Hello darling readers! April might have flown by, but May trudged along at an unbearable pace. Not much happened this month, except for the fact that I got to see my best friends this week for the first time in 2 months! I didn't think I would be so emotional, but the moment I hugged...

One of the strangest things about this book for me is the fact that the title is literal. There is literally a girl made partly of hawthorn and glass. The girl was literally built by using things such as hawthorn, glass, and other stuff. So, this is the first time I’ve read a book where the title is literal.
Okay. So, somehow I've got to write a review for a book that gave me all the feels. Somehow I've got to convey these feelings through words so that I can convince you to read this book if you haven't already, and I don't know if I'm capable of that. If this review seems a bit all over the place and doesn't necessarily make sense, you know why.

This was another one of my most anticipated books! This cover called my name and the book description reminded me of Nina and Matthias (and who doesn't want more of the enemies-to-lovers trope?).
The moment I saw this cover, I knew I had to read it. The moment I read that it was a Mulan meets Project Runway story, I knew I had to own the physical copy of this book. The hype leading up to this made me so nervous. What if my expectations were too high? What if I expected too much from this book and I end up disappointed? Well, friends, I most definitely was not disappointed.
I knew, just knew, I would regret finishing this as fast as I did. But I literally couldn't help myself, I flew through this book.
