Ally and May‘s mother, Elizabeth isn‘t just an #IcePrincess, she‘s the Ice Queen! Never have I read about a mom who manipulates, mentally abuse and neglects her children in such a way, while consealing it all in a presentable and charitable front. I really detest her, but I guess that‘s what makes her a great literary character.

LeahBergen I really must try Sarah Moss! 9mo
Kalalalatja @LeahBergen yes! I really think you will like her books 👍 9mo
Moray_Reads She's a despicable character. The cruelty and the self-righteousness 😠 9mo

Billypar These sound like the kind of books where you find yourself shouting at the pages- cruelty against children is tough to take. I'm sure she makes a good villain to say the least! 9mo
Cinfhen Stunning covers!!! 9mo
Kalalalatja @Moray_Reads she is the biggest martyr, and I can‘t deal with it 🙄 @Billypar definitely! I was so angry and sad on behalf of the kids/teens/adults, since she acts this way all through their childhood and into their adulthood 9mo
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen they certainly are! 👌 9mo
ephemeralwaltz Pretty! 8mo

I have not read this book, but I did see the movie. One of the most beautiful scenes takes place in the boyhood home of Yuri Zhivago (played by Omar Sharif). It is covered in ice. Yuri has gone there to escape the Russian Revolution with his lover, Lara, played by the beautiful, Julie Christie. #iceprincess #nofemmeber

Liatrek Love this movie❤️and the music 😍😍 I really need to read the book. 9mo
DivineDiana @Liatrek Yes! Yes! And Yes! ❤️ 9mo
Billypar Yeah, same for me- I agree though, movie was excellent! 9mo

Susanita One of my favorite movies! I enjoyed the book too, but be advised they spend a loooong time on the train ride from Moscow to the countryside. 9mo
Cinfhen Such an awesome choice 😃 9mo
DivineDiana @Susanita Thanks for the warning! 👍🏻 9mo
Crazeedi Read the book as a teenager, also saw movie, it is one of my forever faves, love Omar sharif 💜 9mo

I quite enjoyed Cinder and Scarlet; we‘ll see if I eventually get to Winter, which is a reimagining of Snow White. #IcePrincess #NoFemmeber

SW-T I liked the whole series, but Cinder was my favorite 😊 9mo

DAY 2: Miranda Priestly is a total #IcePrincess, or more accurately, an ice queen. ❄️👸🏼 Still, you can‘t help be warm up to her just a teeny bit. I like this one, but I think I prefer the movie.

AlaMich My favorite costume this Halloween was that of a mom and daughter: daughter (7-8) was a Dalmatian and mom was Cruella de Vil. She had a b/w wig and everything. 😂 9mo
britt_brooke @AlaMich I love that idea. How cute! 9mo
Billypar Definitely- she could probably freeze other ice princesses (and then drop her coat on them) 🌬️ 👠👠 9mo
Cinfhen Perfect 9mo

Empress Alix of Hesse was the ultimate Ice Queen in my eyes, which would make her daughters the #iceprincess(es).

I had a fascination with the Romanovs as a young adult and read everything I could get my hands on. I think it was mostly due to the brutal way in which their lives ended, but also because there was a question for many years as to whether or not Anastasia survived, a possibility that I first became aware of on Unsolved Mysteries. ⬇️

Reviewsbylola This will shock none of you to know that UM was my very favorite show as a kid. I loved the idea that Anastasia had escaped and lived a full life. My interest deflated a bit when DNA proved that Anastasia did in fact die on that horrible night. #nofemmeber (edited) 9mo
Birdsong28 Have you read any of Gill Paul? it's fiction but her last two have been on this subject one is 9mo

LeahBergen My fascination with the Romanovs took the same arc as yours. 😆 9mo
Reviewsbylola No I have not. I think the only two fictional books I‘ve read about The Romanovs are The Kitchen Boy and the tagged book. I‘ll look into those! @Birdsong28 9mo
Reviewsbylola Right?! 😂 @LeahBergen I would be into an in-depth non fic tho on the polish factory worker and how she came to impersonate Anastasia so convincingly. @LeahBergen 9mo
Birdsong28 @Reviewsbylola Thanks for your suggestion 😀📚📖 9mo
LeahBergen @Reviewsbylola Right? She didn‘t even look like Anastasia (I examined all the photos obsessively in those earlier bios 😂😂). I would definitely read a book about her! 👍🏻 9mo
Billypar Oh man....an Unsolved Mysteries about the disappearance of Anastasia?! 😯😆 I loved that show, but sometimes they came out randomly with a very high profile mystery/conspiracy theory which was always weird. I remember they did one for Kurt Cobain's death possibly being murder, and even my child brain was like 'now that doesn't seem very plausible' 😋 9mo
BiblioLitten I loved the book! 9mo
Cinfhen I‘m pretty sure I saw a Disney film about Anastasia 😜 9mo
Mdargusch Such a tragic story that I can‘t get enough of. 😢 9mo

Smilla is an idiosyncratic #IcePrincess in this cool, chilly thriller that evokes a great sense of place. I've held on to this unremarkable movie tie-in paperback since I first read it sometime in the late 90s. #NoFemmeber

@Billypar @Cinfhen

Cinfhen I‘ve been meaning to the read this one for a long time! Thanks for the reminder 9mo
batsy I loved it @Cinfhen but it seems to be a bit of a Marmite book 😁 9mo
Cinfhen Yea, I‘ve heard 😉 9mo

TrishB I have it on the tbr too ! 9mo
Booksnchill Loved it and loved the movie but you cannot buy the movie here☹️ 9mo
Reviewsbylola Good pick! I bailed on this one. It was sooooo boring imo. 9mo
Reviewsbylola Now I still have to read a Nordic noir for pop sugar. ☹️ 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @Reviewsbylola I can‘t remember if I bailed or finished but I found this book to be a big 😴 too. 9mo
Lcsmcat I read it in the late 90‘s, going in with absolutely no expectations- it was in a bag of books I got from a friend who was moving overseas- and I was fascinated by it. 9mo
erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve never heard of this, though the author is familiar. However, I‘m busy looking at the remarkable and esoteric titles in the background. 😉 9mo
Cathythoughts I must try to get this one on kindle ... I did get the book years ago but the print was sooo tiny I couldn‘t cope ... it‘s meant to be very good ??! 9mo
gradcat Ohhh, this brings back fond memories! I loved this book, and I read it with a group of girlfriends while we were in grad school—such a wonderful diversion! 9mo
gradcat @batsy What is a Marmite book? 9mo
batsy @TrishB 👍🏽 9mo
batsy @Booksnchill Me too, I loved the movie! That's too bad that you can't easily buy it :( 9mo
batsy @Reviewsbylola Haha! 😆 I hope you're able to find a Nordic noir that you enjoy... It's a genre that intrigues me because of the doom and gloom (lol) but I haven't really read much; everything's on my TBR! 9mo
batsy @Lcsmcat That was my experience with it, too—zero expectations & just found it so intriguing! 9mo
batsy @erzascarletbookgasm 😁 This one I bought in the 90s still has the price tag from MPH—the days when a paperback was RM20! 9mo
batsy @Cathythoughts I thought it was, Cathy! Look forward to your thoughts if you give it a try. 9mo
batsy @gradcat Such a good read! I borrowed the term "marmite book" from @TrishB ? Marmite is a British food/sandwich spread that divides opinions—people seem to either love it or hate it! 9mo
Cathythoughts Just got it on kindle !! I‘ll get to it ...... 😊 9mo
Billypar Ah, alliterations in titles- very ssspecial 😀 9mo
gradcat @batsy Oh, I get it now! I fear I‘m on the “hate it” side when it comes to marmite...all I can say is “Yucko!” 🤢 9mo
