Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 12029 comments Sorry to pop in. Nancy, do you want to sprint in 15 minutes? I really want to. Like really badly!


Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 4907 comments I would like too. Which one?

Dory (fishthatreads) | 377 comments okay...

So overlaying the books we are interested in, it's either Spinning Starlight or Stitching Snow, personally, I'd prefer Stitching Snow because a lot of my goodreads friends preach its greatness!


Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 4907 comments that sounds good to me. when do you want to start?

Dory (fishthatreads) | 377 comments I'm currently in the middle of The Winners Kiss, I don't want to read two books at once and divide my focus, maybe in a few days?

I was really confused starting too. They call the robots drones which makes me think of everyday drones, yet they still have so many tools that it makes me think of something like Iko from The Lunar Chronicles

I DID NOT SEE IT COMING! As soon as he took her I was expecting Stockholm syndrome to start kicking in due to how she acted with him before. I too wonder how she got kidnapped and why. I just found out that she left on her own at nine years old. (Chapter 11)

Dory (fishthatreads) | 377 comments I finished the book last night :) It was nice, still, need to gather my thoughts for a review.

Reply to your comments:

It was pretty seeing them falling in love really fast, and as soon as Dan e knew that Essie was endangered then he lets his emotions fly.

Queen Olivia is so easy to hate. I'm so confused as to why did the king marry her and how did the public let that happen, also what a silly king for not noticing that she wanted to kill Essie/Snow. Also, for Essie being gone for so long, I'm surprised that Olivia didn't have children to secure the throne in her bloodline if Essie never came back.

I was also really sad when they found out Danes father didn't last long. Then again they had no communication with the prisoners and the whole voice stealing thing, sad.

WHAT DID HER FATHER WANT TO DO TO HER?!? Did he rape her as a child? That scene wasn't clear at all. Something with cages was mentioned too and really threw me off.

Them being proposed was really quick, but they did say that the engagement would last really long.

I really enjoyed this book too, it was on my TBR, but the beginning wasn't as interesting and seemed really simple until Dane took her.

I wish there were some examples of her mother's drawings, that would've been sweet. Also, can you remind me how her mother died?


Nancy85 (nancymarie85) | 4907 comments I can't remember. I can't remember if it was mentioned in the book.
