I recently read a book that I really enjoyed and I decided to share it with all of you.
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George is a wonderful book. It’s a lovely take on a classic romance story and is filled with exciting mythical creatures and legends. The story’s plot twists and turns and kept me guessing most of the way through. I absolutely love novels that are so intricately woven, that try as I might- and I do indeed try very hard to predict what will happen in a book- I can’t figure out many of the things that will happen, and this novel was no exception.
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow is about a girl and her very poor family living in an area quite similar to Norway. The story follows this daughter of a woodcutter through the adventure that she abruptly gets caught up in. We are able watch “the lass”, as she is called, grow, mature, and change as she is faced with many interesting challenges and she discovers the crazy things love will make you do and the wonderful things it has to offer.
This story is not the typical magical type of book I read, but I enjoyed it very much anyhow. Rather than containing wizards and mythological gods, this book contained trolls, magical spells, castles, and plenty more. Oh, and of course it contained romance and sibling love that captured my heart.
I recommend you read this book. I loved it cover to cover, and, I will admit, I read it in one day. And then I read it again.
Now I plan on reading the other novels Jessica Day George has to offer. She is a splendid author.
If you have read Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, or have read any other novels written by Jessica Day George, or have any comments at all, leave them below! Happy reading!
