    Top Ten Books I've Recently Put on My Wishlist
    Title:  Stealing Snow 
    Author:  Danielle Page
    Genre:  YA FairyTale Retelling
    Release Date:  2016 by Bloomsbury Children's
    Reminiscent of Wicked and Maleficent, in Stealing Snow, seventeen-year-old Snow escapes a mental institution in upstate New York and ends up lost in Algid, a Winterland of ice. Confronted with a past she never knew she’d had, in a strange world that mirrors her dreams, Snow meets the River Witch who tells of a prophecy: Snow must save this mysterious frozen land from the evil King Lazar and claim it for her own or she will never escape Algid. As pieces of her life at the asylum and this new place start to weave together in disturbing ways, Snow seeks safety from kind, handsome young Kai. But who can she really trust and at what price? This gripping, re-imagination of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen is equal parts romance and fairy tale—a quest to fulfill a destiny that may not go where the heart leads…and the dark twists and turns it sometimes takes to get there.

    London, April 1812. Eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Wrexhall is on the eve of her debut presentation to the Queen. Her life should be about gowns and dancing, and securing a suitable marriage. Instead, when one of her family's housemaids goes missing, Lady Helen is drawn to the shadows of Regency London.

    There, she finds William, the Earl of Carlston. He has noticed the disappearance, too, and is one of the few who can stop the perpetrators: a cabal of powerful demons that has infiltrated every level of society. But Lady Helen’s curiosity is the last thing Carlston wants—especially when he sees the searching intelligence behind her fluttering fan. Should Helen trust a man whose reputation is almost as black as his lingering eyes? And will her headstrong sense of justice lead them both into a death trap?
