    love the UK Fairy Tail. Why are there more bells and whistles with UK hardcover editions? Great adds.
    While not exactly what I was expecting I must say 'This Time Tomorrow" is a good read. I will warn it is not a fast-paced story, but it is well written. I will definitely be reading more from her.

    This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub
    I think I bought this last spring. I have wanted to read Emma Straub for a long time, and I read a blurb that this was a story about a person dealing with her father's illness and pending death. Knowing her father had been battling serious health issues I expected a very personal story.
    I did not get around to reading it until after Mr. Straub's passing. I will finish it tonight but here are my thoughts so far.
    I will start by adding that my thoughts are clearly skewed by my expectations.
    So, I was expecting a personal story about losing a loved one. The book started as just that but also started at a very slow pace. About a quarter of the way in I was really getting into the story, and it took an abrupt turn and became a time travel story that appeared to have nothing to do with the main premise. The change was really jarring and really pulled me out of the story. At about the halfway point I found that I was really into the time travel story but somewhat puzzled about how it would tie back to the original premise. Now about 40 pages from the end I can say that she has brought the story full circle and I expect to be very satisfied by the end. It has been a strange journey, but I must admit that Emma Straub can really tell a story.
    Note: At about the mid-point of the book I read the dust jacket liner notes and it clearly describes it as a time travel story.

    Fairy Tale by Stephen King
    This is the US and UK 1st editions:
    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I will add that this is not a horror story, and it is not a fast-paced story. It is a well written fairy tale.

    A user had reached out to Mindy. When asked about a partial refund due to the defects, she said that a partial refund would not be possible due to all copies having the defects, but the user would be able to return the book for a full refund.
    Got it, it was a response to a query rather than a statement from CD. I agree that it is a defect in the paper rather than a crease. And to be honest my disappointment has nothing to with a defect on one page, which is all I have.
