Today is my stop on The Weeping Books of Blinney Lane. Check out my review!
Welcome to Blinney Lane, a historical Salem shopping district controlled by a witch’s curse.
Sarah Allister just wants a normal life running her bookstore and daydreaming about the handsome deliveryman. Contentment seems within reach, even if she has to deal with the daily phenomena that occur in her shop.
But when her spirited nephew shows up to spend the summer, all bets are off. Now Sarah must keep Ricky from discovering the curse of Blinney Lane and awakening its full power.
Will Ricky heed Sarah’s warnings? Or will he accidentally awaken the magical weeping books and send Sarah back to a land she swore to forget?
Get ready for a modern fairy tale that will sweep you away to lands beyond your imagination.
The Weeping Bppks of Binney Lane is an awesome fantasy, that had me hooked from the beginning. I love the pacing of this novel. You aren’t sure where you are headed in the beginning, but before you know it, you’re transported. The plot is engaging, and I had a lot of fun reading this.
I love our characters in this novel. They are intriguing and flawed, and I could tell them a part. Each character stood on his/her own, and I was never confusing the two.
I love the world building. Blinney Lane to Farwin Wood…the creatures too. Everything I look for in a fantasy novel. Drea Damara clearly has a talent for creating other worlds, and I couldn’t get enough.
I highly recommend checking this one out if you are a fancy of beautiful world building and fun, relatable characters!
Drea Damara grew up in Illinois working on her family’s farm. Raised in a home of seven with only one television, she spent her free time reading and roaming the woods. She set writing aside to join the Army and later returned to the Middle East, conducting similar work as a civilian. Drea enjoys writing in multiple genres and is currently working on additional installments of her Blinney Lane series.
