Book Review: A Pocketful of Crows by Joanne M Harris

A friend bought me Joanne Harris’s A Pocketful of Crows for Christmas and I only got round to reading it last weekend. I devoured it in two sittings. It’s not one of my horror books or supernatural stories. It is an adult fairy tale and a beautiful one at that. When I say adult, not one of Anne Rices adult fairy tale content, if you’ve read Sleeping Beauty you’ll know what I mean but it clearly is aimed at adults with the content. It is a perfect Pagan story for us Pagan witches out there. A brown girl without a name falls in love with a prince. She is one of the travelling folk and can change into any creature she wants. Two people from very different worlds fall in love and as the seasons change so do their emotions. It is beautifully and poetically written. I am so glad I have the hard copy and not the kindle one because it’s one for my bookcase to read when the world feels too fast and too modern. It’s a dark fairy tale with anger and revenge as well as a love story. It’s a 5/5. I loved this little pagan story of change, seasons, love and hate.

I'm a horror loving librarian with the need to share reviews of everything horror, gore and spooky related. I'm an avid reader of books, mainly horror, definitely supernatural. I'm a pagan and like to define myself as an eclectic witch. Halloween/Samhain is my favourite time of year from everything pumpkin spiced, the scent of decay and the veil between worlds thinning. So, here we are to share all things blood splattered, things that go bump in the night and crawl out of the darkness.
