bookshelves: tolkien, to-read

Brace yourselves. A new Tolkien book is coming. I am ready. I've never been readier for anything in my life.




Who do I need to sell my hypothetical firstborn to in order to get my hands on this book? Cuz I'll do it.




Gondolin was a hidden city of the Elves, founded by Turgon the Wise. One might draw parallels between the Fall of Gondolin and the Fall of Troy.

Then they looked up and could see, and lo! they were at the foot of steep hills, and these hills made a great circle wherein lay a wide plain, and set therein, not rightly at the midmost but rather nearer to that place where they stood, was a great hill with a level top, and upon that summit rose a city in the new light of the morning...

My fictional husband, Glorfindel, will definitely make an appearance, so that's something to be hyped about.
