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.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore


Goodreads synopsis:
Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight — she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme, and in her case horrifying, skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug. When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.

She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace — or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away... a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

Teaser:
"Her mind raced.  He was Graced, a fighter.  That much was clear.  And unless he had no feeling in the hand that raked her chest, he knew she was a woman" [Page 9]

I'm loving this book so far.  I'm nearly finished because I'm finding it difficult to put down so I hope to get a review up on the blog very soon.
