Ladies and Gentleman,

My literary tastes vary far and wide. I vacillate hither and yon as to what I am sampling when it comes to reading material, so when Sadie Sugarspear fell into my lap, I was mildly hesitant but excited at the same time because it didn't fit into a category. When it was pitched to me as a read I might like, they said it's different but probably my cup of tea...

They were right.

I will tell you now that it may not suit everyone's taste. It is so refreshingly different and out

I got a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review

I am not quite sure I have to emotional aptitude to fully appreciate this little piece of darkness. The beginning is heartbreaking, the pain is almost tangible as Sadie's psyche starts to disintegrate. Then even the fantasy world she finds herself in is hideous. A lot of harsh imagery, but there is a weird sort of beauty in it's ugliness I suppose. It's like a nightmare you never want to find yourself, or anybody in. It made me bone weary after only 50 something pages. But then, books about ...more
