If you are a fan of fairy tales and foklore, Katherine Arden’s The Bear and the Nightingale is a must-read. The book is beautifully written, and the Russian roots of the story will be delightfully unfamiliar to many readers. If you enjoyed Naomi Novik’s Uprooted, you’ll enjoy this as well. If you enjoy The Bear and the Nightingale, then I highly suggest picking up Catherynne M. Valente’s Deathless. If you haven’t read any of these books, then you’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Check out the synopsis below. [click to continue…]
