Nimona -  Noelle Stevenson

I picked up this book because GoodReads kept recommending it to me and I saw it at my library. I adored this story by the time I finished reading the last page. Lord Blackheart and Knight Goldenloin (hehehehe) had a wonderful romance journey. I will admit to loving Blackheart right from the beginning, not so Nimona - it took a while for me to warm up to her, but by the end I wanted her to burn EVERYTHING down. This takes the basic fairy tale structure and subverts it in small, modern ways that make the reading fun.
