The art in my book is gorgeous. This story is reminding me of stories my great grandmother told me.. I am enjoying it.

Loved the first book and even though I kind of forgot that I read the first this second installment can be read on its own!:) Ceres almost gives up on her daughter who is in a coma until she is taken into a world where the Fae and characters from all of our stories come to life. Loved this read.

TheLudicReader I need to get this. I also loved The Book of Lost Things. 11h

Renowned academic Dr Sparling seeks help with his project on a remote Irish village. Historical researchers Ben and Chloe are thrilled to be chosen – until they arrive. It seems a nameless fear stalks the streets, but nobody will talk – nobody except one little girl. Her words strike dread into the hearts of the newcomers. Three times you see him. Each night he comes closer...

At the hour, Marie is still queen of the gorgeous kingdom, where we see brilliant Christmas Forests everywhere, rivers of orangeade, orgeat, and attar of roses, diaphanous palaces of sugar finer than snow and more transparent than ice. And finally, all kinds of magnificent and miraculous things—provided your eyes are sharp enough to see them.

Book read to Henry - I‘m aiming to read books to him until he can read books himself.

The back of his neck was warm under her fingers as she pulled him into a kiss.
“Yes,” she said. “I‘ll stay. As long as you hold on to me. Yes.”

I wanted to like this more, as I really enjoy Christina Henry‘s books, but this just was a little slow and dull. It read slightly younger than its intended adult audience and had a writing style that struggled to keep my attention. It is short though so I did finish it. 2.5⭐️ Another #bookspinbingo and #roll100 done though!

PuddleJumper 💜❤️💜 Another book done! 3d
Clare-Dragonfly I felt similarly, though I liked it. So her other books are not quite as slow and young? Maybe I should give her another try. 3d
Nessavamusic @clare-dragonfly My favorite by her is this, which is a monster survival horror: (edited) 3d
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 3d

I just love Kingfisher‘s writing— she has such versatility and always creates great characters. This one feels like a new classic fairy tale! 14-year-old Cordelia has spent much of her life isolated and under the strict control of her rather wicked mother, Evangeline. When Evangeline must find a new suitor, she takes Cordelia along to a wealthy squire‘s home. Hester, instantly suspicious, fosters an unexpected friendship with Cordelia. Excellent!
