Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Blanca & Rosa by Anna Marie-McLemore. This magical realism novel sounds like my kind of story.
REVIEW: FLOWER MOON BY GINA LINKO
Flower Moon by Gina Linko is one of those books that once you start reading, it is hard to set down. Fans of magical realism will really enjoy this story that combines elements of magic and coming of age. The carnival setting gives the narrative a perfect backdrop, and the science that is used to describe the strangeness happening between the sisters is one that contains wonderful jumping off points for the classroom.
Vassa in the Night really surprised me. This is a magical realism story, but also a retelling of a Russian fairytale. The characters are very likeable (especially the talking doll) and the setting is so vividly described. I really enjoyed this one, even with no knowledge of Vassilissa the Beautiful.
