Hello fellow book lovers! I'm Lucy and I blog about books, audiobooks and movies at The Reading Date. I'm testing the waters over here to see how it goes. What are you reading?

Lips Touch: Three Times

Lips Touch: Three Times - Lips Touch: Three Times is a book of 3 short stories with a fairy tale feel: 1.Goblin Fruit - retelling of Christina Rosetti's "Goblin Market"2.Spicy Little Curses such as these - My favorite of the 3, about a curse delivered from hell on a child as a bargain to save many other children. Will she break free from the curse?3.Hatchling - About a mother and daughter with a mysterious past. The daughter wakes up one day to find one of her eyes has turned blue to her mother's horror. We learn about the mother's difficult past with flashbacks.Each of the stories has several pages of beautiful illustrations like a graphic novel that can be read as a prologue to each story. At the center of each story is a kiss and the consequences that go along with it. These are dark, rich, beautifully written stories. I enjoyed the multi-cultural aspects and the fantasy elements. I think this would appeal to fans of young adult and fantasy genres.
