    ?I held him like the world had spun away beneath me, and I was left to dance with the stars, not mortal any longer but a creature made of moonlight and magic.? This was BRILLIANT. Seriously, I don?t know why it isn?t getting more hype!!! What an underrated gem! Do yourse...

    I held him like the world had spun away beneath me, and I was left to dance with the stars, not mortal any longer but a creature made of moonlight and magic. Beautiful and poignant. Honestly, I'm finding more hidden gems of books that are not too popular either on book-tube or ...

    Title: Echo North Series: Standalone Author: Joanna Ruth Meyer Release date: January 15, 2019 I went into this book thinking it was going to be a simple fairy tale retelling, a fresh spin on something I've heard a million times. Beauty and the Beast is a beloved fairy tale...

    A wolf guarding over a disappeared Father. A young girl who must make a deal with said wolf to save him. A hidden castle with a secret, magical library. MY HEART SINGSSSSSSSSSS This is sitting top shelf on my TBR cart at home. Hoping to get to it in April! I have been hearin...

    There is absolutely No Reason that this book should be 400 pages. I just ... ugh yet another case of Cover Catfish. Thank you Page Street for the ARC in exchange for an honest review! ...

    FULL REVIEW UP <3 I want to get lost in the woods during a winter storm if it means I can have the experience of going to a magical sentient house that provides me with immersive mirror-books. Down to have fun times in the forest, 10/10 seriously this book needs to be hyped up...

    This début novel makes a valiant attempt at retelling the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale mixing the original French tale with its Nordic variant East of the Sun and West of the Moon and the Scottish folk ballad Tam Lin. But rather than retelling the original tales directly, it opts f...

    Originally posted on my book blog. My favorite books are the ones I find most difficult to review. AAHH. How can I explain my love for this book? IT?S SO, SO GOOD. Echo North is so beautiful it hurts. I found myself utterly enchanted by this story of the girl Echo and the whi...

    ?There is one thing you must not do, one rule you must not break.? Echo North is a brilliant and magical retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon, while also pulling inspiration from the stories of Cupid & Psyche, as well as Tam Lin. I read this in less than a day...

    GORGEOUS ...

    Psst! I also have a giveaway + an interview with Joanna up on my blog! Find it HERE! 4 stars This was so magical, I totally fell in love with the enchanted house under the mountain and all of the lush settings in Echo North! (This was definitely my favorite part of reading, 100%....

    I've always loved the fairytale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" and in ECHO NORTH, Joanna Meyer beautifully captures the original essence of the story while tying in a lush new mythos all her own. If magic houses, vengeful goddesses, mysterious wolves, and frozen tundra are of inte...

    A really lovely fairytale retelling. My big caveat with Joanna Ruth Meyer's lovely, dreamlike fantasies is that they can be rather derivative (a thing which I have also been guilty of in some of my literary experiments, lest I come across as overly critical) and I thought this one suff...

    I'd rate this a 3.5. I tend to love retellings of fairy tales, despite my usual distaste for romances. ha. I thought this retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, was fascinating and lovely. It's very similar to Beauty and the Beast and the little E...

    I enjoyed this one so much. The word was enthralling and magical, and the love story slow and poignant. Although the structure on this one was unconventionally shaped it delivered on all promises. Highly recommended for readers who loved Uprooted, An Enchantment of Ravens, and other Fa...

    This is ultimately yet another bland East of the Sun, West of the Moon retelling. It's not unique or compelling enough to be a true reinterpretation of the original (tacking on Tam Lin at the end is just lazy). Nor is the quality of writing good enough to make it satisfying as a straig...

    This was disappointing for me. I went into this hoping for a romantic BATB retelling, and that's not entirely what I got. I found this to be closer to a middle grade novel, and while it was beautifully written and lush in description, it just wasn't for me. A really interesting aspect...

    Wow! Where do I start?! I absolutely adored this book. It immediately drew me in from the very first line, on the very first page. I love the main character, Echo Alkaev. I love her because she?s perfectly human, and she?s perfectly flawed. She is scarred by a wolf as a child, a...

    4.5/5 stars ?You have always been a storyteller.? He laughs softly. ?I suppose I have.? ?Take my story back with you. Give it a happy ending.? ?I will give it the happiest of all endings, Echo who braved the North.? You know, when I went into this book for the fi...

    First ARC of the year complete and just like last year, I started off with a good one! I feel like there have been a lot of re-tellings out/coming out recently. I had only vaguely remembered what the stories of Tam Lin, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, and even the myth of Cupid and ...

    I absolutely ADORED this book! Enchanting and whimsical, yet gothic, raw, and emotional, this book pulled on every single one of my heartstrings! This re-telling had the feel of a classic fairy tale and it certainly took me on incredible reading journey. I was lucky enough to read an A...

    This was GORGEOUS ...

    This was disappointing for me. I went into this hoping for a romantic BATB retelling, and that's not entirely what I got. I found this to be closer to a middle grade novel, and while it was beautifully written and lush in description, it just wasn't for me. A really interesting aspect...

    Wow! Where do I start?! I absolutely adored this book. It immediately drew me in from the very first line, on the very first page. I love the main character, Echo Alkaev. I love her because she?s perfectly human, and she?s perfectly flawed. She is scarred by a wolf as a child, a...

    4.5/5 stars ?You have always been a storyteller.? He laughs softly. ?I suppose I have.? ?Take my story back with you. Give it a happy ending.? ?I will give it the happiest of all endings, Echo who braved the North.? You know, when I went into this book for the fi...

    First ARC of the year complete and just like last year, I started off with a good one! I feel like there have been a lot of re-tellings out/coming out recently. I had only vaguely remembered what the stories of Tam Lin, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, and even the myth of Cupid and ...

    I absolutely ADORED this book! Enchanting and whimsical, yet gothic, raw, and emotional, this book pulled on every single one of my heartstrings! This re-telling had the feel of a classic fairy tale and it certainly took me on incredible reading journey. I was lucky enough to read an A...

    RTC whenever I find the words that will do these story justice. In the meanwhile....GO AND READ THIS BOOK!! ...

    I really, really wanted to like this book, and the writing was certainly beautiful. But there was one glaring problem: This is a book about love, and I did not feel the romance at all. Echo Alkaev was terribly scarred as a child, when her attempt to free a wolf from a trap back...

    For the most part I really enjoyed Echos perspective. She was the relatable quiet book loving type with a sense of adventure she never had the chance to nurture. I loved her relationship with her father and brother. I also liked the wolf, but I didnt understand how she was able to forg...

    This book wrecked me in the best way. The setting is lush and inventive, and its written in a way that pays homage to so many different myths and fairytales while being wholly fresh and original. The central love story is beautiful and believable, and doesn't smooth over the tough part...

    This is a retelling of the Norwegian fairytale, East of the Sun, West of the Moon. I had no idea. I liked the description and so I decided to read the book. I started this morning and couldn?t put it down. It was so exciting and heart racing. I positively loved it! I received an a...

    FULL REVIEW UP <3 I want to get lost in the woods during a winter storm if it means I can have the experience of going to a magical sentient house that provides me with immersive mirror-books. Down to have fun times in the forest, 10/10 seriously this book needs to be hyped up...

    This début novel makes a valiant attempt at retelling the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale mixing the original French tale with its Nordic variant East of the Sun and West of the Moon and the Scottish folk ballad Tam Lin. But rather than retelling the original tales directly, it opts f...

    Originally posted on my book blog. My favorite books are the ones I find most difficult to review. AAHH. How can I explain my love for this book? IT?S SO, SO GOOD. Echo North is so beautiful it hurts. I found myself utterly enchanted by this story of the girl Echo and the whi...

    ?There is one thing you must not do, one rule you must not break.? Echo North is a brilliant and magical retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon, while also pulling inspiration from the stories of Cupid & Psyche, as well as Tam Lin. I read this in less than a day...

    Psst! I also have a giveaway + an interview with Joanna up on my blog! Find it HERE! 4 stars This was so magical, I totally fell in love with the enchanted house under the mountain and all of the lush settings in Echo North! (This was definitely my favorite part of reading, 100%....

    I've always loved the fairytale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" and in ECHO NORTH, Joanna Meyer beautifully captures the original essence of the story while tying in a lush new mythos all her own. If magic houses, vengeful goddesses, mysterious wolves, and frozen tundra are of inte...

    A really lovely fairytale retelling. My big caveat with Joanna Ruth Meyer's lovely, dreamlike fantasies is that they can be rather derivative (a thing which I have also been guilty of in some of my literary experiments, lest I come across as overly critical) and I thought this one suff...

    I'd rate this a 3.5. I tend to love retellings of fairy tales, despite my usual distaste for romances. ha. I thought this retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, was fascinating and lovely. It's very similar to Beauty and the Beast and the little E...

    I enjoyed this one so much. The word was enthralling and magical, and the love story slow and poignant. Although the structure on this one was unconventionally shaped it delivered on all promises. Highly recommended for readers who loved Uprooted, An Enchantment of Ravens, and other Fa...

    This is ultimately yet another bland East of the Sun, West of the Moon retelling. It's not unique or compelling enough to be a true reinterpretation of the original (tacking on Tam Lin at the end is just lazy). Nor is the quality of writing good enough to make it satisfying as a straig...

    This was disappointing for me. I went into this hoping for a romantic BATB retelling, and that's not entirely what I got. I found this to be closer to a middle grade novel, and while it was beautifully written and lush in description, it just wasn't for me. A really interesting aspect...

    Wow! Where do I start?! I absolutely adored this book. It immediately drew me in from the very first line, on the very first page. I love the main character, Echo Alkaev. I love her because she?s perfectly human, and she?s perfectly flawed. She is scarred by a wolf as a child, a...

    4.5/5 stars ?You have always been a storyteller.? He laughs softly. ?I suppose I have.? ?Take my story back with you. Give it a happy ending.? ?I will give it the happiest of all endings, Echo who braved the North.? You know, when I went into this book for the fi...

    First ARC of the year complete and just like last year, I started off with a good one! I feel like there have been a lot of re-tellings out/coming out recently. I had only vaguely remembered what the stories of Tam Lin, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, and even the myth of Cupid and ...

    I absolutely ADORED this book! Enchanting and whimsical, yet gothic, raw, and emotional, this book pulled on every single one of my heartstrings! This re-telling had the feel of a classic fairy tale and it certainly took me on incredible reading journey. I was lucky enough to read an A...

    RTC whenever I find the words that will do these story justice. In the meanwhile....GO AND READ THIS BOOK!! ...

    I really, really wanted to like this book, and the writing was certainly beautiful. But there was one glaring problem: This is a book about love, and I did not feel the romance at all. Echo Alkaev was terribly scarred as a child, when her attempt to free a wolf from a trap back...

    ?I held him like the world had spun away beneath me, and I was left to dance with the stars, not mortal any longer but a creature made of moonlight and magic.? This was BRILLIANT. Seriously, I don?t know why it isn?t getting more hype!!! What an underrated gem! Do yourse...

    I held him like the world had spun away beneath me, and I was left to dance with the stars, not mortal any longer but a creature made of moonlight and magic. Beautiful and poignant. Honestly, I'm finding more hidden gems of books that are not too popular either on book-tube or ...

    FULL REVIEW UP <3 I want to get lost in the woods during a winter storm if it means I can have the experience of going to a magical sentient house that provides me with immersive mirror-books. Down to have fun times in the forest, 10/10 seriously this book needs to be hyped up...

    This début novel makes a valiant attempt at retelling the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale mixing the original French tale with its Nordic variant East of the Sun and West of the Moon and the Scottish folk ballad Tam Lin. But rather than retelling the original tales directly, it opts f...

    Originally posted on my book blog. My favorite books are the ones I find most difficult to review. AAHH. How can I explain my love for this book? IT?S SO, SO GOOD. Echo North is so beautiful it hurts. I found myself utterly enchanted by this story of the girl Echo and the whi...

    ?There is one thing you must not do, one rule you must not break.? Echo North is a brilliant and magical retelling of East of the Sun and West of the Moon, while also pulling inspiration from the stories of Cupid & Psyche, as well as Tam Lin. I read this in less than a day...

    GORGEOUS ...

    Psst! I also have a giveaway + an interview with Joanna up on my blog! Find it HERE! 4 stars This was so magical, I totally fell in love with the enchanted house under the mountain and all of the lush settings in Echo North! (This was definitely my favorite part of reading, 100%....

    I've always loved the fairytale "East of the Sun, West of the Moon" and in ECHO NORTH, Joanna Meyer beautifully captures the original essence of the story while tying in a lush new mythos all her own. If magic houses, vengeful goddesses, mysterious wolves, and frozen tundra are of inte...

    A really lovely fairytale retelling. My big caveat with Joanna Ruth Meyer's lovely, dreamlike fantasies is that they can be rather derivative (a thing which I have also been guilty of in some of my literary experiments, lest I come across as overly critical) and I thought this one suff...

    I'd rate this a 3.5. I tend to love retellings of fairy tales, despite my usual distaste for romances. ha. I thought this retelling of the Norwegian fairy tale, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, was fascinating and lovely. It's very similar to Beauty and the Beast and the little E...

    I enjoyed this one so much. The word was enthralling and magical, and the love story slow and poignant. Although the structure on this one was unconventionally shaped it delivered on all promises. Highly recommended for readers who loved Uprooted, An Enchantment of Ravens, and other Fa...

    THIS REVIEW & MORE ? Paws and Paperbacks ARC received through #booksfortrade on Twitter. ?Ever north, where the mountain meets the sky and the trees are hung with stars.? Echo North is a breathtaking, brilliant retelling of one of my favorite fairytales, East of the ...

    This is ultimately yet another bland East of the Sun, West of the Moon retelling. It's not unique or compelling enough to be a true reinterpretation of the original (tacking on Tam Lin at the end is just lazy). Nor is the quality of writing good enough to make it satisfying as a straig...

    Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books* HOLLY WOW! This was such an amazing book! Echo's and Hal's story was one of the few that made me wish to be in that world of magic, stories and witches! This story, which is inspired by East of the Sun, West of the Moon and also it has s...

    ?The wound is the place where the light enters you.? Rumi -- 3.5 stars. In the Author?s Note at the end of the book, Joanna Ruth Meyer gives a nod to ?East of the Sun, West of the Moon, a Norwegian fairytale that has its roots in the myth of Cupid and Psyche, as does Beaut...

    This was GORGEOUS ...

    This was disappointing for me. I went into this hoping for a romantic BATB retelling, and that's not entirely what I got. I found this to be closer to a middle grade novel, and while it was beautifully written and lush in description, it just wasn't for me. A really interesting aspect...

    Wow! Where do I start?! I absolutely adored this book. It immediately drew me in from the very first line, on the very first page. I love the main character, Echo Alkaev. I love her because she?s perfectly human, and she?s perfectly flawed. She is scarred by a wolf as a child, a...

    4.5/5 stars ?You have always been a storyteller.? He laughs softly. ?I suppose I have.? ?Take my story back with you. Give it a happy ending.? ?I will give it the happiest of all endings, Echo who braved the North.? You know, when I went into this book for the fi...

    First ARC of the year complete and just like last year, I started off with a good one! I feel like there have been a lot of re-tellings out/coming out recently. I had only vaguely remembered what the stories of Tam Lin, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, and even the myth of Cupid and ...

    I absolutely ADORED this book! Enchanting and whimsical, yet gothic, raw, and emotional, this book pulled on every single one of my heartstrings! This re-telling had the feel of a classic fairy tale and it certainly took me on incredible reading journey. I was lucky enough to read an A...

    RTC whenever I find the words that will do these story justice. In the meanwhile....GO AND READ THIS BOOK!! ...

    I really, really wanted to like this book, and the writing was certainly beautiful. But there was one glaring problem: This is a book about love, and I did not feel the romance at all. Echo Alkaev was terribly scarred as a child, when her attempt to free a wolf from a trap back...

    For the most part I really enjoyed Echos perspective. She was the relatable quiet book loving type with a sense of adventure she never had the chance to nurture. I loved her relationship with her father and brother. I also liked the wolf, but I didnt understand how she was able to forg...

    This book wrecked me in the best way. The setting is lush and inventive, and its written in a way that pays homage to so many different myths and fairytales while being wholly fresh and original. The central love story is beautiful and believable, and doesn't smooth over the tough part...
