House of Salt and Sorrows
House of Salt and Sorrows | Erin A. Craig
Get swept away in Erin A. Craig's mesmerizing House of Salt and Sorrows. As one by one her beautiful sisters mysteriously die on their isolated island estate, Annaleigh must unravel the curse that haunts her family. Be careful who you dance with. . . . Four of Annaleigh Thaumas's eleven sisters have returned to the Salt, the brackish water that surrounds their lonely island home, their lives cut short, each more tragically than the last. Whispers throughout the Highmoor estate say the girls have been cursed by the gods. When Annaleigh finds out that her sisters have been sneaking out to attend glittering midnight balls and dance until dawn, she's not sure whether to stop them--or join them. And when she begins to see a series of horrific, ghostly visions and more sisters die, she realizes she must solve the mystery--with the help of Cassius, a sea captain who knows much more about her than he should--and unravel the Thaumas curse before she descends into madness or . . . it claims her next.

first spooky read of the season! I loved this book. The story is so atmospheric, and the retelling is so well done! Plus, The 12 Dancing Princesses isn‘t one that‘s done too often, so it felt very fresh and unique!

Clare-Dragonfly This sounds really cool! I read another retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses a while back. I can‘t remember the title and I thought it was pretty good, but not great. 🤔 Glowing recommendation, huh?! 😂 4d
cleoh @Clare-Dragonfly oh yeah, glowing 😂 I‘d like to read more retellings of this story though! Lemme know if you remember it! 🥰 4d

I literally could not stop reading this book! It was fantastic! A retelling of the twelve dancing princesses in a lush fantasy world full of gods and magic! I want to know more about this incredible place! The characters were so unique and full of life. I also loved that this tale had an element of mystery to it, even though it became apparent towards the end what the resolution was. And I truly loved the gothic and ghostly ambience that ensued.

Things that I love about this book: 1. The cover. 2. The synopsis with the promise of intrigue and mystery. I was looking forward to this one, but with a book that suggests murder and ghosts and more death, I was surprised at how prim and vanilla this book read. I don‘t know what it is for sure, but this one just didn‘t work for me. I know there are others that loved it, so perhaps it was me for this one.

I only bought one book this time. Hobbs & Shaw was a perfect, fun, action action ACTION movie!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A dark fairytale retelling w/ magic, mystery, poetically descriptive storytelling, & a good dose of creepiness, this book proved to be an ideal reading experience for me! A reimagining of the Grimm brothers' Twelve Dancing Princesses, Craig expands the enchanted fairytale into a nightmare of loss, spooky apparitions, & nail-biting suspense.

The afternoon storm was perfect for finishing up this creepy read. I could not put this one down. It is so eerie. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen the plot changed. There were several plot twists and I didn‘t really guess any of them. My only complaint is I felt a little lost regarding the gods. They become a major plot point but that wasn‘t really built up in the first part of the story.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am a sucker for fairy retellings so I knew I had to read this one! This one was a retelling of 12 Dancing Princesses. This book sucked me in and kept me on the edge of my seat. I wanted to know how it all ended.

jackilynn I can't wait to get my hands on this one. The 12 Dancing Princesses was a favorite story of mine growing up so I was beyond excited when I discovered that this was coming out. I am interested to see how they expand/retell the story. 1mo
Daria.Adrianna21 One of my favorite parts of this book was the relationship between Annaleigh and Morella (before THE THING). I think it is really healthy to portray a friendship between stepparent and stepdaughter, instead of villainizing them like that happens in most YA fiction. 1mo

As great as this book is, I have a few complaints.

I loved the dark and eerie tone of this book! However, it was ruined during some parts because the author constantly had to remind the reader that the book was fantasy. A few random tidbits here, a strange backstory there. It was so close to being the horror book that I need in my life!
No matter my complaint, I am so happy that there was a healthy relationship between stepmother and daughter.

Holy heck! This was SO fantastic that I might have a bit of a book hangover now. WOW. I had a review in mind, but upon finishing it, I‘m in such a daze that I can hardly find words. An atmospheric Gothic fairytale ‘retelling‘ that‘s exquisitely written with so many twists and turns. OMG. I can‘t right now. Even though I‘ve just finished the book, I‘m still lost in it.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
I finally finished my first book for the #24in48. I feel slow, but I‘m working on another arc and almost finished an audiobook, which I‘m sure I‘ll finish tomorrow. Anyway, this book is a dark, twisted retelling of the 12 dancing princesses. Has a lot of twists and it makes it hard to discern what is real and not real.
