I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting retellings that are a little different from the standard fairy tale retellings we see so often in YA, so I was immediately drawn to The Guinevere Deception. I had never read anything by Kiersten White before, so I didn’t quite know what to expect. I ended up really enjoying this book!
Uprooted is a book that I absolutely love and am very thankful for. It’s the book that broke the worst reading slump of my life, which had been carrying on for months. I love it so much, despite its (romance) problems, and I constantly recommend it. You can probably imagine my excitement when I heard about her next novel, Spinning Silver. After months of pining, my copy arrived in the post and I was so thrilled to get reading.
So as I’m sure many of you have realised by now, I am a huge fan of Leigh Bardugo. So it came as no surprise that I felt The Language of Thorns was absolute perfection.
I absolutely adore Neil Gaiman and snapped up a copy of this book in hardback within a month of publication. I'm a huge fan of mythology, but know so little about Norse mythology. This is a great introduction to the world of Thor, Loki, Odin, and the whole host of gods and goddesses that inhabit Asgard that have becoming more and more mainstream.
I knew I had to read this book as soon as I learned about it. A geeky twist on the classic Cinderella story, Geekerella was everything I wanted it to be and more.
