Thursday Tea (July 28): The Star of Kazan

The book: I have a small collection of Eva Ibbotson books and I can’t remember how I acquired it. I do know, however, that The Star of Kazan is the only EI book left in my collection that I haven’t read, and I’m kind of sad about that. However! This means I can go out and buy more Eva Ibbotson books– yay!

Okay, so: The Star of Kazan. I’m 26 pages into it so far, and it’s…well, it’s cute. I know I said I was going to make an effort not to use that word any longer, but I can’t help it. It’s a cute book, okay. I think later there’ll be a mystery and some intrigue and possible some escaping from bad guys, so that’s exciting.

The tea: Ugh, I don’t know what I did wrong, but my Christmas Eve tea tastes horrible today. Maybe it’s expired or something?

Do they go together? The book is set during the spring, but it’s got that cozy, comforting feel to it that Christmastime always gives me. So I do think they go together, actually!

    1. lol, I don’t actually drink alcohol, so I have no whiskey. 😀 It probably would make it taste better, though! I’m more inclined to the chocolate solution, myself.

  1. I don’t remember if I’ve read The Star of Kazan. If I have then I feel cross with myself for not remembering it better, because I remember absolutely zero things about its plot.

    1. Well, I’m not going to say you should run out and find a copy of it RIGHT NOW, but it’s a nice book! The middle was sort of disappointing, but the rest of it was a lot of fun. It’s a good comfort book, I think.
