Not in a YA mood at the moment but YA Historical Fiction just hits differently...
Fangirling so hard at this reference! Only one of my favourite Shakespeare plays!! 💕
This spoke to me on spiritual levels as a kid and to this day... still does!
I don‘t think I‘ll ever tire of this childhood gem!
Despite some offensive classism and racism due to this book being a product of its time, the strong character of Sara and the influence she had on me as a child holds true. Sara Crewe taught me boundless imagination, unfaltering optimism, resilient diligence, and constant selflessness.
The magic of childhood imagination need never fade as we age! That is one message I hope to remember.
A screenshot of my snapchat story since I don‘t have the mental capacity to write a coherent review at the moment.
I loved everything about this when I was 7 or 8 and at 17 I still love it as much. The ability of books like this to transcend time and spread touching messages and live close to hearts is an ability that continues to astound me as I progress on my bookish journey.
So much appreciation right now. Definitely recommend!
This was okay!
Very atmospheric and a beautiful writing style but honestly, found myself skimming over it a lot as not enough was happening to keep me invested in the story. It is relatively short which probably plays a big part in why I bothered to finish it.
My lack of immense enjoyment may be due to me not being in the mood for historical fiction at the moment. I‘m a big mood reader!
I don‘t know if you can hear me through the sobbing but I really really really really loved this. Read it.
More coherent review coming soon... ‘soon‘ being when I can form a sentence to explain how I feel about this beauty...
THIS WAS SO COOL. Worked wonders for my reading slump!
This was rather difficult for me to stay engaged with due to this being my first time properly interacting with complex Greek mythology, but I‘m glad I hung in there because this just got more and more fascinating to me. I cannot wait to read The Song of Achilles and get more into mythology.
Brilliant, disturbing, scary, yet moving exploration of sisterly love, troubled families, murder, revenge, and abuse.
The format of this (two timelines and perspectives) was highly effective in keeping me engaged and made this work really well as an audiobook.
Sadie is a truly fascinating character and the slow reveal of information added so many layers to this seemingly simple plot: find Mattie‘s killer and kill him.
Incredible! An emotional rollercoaster...
I adored the girl power in this! Lola, Enne and Grace FTW.
I got frustrated with Levi in this because of his selfishness and ambition, but the character growth in this is insane.
And can I say... Grace is so damn cool.
I did get a little confused with everyone‘s motives and assignments but I think it‘s because I listened to this on audible and I really shouldn‘t for complex, political stories :‘)
