I stopped by the main branch of a local library recently. I really love going to this particular library because they have a permanent “bookstore” in a little niche in the hall.
Because I’m trying to be good, I only bought 6 books (hardback). The good part is that I only spent $6.00!! Yep, $1 per book.
This haul is especially important to me because I found a copy of Illusion by Paula Volsky. I first read Illusion as an adventurous library user years and years ago. I read it but it really haunted me – I can’t say I enjoyed the read but I did enjoy the book. If that makes any sense. It was a haunting book and situation to me – Illusion is an Alternate Historical Fantasy, based off of the French Revolution. It follows a young noble girl as she deals with survival in the midst of the destruction of her entire world.
