The Girl Who Chased The Moon

I just got back from (another) fabulous air show weekend, & have to share this book.

You may know that i read.  Alot.  But i have to say it’s not very often that i feel the need to tell everyone to Read this Book!

Sarah Addison Allen is an author that everyone should read, this is her third novel and every bit as good as the last two (which, in case you are interested were, Garden Spells, and The Sugar Queen)

Emily Benedict came to Mullaby, North Carolina, hoping to solve some of the riddles surrounding her mothers life.  Why did she leave her hometown so suddenly?  Why did she vow never to return?

But the moment Emily enters the house where her mother grew up and meets the grandfather she never knew, she realises that mysteries aren’t solved in Mullaby.  In this town, they are a way of life.  Here are rooms where the wallpaper changes to suit your mood.  Unexplained lights skip across the yard at midnight, and a neighbour bakes hope in the form of a cake.

I love Sarah’s books, they are magical and glittery, just like their covers.  I really enjoyed reading this in the summer sun, with my gin and tonic :)

Read it. Please.
