    Beautiful and Dramatic

    This standalone book completely subverted my expectations. I was aware it would have some similarities to Snow White, and I assumed it would follow the good princess, evil queen trope. How blissfully wrong I was! This is a beautiful story about a mother-daughter relationship with two compelling and inspiring women overcoming the odds pitted against them. Seriously, this book is allll about the ladies. The writing is gorgeous and well suited to the story. It was split between Queen Mina and Princess Lynet, and the first half for Mina was told through flashback chapters. It was a little odd at first but I quickly fell into the story. There is little by way of traditional action and fight scenes, but this is a relationship drama and I have to say it enthralled me just as much as a book packed with action. The characters are the main reason for this. I adored both Mina and Lynet and felt so sympathetic toward them. Both girls were put in tough situations and tried to make the best of them so they would feel love and be loved. This was especially true with Mina. Her dynamic with Lynet was warm and inspiring, and I loved it just as much as I loved the sweet flirting and affection between Lynet and Nadia. I really did love this book. I found it empowering and beautiful and a fresh take on a classic fairy tale. Even with the circumstances thrown their way, neither Mina nor Lynet refused to give up. There are some strong themes in this book, and I would recommend it to all lovers of books that focus on character relationships over traditional fantasy.

    A Strong Female Cast

    Use the words ‘feminist,’ ‘fairy tale,’ and ‘retelling’ AND YOU KNOW THAT I WILL BE A READER OF THAT BOOK, REGARDLESS OF ANYTHING ELSE. After Frozen (GO SISTER POWER!) the new Cinderella movie came out, I was so disappointed that it wasn’t more… feministic. I expected that Disney to have seen the pure joy that women around the world faced when true love’s kiss didn’t mean Prince Charming’s and to have changed Cinderella, but it was the absolute same as before. *continues weeping* In any case, it was after that that I began STRONGLY BELIEVING that all Fairy Tales SHOULD BE MORE FEMINISTIC so that little girls will grow up knowing how to be strong, independent women. And so when I first read the description of Melissa Bashardoust’s Girls Made of Snow and Glass, I KNEW I WOULD HAVE TO READ IT. And when I got approved to read an advance reader copy, I was OVER THE MOON. Surprisingly, this book took me a really long while to get through. The book was slow paced and filled with introspection and I found myself skipping the long LONG descriptions that came after a few exchanges between characters. Let’s break this down: THINGS I REALLY LIKED: 1. A FEMINISM AND LGBT FILLED FAIRY TALE RETELLING: Did you get all of those words? A FEMINIST. LGBT. FAIRY TALE. RETELLING. Really, can you ask for more? I already read one Snow While retelling earlier this year, Forest of A Thousand Lanterns and I LOVED IT for its Asian cast and anti-heroine but this one WITH MAGICAL POWERS SOUNDED JUST AS GOOD. I was so happy that this book turned the traditional fairy tale into a feminist book because WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THAT? 2. STRONG FEMALE CAST: Most of the book was centred around strong female characters trying to find their way or themselves, and I loved it. Mina (the Queen/ Stepmother), Lynet (the Princess) and even Nadia were all characters that were so well done. THINGS THAT REALLY COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER: 1. THE PACE: THIS BOOK WAS VERY SLOW. It took me days and days to get through it purely because of how utterly slow paced it was. Like I mentioned before – there just wasn’t much HAPPENING in the book and it was filled with introspection from both Lynet and Mina about the SAME THINGS. I found myself skipping parts of the inner monologues as I got to the latter half of the book because they were the SAME and I wasn’t learning any new information from them I honestly felt that if the pace of this book had been different, the book itself would have been so much more enjoyable. 2. DID I ALREADY SAY THE PACE? 3. T-H-E -- P-A-C-E: And that’s it. I absolutely love what Melissa Bashardoust’s book did for feminism in fairy tales considering HOW MUCH we need it, but I would be giving this book a lot higher of a rating if the book was faster paced. 2.75 stars.
