This book did and did not go where I think it was going to go. Some of the plot lines were predictable, but others I didn't figure out before they were revealed. This is one of those rare books that is written probably for a juvenile audience, but never feels juvenile. I also liked the sort of Dungeons and Dragons shout out (although in the novel it is called a benign "Odd Trails.") ( )

Milo lives in an inn, with his adoptive parents, the Pines. They are looking forward to a quiet Christmas, when a series of unexpected guests arrive, each with stories relating to the mysterious inn, a smuggler's place. Milo was a good lead character: honest, hardworking, but unsure of himself. Help arrives, including Meddy, who helps him dig into his imagination through a role playing game, through which he gains self confidence by to solving the mysteries of the guests' stolen belongings and ultimately, the mystery behind the house itself. There is some town folklore, a cast of quirky guests at the inn, and a good plot twist at the end. I also enjoyed the endnote by the author about adoption. My only complaint was I found it slow at times. ( )

children's fantasy fiction (treasure hunt quest with lots of odd mysterious characters). This one looks like a good adventure, and would probably make a good read aloud, depending on your audience.

This book had been on my list for a long time and I have many GR friends who’ve enjoyed it so I decided to read it and stick with it no matter how I felt about it. I’d been on a streak of reading nothing but great books right for my mood at the time but recently I’d been having a hard time finding a book I wanted to read. Either they didn’t feel worth picking up or I started them and could feel no enthusiasm for continuing. I’m in the mood for certain books not yet available. I know there must be many books that would be working for me but I haven’t been able to think of them.

I enjoyed this book but until I was far into the book it did not call to me and it was a chore to pick it up. That was my mood more than the book. Once again I found it harder to want to start reading because of the very long chapters (maybe 30 minutes each, perfect for bedtime stories but not for me these days.) I did end up enjoying it though and I’m really glad I read it.

I loved the humor.

The foods & drinks described was scrumptious, especially all the hot chocolate.

I hated the violence. Gun violence which seemed a tad out of place. I wish the bad guy(s) had been less villainous. It seemed a bit over the top, especially for this story.

I knew that there was a supernatural aspect to this book but until the reveal I couldn’t quite figure out precisely what it was. There were certainly abundant clues but they went right over my head. It’s tempting to reread it (someday) to know from the beginning what is going on.

I found the game tedious at times and fun at times.

This is a great book about the adoption and I found the author’s note in the back of the book affecting.

Even though I was enjoying the book, I didn’t think I’d be interested in reading any sequel and I probably won’t, but I found the last two chapters touching and fun and I could be being interested enough to read beyond this book.

This would be a good book to read around Christmastime.

For much of the book I thought it would be a 3 star book but it ended up being a solid 4 star worthy book for me. ( )

Greenglass House was one of my many book purchases last year when I had a couple of gift cards and a long wishlist. Though I had wanted to read it for quite some time, I saved it for the Winter because just look at that cover! I have to admit, while the synopsis is what sold me on this book, the cover art is what initially caught my interest. I was not disappointed.

This is the perfect book for curling up under a blanket with an endless mug of hot chocolate, especially if you have a fireplace, and I'm not sure there's a better book out there to read during the Winter. I read it over the Holidays since the story takes place over Milo's Winter break from school, and I would have finished it much more quickly if life hadn't gotten in the way.

I will definitely be checking out Kate Milford's other books. If you're looking for a fun Winter read, give Greenglass House a try. ( )

An abundantly diverting mystery seasoned with mild fantasy and just a little steampunk.

The legends and folktales Milford (The Broken Lands) creates add to Nagspeake’s charm and gently prepare the ground for a fantasy twist.

To my family, near and far, with thanks
for all my childhood christmases;

to Raegan, Hadley, Phero, Oliver, Girffin,
and the one we call Amelia, adventurer all;

To Emma, who twisted my arm and
made me fix the things that didn't work;

And to Grandmoo, because it's her favorite.

There is a right way to do things and a wrong way, if you're going to run a hotel in a smuggler's town.
