I love books, I love book blogging, and I hate GoodReads. Check out my blog at http://gossamerobsessions.blogspot.ca.
The Plot: In a politically-fractured landscape ruled by tyrannical guilds and unions, even the written word is controlled - if it doesn't have the stamp of the Stationers' Guild on it, it gets thrown in the fire (and those who've read it thrown in prison). As a result, our impetuous, ambitious heroine Mosca Mye steals, borrows, and hordes words in a world where people fear reading. When she helps rescue a silver-tongued rascal named Eponymous Clent from her village's stocks, she follows him to increase her vocabulary and also to have an adventure of her own.
