Quirk Books, January 17, 2012
Image and Description from Amazon: When Evelyn Morgan walked into the village bookstore, she didn’t know she would meet the love of her life. When Brendan Thorne handed her a medieval romance, he didn’t know it would change the course of his future. It was almost as if they were the cursed lovers in the old book itself . . .

The Thorn and the Blossom
 is a remarkable literary artifact: You can open the book in either direction to decide whether you’ll first read Brendan’s, or Evelyn’s account of the mysterious love affair. Choose a side, read it like a regular novel—and when you get to the end, you’ll find yourself at a whole new beginning.

It's only 82 pages, but I don't care.  It looks gorgeous and something right up my alley.

Check out Theodora Goss' short story collection In the Forest of Forgetting as well as her website.


  1. Wow, this sounds really interesting! I'm going to have to look into this one for sure. :)

  2. I so LOVE that you continue to inspire and amaze me. I, too, look forward to reading this two-sided story.

  3. @Misty I know! And this is why e-Readers will never be able to be the only way we read. You couldn't really capture the format and loveliness of this book any other way.

    @erdspark Awww, blush. I love you too, my sweet.

  4. Ooo - this looks fabulous! I really love the stuff Quirk books has been coming out with.
