Ahhh second day of the readalong and we're all already hooked *heart eyes*! Loved your comments on yesterday's post and all your guesses about what might happen.
-S P O I L E R S-
Okay I loved it when Ammi came flirted with Maia and she first didn't understand it? she kept wondering why Ammi was being so earnest and kind and i was shouting into the book "Oh Maia! Open your eyes! You have an admirer" <3 And later I'm so glad Ammi helped Maia with the spices for her dyes.
I am SO curious about the Emperor! Something is amiss and I don't quite like it. The way Maia was pulled towards him at the garden was definitely unnatural and I need to know more. Why is everyone so enamored by him?
OKAY SO! LORD ENCHANTER EDAN! I. Love. Sassy Characters. I just can't help it!
I like that he wants to help Maia. But the moment he guesses who she was, I did worry for a few seconds. And I wonder why the scissors made the girl in the shawl resemble Maia. As Edan points out, she's not the same but the resemblance is there. Was it maybe one of her ancestors? Why did the scissors draw the girl on the shawl?
And I'm sure someone took started the drinking contest and got all the tailors drunk. I suspect Yindi or Norbu. Maia is right to be suspicious!
OKAY LADY SARNAI SURE IS SADISTIC. Suddenly turning up and asking for slippers made of the most ridiculous materials! But also her jibe at Edan for liking "Keton" Maia, I totally laughed and I liked how he was not surprised or anything, and answered calmly.
And okay I agree with Edan, I wish she'd use the scissors. Carefully, but still use them. I was kind of flabbergasted when she went buried them. But then oh she saw Lady Sarnai and I understand how she's feeling. I still don't like how cruel she is to the tailors; it's not their fault she's here. but like Maia I do pity her now.
