I’ve spent the past week as a subject of Montmoray. Well, not really, but I may as well have. I’ve been immersed in a trilogy recommended by fellow Inkslinger Kallie George: A Brief History of Montmoray, The FitzOsbornes in Exile, and The FitzOsbornes at War, by Michelle Cooper.
Now, I am thoroughly wishing two things:
1. That Montmoray could be a real place.
2. That I could write books like this.
As item two is unlikely, I plan to comfort myself by reading the rest of the books recently recommended by my writing group:
Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
To which I added:
The Painted Girls by Cathie Marie Buchanan
If I have thicker glasses next time you see me, you’ll know why!
