For the first 45% or so of this book I thought it was a beautiful translation of a slice of life story. Nice but kind of average save how I wished I could read it in French. By the end I was like oh 5 stars definitely going to be on a best of the year list from me!
My Favorite Thing is Monsters
By: Emil Ferris
My Favorite Thing is Monsters tells the story of Karen Reyes- a young outcasted girl who draws herself, believes herself, a monster and seeks to find out who killed her upstairs neighbor.
Karens story actually tells the story of several different people set around her somewhat chaotic life in 1960’s Chicago.
The Language of Thorns
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Illustrated By: Sara Kipin
I was originally torn on whether to even pick this book up or not. It’s a book of six fairy tales set in the Grishaverse, three of which have been published previously. But in the end I’m thrilled that I did and it’s so beautifully illustrated if you’re at all interested in it I’d definitely suggest picking up the hardback version.
