    1 thought on “Wintersong

    1. “You are the monster I claim.” Dark and poetic.Frightening. Seductive. Beautiful.I claim this beautiful tale, I claim the sorrow, the dreams, the wildness, the magic, the darkness and the pain that consumed me.I loved it.“Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the wood.” But the girl grew up, and forgot about the boy. She continued her life as if he never existed, she kept her family together, composed her music in the dark and wished, for attention, for de [...]

    2. WINTERSONG is a maze of beauty and darkness, of music and magic and glittering things, all tied together with exquisite writing. This is a world you will want to stay lost in. I had the honor of hearing about this wonderful story in its earliest stages, and I'm so thrilled and excited that S. Jae-Jones' work will soon be out for you all to obsess over. Don't you dare skip this.

    3. I was absolutely hooked from the intro. One of the best openings to a story, in my opinionE PLOTThe plot is basically Hades/Persephone meets Caraval. It is not only magical, but mysterious and riveting - exploring so many heart felt topics such as the bond between siblings, sacrifice, and self-acceptance.Leisl the older "ugly" sister, the overlooked talent, and the backbone of her family. I connected with her and her insecurities/struggles, especially in the beginning. I think you'll either love [...]

    4. Such gorgeous writing. Too often authors have incredible ideas of stories to write. So we’re excited about them and want only to find a time-machine to transport us into the future with the intention to read said stories.And then we do, after months of waiting (still waiting on that time-machine, by the way) and we’re disappointed because, although the author had a great idea, the execution was so-so or completely mediocre. Am I right? Which is why I am so extremely happy and proud to be abl [...]

    5. Let’s jump right in. This is going to be a difficult one to review because I felt like I loved it as much as I didn’t. I settled on a 3 star review after wrestling with it overnight; I felt it a good compromise overall as it still reflects that I’m glad I read it while also addressing the issues I couldn’t overlook. I’m going to break this up into two sections of likes and dislikes, then you can decide for yourself if it’s the sort of read you’re looking for. Also, if you’ve read [...]

    6. You know what, waving a red flag in front of a bull, getting slammed to the wall by the bull and dying would hurt less than reading the words in this book. Writers like S Jae-Jones need to be illegal because thEY ARE SO EVIL AKDHSF. Wintersong is a painfully beautifully written book about nineteen year old Elisabeth (Liesl) who has always been a responsible and caring older to sister to her siblings Joseph and Kathe, sacrificing her future and dreams for her brother Joseph. She's always lived in [...]

    7. this book was. [crowd leans in] meh [crowd immediately starts booing]¯\_(ツ)_/¯ in millions of years, archaeologists will dig up my crystallized body that has been perfectly preserved by the bog of disappointment that I drowned in after reading this book and put me in a museum with a placard ‘wintersong did this.’look, I've already mentally five starred this book because 99% of my friends loved it and honestly what the fuck is a certified emotion and it's the biggest mood right now. I gen [...]

    8. To see this review and others please visit readrantrockandrollThe moment I saw Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones I had to buy it. The cover, the title, the blurb-pretty much everything about the book baited me. First, I must say that I'm a Labyrinth freak and I've been highly anticipating reading this. I was under the impression that this was a true Labyrinth retelling, but there's more going on here.I was so taken-back in just the first 70 pages of the book. The authors writing style is so appealing. [...]

    9. ❝'I am the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground,' he said, mismatched eyes glinting. 'I am wildness and madness made flesh. You’re just a girl'—he smiled, and the tips of his teeth were sharp—'and I am the wolf in the woods.'❞Thank you to St. Martin's Press for providing me with an ARC!Wintersong was a work of art. S Jae-Jones's writing was breathtakingly poetic and I found myself whisked away by the first page. The storyline was seductive, passionate, and heartbreakingly beautiful. [...]

    10. Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the wood. She was small and dark, he was tall and fair, and the two of them made a fancy pair as they danced together, dancing to the music the little girl heard in her head.I take back what I said about thinking every other 1-star read by me is the most boring book ever, because this was, by far, the most boring book I have ever read. The fact that I actually finished it is so surprising to me because I thought about DNF it s [...]

    11. "Spellbinding and sexy, WINTERSONG is a feast for all the senses. I didn't want this beautifully written book to end."

    12. Ok so first things first: I didn't realize this was a retelling of Labyrinth when I read it and kept thinking that the story reminded me so much of Labyrinth meets Prince Hat Under the Ground, The Goblin Market, and Little Red Riding Hood. So obviously that worked!"Once there was a little girl who played her music for a little boy in the wood"The story takes place somewhere around Austria & Germany in the time of Mozart. Liesl played with the Goblin King in the woods as a child, but eventual [...]

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestYou could say that I'm a hardcore Labyrinth fan girl. I love the movie, Labyrinth, and have seen it many times, glitter-dappled set and cheesy puppets aside; it's an interesting story that's clearly inspired by Celtic faerie lore, and (you could argue) the allegorical tale of a girl's coming-of-age through the use of symbolism. In fact, many of the reasons I love the movie are less because of what's in the story and more of what's explicitly left [...]

    14. This book had the greatest beginning of all time: I am CHALLENGING everyone who reads this review to find a better than this!!“Winter turned to spring, spring to summer, summer into autumn, autumn back into winter, but each turning of the year grew harder and harder as the little girl grew up while the Goblin King remained the same. She washed the dishes, cleaned the floors, brushed her sister’s hair, soothed her brother’s fears, hid her father’s purse, counted the coins, and no longer w [...]

    15. This was Labyrinth by way of Angela Carter, and I think my soul has been aching for a book like WINTERSONG for the last decade. Deliciously romantic with a nuanced Goblin King figure (fancast: Tom Hiddleston) and a strong heroine, this story was rife with fairytales and music and enchantment. It's also more than a little sexy. No complaints here.

    16. Unfortunately, this book wasn't for me. Almost half the book in the beginning was wonderful. I just knew I was going to love this story. But after that it just fell flat for me, which makes me angry but what can you do? I love the name of the book, I love the book cover and I love the idea. I wish I could tell you exactly what it was that went wrong for me but I can't. I'm happy to know that more than half my friends on enjoyed the book, some didn't, but I was hoping after their rave reviews th [...]

    17. 2 stars. (edit: this book popped back up on my feed today, and considering how livid even thinking about it makes me, I'm bumping my rating down another half star. I really am still being generous here.)Mmmmmmmmmm I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this book.I was so sure I was going to love this. The blurb made it sound so mysterious and creepy and intriguing: a young musician gets caught up with evil goblins who steal her sister, and she has to find a way into a dark underworld to sav [...]

    18. Edit: I got a fourth point that makes it problematic for me. DNF@72%Spoilers and Rant mode timeI tried so hard to finish this but I couldn't.I thought after I got halfway through it would get better which it did but then it just fell through for me. I went through the MC whining about her being plain and not desired by anyone, her being jealous of her sister being a "woman" but sort of slut shaming her and her being jealous brother musical talent which was borderline obsession cause she was kind [...]

    19. Down here, I have found myself. Down here, I have a space to be. It is a gift I never looked for, and I cherish it. —ElizabethEven though I didn't know anything about Labyrinth, I was very excited to read Wintersong in light of its gorgeous cover. This book is going to be a stunning addition to my collection. #CoverLoveContent-wise, Wintersong managed to keep my attention. I was especially intrigued by the role of classical music in the story. Elizabeth and the Goblin King (my favorite charact [...]

    20. Buddy read with Maymin ❤Wintersong is a beautiful book. Beautiful, dark, mysterious, and captivating. It is a book that deals with a wide range of themes: Love, pain, selflessness, selfishness, sacrifice, family, music, strength, insecurity, and confidence.Wintersong is apparently a retelling of the movie Labyrinth. I have never watched Labyrinth, so I had no idea what to expect. However, I was told it resembled the book Caraval, a 2017 favorite of mine. The first half definitely resembled it [...]

    21. Set in a fantasy realm? Check.Ever-so-enigmatic male lead? Check.Teenage girl bethroted to said enigma? Check.The two hopelessly fall in love? Check.An obstacle that they will almost CERTAINLY overcome? Checkw where have I read that one before?

    22. "What's the use of running, if we are on the wrong road?"First notes. They are enchanting. Haunting. Alluring- no, no, what are you saying? It's something else. They are the enchantment. They are the ghost and the obsession. They are the allure.The difference is slight, almost indiscernible -one could say it exist only if you will it into existence- but it's there. And since it's there, since these notes don't make you feel, but are the feel, the space between them is filled with promise. The st [...]

    23. Liesl has always been a responsible older sister, looking after her younger sister Kathe and sacrificing her own dreams for her brother Josef. Lisel will never be beautiful like Kathe is and her music will forever live in the shadow of Josef's virtuoso abilities. Though she longs to give into her own desires, she forces herself to be self sacrificing. Then strange things begin to happen and Kathe disappears and no one but Liesl remembers she even exists. Though her grandma always told them stori [...]

    24. This is a story about a brave maiden. This is a story of a tragedy. This is a story about the power of love. This is a story about the compassion and love and sacrifice between siblings. This is a story about selfishness and selflessness. This is the story of the greatest sacrifice. This is a story about life. “Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.”This book is magical. The writing is exquisite. The world is so encompassing and real. The characters are flawed and selfish and selfles [...]

    25. MY NON-SPOILER REVIEW: youtube/watch?v=PMbWt***Woooow. I've decided on 4.5 stars for this one. I feel that it's waay too good for 4 stars, but still had some very minor little quirks that make me want to bring it down a notch. This book was utterly fantastic. Hauntingly beautiful, lyrical, dark and powerful. I am going to refrain from getting into too many of the details, as I am saving that for my upcoming video review. However, just know that this one was very special. It was such an unexpecte [...]

    26. 3.5 stars. Not sure if I want to round up, or down.Is it bad that I'm kind of disappointed? That ending was awful. (Cruel, not poorly written.)***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Wintersong by S. Jae-JonesPublisher: Thomas Dunne BooksPublication Date: February 7, 2017Rating: 3 starsSource: eARC from NetGalleySummary (from ):Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King.

    27. Dude. Duuuuuuuude. This. Book. Messed me uuuup. It was slow to start for me. I thought I wasn’t going to like it very much but then sweet Elisabeth went underground AND HUNG OUT WITH THE GOBLIN KING. I was hooked from the moment she went underground. So hooked that I just read over half of this book in one day. I just couldn’t put it down!!I loved Elisabeth as a main character. Her whole life she has been told she’s not good enough, not pretty enough, just not enough. She found herself in [...]

    28. Wild, untamed, dark, painful, sensual. This is a coming-of-age story of a simple plain girl on the outside, but with fire burning inside her: slow and shimmering and waiting for a little breath to fan it to life.This is how the author S. Jae-Jones aka JJ describes it:The story of a young woman who goes Underground to save her sister, only to find herself instead. In a long time I haven't read a story as sensual as this one, filled with dark allure, death, desire, fear; a story that at the same t [...]

    29. I really liked the first half, but then I’m not sure what exactly happened. I am a serious Labyrinth fan, so I guess I expected something different. The writing was really pretty, though. I guess no one can beat David Bowie as a Goblin King!
