Silver in the Blood

I wasn't particularly a fan of Jessica Day George at any point, but I have read two of her trilogies (Twelve Dancing Princesses and Dragon Slippers), which were great fun, as well as having enjoyed some of the Castle Glower Series' books, until I outgrew them.

The Splintered Trilogy

I was caught by the covers of these books when I was waltzing through the bookstore (not literally, but I like fun words). I didn’t want to judge a book by its cover and I read the first synopsis, which really excited me because I love Alice in Wonderland themed/inspired stories.

I was scared by some of the frightening situations and creatures the characters had to deal with and Mum was afraid of me having nightmares. So we got rid of the book. Many years later, I saw the book at the bookstore and I thought maybe I should try it again. I wasn’t disappointed...
