Lots of amazing books have recently arrived on my doorstep or through my letterbox and today I’m sharing news of this amazing book which is definitely a a book left at my doorstep as it was just too big a parcel to fit through my letterbox! 😮  I knew this book was big but I didn’t realise it was over 600 pages in length! 😮  This book is beautiful though, even the proof copy here is just gorgeous and the story is one that intrigued me so much when I heard about it last year that it’s one of the books I’ve been eager to read for months.  Let’s take a look at what I’m excited about! 😀 …

The Absolute Book by Elizabeth Knox – Taryn Cornick believes her sister Bea was deliberately run down and killed. She believes it so hard she allows a man called the Muleskinner to exact the justice Bea was denied. An eye for an eye.
Which is when Taryn’s problems really begin.
Because the police suspect Taryn’s involvement in the death.
Worse, others have their eyes on Taryn – those in a faraway place who know what Taryn’s family have been carefully hiding in their vast library. The Absolute Book.
They want it – and they want Taryn to help find it.
For the lives of those in more than one world depend upon it . . .

Just check out the first page inside the front cover of this beautiful proof copy😍…

This book is well over 600 pages, 640 I believe, so that’s a LOT of reading!  But I’m so excited for this book, I’ve been raving about it since I first heard of it, and now I can’t wait to get started.  It might take me a while to get through the whole book but as soon as I have I’ll share my thoughts with you. 😀
