Review: Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
And I'm glad I did. Even though it wasn't as perfect as I had wanted it to be. I just couldn't love the writing. It just wasn't good enough for me. It wasn't all bad, just not for me. But I did love the story. The story is pretty amazing. I do love fairytale books, and this is one big fairytale, set in the real world. Sort of. A few things I thought were weird, but mostly I enjoyed the plot and characters a lot. It is an interesting and sweet book.
I won't write a long review for this book, because I don't know what to say. Will talk a tiny bit about the plot and the characters, but not much more than that, but yeah. I did enjoy the book, even though I didn't fully love it. I loved the fairytale part of the book, even though at times I thought it was a bit too much. But I loved reading about the world in the woods, the couple in the cottage, the evil bird woman, and just everything. I enjoyed reading about the witch as well. I just kind of wished the book had been more evil. Okay, it is a bit heartbreaking. But I could have handled more.
Breadcrumbs is a story about eleven year old Hazel. I sort of adored her. She's different from the other kids her age, and she's just pretty amazing. She lives with just her mom, and it's kind of hard at times, but she is happy. Although school isn't going too well, and that made me sad, because it was heartbreaking. But I also loved it. Hazel has a best friend, though. Jack. And he was pretty amazing, too :) I just wish he had been in the book more, and that we had seen their friendship better, since the book is about that. But I did enjoy reading the parts he was in. He is a great friend to Hazel :)
The plot in this book is pretty interesting. It is a story about how Jack gets taken away by the Ice Queen. Kind of. And it is sad, but not that sad. It is interesting to read about it all, and I did enjoy the book; for the most part. I won't say more than that, though, because the book isn't that long, and I think you should read it for yourself. It is good :) And I cannot wait to read more by Anne Ursu. Breadcrumbs is a sweet book, with a great adventure. I didn't love it that much, but I did like it very much :)
