I love this whole series but have to give most of my adoration to book one. Usually such high fantasy makes me want to run, but I'd gladly read all 500+ pages of this beautiful story in one setting.
Based on that cover alone you know this book is going to be ridiculous, and it is, in the best way possible. It's such a fun book to read that I couldn't help but put it on this list.
Succinctly summarized as "a lesbian retelling of 'Cinderella,'" but it's also much more than that. It's wonderfully written and manages to be both complex but also beautifully, purely simple.
Every word makes The Goose Girl seem like a true fairytale, and that's what makes it so magical.
