He’s from 1892 England, she’s in a small library in 2017. And that’s just the start of
their troubles.
Emme never meant to stay in Maine. She’d come only to find a librarian for her Gram’s library, a custodian for the collection of mysterious books she’d promised to protect. On a dark, wintery night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique
novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his.
When the last page is read he’s gone and Emme feels the cold loneliness of lost love. Will she find Jack again, or will their love be forever lost? The answer lies within the pages…
 ANNNNDDDDDD!!!!!

The Librarian excerpt
© Christy Sloat
I bent down on my hands and knees and felt along the floor hoping not to touch anything gross. My hands grazed something odd. I felt along its edges. It was hard and didn’t seem to belong there. Now my curiosity had me crouching in the dark trying to figure out what
this was. Finally I found the flashlight and clicked it on. Focusing the light, I saw the odd thing sticking up like a broken piano key. It was a floorboard upended. I pushed it to get it back into place, but all that did was make it fly up further and then completely out of the floor.
 
“Well, that’s just great,” I told myself.
I was here in the dark talking to myself. I dared to take a look into the floor, hoping not to find a rat family living inside or a web housing a large spider. I did find something, but it wasn’t sinister; it was a set of books in a case covered in plastic wrap. Reaching
in, I pulled them out. The dust on it was at least three inches thick. This must be the special book collection Gram told me to read and to keep safe. Anything that was precious to her, she hid—like the money I found pinned to her clothing in her closet, or the other jewelry she had taped to the back of her dresser.
 
I brushed the dust off and opened the plastic to find four books inside. They were pretty good in size and looked to be in great condition. They didn’t have traditional covers that you’d see in a bookstore. Instead they were covered in a thick material to keep the books
clean and the binding solid. I pulled the first book from the case and placed the others back into the hole. Covering it back with the loose board was easier than taking it out. I held the book close, and instead of going upstairs I went to my book nook. I had just washed the blankets the day before. Cozied up in the nook, I stared out the window one last time before opening the book. I decided I would only read for a little while before going up to bed. Gram did want me to read them after all.
I opened the first page to the title page; it was blank. I flipped the page and snuggled deeper into the blankets preparing to read the first chapter and that’s when things changed. 
About Christy: 
I am Southern California native, now living in New Jersey! How did that happen? I am married and
have  two beautiful little girls who love to read just like Mommy. I have had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for just as long. I hope my books can inspire others to read and to write too.

Book blurb:

A ruthless young assassin continues her journey for revenge in this new epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff.

Assassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she’s no closer to ending Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo, or avenging her familia. And after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia begins to suspect the motives of the Red Church itself.

When it’s announced that Scaeva and Duomo will be making a rare public appearance at the conclusion of the grand games in Godsgrave, Mia defies the Church and sells herself to a gladiatorial collegium for a chance to finally end them. Upon the sands of the arena, Mia finds new allies, bitter rivals, and more questions about her strange affinity for the shadows. But as conspiracies unfold within the collegium walls, and the body count rises, Mia will be forced to choose between loyalty and revenge, and uncover a secret that could change the very face of her world.

The Big Book Box of happiness

If you are reading this and still not aware of book boxes in India, go check my post on the growing number of book subscription boxes in our country, curated with love for all bibliophiles. Like i mentioned there, I got my first TBB (The Big Book) box this month. You can check out their plans from the website here. I’m not an Espresso girl but hey, the Cappuccino boxes were totally adorbs but a bit above my book budget. (I had already done some book shopping online 😥 )

So i ordered myself an Espresso box, a little late i should say and got it after almost everyone in Bookstagram revealed the Readable and Collectible book of the month :/

Nevertheless, i enjoyed and squeaked and did happy dances when i received my box, a gift from me to me, just a day before Valentine’s.

ACOWAR !!

All Rhysand fans out there would have known that ACOWAR book cover has been revealed.

Now waiting for the book to be released!!! *Squeal* May 2nd is so far away..

Very very curious to know what happens in book 3 of ‘A court of Thorns and Roses’ (ACOTAR) by Sarah J Mass. Thought it looked like a retelling of Beauty and Beast in book#1, the second book ‘A court of Mist and Fury’ (ACOMAF) just blew my mind *Cant get enough of Rhysand*

The April book box theme of “Books n Beyond” is related to Rhys they said, and off i went and pre-booked.. Book yours now.. 😀
