12 Days of YA Book Recommendations: Day 1 – Fantasy

December 13, 2018

 On the first day of YA book recommendations, I’m sharing a fantasy series!

Kingdom of Ash and Briars is the perfect fantasy novel for fans of fairytales. While it’s not a strict retelling, the story is inspired by the tales of Sleeping BeautyCinderella, and Mulan. Hannah West seamlessly blends these different stories together to create a world full of magic, politics, and war. A companion novel, Realm of Ruins, was recently released and pulls from a new set of fairytales, one of which is Beauty and the Beast.


Follow along during the 12 Days of YA Book Recommendations!

    This book seems so cool! The fact that it combines themes from those three fairytales is awesome, definitely adding it to my TBR! I can’t wait to see what other recs you give 🙂
