77 Saturday :: The Good Hawk by Joseph Elliot
Ok, so this week I meant to join in with 77 Saturday and completely forgot because it was the second day in a row that the temperature was over 40C and I think my brain might have melted a bit. In any case, I am aware that today is in fact Sunday, but I’m going to go ahead and join in with 77 Saturday today anyway.
First, here are the Seventy-Seven Saturday Rules:
- Pick up a book (your current read, or the closest book to you, or your next read, etc)
- Turn to page 77
- Find a snippet, sentence or paragraph you like.
- Share it on your blog or Twitter or Instagram. Link back to AusYABloggers, using #77Saturday
This weekend I’ve been reading The Good Hawk by Joseph Elliot. This is a brand new (it came out yesterday!) fantasy book – the first in a planned series – for readers aged 12ish and up. Walker Books kindly sent me this copy, and I’m about halfway through and really enjoying it, so I wanted to share a snippet today (with a full review to come after I finish).
Here we go – from page 77 of The Good Hawk:
“I’m sorry about everything that’s happened today,” I say. I can assure you I was against it as much as you were.”
“I thought so.”
“Oh, I don’t mean… It’s just, well, before today marriage was forbidden on Skye. I presume they told you that?”
This cover is still gorgeous!That passage is intriguing, too. Can't wait to hear your thoughts. 💜
isn't it gorgeous?!
