A self-avowed bookworm ever since I can remember. Now, I make a living encouraging teenagers to read books. :)
YA fantasy is always my jam. I also dabble in science fiction, history or historical fiction, romance, nonfiction, and religious and spiritual, and self-help books.
This is wistful and imaginative and quite beautiful, although I don't know that its beauty hits me the way it does other reviewers, especially as I didn't connect with the characters. Still, it's quite romantic and magical in a way that is still grounded very much in the historical 19th century.
