Book of a Thousand Days

The letter for today, kiddies, is “B.”

I’m working my way through the alphabet, featuring one recently published novel for each letter.  Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale was released on September 18th, and it’s already at #871 on Amazon sales rank.  That’s incredible.  Many bestselling authors never break or even get near the top 1,000 mark on Amazon.

The book is based on a forgotten Brothers Grimm fairytale.  Becky of Becky’s Book Reviews had this to say about it:

“Book Of A Thousand Days is an exciting read about a maid, a lady, two suitors, mistaken identities, disguises, love, and war. Dashti, our narrator, is a maid to the Lady Saren. The two, when the book opens, are being locked away in a dark tower because of the lady’s refusal to marry the man her father has chosen…

I can’t really relate much more without giving away too much…but I must say that this book was INCREDIBLE. I loved the story, loved the characters, loved the plot twists, loved the ending.”

Read Becky’s entire review at her site.  The book is marketed as a novel for young adults but sounds like a good read for people of any age.
