Over the summer I've had a lot more free time to read which makes me very happy. It's like a break from reality/life which occasionally is needed especially when you're stressed. I've been working myself up over going to university in September but thats a whole other post... Anyway, Celia Rees is who I wanted to shower in light and praise today because she is an amazing author. I recommend these four books (Pirates! Sovay, Witch Child and Sorceress) to anyone of any age if you like a gripping story about strong women. Her protagonists are always so empowering which I love and the stories are all so individual. I found myself becoming seriously emotionally involved with each book and each character's life that on one hand I hated the books ending, yet on the other hand I could not live without knowing what happened in the end. Next on my list to read by Rees is The Fool's Girl.
