I haven’t given novels written in verse a try and when I found out that Song of the Sparrow is that kind of book, I immediately became interested. It’s an Arthurian tale told from the point of view of Elaine of Ascolat, The Lady of Shalott. Check out the premise below, it looks like the kind of book that I could really sink my teeth into.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Beautiful sixteen-year-old Elaine has a temperament as fiery as her long red hair. The daughter of a solider in young Arthur’s army, Elaine is the sole girl in militaristic world of men. Often slipping into daydreams, she wishes that the handsome Lancelot would see her more than a tomboy. Then a new girl arrives, and Elaine is thrilled-until Gwynivere proves to be cold and cruel. But when Elaine and Gwynivere are thrown into a situation of gravest danger, the girls must band together in order to survive. Can Elaine find the strength to fight for the kingdom she has always believed in?
Doesn’t it look interesting? What about you, what book is in your wishlist?
