Lips Touch: Three Times

Lips Touch: Three Times - Jim Di Bartolo, Laini Taylor I'M SUCH A SUCKER FOR FAIRYTALE STORIES LIKE THESE.

This settles it. I really, REALLY love Laini Taylor's writing. Her style, her rich imagination, her fantabulous vocabulary and her crazy mixed-up plots. It's all amazing.
I never expected this book to draw me in so much. It was /choked sob/ so beautiful!! Also, I LOVED the illustrations. Kudos to Jim Di Bartolo~ His work is amazing- it added so much more beauty to the stories.

The stories could have been fleshed out a little more though, especially Hatchling. It seemed more like a novella- I certainly wish it was.

What a /strangled voice/ wonderful way to blend folklore into modern fairytales.
