Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

The synopsis stated that the pages within held "a feminist story," which was something I could get behind. I was so eager to read about two badass babes taking over a kingdom. Summary Lynet is a… Continue reading Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy

I had been eyeing up this book since I saw we had it in the library. I know I shouldn’t judge books by their covers, but I usually do. I was instantly drawn to this mysterious-looking book with the black-and-white forest on the cover. The Creeping looked so wonderfully creepy. This story takes place in… Continue reading The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy
