Welcome to the launch of Shadows of the Hersweald, the third novella in the Legends of Light series! This Hansel and Gretel retelling is an amazing novella that I was privileged to read it before it was officially released and I loved it! The author Hope Ann does a wonderful job with this series blending together allegorical, fairy tale, and "fruits of the Spirit" elements. So hang around if you enjoy Christian fantasy and fairy tale retellings to learn more about this Hansel and Gretel novella!
They would have to come that afternoon. Haydn glared at the rutted road twisted away from the gate beneath him, slithering into the shadows of the Harsweald.

Welcome to the Bookish Tag. It's very booky. ;) Kara over at Saved by Grace tagged me, and here you have it!
You must be honest
You must answer all the questions
You must tag at least 4 people
1. Which Book Has Been On Your Shelf The Longest?
Probably Meet Kit from when I was four, or the Nurse Nancy Golden Book I got about the same time.
2. What is your current read, your last read, and the book you'll read next?
Currently I am reading Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott. I am loving it so much, especially the dear characters. I think the last thing I read was a re-read of The Last Battle by C. S. Lewis. And next will be Freckles by Gene Stratton-Porter.
3. What book did everyone like but you hated?
No book comes to mind.
4. What book do you keep telling yourself you'll read but you probably won't?
I have so many I keep telling myself I'll read and I hope to read them all. . .one day. . .and who knows if I will or not? Not me!

PS. Remember this post about Song of the Sword by Hope Ann? The next book in the Legends of Light series is coming out in one week! It's called Shadows of the Hersweald and is a "Hansel and Gretel" retelling. I was privileged to read it before it was released and I would tell you all about how amazing it is, but you'll have to wait for my post next week that's part of its book launch blog tour. 😉AND there's a short story that goes along with it, so the brilliant-ness doesn't end when the novella does.…
