Elizabeth and Zenobia
Elizabeth and Zenobia | Jessica Miller
10 posts | 12 read | 23 to read
When Elizabeth and her unusual and fearless friend Zenobia arrive at Witheringe House, peculiar things begin to happen.
Especially in the forbidden East Wing.
The flowers and vines of the wallpaper sometimes seem to be alive.
A mirror has a surface like the water of a pond.
And an old book tells a different story after midnight.
Zenobia is thrilled by the strangeness, but Elizabeth is not so bold...
Until she makes a mysterious and terrifying discovery.

This was a quirky novel that almost hit the spot. I still enjoyed it but I wish some answers, particularly about Zenobia, had been answered.

First book of 2018! I read this charming, gothic charmer in one sitting. While I selfishly would have loved it to be longer, it‘s really perfect just the way it is. Lovely start to the reading year!

This was a very cute, thrilling... gothic horror story for children? I would have loved this book as a child (and I loved it now). It has mystery, action, family and friendship, and a strange invisible girl. 4/5⭐️

Elizabeth and Zenobia are inseparable. Light and dark. Timid and brave. Yin and yang. So when Elizabeth‘s father decides to move the family to Witheringe House after Elizabeth‘s mother runs off with an opera singer, of course Zenobia comes along. Miller cleverly creates a world where Elizabeth and Zenobia certainly seem like two independent girls, while at the same time creating this undercurrent of emotion that suggests they are one in the same.

Peddler410 I have an ARC of this that I haven't gotten to yet. 2y
Peddler410 Finally getting to this one. Started tonight as my daughter‘s bedtime read. Any parts I need to be aware of? 2y

I finished this little gem of a story this morning! While I wish it was longer, I really did enjoy the magical element in the story and the mystery involved. But what the heck was Zenobia exactly??

5 🌟✨!! So creepy, so funny, so good. Mirrors and doubles feature brilliantly in this one. Elizabeth and Zenobia are hilariously different. The mystery is creepy, and I couldn't put this down. Highly recommend!!

Not going to lie, this gothic tale *did* freak me out - loved the various plot lines from the mysterious and creepy Witheringe House, to Zenobia's morbid obsessions which Elizabeth begrudgingly endures/indulges, the book which tells a completely different story when read after midnight and all the mentions of how hearing the music from the magic flute affects her fathers temperament. Creepy, addictive, brilliant.

Peddler410 I‘m reading this to my daughter (8) for our bedtime read. Is that a bad idea? 2y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Peddler410, not at all! One of my favourite reads of the year. There just might be a night where you read for longer than you expect 😂 (it has a really good ending) 2y
