by Megan Whalen Turner
Um . . . Wow? Yeah. Wow would be a good word to describe it. I give a million thank-yous to Shannon Hale, who interviewed and recommended Megan Whalen Turner on her blog. I read King of Attolia, and I really, really enjoyed it. Then I read the Thief. And wow.
This book is a new favorite. Eugenides is the BEST CHARACTER IN THE WORLD! I love this book to death. I have great burning desires to read The Queen of Attolia now, and to also own all of them and put them on the honored place on my bookshelf.
I write so similar to Megan Turner that it is sort of frightening. I mean, my pacing is completely different, but my characters and world are incredibly similar. She’s better, just to make that clear, much better, but I love her writing. Love it. It completely fits me in all aspects.
