Book Review: The Folk Keeper

This book was amazing. It's told from the point-of-view of Corin/Corinna as written in her diary. Corinna a girl pretending to be a boy (Corin) who is a "folk keeper". It's her job to keep the "folk" (or faeries) from spoiling the milk, killing the livestock, and otherwise causing mischief. It started a little slow, and while it's not a book I would call "exciting" it is very interesting and definitely worth the read. It's obvious from chapter one that Corinna is no ordinary girl. She has gifts, and we learn what they are as the story progresses, and she finds out how extraordinary she is.

While googling for a picture of the cover, I found the cover below. I have the top cover, but I think I want the bottom cover.

On the TBR it goes! I like the occasional slow, folksy story.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you're able to play along in the contest!

Isn't it interesting about the two covers of the book. I always think it's fascinating when books get two covers upon a reprint. Makes me wonder why the publishers chose to do it.

I think I prefer the first cover it has a more mysterious mystical feel to me :)
