Girls Made of Snow and Glass is a masterfully written spin on the tale of Snow White. This is a story of how the lives of the queen and the princess, a mother and a daughter, are less perfect than they seem.
Some books take you by surprise. Heartless by Marissa Meyer was one such book for me. The story line is full of magic and marvel, danger and chaos, as one would expect from any tale from Wonderland. Meyer does the whimsical world justice and pays enough tribute while spinning her own narrative.
Anyone who follows me on Bookstagram knows how happy it makes me to support authors and small businesses. Tristen Willis happens to be both — a debut author, as well as the owner of Burning Pages Candles (a small bookish candle company). I was so thrilled when I received a message from her regarding reading and reviewing an e-ARC of her novel, The Genesi Code. So, I loved the synopsis of The Genesi Code! The cover is also really pretty. This is the first book in a duology, although, I think Willis could have easily lengthened this into a trilogy. I did like it, but I had issues with it, too.
The description and fierce cover art are what compelled me to read Mask of Shadows. I am drawn towards Young Adult, Fantasy far more often than not, so it was not a stretch to say that I would likely enjoy this book. This is a book that, for several reasons, though, I believe you need to read with an open mind.
Where do I begin?! I LOVED Roar by Cora Carmack. Based on the description, I felt like this read would be right up my alley, and boy, was I right!
The Dream Keeper’s Daughter combined time travel, history, and romance for a moving and bittersweet fantasy story that sucked me in from the very beginning. Emily Colin, New York Times bestselling author of “The Memory Thief,” has a skill in formulating a compelling narrative.
