"People say that life is the thing, but I prefer reading." - Logan Pearsall Smith.

The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Mary Russell, #1)

The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Mary Russell, #1) - Laurie R. King I loved the story. But had I been browsing through my local bookstore and happened upon this book, I would I skimmed right over it. Why? Well, because of the stupid cover, of course! Who is that lady suppose to be, anyways? She looks to be in her 50's or 60's, and in this book, Mary Russell is still a teenager! Oh! Maybe it's suppose to be Ms. Hudson! Although, I don't know why she would be on the cover... I really do hate it when publishers choose to put people on their book covers and don't even attempt to make them into the same likeness as a character in the book...

The story is lovely...
