How Audiobooks Grew the Reader in Me
I was 7-years old and I did not want to read. I knew that I was able to but I felt that something was missing. I come from a tradition of voices: pirate growls, southern drawls, prim ladies, and bold animals. My mother was a drama major in college and used her talent to engage and enchant my sister and me every night as she read or made up stories for us. Every word had energy and intention; the sleepy house made me long for naptime and the adventurous cowboy had me jumping all over my room. But I was never able to get the stories to come to life in the same way when reading by myself.
Luscious, vibrant, and utterly captivating, Roshani Chokshi's A Crown of Wishes is an incredible follow up to The Star-Touched Queen. Gauri, known by her people as the Jewel of Bharata, longs to redeem herself and save her kingdom from the tyranny of her brother. Vikram, the sly prince of a rival kingdom, finds himself unwilling to accept his life as a puppet ruler. Faced with the chance to fulfill both their destinies, the unlikely pair must travel to the Otherworld where they will compete together in the Tournament of Wishes. For Gauri and Vikram, every turn presents a new and poisonous danger. A must-read for any lover of stories, A Crown of Wishes is a spellbinding and ferocious fairy tale brimming with color and magic. - Eliza
