I love autumn... the gentle patter of rain drops on skylight, wind whistling through the chimney, faint scents of apple wood, golden trees, cups of hot tea and yes baby fairies curled up asleep, wrapped in leaves to await the coming of spring... 🍁 #aseasonalautumn @creativecountryside

Days without end...

Anyone read this beauty yet? Sounds absolutely amazing! 🌌 Official blurb: β€œA vivid, touching and original debut, following the effects of an extraordinary catastrophe on very ordinary people.Set in the near future, The Book of M tells the story of a mysterious natural disaster that causes people's shadows to disappear and, shortly thereafter, their memories.The phenomenon imbues its victims with strange magic, but at a horrible price: it robs them of a memory each time they use it. Many try to resist the power, but the temptation is too great.As the shadowless victims forget more and more of who they are, reality begins to bend to reflect their fractured recollections, plunging the world into a terrifying, ever-shifting alternate landscape.”

Every winter, Wren Silke is chased through the forest in a warped version of a childhood game. The boys who haunt her are judges, powerful and frightening pursuers, who know nothing of her true identity. If they knew she was an augur, their sworn enemy, the game would turn deadly.

But Wren is on the hunt, too. Sent undercover as an intern to the Harkness Foundation - enemy headquarters - her family's survival rests on finding a secret meant to stay hidden. As the enmity between two ancient magics reaches breaking point, Wren is torn between old loyalties and new lies. And trapped in the most dangerous game of her life.
