I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

The Fool's Girl by Celia Rees


Goodreads synopsis:
Young and beautiful Violette may be of royal blood, but her kingdom is in shambles when she arrives in London on a mysterious mission.  Her journey has been long and her adventures many, but it is not until she meets the playwright William Shakespeare that she gets to tell the entire story from beginning to end.  Violetta and her comic companion, Feste, have come in search of an ancient holy relic that the evil Malvolio has stolen from their kingdom.  But where will their remarkable quest - and their most unusual story - lead?

Teaser:
"Man was revealed as maid; the Duke could marry his page.  The Countess was free to transfer her affection to the other twin, and Sebastian most happy to receive it.  The couples were joined in double celebration.  It was a golden time.  But as you well know sir, few stories end at the happy ever after" [Page 17].

I picked this book up from the library because I'm a huge Shakespeare fan and was intrigued by the idea of finding out what happened after 'Twelfth Night' ended.  I'm really enjoying it so far!
