This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners . To participate, choose a random book from your TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then some thing interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
For this week’s pick I decided to go with the longest title. I thought this would be an easy one, but it actually got a little complicated. Like do I count sub titles, the part that comes after the main title, or do I just count the words in the main title? I decided to go with just the main title, but that still gave me a three way tie with nine words. So, I was just going to pick one of those, but then I had the idea to actually count how many letters were in the title and that gave me a clear winner with 39 letters.
An irresistible return to the captivating world of Elfhame.
Once upon a time, there was a boy with a wicked tongue.
Before he was a cruel prince or a wicked king, he was a faerie child with a heart of stone . #1 New York Times bestselling author, Holly Black reveals a deeper look into the dramatic life of Elfhame’s enigmatic high king, Cardan. This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan’s perspective.
This new installment in the Folk of the Air series is a return to the heart-racing romance, danger, humor, and drama that enchanted readers everywhere. Each chapter is paired with lavish and luminous full-color art, making this the perfect collector’s item to be enjoyed by both new audiences and old.
This comes out next month and I am super excited to get my hands on it. I love illustrated books and I can’t wait to see more of Cardan as a child and to see things from his point of view.
