Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow, #1)Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent the majority of her life within the walls of the Whittaker Institute, a high security mental hospital in upstate New York. Deep down, she knows she’s not crazy and doesn’t belong there. When she meets a mysterious, handsome new orderly and dreams about a strange twisted tree she realizes she must escape and figure out who she really is.

Using her trusting friend Bale as a distraction, Snow breaks free and races into the nearby woods. Suddenly, everything isn’t what it seems, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, and she finds herself in icy Algid–her true home–with witches, thieves, and a strangely alluring boy named Kai, none of whom she’s sure she can trust. As secret after secret is revealed, Snow discovers that she is on the run from a royal lineage she’s destined to inherit, a father more powerful and ruthless than she could have imagined, and choices of the heart that could change the fate of everything…including Snow’s return to the world she once knew.

This breathtaking first volume begins the story of how Snow becomes a villain, a queen, and ultimately a hero.

I give the book 3 out of 5 stars! It was a nice read. I like the concept and the characters but I didn’t like the plot. I think it’s flat and there’s little explanation to what’s happening. I had so much expectations while reading the book because I’ve heard great stuff about this book. I enjoyed reading the first few chapters but I didn’t have the motivation to continue reading the chapters so I’ll admit, I skipped a few chapters. Well, not because I think the book’s boring but because the book’s just slow for me. So I had to know what big happens next.

Maybe the book isn’t just for me. Anyway, at least I tried.
