About the Book:

 

 

Blurb:

 

Most people have no idea goblins live in the woods around the small town of Bellwater, Washington. But some are about to find out. Skye, a young barista and artist, falls victim to a goblin curse in the forest one winter night, rendering her depressed and silenced, unable to speak of what happened. Her older sister Livy is at wit’s end trying to understand what’s wrong with her. Local mechanic Kit would know, but he doesn’t talk of such things: he’s the human liaison for the goblin tribe, a job he keeps secret and never wanted, thrust on him by an ancient family contract. Then Kit starts dating Livy, and Skye draws Kit’s cousin Grady into the spell through an enchanted kiss in the woods. Skye and Grady are doomed to become goblins and disappear from humankind forever, unless Livy, the only one untainted by enchantment, can unravel the spell by walking a dangerous magical path of her own.

 

 

 

Excerpt:

 

They had carried Skye up, up, up the trunks into a fantastically weird bunch of cobbled-together houses and bridges and mismatched dim electric lights that they had built all around a huge swath of evergreens. A treetop village, but its surfaces slimier and its inhabitants more disgusting than any of the fantasy fairylands Skye used to envision. Somehow she understood she could only see the place because she had taken their path and eaten the blackberry tart. She also understood that although she had only been carried a few hundred yards off the road, she was now almost totally out of reach of regular humans.

 

You love these trees, yes?” their leader had said. Skye gathered her name was Redring.

 

Yes.” Skye couldn’t lie, her tongue answering as if under some honesty potion. She still lay in the arms of half a dozen goblins, their prickly hands clamped all over her body.

 

And you wanted to see us. You accepted our invitation. We are so flattered, darling one.” Redring leaned closer, her foul breath spilling across Skye’s face. “Some we would simply steal from, and leave to fall apart, but not you. You we would like to keep.”

 

Me. I want her,” another goblin said, bulling his way in against Redring’s shoulder. Or at least, Skye assumed it was a he. His voice was deeper and his gaze upon Skye more lustful—it made her shudder, but all she could do was avert her eyes.

 

Redring shoved him. “Be patient, Slide!” She grinned at Skye again and softened her voice. “You see, there is a procedure for this. You will go home again, but eventually you will come to us.”

 

Someone shoved another sticky bite of food into Skye’s mouth: orange marmalade. She grimaced, but her obedient enchanted mouth chewed and swallowed it.

 

You will want to,” Redring continued.

 

A different goblin crammed what tasted like musty mince pie into her mouth. She swallowed that too.

 

You will lose your way in the human world.”

 

Another stuffed her mouth with stale cake with raspberry filling, gelatinous and with too many seeds. Tears of despair ran down her temples, yet she ate it.

 

You will come to the woods and choose your mate.”

 

Me!” the gruff goblin shouted, while someone smashed a handful of candied cherries into Skye’s mouth.

 

Shut up!” Redring told him, and the others cackled. “She called to us, so she gets to choose. Besides, it’s more fun, watching to see who she picks.” She turned to Skye again. “And when you have withered enough among the humans, you will join us here. You will become goblin.”

Violets of March
The Violets of March - Sarah Jio

This story begins when Emily Wilson sets out to Puget Sound to visit her Aunt Bee after she and her husband divorce due to his infidelity.  She is devastated and intends to try to make sense of her life again.  But wait . . .

 

At her aunt's house Emily finds an old diary in the nightstand drawer next to her bed.  There are people and events she reads about that sounds vaguely familiar.  Her aunt doesn't want her to associate with certain people on the island.  Years ago her mother and her aunt had a falling out but never found out why and neither of them will talk about it.  Her aunt's friend Evelyn tells Emily that she will be the one to finally make everything right. She sees the same photograph of a beautiful woman in different homes on the island but nobody will talk about this mysterious woman.  Emily continues to read the diary while she puts the pieces of the past together.

 

Needless to say I couldn't put this book down until all these questions were answered.  This book was definitely a page turner and one I read quickly.  Definitely recommended for those liking a bit of mystery and past/present stories.

 

How I acquired this book:  Guessing Barnes & Noble earlier this year.

Shelf life:  Less than a year.

Birds of Seattle and Puget Sound (City Bird Guides) - Chris C. Fisher This book has been so helpful to me. The drawings are excellent, and I can often find a bird in this little book based on the drawing that I can't find in the big fancy books with photographs of the birds!
