Review: The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix

I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I have little knowledge of these myths so I am super excited to dive into this tale. Below Lisa has taken part in a Q&A and her answers make me more excited to read this book! Also don’t forget to check out the other stops on this tour and find out more about The Forest of Ghosts and Bones! Were there any real life inspirations for the castle at the centre of the story? When I was young, we lived very close to Nanstein Castle in Germany. I have so many fond memories of exploring that place, and one particular memory when it was raining.
