Which retellings do you never tire of reading? Are there any retellings you're looking forward to reading in 2020? 🥀
I've enjoyed a fair few retellings this year. The Beauty and the Beast ones have by far been my favourite though and 2020 is bringing even more!!!
I absolutely LOVED Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely when I read it earlier this year, and like my fellow #Cursebreakers I am super excited for the sequel A Heart So Fierce and Broken next month!!
There is also Of Curses & Kisses by Sandhya Menon releasing in February! I've already had the pleasure of reading this one and let me tell you it's as cute and heartwarming as ever!!
And then the 3rd book in Ashley Poston's Once Upon a Con series - Beauty and the Beast once agaaaain - is set for a mid 2020 release and I can't wait! 😆
💖 Book Review 💖
Amina's Voice by Hena Khan (@henakhanbooks), narrated by Soneela Nankani
Amina has never been comfortable in the spotlight. She is happy just hanging out with her best friend, Soojin. Except now that she’s in middle school everything feels different. Soojin is suddenly hanging out with Emily, one of the “cool” girls in the class, and even talking about changing her name to something more “American.” Does Amina need to start changing too?
This book is beautiful in and out (that cover!!). In a short amount of pages (or hours), it tackles a lot of issues: the sense of not belonging, the religious impact on one's reflections on life, family's support, prejudice and the overcoming of one's shyness to do what they want!
The narrator is amazing, her voice is soothing and fantastic. The straightforwardness of the writing style serves the narration perfectly, it calls out the emotion beautifully, it makes you understand and feel for Amina so much!
I really, really recommend this book!!
My only remark, and it was the same for George by Alex Gino, is that everything falls too much perfectly into place in my opinion or rather for my taste but this book being a middle grade one I can't really hold it against it, can I?
