Blood Red Snow White
Very rarely do books excite me nowadays. I still enjoy reading, but there are so many sub-par works out there and wading through them sometimes gets me down. I've found a real gem though, Blood Red Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick. Don't be fooled by it being in the teen section, this book is fantastic. It was recommended by my fellow literary junkie Suzie and it's about the Russian Revolution. But it's told in the way that a fairy tale is told, full of fantastic terrors and a character who weaves through the stories. Read this book and tell me what you think, I promise you it's fantastic.
