After @DeborahSmall recommended this, I was lucky enough to find a signed copy for 99p on eBay!
Books I #lovetorecommend I, Coriander is a favourite YA I love recommending. I love Eva Luna from Allende, I've been reading The Prince of Tides for almost 25 years (since I was 15) and I'm always gifting it. Most recently my favourite read has been Natchez Burning and The Bone Tree, I'm so excited for the release of Mississippi Blood in April. I've recommended NB to anyone I know that reads. I know the series will always stay with me. 💕
Part 1 of 2 of my #collingswoodbookfestival haul. There was a tent with a deal of 5 books for $1, so I grabbed a bunch for my classroom library. Aside from "The Sweet Far Thing" (Don't worry, I have "A Great and Terrible Beauty" already. Need the third one, though) and "Crispin", I haven't read these. Littens, please tell me about these books before I unleash them on the children!
Ever since I was about eight years old, the beautifully eerie atmosphere of this twisted tale has equally enchanted and terrified me. The plot blends religion, fantasy and history through the the eyes of a child in a way that raises different questions at every stage of life in which you revisit it, and I know it is a book I will keep with me always
