Warped by Maurissa Guibord

Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.
This really bums me out that I haven't had the time to read this novel. I mean, seriously, this reminds me of Beauty and the Beast (for some reason) and I love that story. Plus, I've heard a few really good things about it and feel like it's one of those under appreciated books. I really need to get to it.

What's been on your shelf too long? 


  1. This book is on my wishlist, it sounds great!
    Here's mine:

  2. I've seen this about on blogs but had never really paid attention to it before. I just read that blurb, and now I want it!!
    This looks magical, and mysterious and I like the sound of the historical aspect too. Plus that cover is gorgeous. Read it soon so I can read your review! (This feature is not good for keeping my wishlist small!)


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
