#BookADayUK 24: A hidden gem

Claire

I quite like what Nikki included for this post, so I have to make sure what I do is good too. I don’t think this for #BookADayUK yet but I have to include it because I really do think of it as a hidden gem!

I first came across this book on Facebook whilst browsing Tor.Com’s page and I saw it crop up many times. My local library in Oxford had it so I just picked it up one day (not expecting to be wowed but to enjoy it, simply put). What I didn’t expect was to sit for 4 to 5 hours straight, not budging, barely eating or moving, so that I could efficiently devour this book. I had exams during this time and I totally forgot all about them. Either way, I consider this a true hidden gem.

Blurb:
You, dear reader, continue at your own risk. It is not for the faint of heart—no more so than the study of dragons itself. But such study offers rewards beyond compare: to stand in a dragon’s presence, even for the briefest of moments—even at the risk of one’s life—is a delight that, once experienced, can never be forgotten. . . .

I’m going to go with something I found in a bookstore as opposed to everything else that “hidden gem” could possibly mean. I can’t think WHY I ever picked up Revenge of the Mooncake Vixen (it was probably just the name?), but it became a total unlikely favourite.

I’ve gone with a different cover this time to shake it up a bit since I’ve already listed this book once…
