Girls Made of Snow and Glass
- By: Melissa Bashardoust
- Narrated by: Jennifer Ikeda
- Length: 12 hrs and 54 mins
At 16, Mina's mother is dead, her magician father is vicious, and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone—has never beat at all, in fact, but she'd always thought that fact normal. She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass. When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time, Mina forms a plan: win the king's heart with her beauty, become queen, and finally know love. The only catch is that she'll have to become a stepmother.

This was one of my most anticipated reads and I'm so glad I chose to listen to it as an audiobook because the format made me slow down and really savour the rich prose and terrific character development. One of the best queer fairytale retellings I've ever read.
