new book: the goose girl

i was kind of hesitant about it, even though i heard it was a good read, because i've read a couple of other shannon hale books and i find them sometimes kind of...boring. it's like she's intentionally writing for a junior high class room with good, standard morals and plucky heroines that you could write an essay about...and it doesn't help that at the back of each book it provides questions for classroom discussions.

but i really enjoyed it. i really like the little world she's created and the story kept me turning pages, i read it start to finish in 3 hours while on a plane. there's 3 other books in the bayern series and i'm looking forward to reading them. i love finding a new book i like, and then finding out there's a whole series.

from left to right, books 2, 3 and 4.

(sorry for the little hiatus from the daily posts. summertime = going out of town.)
