I am thoroughly enjoying these book posts! Hope you don't mind I'm still on a magical kick. I just love a bit of magic! What can I say… it's easier to get in books. Also, the covers tend to be so much prettier than those of regular novels.
Wanting: the Folk Keeper by Franny BillingsleyApart from the fact that -yes, here we go again- this has a most stunning illustration on the cover, I am dying to read this story! I think I'll just go ahead and order it. It's a coming of age story of a girl with magical abilities that has to dress up as a boy in order to work as a folk keeper. There should be magical creatures involved too!
Reading: the Tree Shepherd's Saughter by Gillian Summers
This started out a bit annoying as the main character can whine quite a bit, however, I persevered and within a few pages found myself carried off to the fantasy fair where Keelie is now forced to live with her father because her down-to-earth Californian mother has passed away. It's magical and intriguing, and great so far!
Waiting: Theodosia and the Staff of Osiris by R.L. LaFevers
One of the reasons I haven't started this book yet, is because it's the second in a series of four. Do I think that this really matters when following the story? No. It's a brand new Theodosia mystery and probably doesn't need any explaining of the past. Anyway, stunning hardcover! I got it super cheap and it's still low price today...
