BOOK REVIEW: The Two Princesses of Bamarre

I’d weave her adventures and mine into tapestries. I’d put both of us in them, back to back, Meryl fighting her monsters and I fighting mine. And perhaps one day someone would make up verses about us, and we’d be together again, the two princesses of Bamarre.


The Two Princesses of Bamarre“A kingdom beset by monsters . . .
A disease that weakens and destroys . . .
An epic poem and a hero of long ago . . .
A story of danger and desperation . . . ”

The two princesses of Bamarre couldn’t be more different. Princess Addie is fearful and shy. Her deepest wish is for safety. Princess Meryl is bold and brave. Her deepest wish is to save the kingdom of Bamarre. They are sisters, and they mean the world to each other.

Then disaster strikes, and Addie — terrified and unprepared — sets out on a perilous quest. In her path are the monsters of Bamarre: ogres, specters, gryphons, and dragons. Addie must battle them, but time is running out, and the sisters’ lives — and Bamarre’s fate — hang in the balance.

TOP 10: Favorite Book Covers

So, I’ve decided to start doing favorites lists once a month, just to have something fun and different to think about. Here’s the first!

I had a lot of fun looking through my ridiculously large book collection, and also spent way too long trying to narrow it down to 10, but here’s what I came up with. I’m only using books that are on my personal bookshelves, which excludes any borrowed books and all of my digital copies.

Also, I haven’t necessarily read all of these — in fact, I’ve only read three. The ones I haven’t read, especially my #1 favorite, are going on my TBR list for the next couple months because I need to get to them ASAP!
