I LOVED this book. It's not often I'm genuinely floored by a plot reveal, but I was so shocked that I almost yelled out loud on my metro commute. I don't think you need to be familiar with Hamlet in order to enjoy this book, but knowing some if the details did make the story more interesting.

This book was heartbreakingly beautiful. And reading the Author's Note afterwards made the story that much more haunting.

I love fairytale retellings! I found this while browsing in a used bookstore looking for a new YA fantasy series like the Lunar Chronicles. While there were some references that were probably funnier to a younger crowd ("Blooming Dales" as an example), I did enjoy reading this as a quick vacation read that kept me on my toes. Some world-building involved, but it is a short trilogy based on already built worlds, so it works. #adaptations #fairy_tales_and_folklore #fantasy

I really thought I was going to get confused by all of the character storylines and time jumping. I was wrong; that was what made this book so good! The character development of 3 generations throughout time was really beautiful.

I went into this thinking that I wasn't going to like this based on mixed reviews. However, I was drawn into the character of Circe. I found myself in her wanting to be a good person but always fearing that she actually isn't. Towards the end, I couldn't put the book down because I just had to know the ending! Despite a few parts I found that ran on a little long, enjoying this book was a wonderful surprise.
