Greenwillow Books, 2008
Despite her family’s background in magic, her mother (who does not possess magic skills) sheltered Charmain from the arts her whole life. Now Charmain is caring for her relative; dealing with a special, stray dog and a slow wizard apprentice; and trying to learn the regular household duties to get along. Somehow, in helping at the Royal Library she get entangled in web involving the magical royal family. What seemed to be a simple task of house-sitting turns out to be far more complex than Charmain thought.
Reading Tub review of House of Many Ways: June 2009
Why a Throwback Thursday for Book Reviews?
Those of us who blog about books are a community. We read lots of books, we write lots of reviews, and we share those reviews with fellow book lovers and those in search of books for children and teens on our blogs, websites, and via social media.
We write so many reviews that, over time, they get buried by other, newer reviews. BUT! that book we read three years ago will always be new to some reader, somewhere. So why not share that review with a new audience?
Everyone is welcome! Here are the participation guidelines:
- If you reviewed the same book we’re featuring, add your permalink to the original review on the Reading Tub website or in the InLinkz Linkup.
- Want to (re)share a review you posted in June 2009, then add your permalink in the InLinkz Linkup. [No, it doesn’t have to be a book you loved; but it does have to be a review you take a lot of pride in.]
- Add any notes about the review in the comments, please.
The spammers have been having a blast with our Throwback Thursday posts … now its your turn to take back blogging from those nuiscances. Did you review House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones? Or another book from June 2009? Add it to our linkup above or comments below.
