We’ve picked a book.
And I think you’re going to like it.
It won by a long shot.
And the winner is…
I’ve been told by many people that this is a fantastic story gorgeously written. So if you’re on the fence, I’d say read it. If you don’t know what it’s about, here’s the description:
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
We’ll be discussing the book on Friday, October 28. If you have a blog, post your thoughts on the book there then leave a link to your blog on my post. If you don’t have a blog, leave your thoughts in the comments here and on other members’ blogs, which you can easily get to by clicking the links on my post.
Stay tuned, because I might post some questions to guide the discussion once I read the book.
So, who’s in? Let me know if you’ll be joining this month’s book club in the comments.
