    1. The Little Queen by Meia Geddes is the author’s second book. Geddes is also an artist, folding intricate paper cranes. She sometimes binds her own little booklets complete with her own watercolor birds. Her previous book Love Letters to the World is a collection of lyrical letters written as poetry. Geddes is also working her her way to becoming a world-class librarian.I usually don’t read contemporary fiction, especially if it is written as a fable (think children’s story). Fables seemed [...]


    2. Thank you, Poetose Press and NetGalley, for my eARC of The Little Queen. I really appreciate the chance to read and review it early.The Little Queen by Meia Geddes starts with two simple sentences that lay the basis for the entire story: "On a little world, upon a little hill, a little tear fell down a little face. A little girl was now a little queen." The story follows a little queen who lost her parents and is now trying to figure out how she can be a little queen, and if it’s something sh [...]


    3. I was really intrigued by this though Netgalley marketed it as poetry which technically it is not? Still the writing is lyrical and has so many metas you will fall in love. The Little Queen is about the little queen thinking she doesn't know how to be a queen in her kingdom, so she sets on an adventure throughout the world to meet new people. She grows from these encounters and learns so many new things. She finds many friendships and even love. I want to shout because I didn't know this was F/F [...]


    4. This review originally appeared on Novel Ink.I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I hadn’t previously heard much about The Little Queen, but I stumbled across it during one of my Netgalley requesting sprees recently (come on, you know you’ve gone on those) and saw that many of my friends had read it. I discovered an adorable, fluffy novella that also wove in some deeper themes. Head up, this is [...]


    5. *Thank you to Poetose Press and NetGalley for an eARC of this book. This review is my full and honest opinion.*Actual Rating: 4This book was so precious.Growing up, I listened to the same fairy tales as everyone else - Cinderella and Aladdin and The Sleeping Beauty - but they were never my favorites. My favorite was The Light Princess, a Scottish story about a princess who was cursed to be unaffected by gravity.For some reason, this book brought me back - way back - to my childhood days, and The [...]


    6. I was provided a copy through Net Galley in exchange of an honest review.This was a quick and absolutely delightful read. We follow the adventures of a little queen who just lost her parents and don't know how to be a little queen. This is a story about self-discovery, friendship, grief, love, and everything that makes us human. The poetic writing kind of reminded me of The Little Prince, stating deep thoughts about humans, relationship, life etc through simple sentences. The writing was absolut [...]


    7. Bless this cute f/f fairytale with incredible writing, so light and too adorable to handle. The world needs more books like this.The Little Queen follows the little queen after she loses her parents and finds herself as the new queen of her kingdom. But she's unsure of herself, not confident she can fill that position, so she starts a journey to help her be a better little queen. In the road she finds more than what she wished for; new friends, love, cultures it's enchanting to read. This storyt [...]



    8. I really loved this book! It's a very quick read but so beautifully written. I'll write a more detailed review on my blog very soon!


    9. Rating: 4.5 Stars: ★★★★ 1/2The Little Queen reads very much like a timeless fairy tale~ The writing is simple, but delivers magic & wonder with each page~ This was a beautifully written +feminist/female-driven & diverse fantasy novella!We follow The Little Queen as she travels across her kingdom when she finds herself unsure of whether she can even be a queen! Along the way she meets new friends & learns more about life, her world, and where she is meant to be!There's also an [...]


    10. DNF at 44%.Once upon a time there was a little princess who became a little queen when both her parents died unexpectedly. Grieving, lost, and confused, the little queen decides to embark upon a great adventure, traveling the world to learn more about her subjects - and perhaps persuade one of them to take her place. She is not quite sure what a queen does, but whatever it is, she does not think it for her. And so she comes to meet the book sniffer, the dream writer, the sawyer, and the foreshad [...]


    11. Well, that was beautifully, dreamily weird.In the simplest of terms, this is a story about a Little Queen who wanders her kingdom - and the world - after her parents die, in order to learn what it actually means to be a Little Queen. But as a summary, that really does the book no justice. The Little Queen - who is never named - meets such people as the Tree Masseuse and the Book Shouter; she travels around the world with a woman made of string, and falls in love with the Digital Sounds Collector [...]


    12. The Little Queen is one of the most beautiful books I have read this year. It also has a half-chapter turn on a poop joke. This dichotomy is one of the reasons I love it so much.To start, we have a little queen, who loses her parents and sets out to find out who she is, what she's about, and how, in fact, to be a little queen. She learns much about being just about everyone else in the world--book sniffers, season painters, animal singers and other curious folks--but still, in the end, does not [...]


    13. I received this ARC courtesy of Net Galley. Make sure to get your copy when it comes out tomorrow, August 1st!The Little Queen was a lovely, unique bit of lyrical prose. The plot was simplistic but powerful–it was reminiscent of a childhood fairy tale in the best possible way. Although it was almost too adorable to handle at times, the theme of self-discovery was quite mature and thought-provoking. I thoroughly enjoyed the Little Queen’s journey and the cast of diverse characters she interac [...]


    14. This is a very odd novella. It starts out with beautiful wording about a princess who loses her parents and becomes the little queen. It's hard to understand or get to know the little queen and she goes on odd "adventures" meeting a book sniffer, wall sawyer, leaf gluer, seasons painter, fish talker, dream writer, Dream counter, window builder, the lotioner, plant whisperer, perfumer, sleep soother, poop encourager among others. There isn't much depth given to the main character and she tries to [...]


    15. The Little Queen has lost her parents and left to be Queen. She does not want to be Queen so she goes on a series of journies to find someone to take her place. She meets lots of interesting characters and learns more about the world outside of her walls.In an Oyster Shell - I didn't understand the purpose of the book and it was inconsistent in the message.The Pearls - The Little Queen is lyrical and imaginative. It's short so can easily be read in one sitting.Full Review: Writing Pearls


    16. A really unusual and charming book, this feels older than it is if that makes sense, very classic and with lots of meaning and messages throughout. It's a hard one to put into words, but a definite must read. A really beautiful book!


    17. Read this as our first book for book club! A sweet little story with many life lessons (or thoughts on life I suppose) woven through. Reminded me of The Little Prince in the format. We talked about it for a long time, could've talked hours more!


    18. This was a very strange book and I honestly didn't get the jist of it. There were some little details that I did like but the majority of the time it just felt like some weird philosophical writing. All I could keep thinking is what the hell is this


    19. This was a cute story that read as a fairytale. I loved how it was narrated and that it was a trip of self discovery but it felt too bizarre at points. The fact that it had such a sweer f/f romance was a welcome surprise as well!



    20. Beautifully written, quirky, moving, and fun. The illustrations are gorgeous. I read it in one sitting. The book reminded me of Shel Silverstein's famous quest story "The Missing Piece."


    21. This story is beyond precious. It is lyrical, sweet, and amazingly affirmative. It is everything I wish I was read as a child, and everything I can read to my future, way in the future, children. There is a f/f relationship in it, there are people embodying their own choices, and the acceptance of those living in their own skin. Topping it all off is the absolutely wonderful way it is written, and the voice within. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from [...]


    22. The Little Queen is a beautiful children’s story about a girl who becomes a little queen upon the death of her parents. She does not want to be a little queen and sets out on an adventure to try to find someone who would like to be a little queen. Along the way, she meets many characters whose names define what they do, but it is rude in the kingdom to ask someone what they do. The explanation is one of my favorite lines:“Asking what one did was like asking who they were, and that was too si [...]


    23. I received an eARC of this from netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewOkay so in all honesty, I just couldn't finish this. It just got boring and confusing. At first it seemed cute and kinda whimsical, but then it just fell so flat I stopped caring. I'm not going to rate this because I came nowhere close to finishing it was couldn't give it an honest rating.
