Well Said: Snaps

"She stuck her head out and took a deep breath. If she could eat the cold air, she would. She thought cold snaps were like cookies, like gingersnaps." -The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
When I found a copy of this book for $1.00 in a vintage shop, I squealed and did a little dance. I just started it and already I am enchanted. Her writing is so descriptive and whimsical. *le sigh* Click here to see my review of my first Sarah Addison Allen read The Girl Who Chased the Moon.

  16. That's always fun when you find something you've been wanting and for a great price, too! I like the fall leaves in the background. The cover is very pretty. I sometimes miss the seasons. However, when it's cold like it is now, in other parts of the world, I'm happy I'm in a warm spot! Nice teaser. And love the SO NOT Tuesday Teaser!!

  28. Ooh, I'm jealous, what a great find! I really enjoyed this one, although Garden Spells is my favorite of the three she's written.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oops, guess she's written more than three. I didn't realize she had one coming out this year!

  31. I absolutely adored this book! It has the perfect amount of magic and a fantastic mix of characters. And I LOVE the Josey isn't the awkward, rail-thin, type of quirky heroine.

  34. Oh you lucky duck! Snatching up a copy for a dollar! Wow! How I love Sarah's writing. Her new book, The Peach Keeper comes out in just a couple of months and I can hardly wait! It's definitely my most anticipated book of the year. Love it! Especially how she intertwines the food into her story telling, just luscious. I could eat my way through all of her books. Fabulous teaser!

  35. Oh, I'm loving that quote! I definitely need to read her books, everything I hear about them convinces me I'll love them!

    ReplyDelete
  36. That quote is perfect. I loved this book, too! I have trouble deciding which is my favorite, though...they're all so good!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I could totally understand wanting to breath the cold, crisp air. One of the few things I like about winter! :)

    ReplyDelete
