What Are Your #BookishWISHES ? (Giveaway!)

11 Feb 2015

In the excitement for the release of The Darkest Part Of The Forest by Holly Black, Indigo Books have been encouraging bloggers to share their bookish wishes. I have a few, wid

My first wish is for greater diversity in books published over the next few years. In terms of both genre and characters (think ethnicity, religion, sexual identity and orientation etc.)

My second wish is for more retellings of less well known fairy tales.

My third wish is more personal - and maybe a little selfish! - and is that I wish to get an awesome entry level job in publishing once I graduate in August.

I love fairy tales and so today I am going to play at being a fairy godmother and bestow someone with a copy of The Darkest Part Of The Forest. However I cant decide who to play fairy godmother for! So what I want is for you to let me know why you would like me as your fairy godmother and I will pick my favourite (or at random if I cannot decide) to receive a copy of this book. Alternatively you can say why someone else deserves a fairy godmother and I will send THEM a copy.

Either let me know in a comment here or tweet using both @loopy_lu_ and #bookishWISHES . You can just have a short explanation or do something fancy like a video and share the link with me.

Now before you run off to try and win the book, here is a little more information about it.


Synopsis

Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.

At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.

Until one day, he does…

As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

  1. I too wish for more diversity in books in the coming years. And, yeah, everyone deserves a fairy godmother to sprinkle some happiness into their lives. God knows this world could use a handful! Throw in some guardian angels (I'll take Raffe from Penryn and The End of Days, thank you very much) and I'd be good to go!
