Book of the Week

The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove and published by Penguin Random House South Africa: This book is the first in a trilogy and as Hood #1 looked at the cover he declared it “a keeper,” which is high praise for a book around here as some shuffling will have to occur for there to be a little more space on the bookshelf for it. It is one of those beautiful books that you need to read in real life rather than on the kindle, because it feels so good. The pages are somewhat rough on the edge and the paper has an unusual texture… the book feels out of time and old before it’s time… wonderful. This is a book filled with time traveling and history, mystery and adventure. In the world of mapmaking where continents have been shattered into different times by the Great Disruption… the world appears to be somewhat familiar to us, but not quite. The shattering of time leaves one restless. It is a great theme for a book as it allows all sorts of things to enter into the plot that wouldn’t be in a book with a more “regular” timeline. Our heroine, Sophie, like so many children in books, has lost her parents, and her uncle has raised her. He is kidnapped and she is on a long and challenging quest to find him. This is a great read for anyone who is not daunted by fat books, at close to five hundred pages, this is one of those books that will be enjoyed by anyone who is able to read and turn pages, because the reader will be turning a lot of pages and fast. This is compelling reading, to say the least. The book has it’s own website and you can take a look at it here.

The Glass Sentence was given to us for review purposes by Penguin books South Africa, we were not paid for this review and the opinions expressed are our own.

That’s us… Hope your weekend has been a fabulous one and we are so looking forward to another week of blogging with you all…

    Thank You Marcia, Oh my word… you forget how small they were!!! I really enjoyed her book it made a lot of sense to me, and found it very enabling in the “just letting stuff go” department… I am once again in full toss mode!!! It is life-changing, in a good way. I hope you had the best weekend ever and lots of lovely birthday-ness went on!!!
