Hey guys, I am soooooo sorry I’ve been absent for a while, my laptop has been away for a servicing etc. – I promise you that is not just an excuse- but I am back now, and have decided to put two reviews into one, since I’ve been away from blogging for a little while.
Maresi was a magical read. The words painted pictures in my mind of what was going on, and what the buildings of the Abbey look like in real-life, and Maresi’s character felt very similar to myself: fascinated by books, could read all day and night, and we’re both always asking questions, though the chapter layouts were a little confusing and odd for me, because they don’t have headings. However it didn’t…enthral me for long periods of time i.e. I didn’t read it for hours, maybe a few minutes, and then I’d put it down before picking it up again.
I loved The Girl of Ink & Stars so much! I could not put it down, didn’t want to put it down when I had to, I was so entranced, and enthralled by the story. It took me a day to read! If you love anything to do with maps, mystery, adventure, a bit of myth and magic, I think you’ll love it too.
There you are, two reviews instead of one today, to make up for my silence. Hopefully my next review won’t be too long after I finish my first re-read book.
Stay true to yourself. Don’t ever let anyone deter you from the path you want to take.
