What an author, what a world. Fforde truly is the master of the alternative universe - this was not only a gripping tale of espionage, conspiracy and exploration but every page also took you one step further into the fascinating version of wales Fforde has crafted. One where hibernation, mammoths and -60 C temperatures are commonplace. Having finished the book I not only miss Fforde‘s tone as an author, I also miss the world he led me through.

I actually got this Friday but we were on our way to a BD party and I forgot it was in the car.

The cover difference for the #owl rare edition is the gray lettering. It includes the following

1. House of Salt and Shadows book
2. Votive Lantern
3. Little mermaid Bath salts
4. Pencil case with interior tray (love)
5. Wooden bookmark from Juniper and Ivy (love them and their stuff)
6. Sea Witch tea. Decaf earl grey and Hazelnut.

LibrarianRyan Next months theme is Fear the night. They are including a paper back from the penguin classic horror collection. 6d
LibrarianRyan My guess for next months book is 6d

Although I‘m not the target audience for this book, (it‘s Middle Grade) I found it quite a charming read, & it was nice to have a MC of colour. It has shades of the Snow Queen & Narnia, but not the same depth of world building or characterisation. Children will probably love it. 3.5🌟

Frozen (Disney Frozen) | Victoria Saxon

Squeee, I won the Broadway ticket lottery for today's Frozen matinee! I haven't seen it yet and it isn't one that I'd pay top dollar for, even knowing that bc it's Disney it's unlikely to ever go on sale. But $35?! Heck yes! ❄️

JennyM Enjoy! 😊 1w

Snowflakes Fall | Patricia MacLachlan

Gorgeous poetry, but I don't know how much kids will understand it. As a lyrical way for adults to process the horrors of Sandy Hook, which are still traumatic almost seven years later, this is beautiful, though. I'm not usually a fan of Kellogg's illustrations, and that is pretty much the case here, too, but that last page - he nails it. The text and picture are perfection.

After much anticipation, a small group of friends left for a snow adventure! Today, we went tobogganing, threw some snowballs and crafted a ⛄️ and a snow cat!

I‘m excited to do my first #catsoflitsy post! 🐈

Greenglass House | Kate Milford

Spotted this book that my boys never read and decided that I would. Milford creates an intriguing story and a haunting atmosphere. I enjoyed it, but there were a few things that could have been written differently: Milo's adoption is mentioned frequently but isn't essential to the story, and Milford switches back and forth between Milo and Meddy's names and their nicknames for each other which breaks the flow of the story somewhat. 4.0⭐ #2019
