This week's teaser comes from In Dreams Begin by Skyler White. A book I read more than a year ago but felt it deserved to resurface for a bit.
I crave sleep the way a locked-up junkie wants a hit, but I've never actually heard voices before. So maybe I'm not asleep. Maybe I'm falling apart. p 3
This book was really interesting. A bit hard to follow at times, but interesting nonetheless. I love the way Skyler writes. The words seem to just write themselves. And her descriptions of the things and people in the books are amazing.
In a Victorian Ireland of magic, poetry, and rebellion, Ida Jameson, an amateur occultist, reaches out for power-but captures Laura Armstrong, a modern-day graphic artist, instead. When Ida channels Laura into the body of celebrated beauty and Irish freedom-fighter Maud Gonne, Laura falls in love with the young poet W. B. Yeats. Their love affair entwines with Irish history and weaves through Yeats' poetry- until Ida discovers something she wants more than magic in the subterranean spaces between Laura's time and her own. With Laura's Irish past threatening her orderly present, she and Yeats must find a way to make their love last over time, in changing bodies...or lose each other forever.
Can't wait to see the teasers you guys have this week!
