Book # 1
By- Jessica E. Paige
Genre- YA Fairy Tale/Folklore
Orphaned at a young age, 15-year old Anouk’s punishment for being too outspoken is an arranged marriage worse than any she could imagine. Fleeing on horseback, yet without a sense of where to turn, she stumbles upon an idyllic village where she finds safe haven. Could this be home?
Ultimately, it will lead her to confront the very face of death, yet amidst the danger and darkness, she meets a handsome woodsman and finds a glowing blue flower with power beyond her wildest dreams.
Inspired by Russian fairy tales and steeped in ancient folklore, Paige’s novel is ripe with fantasy, love, and courage.
Jess, please tell us about yourself using 3 verbs, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
verbs: walk, imagine, dig
quirk: when I’m anxious (or just thinking too much) I rub the nails of my index finger and thumb together, so I always have a little groove in those nails.
Pop culture addiction: It’s a tie between Downton Abbey and Marc Maron’s WTF podcast
What’s the last movie you saw at the theater?
This or That-
