Tithe, A Modern Fairy Tale


Well, I have finally found a book to read after several attempts. Unfortunately for me I am a picky reader. I love to read, but don't have tons of time. SO the book must be really good at grrabbing my attention and keeping me involved. Tithe, by Holly Black is one such book. I love the way she pulls you into her world. It is a fantasy which I just love. One thing I have discovered about myself is I like modern fantasy. I think it is called urban fantasy too. That is why the Harry Potter books were so compelling to me. This book by Holly is geared to youg adult readers, but it doesn't seem like it to me. I hope you give it a try if you like fantasy books. No affiliation just enjoying it a lot.

You might also like the Borderland series by Will Shetterly and others -- very good urban fairy tales.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will check them out. I am always on the search for good fantasy works. They really inspire my own work too.
