The third instalment in the Once Upon A Con series ticks every box I was hoping for, and more!
I first read Thorn in 2018, as a self-published novel, and I loved its smart, wry, thought-provoking take on one of my favourite fairy tales, The Goose Girl. When I heard it was being reworked for traditional publishing, I was thrilled, and I’m so happy to be able to tell you it’s even better in this form!
A feisty, clever princess who breaks all the rules? Sign me up!
I don’t talk much on here about my interest in fairy tales, but I’ve done a lot of research into them and love to read new collections and retellings. Fairy Tales for Fearless Girls is billed as a collection highlighting strong female characters, and it doesn’t disappoint!
It’s taken me an age to get around to reading Robbergirl – I was offered a copy to review by the author back in February during #reviewpit! – and I’m really regretting not reading it earlier, because it’s gorgeous!
A fairytale theme park gone wrong, an android princess searching for humanity, and the seedy side of making dreams come true? The Kingdom is a brilliant mash up of sci-fi and fantasy that’ll get you thinking for sure.
A middle grade retelling of Cinderella with a sassy magical heroine, a ridiculous talking dog, and a fairy godmother named Brian? It’s a recipe for a rather madcap adventure!
I was instantly sold on this novella the moment I heard about it – creepy English folklore and queer romance is basically my ideal read. I was thrilled to be approved for it on NetGalley, and I already know I’m going to need a hard copy!
I love fairy tales, especially when they focus on female characters, and especially when they inspire some absolutely beautiful bindings, so I leapt at the chance to get on the blog tour for The Silver Moon Storybook, which ticks all of these boxes!
I love a good retelling, and I’m a real softie for one that tries to rehabilitate traditional villains. Add that to my interest in the Ugly Sisters (my thesis topic looked at their history from Cupid and Psyche onwards!), and I really couldn’t resist Stepsister…
