Book Review: Jane Steele

Sometimes you just really want to pick up a dark retelling, especially around Halloween. For me, I found the perfect book in Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye. It embodied the grimness of the original while also putting a fresh spin on the tale. Like the heroine of the novel she adores, Jane Steele suffers cruelly at the… Continue reading Book Review: Jane Steele

ARC Review: Spinning Silver

While I did enjoy the overall story, I wasn’t quite as impressed with Naomi Novik’s, Spinning Silver, as I was with her previous novel, Uprooted.
