Hi everyone! How are you guys?
So yesterday I officially published my first two posts on my new blog. Have you seen them?
If you haven’t, I will link them down in the comments and you can go and check them out (as soon as you’re done reading this, of course!)
My new blog is a lifestyle blog called “My Interrupted Life” and I named it that because I started it during coronavirus, when my life IS being interrupted, so… the title is not a lie.
Enough rambling about that, it isn’t what you’re here for!
Anyways, today I really wanted to talk about books because I haven’t done a post about reading in forever and I think they’re really fun to write, especially since it gets me to pick up a book!
So today I’m going to be doing a book review on The Maskmaker’s Daughter by Holly Webb.
I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK.
Do I need to say more?
Okay. I will.
This is the story of Colette, a young seamstress’s daughter living in Venice. She has never known her father and her mother refuses to speak of him.
One day a countess orders a dress from their shop, and, before she van get paid, Colette’s mother dies. That night, her father comes to the shop and takes her with him to his house. He is a wealthy maskmaker and uses magic on his masks. Soon Colette starts her magic training, too. But her father is making a mask for the same countess who didn’t pay Colette and her mother. However, the mask he is making for her is putting him under a very deep spell…
I really liked this book but I think it would have been interesting to get a bit more background on the characters who are less important, like perhaps Rizzo, the maskmaker’s apprentice, who is almost like his own son.
Overall it was a great story, and I really enjoyed reading it.
