I am excited to be a part of the conversation at #IMWAYR! Thank you to Sheila, Jen and Kellee for inspiring and hosting this meme.
It's been an excellent week of reading!

I mentioned last week how enamored I was mid-way through The Twistrose Key. I devoured it as quickly as I could, and yet it still felt like a long and luxurious read, as Tone Almhjell's magical world of Sylver is completely absorbing. This book reads like a beautiful blend of Narnia, the Golden Compass and Redwall. Lin, lonely and missing her best friend, is given a key that opens the world of Sylver, a land where animals who have been loved by children go when they die. She reunites with her beloved pet vole Rufus and together they must save Sylver from the forces of evil. This is a gorgeous, rich, deep and dark fantasy!
