Moods: Adventurous, Emotional, Mysterious
How it made me feel: Another be careful what you wish for tale, but with a twist. I did not want to put this book down and when I did, I still wanted to think about it. A gorgeous story that felt like a contemporary, updated fable.
There were some issues that kept me from giving 5 stars, though. Although SO beautifully written, I felt as though we were shown more of the story than we actually experienced or felt. This made the pacing feel a little slower in places when I would have liked to have felt more with the main characters.
After 300 years into a curse, I would have liked Addie to have matured some. She loved, she hurt, she suffered, she is neglected, abandoned, abused. She lived like a fugitive in people's houses, learning to be skilled thief. She learned and experienced so much, but her thoughts still felt so young.
Would I recommend? Yes, absolutely :)
