i received a copy of little thieves from hachette nz in exchange for an honest review.
little thieves review
as far as retellings go, this ones up there as one of my favorites. the author does an excellent job reworking the original tale into something unique. little thieves is a fast paced, and exciting read.
i really enjoy how our main character, vanja, isn’t exactly a stellar person. she does a lot of questionable things. i really enjoy how the author used the anti hero in little thieves, as it adds so much character to the book. i wish it was something that was used more widely.
little thieves has a dark fairytale vibe, in the old timey German style, which i absolutely loved. the world building was on point. and the inclusion of LGBT+ relationships, including references to “daughters they thought were boys at birth”.
considering how much i enjoyed this book, I’ll definitely be reading the author’s other works sometime soon.
