Lips Touch Three Times

cover art of Lips Touch Three TimesLaini Taylor’s Lips Touch Three Times was an enjoyable read. It is composed of three short stories for young adults, reminiscent of greek mythology.

Goblin Fruit is a contemporary continuation of  Christina Rossetti’s Goblin Market. It was intriguing and beautifully worded but I wished we could find out exactly what happens to Kizzy.

Spicy Little Curses: Such as These was incredibly sad, and offered an interesting view of reincarnation.

Hatchling was my favourite out of the short stories, reminding me of the novel Running With the Demon (I read it when I was about 12). Mihai’s discovery and method of piecing himself back together is what fascinates me.

Jim Di Barteolo’s illustrations were so gorgeous I spent almost as much time examining them as I did reading the text. I plan to look for more of his work!
