Oh man, y’all, I just finished reading Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton and the title does not lie because there sure is a lot of blood. The magic here is pretty much 1) have special blood 2) bleed on stuff 3) make a wish. This means there’s a lot of room for the romance, which is a shame. On the plus side they hook up pretty early on, sparing us the “suspense” about whether they get together. On the down side gives us way too many pages about how madly and desperately in love they are, since they just met 20 minutes ago.
Aren’t you guys supposed to be fighting evil? Maybe it’s time to stop making out and go bleed on something?
At least all this blood goes with my new hat:
I made and Antler hat for my dad this Christmas and decided I wanted one for myself. Yarn is Malabrigo Worsted.
Let’s meet in the graveyard. I’ll bring my hat and a knife. You bring the mysterious spell book.
