Midnight Tales Tour

Happy Midnight Tales Day!  I know you are excited about the release of The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo.  We were asked to create a post that tied in folklore and The Language of Thorns and I chose a photograph.  I took this photo with my favorite scarf and used black roses as my folklore symbol.  Black roses in folklore often symbolize death, but it can also symbolize rebirth and new beginnings.

The Language of Thorns features folklore of Ravka and from the sampling I have read it pairs Leigh Bardugo’s beautiful writing with research and imagination.  I can’t wait to read the whole thing!

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
