She received a master’s degree in children’s literature from Simmons College. Graceling is Ms.Cashore’s first novel. She lives in Jacksonville, Florida.
I haven’t had much experience with Young Adult Literature, as I was one of those kids who skipped over that genre because it was for kids. However I was recently sent Graceling by Kristin Cashore, and spent two lazy afternoons this past weekend reading what turned out to be a really enjoyable book.
It comes as a real pleasure to be able to recommend a book so highly as Kristin Cashore’s latest book, Fire. A book described as a “prequel-ish companion book” to Cashore’s first book, Graceling, Fire is a beautiful and wonderful story that every fantasy reader should read at least once.
Kristin Cashore is simply one of the most inspiring writers currently putting pen to paper, and you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not picking up Bitterblue.
