My next review is for "The Binding" by Bridget Collins.
I want to start this review by mentioning the cover of the book - it's beautiful. There's
a real spate of these beautifully covered paperbacks coming onto the market over the last year and they're lovely. Gorgeous colours and a soft touch cover that is just a pleasure to hold. You'll know them when you see them.
Anyway onto the book. This one I came across by chance while I was at work (my day job) and it took my attention so I began reading it on my lunch breaks. I was hooked pretty quickly and by the time I was a few chapters in, I wasn't
just reading it on my lunch breaks, but at home as well.
I really liked the concept in the story (spoiler alert), that a person might have their memories "bound" into a book. I could see the
notion of why the 'Binders' would be thought of as Witches and was drawn in by the characterisations, the fear that people had for the Binders, the ideals of an apprentice and the twists in the story were very clever in how they were done.
If you want to lose yourself in a story that is as much a love story as it is a mystery, this is the one for you. I'm giving "The Binding" a 4 book score as I will want to read it again for sure. I enjoyed
this one and I think you will too.
Enjoy, and as always, Keep Reading! x
