The Language of Thorns

The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic

This lovely cover caught my eye as I was browsing through the bookstore. Language of Thorns contains six short stories and is an interesting read if you are a fan of fairy tales and folklore. The first story about a girl named Ayama got me hooked.

Beautifully written and sets the mood for a late night read.

The Khalil Gibran Collection

“And as a single leaf turns not yellow but with the silent knowledge of the whole tree, So the wrong-doer cannot do wrong without the hidden will of you all.” – Khalil Gibran

This birthday, my husband gifted me some interesting books and Khalil Gibran’s collection was one of them. I have only read The Prophet. His compiled works include topics such as travel, love, crime and many more.
