Last month I read The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson, last week I made the delicious Honey-Coconut Scone recipe featured in the back of the book, and today I am sharing that recipe with you. If you happened to have missed my review of The Girl and Fire and Thorns let me just say I loved that book.
You can find that review here.
I don’t read fantasy often. I usually get lost in all the details, but I didn’t get lost or confused, not even once. This quickly became one of my favorite reads of all time. What stood out was the writing, the world and the characters, especially the main protagonist Elisa. I loved Elisa because she was curvy and she loved food. I think the two of us could definitely bond over these scones. They are delicious!
And just in case you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend you pick it up!
Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness. Elisa is the chosen one. But she is also the younger of two princesses. The one who has never done anything remarkable, and can’t see how she ever will. Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs her to be the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.
And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies, seething with dark magic, are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.
Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young. Most of the chosen do. (Goodreads)
