Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale by Holly Black
This was a formative read for me. It was the first time I read about a sinister fairyland, and it felt deliciously blasphemous. I hadn’t realized you were allowed to take myth and folklore, flip it and show its dark underside. It made me hungry for more.
Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier
Another fairy tale retelling that captured my imagination. I loved the focus on sisterly relationships, the rich otherworld and the romance that hides in plain sight.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The definition of a transportive read. You raise your head from its pages and smell popcorn and chestnut, the blown-out candle scent of vanishing magic.
“This is a book to swan dive into, swim around in, luxuriate in. Trust me, you won’t want to come out” –Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of Strange The Dreamer
“The Gilded Wolves is part political misadventure, part puzzle and thoroughly charming, with a band of rapscallions and a string of surprises!” –Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of The Cruel Prince
“The Gilded Wolves is the smart, dark adventure YA readers have been waiting for.” –Adrienne Young, New York Times bestselling author of Sky In The Deep
“The Gilded Wolves has it all: magical Belle Époque Paris, dark and glittering prose, a cast of characters that will steal your heart inside their other heists. This is a book I wish I’d written.” –Ryan Graudin, award-winning author of Wolf By Wolf
