Welcome to Amanda and Holly from Gun in Act One. You’re in for a sweet surprise today!

Thanks Katie for having us!! When I asked Holly if she wanted to participate she started sending me book poems – so obviously that’s how we had to share our book love today.  All rhyming credit goes to Holly!

From Amanda:

The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen

Roses are red, violets are blue,

If you like magical realism,

The Sugar Queen is the book for you!

This book will give you the feels

but is it magic or is it for realz?

There’s a fairy in the closet

and sweet candy deposits

and that’s just some of the appeals!

From Holly:

Finnikin of the Rock

Froi of the Exiles

Quintana of Charyn

For fantasy where you’ll fall in love,

And also feel all the rages,

Please read the Lumatere Chronicles,

All fifteen hundred pages.

What a creative idea from Amanda and Holly at Gun in Act One for Falling in Love with Books! Two books they hope you’ll give a chance in these short and sweet poems. I love it! Thank you, Amanda and Holly for giving us a taste of these two–and in fact, since one is a series, we actually get a glimpse of four books!

  1. I LOVED the Lumatere Chronicles!!!! So. Good. I love how global/epic they felt and yet how personal because of the deep characters. Marchetta is incredible. Have you read On the Jellicoe Road?

Please share your thoughts!
