About a month ago, Laura, Morgan, and myself started talking about doing a readalong post for Daughter of the Forest, a book that had been widely recommended and raved over by some of our blogger/twitter/IRL friends. We started talking about on Twitter, and then found other people wanted to join – so we said more the merrier! This is a compilation of all of our individual reactions and little snippets from our already posted or forthcoming reviews! Thanks for stopping by to check it out <3
Snippets from our reviews!
Some of our favorite quotes:
I ran until I was dizzy and breathless, until I reached the far end of the beach, where the rocky headland rose from the white sand. There I leaned my back against the stones and listened to my heart pounding and drew in breaths of wild sea air. I had not realized, had not known how painful a burden had been laid on me, until now, when for a single day I was free.
Real life is not quite as it is in stories. In the old tales, bad things happen, and when the tale has unfolded and come to its triumphant conclusion, it is as if the bad things had never been. Life is not as simple as that, not quite.
I know it’s hard for you to trust me. If I ever find the man who did this to you, who made you so frightened, I’ll kill him with my bare hands. But you can trust me.
You will find the way, daughter of the forest. Through grief and pain, through many trials, through betrayal and loss, your feet will walk a straight path.
