Graceling, by Kristin Cashore

Graceling is a beach-read of a fantasy novel. There’s romance, adventure and a big bad bully. I have to review it for what it was, as it’s no work of literature. It is, however, fun, a little trashy and a quick read. I love the ballsy, over-the-top-strong female lead, and the magic system in this book involves an interesting concept. Overall, if you’re looking for something fun, fantasy and a little light and goofy, I’d recommend this book.
