Goodreads Summary
Summer, 1518. A strange sickness sweeps through Strasbourg: women dance in the streets, some until they fall down dead. As rumors of witchcraft spread, suspicion turns toward Lavinia and her family, and Lavinia may have to do the unimaginable to save herself and everyone she loves.

Five centuries later, a pair of red shoes seal to Rosella Oliva’s feet, making her dance uncontrollably. They draw her toward a boy who knows the dancing fever’s history better than anyone: Emil, whose family was blamed for the fever five hundred years ago. But there’s more to what happened in 1518 than even Emil knows, and discovering the truth may decide whether Rosella survives the red shoes.

Top Ten Tuesday: Romantic Book Quotes

Some quotes have been spotlighted before, but I’m choosing to spotlight them again because of how they make me feel.

My memory is a fickle sometimes. Over the years I’ve read quite a few books and it is hard to remember everything that happens in them. Sometimes they even overlap, which makes things even more confusing. I’ve also noticed that I tend to associate certain books with the emotional reaction I had instead of the actual content. Here’s a list of the books I loved but can’t remember much about.
