Book Tour + GIVEAWAY: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black- #Bookishwishes

Today, I'm taking part on the Bookish Wishes tour, for Holly Black's The Darkest Part of the Forest.
First up, a bit about the book.

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author HOLLY BLACKspins a dark, dangerous and utterly beautiful faerie tale, guaranteed to steal your heart...Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once. At the centre of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointy as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.Until one day, he does… As the world turns upside down and a hero is needed to save them all, Hazel tries to remember her years spent pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

For each stop, we were asked to share a bookish wish. Now, I have many, and could probably go on forever, but I'll share one I haven't ranted about online for ages. And that would  be to, one day, own a book and bake cafe.
It would sell food like this

 And of course, have fabulous drinks to go with them. Maybe something like this

and of course

 And the books- well, they wouldn't be the things for sale. You see, I know a couple of cafes near me where they have a book exchange, where it's take a book, leave a book. But their book exchanges are only small shelves.  In my book and bake shop, at least one whole wall would have bookshelf fitted to it for swapping.

 And there'd be a mix of genres and things and eventually we'd have a community of booklovers who shared things and had conversations and we'd just foster a band of happiness.

Also, as part of this tour, Indigo is playing  Fairy Godmother, and thus I have a copy of The Darkest Part of the Forest to give away to somebody in the UK.
To enter, tell me -your- bookish wish. Post them in the comments.
 For a extra entries, make a graphic or something illustrating your wish, and share it on social media with the tag #bookishwishes and mentioning Death, Books, and Tea.
I'll pick my favourite, judging on originality, creativity (for graphics and things) and any punning ability (for all things).

Entries close 12 February. Good luck!<


  1. Oh my goodness, I'd definitely be visiting your cafe! Right now my bookish wish would be that George R R Martin would finish The Winds of Winter, I've been waiting so long! :-)

  2. This is the coolest post :D There should be a whole chain of cafes like this!


Thanks for taking time to read this!
Comments are much loved.
