Kept me invested enough throughout and I liked the world building. However, even putting aside all the controversy, the writing was wordy and the story was longer than it needed to be. This was a long and SLOWWW burn. The two protagonists didn’t seem to have much chemistry, and there was no bridge between childhood friends to sudden romance. I could see where the author was trying to go with this. I love a sapphic fantasy (and I loved the bi representation!), but I’m unsure if I should pick up the sequel or not.

Great retelling of a classic story. Elizabeth was one of the most interesting characters I’ve ever read. The only critique I have is that the beginning was a little slow. The ending was abrupt but I still think it was great. It keeps you thinking about the book.

I’ve heard soo much about this! This was my first Colleen Hoover book. I’m going to be honest - the beginning felt like a setup to a badly-written romance, but the plot started to grow on me. It was messed up and disturbing and I liked it. The story was well-paced and the characters got more and more interesting. Too much spice for me though.

This was one of the most well-written books I’ve seen on Booktok. It was absolutely magical and I loved the fairytale elements. I would say some parts were hard to read, but that’s just because of how emotionally invested I became in this story. I felt anxiety and anticipation, anger and frustration. Also the climax of this story!! It was full of so many thrilling twists and turns. I just couldn’t put the book down.

I enjoyed this book, but I wouldn’t say it was thrilling. I liked the mystery but it felt stretched out. Some of the characters and relationships were lacking, but Hana was well-written. I should have seen the plot twist coming but I didn’t! This is worth a read if you enjoy a slow burn mystery

This was a fantastic retelling of a classic fairytale. I love the way folklore was incorporated. The only thing I didn’t like was how long it was. The story seems to drag and slow down. This would have been a great 300-400 page novel. But the cliffhanger!! I need to get the second book now.

Picked this up for a quick read. It didn’t make me cry, but the I enjoyed the fast pacing. The subject is tragic and sadly relevant. Scary stuff

Just a perfect finale to the series and my favorite in the trilogy. Also liked how the queer characters were portrayed. I was unsure at first, but I really enjoyed seeing the characters grow and I recommend this series!
