Book Review | Beast

There are plenty of young adult fairy tale retellings out there. So many that I doubt I’d ever be able to read them all if I tried. But when I first saw Brie Spangler’s debut novel, Beast, I was intrigued. Not only is it a retelling of what is perhaps my favorite fairy tale – Beauty and […]

Book Review | Worlds of Ink and Shadow

Some of my favorite classic novels were written by the Brontë sisters. So when I saw that there was going to be a new young adult fantasy novel about the Brontë siblings – Charlotte, Emily, Anne, and their brother Bramwell – I was intrigued. Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley takes readers inside the imaginations […]
