Candice reporting in with a review of A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow which released Tuesday, October 05 2021
Harrow has been on my list of Want-to-Read authors for a bit so when I got my hands on this novella, I was super excited. It did not disappoint. I adore fairytale retellings and this was absolutely smart and wonderful and sad and thought-provoking and hopeful. It tied in all the different facets of the Sleeping Beauty stories and fairytale tropes, then turned them on their heads. Charm is just the best Best Friend, I love how Zin finds herself, and I’m so glad Sleeping Beauty finally gets her story. And that the “Evil Fairy” gets a chance to share her tragic origin story and be understood too.
