Goodreads Summary :

20708810A fantasy set in Tsarist Russia.
Elena Rudina lives in the impoverished Russian countryside. Her father has been dead for years. One of her brothers has been conscripted into the Tsar’s army, the other taken as a servant in the house of the local landowner. Her mother is dying, slowly, in their tiny cabin. And there is no food. But then a train arrives in the village, a train carrying untold wealth, a cornucopia of food, and a noble family destined to visit the Tsar in Saint Petersburg — a family that includes Ekaterina, a girl of Elena’s age. When the two girls’ lives collide, an adventure is set in motion, an escapade that includes mistaken identity, a monk locked in a tower, a prince traveling incognito, and — in a starring role only Gregory Maguire could have conjured — Baba Yaga, witch of Russian folklore, in her ambulatory house perched on chicken legs.

Taylor and I are super excited for this one! We’ve been dying to read Egg & Spoon, it’s been on our shelves for months and we’ve just been aching to get our hands onto it and just dive in, which is why we picked this for this month.  So grab your copy of Egg & Spoon if you can and read along with us and wait for our joint review at the end of April, along with available comment/discussion space and the bottom. We hope you guys are as excited as we are!

Also, next month if we have enough of you following our Book of the Month as well as our blog, we’d love to try out a Reader’s Choice!

    I love fantasy and this book sounds so good! Reading the synopsis, I got a little excited.. Don’t know if I’ll have the time to read along with you though as I have a full list of books to read already!

  • Stephanie

    I know! For me this was a total cover buy but when I read the synopsis I was like OMG I NEED TO READ THIS! And if you can, we’d love you to join us! And I’d say swap one book out for ours, but I know how hard that can be sometimes! If not this month, join us next month!

  • Josephine

    Yes, I will have a look to see if I can swap out a book.. I’m currently reading Crown of Midnight so I have to finish that. After that I may join in with you, instead of starting with the rest of my TBR. We shall see!

  • Stephanie

    Gah! I’m going to try and start Throne of Glass for my April TBR it’s been sitting on my shelves for far too long! I have a lot of series I’m trying to read through. It’s kind of tough.

  • Josephine

    Definitely get to it! It’s such a great book! I just recently posted up a review for Throne of Glass, if you’d like to check it out :) It may motivate you to read it!
