Merry Christmas eve!
I’ll be eating with the family tonight and I hope you’ll have a great time!
But I still wanted to post about my best reads of 2022 and today’s topic is most imaginative story!
I have two winners today again.
The first is The Ballad of Never After by Stephanie Garber.
Stephanie writes the most imaginative stories and enchanting universe! This one is filled with fates , balls, stories, tiny dragons, vampires…
“Like all admirers of fairytales, she’d always loved the scent of books. She loved the paper dust in the air, the way it swirled in the light like little sprinkles of magic. And most of all, she loved the way that fairytales always made her think of her mother and endless possibilities.”
The second is Cursed by Marissa Meyer
Proof that it’s very imaginative, I began my review with: “
Marissa Meyer must be a descendent of the Grimm Brothers because she is a master storyteller.
In my review of Gilded, the first book of this duology, I wrote:
“That book was light and dark, brutal and mischievous, sad and funny.
And it was so imaginative!
The world building with all the lore and tales of gods and monsters and dark ones was sublime!”
“Stories are powerful. What you don’t understand is that you have not yet written the ending.”
Thanks for reading!
