Review: The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss


The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss
Published Date:
January 2012
Publisher: Quirk Books
Genre: YA

The Story: One enchanting romance. Two lovers keeping secrets. And a uniquely crafted book that binds their stories forever.

When Evelyn Morgan walked into the village bookstore, she didn’t know she would meet the love of her life. When Brendan Thorne handed her a medieval romance, he didn’t know it would change the course of his future. It was almost as if they were the cursed lovers in the old book itself . . .

---------------------------------------------------------------
The Thorn and the Blossom is a remarkable literary artifact: You can open the book in either direction to decide whether you’ll first read Brendan’s, or Evelyn’s account of the mysterious love affair. Choose a side, read it like a regular novel—and when you get to the end, you’ll find yourself at a whole new beginning.

My Review: It was so cool to see this book. I chose to read Evelyn's story first. And wow. Evelyn knows she doesn't want to work for her father. But she does know that she wants to be a writer. She goes to a pretty well unknown village and stumbles across this medieval romance. Older than Juliet and Romeo. Evelyn run's into Brendan, and they start to fall in love. She then runs off, not telling you why! In Brendan's story, he longs to see Evelyn again. When they do cross paths, do they stay together or are they seperated again? I will let you read the book to find out!

  1. That is a really interesting book. I might have to get it just for the novelty of opening the book either way. LOL
