2015 Women Writers Reading Challenge Book #11: Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi


This retelling of the classic fairy tale Snow White is dark, twisted, and entirely enjoyable. The story is rich and complex and the writing is sophisticated, but still light enough to be read casually. The characters aren’t exactly likable, though there are notable exceptions, but they’re completely fascinating. Let’s just say there’s a lot going on in this book, and it’s going to make no sense if I tell you about it–you’ll just have to read it for yourself.
