Book Review : A Spindle Splintered

Book Review : A Spindle Splintered

A Spindle Splintered is a breath of fresh air of a fairy retelling of Sleeping Beauty. Instead of trying to evade the fact that most fairy tales are completely chauvinistic, A Spindle Splintered, embraces this truth and seeks to destroy it on what is a lighthearted adventure sprinkled with darker themes, including terminal illnesses and what it means for women to not have any choices. Like most of author Alix […]
