Your Mood: Wishing something interesting would happen

Fragile Things, by Neil Gaiman

If you’ve ever spent even a second wondering why you never received your Hogwarts letter, or you were super pumped for the arrival of the next season of Sherlock, then yes. This is the one. It’s dreams and nightmares and magic and reimaginings of your favorite stories, like The Matrix and The Chronicles of Narnia.

It’s a must-have if you love Gaiman.
