    Robin McKinley was the one who started my lifelong love of fantasy novels, I'm sure. I remember wanting to cry after finishing the Blue Sword in elementary school. I was both sad and happy, and it'd just been SO REAL!

    That edition of Rose Daughter is BEAUTIFUL! Might I ask where/how you obtained such a treasure?

  4. Emily, I know what you mean. Somehow her versions of fairy tales feel incredibly real to me, too.

    And I discovered the book when I was browsing editions of ROSE DAUGHTER on Amazon a couple years ago. I clicked on this mysterious illustrated edition. You can also purchase it through the gallery's website itself here. Same price either place. My mother-in-law actually surprised me with it for my birthday. It ain't cheap, but it's even more beautiful in person than you can imagine. :)

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo
