A good week for reading! And all I can say is what took me so long?!
I’ve had Juliet Marillier’s “Daughter of the Forest” sitting in my TBR pile forever. And I mean seriously forever. But I never actually got around to reading it because… eh, I don’t know. Because it was based around Celtic myths. Because it looked too thick. Because it had a green cover. Ummm… not really.
Then Angie wrote a glowing review about the fourth book in the series. I rooted around in my TBR pile and moved “Daughter of the Forest” to the pile on my bedside table. Then Thea joined the general clamour of praise. I moved it to the top of the bedside pile.
And last night, I picked it up, thinking a couple of chapters… I ended up staying up much much later than I had planned.
I’m around halfway through and loving it. It’s such an absorbing world and so beautifully written. The only thing is… it had better end on an uplifting note (because I so don’t need tragedy after spending the week seeing redundancy headlines everywhere) and also not on a cliffhanger (because I don’t have the second book!).
