Book Review: Stepsister ~ Jennifer Donnelly | ★★★★✰
Fairy-tale retelling | YA | Take a huge dose of 'Caraval' vibe, mix it with light 'The Night Circus' enchantment, sprinkle it with a good bit of 'Alice In Wonderland' story style, add a pinch of 'Mulan' dynamics, throw in a bucket of crucial life messages, adapt it all as a sequel-slash-retelling of 'Cinderella'... And you get Stepsister. As marvelous as that.

Book Review: A Sky Painted Gold ~ Laura Wood | ★★★✰✰
Historical fiction (1920s) | YA | This is a cute book, but it didn't strike me as thaaat special. It was mostly fluff with good characters but not an otherworldly story. Kudos to the last two chapters, though.
