Review: Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale

5 stars

Book of a Thousand Days cover (link to Goodreads)

I love this book. It’s just all the things I want a book to be. It’s YA but approachable to late tweens and early teens, I’d say. A lady’s maid is locked in a tower with her lady because the lady refuses to marry a horrible man, claiming she’s already engaged to another lord. The lady’s father, enraged, says he will keep her there for seven years or until she changes her mind. Anyway, the lady turns out to have . . . issues, the horrible man has an even more horrible secret, the lord the lady is engaged to is super swoony (if a little too perfect), you get the idea. I love the character arc of the main character, and actually also of the lady she serves.
