Joanne Harris is rapidly becoming one of my favourite authors. Pocketful of Crows was a standout read from last year, and The Blue Salt Road is just as good. I really appreciate retellings of lesser known fairy tales and folklore, and the Child Ballads fit the bill perfectly. Harris’s haunting style and talent for storytelling bring The Blue Salt Road to life.
It is Bank Holiday Eve, you guys! Although we are guaranteed to not have nice weather here in the UK, I’m still looking forward to three days of books, doggies, and family. Scottish Fiance and I are off to my parents’ house and I seriously cannot wait. Is it 5pm yet?
