Mini Review: Bridge of Snow by Marie Rutkoski
Bridge of Snow is a short story set in the world of the upcoming book The Winner's Curse. It is about one of the main characters, Arin, when he was 8 years old. This story is told from the point of view of his mother. And it is beautiful. I loved getting to know a little bit more about Arin. And his family.
Arin's mother is telling him a story about a man and the God of snow. Which was kind of a really heartbreaking story. But also good. I kind of loved reading it. <3 Though I might have wished for a tiny bit more of child-Arin. Okay, want a whole book of Arin, hih. But I loved what was included in this story. Arin and his mother are adorable. I loved getting to know a little about his sister as well. Though that part made me even sadder.
Not saying anything more about this short story. Just that Bridge of Snow is an amazing story and I think you all need to read it. It broke my heart a little, though. But I'm so glad that I read it. It was so good. You should all read it before or after reading The Winner's Curse. Probably before. I cannot wait to re-read The Winner's Curse. <3 Will be doing so very soon, I hope. And I hope you will all be reading it when it comes out in March. Because it is such a gorgeous and heartbreaking and perfect book. <3

I agree, this was heartbreaking but wonderful. I want a book about Arin and his childhood too. I love Rutkoski's writing style so very much and this was just perfect. I hope she does more short stories.ReplyDelete
