With the snow days we’ve been having, it has been the perfect opportunity to curl up with a good book. I hadn’t done that since before I went back to work in January. Meaning I hadn’t finished Once Upon a Tower. I am glad that I was able to pick up where I left off without remembering the story. I love this one from Eloisa James. I love the way she is using her love and knowledge of Shakespeare plays and sonnets as a tool for flirtation between Edie and Gowan. I also find humor in the way Edie’s father is regretting his agreement to their betrothal all because he sees the pair have an attraction for one another. As if that is the worst thing a married couple could have. I also find interesting that Edie plays the cello, which was very unheard of for a woman to do during this time. All in all this has been a very enjoyable read so far. (I expected nonetheless from James.) I’m anxious to finish reading it and hope to have a few hours to do so this weekend.
