Friday Favorites is a weekly meme hosted at Tressa's Wishful Endings that spotlights a favorite author, book, series, publisher, cover, blog, etc. Basically whatever bookish thing that you love, recommend, and want to tell others about.
I recently discovered this meme and thought it would be a fun way of putting the spotlight on some individual favorites. This week I'm featuring the book I'm currently reading aloud to Bit (an old favorite of mine):
As a Tam Lin retelling, The Perilous Gard is also a perfect read for this time of year. I have a weak spot for Tam Lin retellings. Most of them don't live up to expectations. Or maybe it is more accurate to say that most of them don't live up to the standard set in this book. I love everything about The Perilous Gard, the setting, the mystery of the Queen and her people, the intrepid heroine, Katherine, and Christopher (who is amazing). This book also contains one of the best proposals/declarations of love of all time.
