa by Bethany Lopez

At 900 years old, Nissa is finally ready to follow her mother's path and become the best Fairy Godmother she can. She’s not thrilled when her first assignment turns out to be a teenage human girl with self-esteem issues, but she knows she has to start somewhere. Her assignment has dealt with bullies since her freshman year and they haven’t let up. If Nissa can’t help her regain her self-confidence her future is bleak.
To complicate matters Nissa experiences all the signs that she's met the being fated for her. This impossibility distracts her from her purpose. After all, fairies and humans aren't meant for each other. How can her heart believe otherwise? Can Nissa successfully complete her first assignment as a Fairy Godmother? Will the fates allow Nissa and Levi to be together? And even if they do, will Levi believe Nissa once she reveals the truth?
I love Bethany's contemporary books so I was interested in reading her contemporary fairy tale!

First Impressions!
I instantly loved Nissa and her world! I liked that it started out in a separate world as it really made it feel more like a fairy tale!

What I loved:
Nissa- I loved how relatable she was despite the fact she was a 900 year old fairy! It was so interesting seeing her adjusting to the human world, especially seeing how bullying confused her so much! I liked how she grew in to her first solo assignment more and more and became genuine friends with Vicky. Nissa was a strong clever lead character and I loved reading her!
Plot- I liked the plot! I loved how the Fairy Godmother program worked and functioned in the real world. I liked Nissa's assignment and Vicky. I loved the idea behind Nissa and Levi. The plot progressed well and flowed really easily.
Setting- I loved the fairy world, how it operated and how it co-existed with the human world.

What I didn't love:
Short- I always finish Bethany's books wishing they were longer! I would have loved more on Levi and Nissa's relationship because it all felt a bit rushed.
Ending- The ending was in a way perfect but I didn't love it. I don't want to spoil it so I can't say much about why. I think an epilogue would have made me love it more!
I loved the concept, the plot and I adored Nissa! It just needed to be longer!
