Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Your favourite line/scene.

I have finally started to read The Shepherd’s Crown, Terry Pratchett’s last book.

First LineIt was born in the darkness of the Circle Sea; at first just a soft floating thing, washed back and forth by tide after tide.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb


Deep in the Chalk, something is stirring. The owls and the foxes can sense it, and Tiffany Aching feels it in her boots. An old enemy is gathering strength.

This is a time of endings and beginnings, old friends and new, a blurring of edges and a shifting of power. Now Tiffany stands between the light and the dark, the good and the bad.

As the fairy horde prepares for invasion, Tiffany must summon all the witches to stand with her. To protect the land. Her land.

There will be a reckoning . . .


Introduce the main character  –Listener, Midwife, Witch.

Delightful Design


Audience appeal  –Anyone with a good sense of humour and a love of the absurd.

Your favourite line/scene

“Dear sir, Mister Feegle,” said Mrs Earwig.  “This is a council of war, so we should be discussing strategies and tactics.”

“Ah weel, ye can if ye wish, but we are Feegles and we dinnae mess about wi’ things like that.  It’s all aboot usin’ yon claymore to best offence.  And if ye dinnae get that right, your last resort is to nut ’em.

Tiffany took in Mrs Earwig’s face and said cheerfully, “Could you do that, Mrs Earwig?”

She was given a Look, and Mrs Earwig said, “I will nut as I see fit.”  And to Tiffany’s surprise, the other witches applauded, and for once Mrs Earwig was wreathed in smiles.

If you want to join in, then answer the F.R.I.D.A.Y questions and use the Friday Book Share meme. Tag Shelley (@ShelleyWilson72) in, so she can read what you have added, too.

  1. Oh, golly, I love and miss Terry Pratchett.
    I have only read the first twenty-five or so of his novels. I am behind on the last ten or fifteen.
    Thank you for sharing, Liz.
