I'm going to be focusing on a book which I am planning to start soon - I, Morgana by Felicity Pulman. I received the book through NetGalley in return for an honest review. A couple of my Goodreads friends read it and didn't think much of it so I'm not sure what my experience will be with it. Only time will tell! At least it's a pretty short book.
"I am an old woman now. My bones creak and scrape together like bare branches in a winter wind. I ache with longing for my youth. When I notice my reflection, I am aghast at the vision of the hag who looks back at me. I mourn the passing of who I was, and everything I could have been. More than anything, I long to reverse time. Throughout the years I have tried and tried to do this, without success. Now, even my most potent spells and incantations cannot transform me into the young woman I once was, with all my life still to live. With age, my magical powers have all but deserted me. Once I was desired by men; now I am disregarded by all and loved by none."Should Be Reading. So for this book meme, I have to randomly turn to a page (or two) and choose a sentence to post here to tease you all with. I'm combining the two book memes and using the same book for both.
