Today, I have decided to feature a book I really enjoyed but never talked about on the blog: In the Shadows by Kiersten White & Jim di Bartolo.
I did give it a shout-out in my end of year book survey for 2014. Here’s what I said about it:
If you had told me that I would like a book that was half-traditional prose/half-wordless graphic novel and included weird magic stuff, I would have never believed it.
That is still true! On paper, it is not at all the type of book I would typically read (and it was NOT my choice–my summer book club chose it) or even be remotely interested in.
However, at its core, the book is about sisters and family and loyalty and complicated relationships, and that right there is all stuff I dig.
So, anyway, this book that was very much not a me book wound up being a me book. You should check it out. You might dig it.
For the A to Z challenge, I’m blogging about fannish pursuits (aka things I’m a fan of or have strong feelings about). Tune in tomorrow to see what I picked for J!
