Flights of Fantasy Book Club #1: Robin McKinley


We can't say enough how happy we were with last year's turnout for #FlightsofFantasy and we're super excited for this year's participation. But before we kick things off, we want to announce the winners of the Flights of Fantasy 2015 giveaway..

As we mentioned, we decided to add something new to the challenge – a book club! Alexa and I came up with this as a way to push ourselves to read new (to us!) fantasy and you are all more than welcome to join! There's no official read-along but the plan is read a new series every other month and discuss it the month after reading.

This month we'll be reading the Damar series by Robin McKinley, which includes two books: The Hero and the Crown and The Blue Sword.


About the series | From childhood, Aerin had been haunted by the story of her mother - a "witchwoman" who enspelled the king and then died in childbirth, leaving behind a newborn daughter and an heirless land. Left to her own devices, Aerin grew up wild, doing her best to live up to her reputation as the disappointment of the realm. But little did the young princess know the long-dormant powers of her mother would wield their own destiny, and leave Aerin with a duty to her scornful homeland that she couldn't refuse.

Will you be joining us this month?
