Girl, Serpent, Thorn
Girl, Serpent, Thorn | Melissa Bashardoust
A captivating and utterly original fairy tale about a girl cursed to be poisonous to the touch, and who discovers what power might lie in such a curse... There was and there was not, as all stories begin, a princess cursed to be poisonous to the touch. But for Soraya, who has lived her life hidden away, apart from her family, safe only in her gardens, its not just a story. As the day of her twin brothers wedding approaches, Soraya must decide if shes willing to step outside of the shadows for the first time. Below in the dungeon is a demon who holds knowledge that she craves, the answer to her freedom. And above is a young man who isnt afraid of her, whose eyes linger not with fear, but with an understanding of who she is beneath the poison. Soraya thought she knew her place in the world, but when her choices lead to consequences she never imagined, she begins to question who she is and who she is becoming...human or demon. Princess or monster.

Is it possible for a book to have the feeling of a cheesy high school romance novel, without cheese, or a high school in it? It was good. Not great. But good. Meh. 🤔

#NewYearWhoDis list by @Clare-Dragonfly !!
I‘ve already read(and adored!) Red White and Royal blue… so I‘ll start with Girl, Serpent, Thorn! ♥️ And try out Piranesi which seems to be on a lot of peoples‘ fave list. Also I must‘ve looked up winterkeep a million times. Every time I see the cover it reminds me I need to stop borrowing Graceling from the library and actually read it. Maybe it‘ll happen this year 😇

magyklyXdelish Girl serpent thorn is one of my faves I‘ve read this year, by far! And Piranesi was strange but wonderful and that one I say go in as blind as you can ♥️ 2mo
magyklyXdelish Also Burn Our Bodies Down I lived as well!! Wonderful list!! 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly I agree with everything @magyklyXdelish said! 😁 And yes, definitely read Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue before Winterkeep. They‘re all so good! Also if you want to read Burn Our Bodies down but are concerned about any triggers, let me know and I can help you out with that. 2mo

This was sort of between a Pick and So-so for me… I didn‘t like it as well as the author‘s first book. I did like that the characters were all sort of morally ambiguous and I liked the idea of a poisonous girl - definitely a reference to Rappaccini‘s Daughter. But there was never a point where I felt fully invested in the story.

This is between a pick and a so-so. I think the story was fresh, I just had heard such amazing things about the story and was underwhelmed. It wasn‘t bad just not what I was expecting. I may revisit later on and try to appreciate it more. Has some queer rep which was awesome! #bookspinbingo

Absolutely amazing. 110% would read again. Unlike some of the other lesbian fantasies I enjoy reading this one has a content, happy and peaceful ending. With the two girls both inhuman together find their calling. Soraya's family rule the kingdom and she takes over as leader of the div‘s. Soraya finds her powers to be her friend turned into the controller of her poison and the thorns her friends. Over all would recommend for all teens, great book.

This book is a series of 'liar revealed' tropes. It was a very easy read but unfortunately you could tell what was going to happen as it came up. Biggest issue are the characters of the royal family, honestly.
I rated it 3/5 cause it was ok, just nothing intense. I do love the concept of a poisonous girl.
Wish it had been longer to develop characters and plot more.

YES… I LOVED this book!!! So many amazing twists, and such a strong, relatable, powerful main character. I loved and understood her anger and her loyalty. I appreciated the complexity of the characters around her, especially her mother and Parvaneh. And this might be my favorite depiction of a bisexual main character in all of YA fantasy!

🌻 Yes but I‘m extremely picky with them. I find YA has way too many series and I just refuse to invest my time in a series unless it‘s really amazing. So usually I make sure it‘s standalone.

🌻 Girl, Serpent, Thorn was absolutely perfect. One of the best books I‘ve read in a while.

🌻 Teen or under drinking age characters with plots that never get *too* dark. Some toe the line but few cross it.

Wow to say I loved this is a massive understatement. This truly felt like a brand new fairytale but one that doesn‘t blame the princess for trusting the wrong people, but instead places the blame on those who broke their trust. I loved Soraya and her quest to free herself from feeling like a monster. Also I love the queer romance but have to say as a Bi woman I felt totally seen. I loved that it normalized her attraction to a man and a woman. ⬇️⬇️

magyklyXdelish I have so so so much more I could say about this book but I‘ll end this by saying it‘s probably my favorite YA/Fantasy I‘ve read in such a long time. I know I‘ll be reading this again in the future. 10mo

It's a YA fantasy, set in a world inspired by Persian folklore, about a girl whose touch is poison. And y'all, it is brilliant -- I loved the author's games with fairy tales and her thoughts on storytelling and truth-telling and the stories we owe one another (and ourselves). I hope author Bashardoust has more stories planned for this world because I will buy them.

(Amigurumi by my nephew who also is brilliant.)

A fantasy, YA, LGBT and romance too! Soraya is a princess but if she touches anyone she would kill them as she is cursed with poison. On her twin brother's wedding she finds out a demon is in the dungeon who might know how to rid her of this curse. So starts a journey that will change everything. I didn't love this book, but it is an enjoyable read! #books

An atmospheric retelling of tales from Persian culture. Girl, Serpent, Thorn begins as many retellings do, with a neglected princess hidden away from the world. But the fact that Soraya‘s skin is poisonous to the touch gives the story a unique twist. As the princess begins to see her condition not as a curse but as a source of power, the story really becomes interesting.

Demons & a neglectful god; (cont. in comments)

Endowarrior21 hidden passageways & the forbidden place of the dead are all elements in this story. Bashardoust explores themes of good vs. evil, hidden evil, and what turns a person toward darkness.

Girl, Serpent, Thorn will appeal to fans of retellings and feminists who cheer for the princess to save both herself and those around her. @CareBear this will go with hubby tomorrow or Thursday

Soraya struggles with decisions and with self-acceptance. While the plot was good, I quickly grew tired of Soraya's internal self-deprecation and her fight for her place amongst her family. I wanted her to embrace her power! I also got The Darkling vibes from Azad and was disappointed (yet again) by the lack of romance between them. I wouldn't recommend this or read it again, but it wasn't bad.

Soraya had an agreement with the div where it asked for a Simorgh's feather and was hesitant to follow, but she was too late to go back. She finds herself in a temple that reminded her about a priest who knew about her curse and told her horrible things, like her belonging in a place with monsters, although he's one of the two people that knows where the feather is. She wonders where he is, and if he can help her to find the feather.

The author uses terms that are descriptive, but detailed, although when the author describes a certain scenario. It's like you can feel and see through the words, like this part“the scalloped waves along her chin and jaw, whorls on her cheeks, stripes along her forehead, like a moth‘s wings were laid out over her skin.“and “the div‘s eyes were too bright, too piercing.“ You can portray the character's facial features and their actions.

I actually ended up really liking this book. I was very hesitant before I started it because it‘s technically YA. It didn‘t feel YA as I got into it. The author got her inspiration from Persian mythology/history, which was a fresh take on fantasy.

It took me a bit to get into this book, but as I got further in I became engrossed. I couldn‘t get into the author‘s first book, but I‘m glad I read this one.

Finished this yesterday as an audio. I really enjoyed it. It was also a quick read. The one thing I'd say was a so-so for me was that there was so much betrayal. It seemed every chapter was another one, back and forth from multiple sides. Just seemed maybe a bit much considering how short the story seemed. But maybe that was just me. I still enjoyed it.

However beyond the eerily similar covers and titles these books have nothing in common! They may look like they belong to the same series but they couldn't be more different.
Set somewhere in the Middle East this modern fairytale borrows from Persian mythology and feels both familiar and fresh.

This book was just ok. I really wanted to love it because the concept was amazing. In the beginning I was really liking it but about half way through I started to like it less and less until I realized that the only thing I cared about was the romance. I did not care for the main character and the villain was just annoying honestly. The romance had epic chemistry and was the only reason this book did not get a lower rating from me.

Beautiful book! I don‘t really understand the low Litsy rating on it. Wonderfully written, and sweeps you into another world. It has a very “fairy tale” feel to it, which makes sense, since it draws a lot from Persian fairytales and myths, as well as one of my favorite short stories, “Rappaccini‘s Daughter”.

janeycanuck Whoa, that cover! 😍 1y
