Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige ❄️
Synopsis from goodreads: “Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.
Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid–her true home–with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.
At the beginning I thought this book is a new retelling of The Evil Queen story and that’s simply because Snow & Queen stuck with me so I came up with that conclusion on my own 😂 halfway through the book I realized that ITS ABOUT THE SNOW QUEEN who I still have no slight idea of who she’s but I’m assuming that she’s Elsa 🌬 This is a Fantasy YA book so there was a lot of world building, some places were described incredibly while others were unclear because the description was a bit vague whoever I believe that the author did this on purpose so we could explore it more in the other books of the series .. The world that was created is beautiful and unique in every aspect and I simply can’t deny that 🌏
The characters of this book are complex and odd .. Some you will like, others you will hate and the main heroine falls right in between 🙇🏻 However, she does start changing and you get to see different sides of her character .. She grows on you the more you read. Overall it’s an interesting book and I seriously want to start the second book ASAP!
