Review: The Bloody Chamber and Other StoriesUser Review - Natalie - Goodreads
An eerie, lushly written classic collection of fairy tale retellings with a feminist spin. The stories of The Bloody Chamber will haunt me (and probably give me nightmares) for a long time. Read full review
Review: The Bloody Chamber and Other StoriesUser Review - Joshua - Goodreads
