I’m on vacation, but I did get one book before I left last week.

The Honey Month by Amal El-Mohtar

(Purchased)

A fascinating experiment in literary synesthesia in which the scents, tastes and textures of assorted honeys are transmuted into a wordsmith’s cycle of fey mischief. These bewitching poems and stories unwind a fevered world of magic and longing and young women who chance the uncanny and gain wisdom beyond their years.

Mailbox Monday is taking a blog tour. This month’s host is Brooke of The Bluestocking Guide. Head over there to see what goodies others got in their boxes and to share your own loot.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. Here’s my report.
