She Was and She Was Not: A Fairy Tale Reviews

  • Emily A. Duncan

    Utterly perfect.

  • Vika Ryabova

    Прекрасная волшебная сказка в восточном стиле. Длинная, полная событий, размышлений, переживаний и немного - феминизма :)

  • Cristina

    every single star in the night sky, i love this so much.

  • Sami

    The story of a girl with poison in her veins, isolated and feared by everyone she loves. Head stuck in fairy tales and daydreams, she's astonished to find that she's a fairy tale herself to a boy who seems to see beyond her monstrosity and a girl of the same kind that cursed her. When she begins to doubt the story she's been spun all her life, how far will she go to free herself? This novel is a lyrical masterpiece that puts Melissa Bashardoust on the map of great fantasy authors alongside Leigh

When she begins to doubt the story she's been spun all her life, how far will she go to free herself? This novel is a lyrical masterpiece that puts Melissa Bashardoust on the map of great fantasy authors alongside Leigh Bardugo, Holly Black, and Laini Taylor. Incandescently beautiful and brilliantly imagined.

    This was so. Good. If you love queer fairytales, especially of the non-Western variety, do not do not do NOT miss this Persian-influenced bisexual one.

  • Sana

    Bashardoust out here single-handedly revolutionizing fairy tale retellings 💪

  • K8

    and just like that, I'm excited.

  • Stephanie L (catteabooks)

    Girl takes control of her "curse" and uses it to rule the world instead of wallowing in self-pity. Or at least that's how I'm imagining this to turn out.
