I was not expecting that ending! Shit got real, and changed what was a fairly pleasant but simple tale into an exciting retelling!
Really enjoyed this one, yes it‘s not really feminist as the girls don‘t really get any benefits or any say do they 🤷♀️ thoughts of what it is like to be totally powerless.
This is my first Barker, maybe I‘ll get to the Regeneration trilogy now that‘s been on my tbr forever.
Congrats @Megabooks for the huge milestone! #25etsy My reading has been hit or miss this summer but the clear favorite was Circe. I worried it wouldn‘t live up to the hype but it exceeded expectations!
Can't. Wait. 😏
I really enjoyed this! It makes the Queen more human and really tells us how she ended up the way she did. It's a sad story unfolding for generations. At a certain point you really want to tell her to grow the fack up though and my sympathy was down to nothing. Looking forward to continuing with this series! #teamnosleep #fairestofall #disney #threesisters
I am a self-proclaimed hater of fairy tale retellings. So if I'm saying this is amazing then you'll probably find it even more so if you like these types of stories. I am definitely going to be picking up the second book upon it's release! #TeamRhen
Soniah Kamal's Unmarriageable opens with protagonist Alys teaching a class of girls in Pakistan about a key phrase from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. From that moment, I loved this book. Kamal retells Austen's classic story, set in the early 2000s in Pakistan. (continued in comments)
This book was a wonderful introduction to poetry. It handled serious topics that pertain to other young women and it shows the depths of those problems.
It also dealt with feminism, and as a conservative, I was skeptical. But this book handled feminism in a meaningful way, not annoying or shoved down my throat.
I am so happy I finally had the courage to pick up this book and give it a read.
