“An Enchantment of Ravens” Review

Written by Margaret Rogerson, the New York times Bestseller An Enchantment of Ravens, is truly an incaptivating book, alluring and mystical in every way. The first thing I noticed while reading, was the specific writing style Rogerson had. With each sentence, the word choice led the readers to truly feel apart of the mystical world of the fair folk. The story follows Isobel, a portrait artist as she navigates the world of the fair folk, and what happens when a painting goes wrong, and she is whisked away by Rook, the autumn prince.

I must admit that I am biased, as I truly adore romance stories, but the tale of love in this story truly enchanted me and I found myself rooting for Isobel every step of the way. There’s so much beautiful foreshadowing and symbolism that whisks you away on an incredible journey.

As an eighteen year old reader who loves fantasy, it can be difficult to find a book that both satisfies my need to feel as if I’m in a different world, but also avoid a childish or cliche nature and this book perfectly does this. I would truly give this book 5/5 stars. I could not put it down and I don’t think you will be able to either.

Tales of The Peculiar Review

Written by Ransom Riggs, Tales of the Peculiar is a series of stories of fairytales and myths and fables that have been adapted to a darker, might I say, more peculiar form.

I truly fell in love with this book, from the first tale where I saw the downfall of the farmers to the cannibals, to the bird who makes time loops and turns into a woman. This book will keep you fascinated, and despite it’s darkness, somehow there’s a beauty in each ending.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy read and who enjoys mythology or fairytales. I truly would give this book a 5/5 stars as I loved each and every story and can see myself reading it to my children one day.
