The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry (26th Jan 2016)
Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones (7th Feb 2017)
Perrault's Fairy Tales by Charles Perrault (5th Nov 2004)
Feminist Fairy Tales by Barbara G. Walker (1st Jan 1996)

I'm thinking about starting a feature where I look at fairy tales and how they have evolved from the original story to the various retellings. Perrault wrote some of the fairy tales we think of as being by the Brothers Grimm, and with Feminist Fairy Tales, I have more retellings! :)

A Tragic Kind of Wonderful
  • A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom was just brilliant! It's about living with bipolar, it's about grief, it's about friendship - with all kinds of people, young and old, and how complicated it can be - and it's about romance. I felt so much for Mel! And this book normalises periods! I love this book! Eric Lindstrom is now one of my auto-buy authors.
