    I absolutely love every story in this collection! The writing style is witty and all the characters feel very real and relatable. I don’t think there’s been a single story by this author that I haven’t been completely enthralled with and I can’t wait to see what more amazing work she will come out with!

    Amazing collection from an amazing author. I had previously read some short stories by her that she posted online and got super excited when I saw there was a physical collection coming out. The author has really stepped up, creating these amazing characters and short stories that still completely grab you. Definitely an amazing read I will go back to again and again and I reccomend anyone that even has the mildest interest reads.

    More, please... This is a really enjoyable collection of stories, mostly from the point of view of young women growing up and discovering themselves. The language was anachronistic in spots, but otherwise great fun. I want more from this author.

    I loved "A Glass Window" and "We deserve a soft landing, love"! (These stories are 5 stars!) I also did really enjoy "Little Lights" but it was a little hard for me to get into at the beginning, but it might have just been me because the clothes descriptions at the beginning just shook me with dysphoria, so that's a me problem (but hey its good writing if I can really feel that I suppose!). Putting 4 stars instead of 5 because I did struggle a little with "Flower Crown", it was really hard to ge I loved "A Glass Window" and "We deserve a soft landing, love"! (These stories are 5 stars!)

Putting 4 stars instead of 5 because I did struggle a little with "Flower Crown", it was really hard to get into, and was much longer than the others. I liked it a little more towards the ending, but I had a really hard time feeling for Lina.

    The average of the ratings I gave the individual stories was just below 4.5, making it a very strong collection by my standards. By far my favorite of the five stories was the first, "The Glass Window." I'm a sucker for mermaids, and this one had an Ariel-type mermaid right next to a deep sea scary mermaid (*insert some meme about goth gfs here*), which is even better. I love the worldbuilding framing the story and especially the voice of the protagonist.

I love the worldbuilding framing the story and especially the voice of the protagonist. "Little Lights" was my least favorite, though still solid. The story just couldn't quite make the floating city work believably for me. "The Bog Hag" felt like the kind of story I would write, all fairytale tropes and subversion. Then "We Deserve a Soft Landing, Love" ripped my heart out—in a fantastic way—I didn't expect any sad stories from this collection, but this was wonderfully written despite its rocky start. The final story in the collection, "Flower Crown," is significantly longer than the others. Unfortunately, I think it suffered for it. I think a lot of the problems I had with it (mostly about the parent characters coming across as very clunky) could have been avoided by paring it down. I definitely recommend this collection, though by my estimate the first story in it is the best thing it offers.
