Hello Fairy Friends! And, welcome back!
Our June Readalong starts on Monday! We’re reading ‘Sorcery of Thorns‘ by Margaret Rogerson, which is our book of the month for June.
‘Sorcery of Thorns‘ follows Elisabeth, an apprentice librarian, who has lived in a library her whole life, surrounded by magical and dangerous grimoires. When one escapes and Elisabeth is blamed for the crime, she is sent away from her home and ends up on a quest to prove her innocence and find the real culprit. She must lean on her sworn enemy, Nathaniel Thorn, for help to try and stop the saboteur before they strike again.
I’m Amy, your host for this readalong, and I’m so excited to be hosting for the first time! This book sounds like the perfect one to start with! It’s definitely going to very exciting! If you’ve participated with us before, you know the drill! But if you’re new, welcome!
