really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy-sf, reviewed
Read from May 19 to July 04, 2015

This was a fairy tale redux that reminded me quite a bit of a book I read several years back, at the recommendation of my friend Myron, named Mythago Wood. It appears at first to be solidly YA, but veers into some dark and gruesome territory at times.

My favorite part about it was that it had a very solid grounding, and heart, in the way that the best fantasies do...and I'm being vague to avoid spoilers...but it was quite reminiscent of Labyrinth in that respect, actually.

Note from before:

My friend and fellow book nut from work, Liz, and I have been trading books back and forth, which threw me off my 'reading books by pattern' thing.
