Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

Into the Wild

Read Girls Made of Snow and Glass Online Free - Frozen meets The Bloody Chamber in this feminist fantasy reimagining of the Snow White fairytale

At sixteen, Mina's mother is dead, her magician father is vicious, and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone—has never beat at all, in fact, but she’d always thought that fact normal. She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass. When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time, Mina forms a plan: win the king’s heart with her beauty, become queen, and finally know love. The only catch is that she’ll have to become a stepmother.

Fifteen-year-old Lynet looks just like her late mother, and one day she discovers why: a magician created her out of snow in the dead queen’s image, at her father’s order. But despite being the dead queen made flesh, Lynet would rather be like her fierce and regal stepmother, Mina. She gets her wish when her father makes Lynet queen of the southern territories, displacing Mina. Now Mina is starting to look at Lynet with something like hatred, and Lynet must decide what to do—and who to be—to win back the only mother she’s ever known…or else defeat her once and for all.

Entwining the stories of both Lynet and Mina in the past and present, Girls Made of Snow and Glass traces the relationship of two young women doomed to be rivals from the start. Only one can win all, while the other must lose everything—unless both can find a way to reshape themselves and their story.

Like no fairytale retelling I have read before. Snow White is my least favourite fairytale. Where other people see beauty and purity, I see simplicity and oppressiveness. So it’s a good thing Melissa Bashardoust has written this feminist retelling of it, in which powerful women are not solely repr...

ARC provided by Flatiron Books in exchange for an honest review. Buddy Read with Destiny ❤ Girls Made of Snow and Glass is a debut novel that is also a very reminiscent loose fairytale mashup retelling of Snow White and Frozen, but with unique twists. It’s a dual narrative that switches between the...

This was an entirely magical book of (1) glass, (2) snow, (3) epic women, and (4) extremely bad hair days. Which is relatable, honestly, because I put my foot down when these fairy tales can just have wonderful queens smiting galaxies and never getting so angry at their hair they just want to cut...

It was kind of boring. There was nothing terrible about this book, but like the snow and ice imagery so prevalent throughout the book, it left me cold. This book portrays itself as a feminist fantasy, modeled after Frozen and The Bloody Chamber. I have not watched Frozen, and I don't know what Th...

Release date: September 5, 2017 The main idea here is such a creative and brilliantly feminist take on Snow White! It's told through the alternating POVs of Mina (the stepmother/Queen) and Lynet (the Snow White character). Mina's story is about her controlling magician father who saved her life as...

*I received an early copy of this book from Netgalley, but that does not change my feelings on the book overall* I went into this book with little to no actual plot knowledge. I knew it was a retelling of Snow White, I knew it was being marketed as having "feminist" elements, and I had an inkling...

Reviewed by: Rabid Reads 4.5 stars Retellings have been coming out of the woodwork these last several years, with SNOW WHITE being a crowd favorite, but as much as I love fairytales (and I really, really do), there are only so many ways a story can be retold in a short period of time before it gets...

Spoiler-free review! “Weak or strong - she didn’t know what they meant anymore. Maybe they didn’t mean the same thing for everyone.” Buddy read with the lovely Melanie. 💖 First, you have to know that this book literally is being marketed as, and I quote, "a fantasy feminist fairy tale", and if you...

4 Stars Overview: I knew Melissa Bashardoust's debut would hold a special place on my shelves before I even read it. Because it was my first physical ARC! (I'm so happy I didn't hate this) Taking place in a land plagued by endless Winter, this Snow White retelling focuses on two young women. The fi...

As many of you may know, I’m a huge fan of subersive retellings. A retelling focusing on Snow White and her stepmother always sounded fabulous to me, especially with feminist themes. And, thank goodness, it didn’t disappoint. This is really all I want out of fantasy; developed characters, interes...
