    You are mine, Elizabeth Lavenza, and nothing will take you from me. Not even death. I do not think I expected one of the best books I read this year to be a retelling of Frankenstein where it?s not just about the nature of monstrousness, but about the power of women working toge...

    ?Elizabeth,? he said, his tone firm and chiding. He lifted my chin and fixed my eyes with his. ?You are mine. You have been since the first day we met. You will be mine forever. My absence should not have caused you to doubt the firmness and steadfastness of my attachment to you...

    "I thought to puncture heaven and instead I discovered hell." Everything about this book screams READ ME. And yes, it does so in caps lock. It is so promisingly creepy and twisted, exactly what a perfect book sounds like to me. I am a big fan of Penny Dreadful (it's on Netflix an...

    I finished it! But I can?t really decide how I want to rate it yet. I liked it, but I don?t think I was in the right mood to read it. But the writing was quite good, it was definitely creepy and interesting. And if you like the source material, you?ll probably find a lot to enjoy...

    "What perfection can you hope to find in death?" I've read only one book by Kiersten White and since it turned out to be the worst book I've read in my life, I was determined not to read anything else by her ever again. I'm glad I am such a nice person and gave her second chance, ...

    I struggled with this book and it legitimately breaks my heart. I liked Elizabeth. I like how devoted and well meaning she is. Victor was intriguing and somehow I was rooting for both of them. There are a few other characters, but I don?t want to say anything else here. Plot ...

    It was... curious? Definitely quite a refreshing reimagining of the original Frankenstein. I still feel goosebumps all over my body. I wouldn?t be surprised to find out Kiersten White is a real goddess in gisguise sent on earth to haunt us with her talent. Not that I mind being harra...

    Thank you Penguin Random House International for providing an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Trigger warning: This book contains graphic scenes such as abuse, violence and gore. Timely it's Halloween season, it's the perfect time I step away from contemporary...

    That was creepy and enjoyable. I really didn't connect with Elizabeth but that didn't bother me, most of the characters were very interesting. I really loved how feminism was effortlessly disscussed, it wasn't forced at all. It just showcased the reality of women being dependent on o...

    Sometimes we were strangers even to ourselves. For the first two thirds, I thought this book was pretty good. Frankenstein is one of my favourite books, and I like it when authors give a voice - and different perspective - to a side character. But it is in the final third when this ...

    Well that was dark and delicious. ...

    you know what?s really fun and in style right now? retellings of old famous tales but focusing the spotlight on the lives of the women in them and carving more spaces for their stories. I?m so excited about this book!! ...
