Happy New Year, everyone! It’s the first day of new year and I hope everyone is having a great day and ready for a new start. Anyway, December has been a pretty hectic month for me and I haven’t read many books because I’ve been busy with the Christmas preparations but I’m glad that I still manage to read 7 books(if you don’t know I usually read more than 10 books per month).

Recently, there’s been a lot of hype over this book and trust me, it totally lives up to all the hype. The story was absolutely enchanting with beautiful setting. It was a bit slow but I was never left bored. It totally deserves to be read! I can’t wait to read the next book!
BLURB: At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn’t mind—she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil.
After Vasilisa’s mother dies, her father goes to Moscow and brings home a new wife. Fiercely devout, city-bred, Vasilisa’s new stepmother forbids her family from honoring the household spirits. The family acquiesces, but Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows.
And indeed, crops begin to fail, evil creatures of the forest creep nearer, and misfortune stalks the village. All the while, Vasilisa’s stepmother grows ever harsher in her determination to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for either marriage or confinement in a convent.
As danger circles, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on dangerous gifts she has long concealed—this, in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse’s most frightening tales.
