FAMILY LOVE IS GREAT I love my family too ARC provided by Flatiron books in exchange for an honest review.
Girls Made of Snow and Glass is a debut novel that is also a very reminiscent loose fairytale mashup retelling of Snow White and Frozen, but with unique twists It s a dual narrative that switches between the points of view between two women One is Lynet, a fifteen year old who will one day rule her father s kingdom, while residing in the northern lands of Whitespring The other is Mina, Lynet s stepmother, who is from the southern lands and wants to be viewed for than her beauty This book does have feministic undertones, and I loved every aspect pertaining to those undertones with my whole heart There really are some great messages in here Like, that girls are worth so much than their beauty That young girls can be whatever they want to be, they do not have to be the mistakes of As many of you may know, I m a huge fan of subersive retellings A retelling focusing on Snow White and her stepmother always sounded fabulous to me, especially with feminist themes And, thank goodness, it didn t disappoint This is really all I want out of fantasy developed characters, interesting subversions of done before tropes, and sapphic girls.
In terms of retellings, this is one of the imaginative ones I ve read I can t really spoil how But really, the new elements added were so delightful and creative, yet stick to the spirit of the tale With one exception, obviously, for Mina and Lynet s relationshhip This book s chief strength is the character work Mina s character arc is extremely well written and developed Her character isn t so much morally ambiguous as troubled and self hating but I found her combi I loved this book I hope to add it to my bookshelves That s all I received an early copy of this book from Netgalley, but that does not change my feelings on the book overall I went into this book with little to no actual plot knowledge I knew it was a retelling of Snow White, I knew it was being marketed as having feminist elements, and I had an inkling that the Snow White character would be queer These things are all accurate to the story, but they in no way to justice to the plot, characters, and heart of this book.
Lynet and Mina are remarkable characters Princess Lynet has been forced every day to grow up an exact copy of the mother who died before they ever met Mina has been an outsider her entire life, first in the village where she grew up, and then in Whitespring where she meets a King and hatches a plan to at least be respected, even if she could never be loved Their relationsh it was good and all, but my advice make it gayerRTC buddy read with my gay crew, It was kind of boring There was nothing terrible about this book, but like the snow and ice imagery so prevalent throughout the book, it left me cold This book portrays itself as a feminist fantasy, modeled after Frozen and The Bloody Chamber I have not watched Frozen, and I don t know what The Bloody Chamber is What it did remind me of was Snow White and the Huntsman with a magical twist We get to see things from the not so evil stepmother queen Mina , and the princess Lynet Both are beautiful in their own way, both defined by their beauty by the world If they love you for anything, it will be for your beauty.
Both portrayed as sympathetic women, defined by the fact that neither are truly human, not quite alive Mina la Spoiler free reviewWeak or strong she didn t know what they meant any Maybe they didn t mean the same thing for everyone First, you have to know that this book literally is being marketed as, and I quote, a fantasy feminist fairy tale , and if you think that wasn t enough to sell me on it, you are DEAD WRONG PLOTIn the wintery wonderland Whitespring, Princess Lynet is nearing her sixteenth birthday, and her father expects her to come into her own as Queen Unfortunately, Lynet has never wanted to be a Queen she just wants to climb trees and towers and learn about the mysterious new surgeon, a girl named Nadia who makes her cheek flush every time she smiles.
Meanwhile, Lynet s stepmother, Mina, has only ever wanted to be Queen
