Waiting on Wednesday: Secondhand Charm by Julie Berry



SECONDHAND CHARM BY JULIE BERRY
Published October 12th 2010 by Bloomsbury USA Children's Books

In a secluded village, magic sparkles on the edges of the forest. There, a young girl named Evie possesses unusually strong powers as a healer. A gypsy's charms—no more than trinkets when worn by others—are remarkably potent when Evie ties them around her neck. Her talents, and charms, have not escaped the notice of the shy stonemason's apprentice. But Evie wants more than a quiet village and the boy next-door. When the young king's carriage arrives one day, and his footman has fallen ill, Evie might just get her chance after all . . .

Berry's debut novel garnered glowing reviews and strong sales—and now she's done it again with a beautifully woven tale to keep all readers, young and old, absolutely charmed.

I love vampires, werewolves, faeries, etc but it' s also nice to have some other books coming out that are completely different. I love the themes of gypsy magic. And sounds like there's a love triangle too. Even better!

This book looks great :) I love fantasy books, and I've never read anything about gypsy magic either - that I can recall, anyway. Love triangles do rock. the cover is really pretty, too.

Here's what I'm waiting for :)

I love gypsies - especially ever since Johnny Depp looked like one in the movie Chocolate! Sounds like a fun read!

I really enjoyed Berry's first book, The Amaranth Enchantment, so I've been looking forward to this one for a bit now.
