The Time Will Come (4)
The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books for Company, where we can highlight the books on our shelves that we’ve been meaning to get to for some time, but have been put on the back burner for one reason or another.
The book that I chose for this week is:
Tithe (The Modern Faerie Tales #1)
Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces the sixteen-year-old back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms — a struggle that could very well mean her death.

I haven’t yet read anything by Holly Black, but a lot of bloggers have been selecting Black Heart as their Waiting on Wednesday pick lately, since it is set to release soon. And that reminded me that last year I bought Tithe, and still have yet to read it! I’ve wanted to read it forever it seems, but it has always been pushed back for one reason or another. But now that I’ve picked it up off my shelf for the first time in a long while, I realize how little of a book it is! My copy is 331 pages, but it’s a short, squat book – one that I could get through in no time. So one of these days when I have a lot of reading time on my hands, I’m going to finally get to this one!
