Pictures of the NightEr than once and she can't help but suspect the two mysterious women who remind her of her jealous stepmother Marjorie I just couldn't get into this book Right from the start it seemed like the author was trying to hide something from the reader and that annoyed me Also it contained too many long descriptions Not my type of book
Adèle Geras ☆ Pictures of the Night ebook
Ollege living and singing with a band in London and Paris But over the course of a few weeks she finds herself in dang Thankfully it was a short book Worst retelling of snow white I've read Didn't care for the main character she seemed very selfish and slightly stoned throughout the book The wicked stepmother never go what was due and the ending was anticlimactic and hurried I haven't read the previous two books perhaps if I did I'd like the characters better
