And the winner is…
Of course, even if you didn’t win, I still recommend you check out Melissa’s blog, where you can find links to all the fun places she spreads her gorgeous pictures online, (like Instagram, don’t miss her if you are on Instagram!). And of course, you should find yourself a copy of UnBlessed as well!
UnBlessed by Crystin Goodwin
I could tell you about the world. The magic of the elements and the animals. The ceremonies and the changes. The extensive history of the people.
But I’d hate to ruin the way the author unfolds it for you.
I could tell you in great detail the why’s and wherefores of the characters whom I loved and those who, upon reflection, I wished had been a little more fleshed out.
But I don’t want to introduce any prejudice. I want you to be as taken with the people as I was.
I could tell you what I absolutely loved and what left me wanting.
But I won’t.
I could even tell you just how it leaves you hanging at the end to send you running off to Amazon to see if her next book has yet been published.
I could tell you all of that.
But all that’s really important.
All I really feel you need to know.
Is that I have three young girls who all require breakfast in the early morning.
And the night I sat down to read (and eventually finish) this book I was left with far, far, less than the recommend eight hours of sleep a person is supposed to receive.
Far, far, less.
Would I recommend it? It was my turn for the morning shift with the girls and it was still totally worth it.
