Welcome to day 27 of the challenge from Books and Cupcakes! Today’s theme is “Witches’ Brew”

Witches. So much can be said for witches. They have appeared in literature for a very long time dating back to ancient folktales and lore. However, for today’s prompt, I’m going to introduce you to Susan Carroll’s The Dark Queen.

This story is a mishmash of genres: Historical Fiction, Fantasy, and Romance. For that reason, it is the perfect book to curl up and read with a cup of tea or chocolate, but also why it gets so many different reviews. If you enjoy fluffy romance mixed with dark magic and historical evil queens of France, you should give it a read!

Hello everyone! I'm a 30-year old Middle School science teacher, which gets all kinds of reactions. When I'm not teaching, I'm either writing, playing video games, practicing violin, drawing, or reading. I've spent many hours hiking in the woods and have been known to stargaze. I live in Maryland with my awesome, supportive, and loving husband and although we don't have kids yet, my 100+ students keep me busy.
