    One thought on “Nameless”

    1. I really am torn as to what rating to give this book. It's an interesting concept, I loved the writing. However, after having finished the story, I still have no idea what the big reveal is and what it means, the book is that confusing. So, excellent writing, excellent atmosphere, interesting characters, wtf-world building, and a plot that makes my head spin. This is supposed to be a retelling of Snow White; if so, there must be a pretty big wiggle room for writers' creativity. Had I not known i [...]

    2. Nameless is a bit like billowing, amazing clouds on a warm sunny day. It’s nice. Just really nice, you know? Sure, it doesn’t move fast and clouds aren’t the most gripping things to look at, but it was just really nice. God I really liked Nameless and I really like clouds. They’re so magical.Unless they’re giving you goatse. Don’t look that up if you don’t know what it is btw.Nameless wasn’t a perfect novel, but it was an enjoyable novel. I feel like most of the things it set out [...]

    3. Okay. I need to get this out.WHYYYYY.What promised to be a beautiful book filled with danger and excitement and a stunning world just flopped right before my eyes. I kept reading and reading, and as I crept through the book I kept thinking to myself, it has to get better by now. It has to. ONLY NOPE. Some of the descriptions were pretty. Not that they made all that much sense. The situation that Cami finds herself in had real potential to be interesting! Only for Cami to be severely underutilize [...]

    4. See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads DNF. Mini-mini review (There are mini reviews, then there are mini mini reviews which are like 3 paragraphs long)Stopped at 31% It has come to my great despair to not finish this book. I have heard several great thoughts and reviews ofStrange Angels so I assumed this would be just as good or even better. Well.ybe not. Originally, I started to read this book about a month ago, I stopped within 5 pages due to its mind fumbling writing and slow pace. At her pic [...]

    5. Trigger warnings: childhood trauma, death of a parent, abusive step-parent. The main character has a lot of scars from her childhood and she can't remember how she got them. Soooo I picked this one up at work on a whim a month or so ago, and was intrigued by the cover and the fact that it's billed as a dark retelling of Snow White. And, like, it IS a dark retelling of Snow White. That's not the problem (one of the problems) that I had with it. I'm just going to break this down into a list of iss [...]

    6. 2.5 stars reallyr what it could have been.If I could use one word to describe this book, I would use potential. It has an intriguing premise. The characters might easily have been something worthwhile. The familiar yet unique way of approaching the story of Snow White is both haunting and comfortable. Oh yes, this could have been something good. Yet I would argue is not. It is confusing. The characters are not properly developed, important plot points not explained. I really liked the ending, bu [...]

    7. Up to chapter 5 and this book is just HORRIBLE. I mean I can tell there's a story under there somewhere and it might even be interesting, if I could only make an iota of sense out of anything that is written!St Crow has set up a magical world and jumped in with terminology from the get-go with words than have no context, no explanation, no meaning with the reader. “Ellie would use her Babbage-net connection—St. Juno’s required one and logged student times, and the principal Mother Heloise [...]

    8. Truth be told, I opened this review with: this is not your ordinary retelling of a beloved fairy tale, then deleted it altogether because even that line seems like a tired old phrase used to describe every single retelling that's ever grazed our shelves. I also wrote, this is Snow White like you've never seen her before, but then I read the book's jacket and it has the exact same quote from someone or other.If you ask me to give you a little rundown of this book, then I'll have to decline becaus [...]

    9. Ich hab das heute im Bus gelesen und bin mehrmals eingeschlafen. Das Buch war so schlecht, das ich das erst mal verarbeiten muss :OEdit: Rezension - Lesen auf eigene Gefahr! xDtanjaisaddictedto/

    10. Oooh what to say? I struggled to rate this book because there were definitely aspects of it that I loved and some that I hated altogether. I fell in love with St. Crow's Strange Angels series and have been desperately hoping that each new YA book she writes will somehow come close to that series. It seems I'm doomed to disappointment, or at least I am with this particular series and the Romances of Arquitaine series.Unfortunately, it seems Ms. St. Crow creates a more compelling story when she is [...]

    11. OOOH!!! Fairytale + dark retelling + Lili St. Crow= pure awesomeness! but it better not have an ending like Strange Angels. No. Just NO.

    12. Disclaimer: This is not a review of the entire book. I decided to DNF on page 102, so you are about to read my thoughts about the portion of the book I read not as a review, but as a record-keeper if I ever decide to come back to this.I was really looking forward to this one, so I was slightly upset once I began reading it. I've never read anything by Lili St. Crow before so I don't know if this was just a bad book for an amazing author or if her writing is normally like this. There are several [...]

    13. This book had a lot of potential. The world building and the whole magical element would have been great if only the author would have explained things better. I don't really need a word-by-word description of every strange thing, but give me something! It was very frustrating to have to keep guessing and trying to imagine what everything was and even looked like. I would have still given this book a better rating except I got really annoyed with the MC. She kept doing all the obviously wrong th [...]

    14. Unfortunately this was one I didn't finish (DNF). It wasn't for a lack of an interesting storyline, because I was into it. But for me, it was a matter of trying to accomplish too many things at once and overwhelming and confusing your reader (ie. Me).I'm uncertain as to whether this would have made more sense to me if I'd have just pushed on, but I got to page 117 of 304, so at least a third of the way through and still was extremely confused at all the terminology being thrown around without ex [...]

    15. 2.5 stars. Read the review on my blog here.I’m going to try and frame my thoughts about Nameless in a coherent manner, because I really liked it up until the climax. Then I was raging as I read to the end. I so so badly wanted to like it, because Lili St Crow has a way of writing addictive stories and this was no exception. Just… THAT ENDING. I feel like it would have sat better with me any way except the way it actually went.≫ THE PLOT:I’m not gonna lie, this book is very slow going. Li [...]

    16. I LIKED IT. I WILL NOT APOLOGISE. I AM SUITABLY EMBARRASSED AND AM UNSURE HOW TO JUSTIFY THIS IN A 'REVIEW'. IT'S Y.A. AND EVERYTHING YOU'D EXPECT FROM THE GENRE. AND I ENJOYED IT, DAMMIT. CAPSLOCK.i'm going to approach this in mostly point form. i don't know how to approach this one so i'm going to do it in a choppy 'just putting thoughts on paper' way. the good, the bad and the uglyE GOOD- the protagonist stutters! AWESOME. when i was young i had a stammer that resurfaced for a bit in my early [...]

    17. This is a dark fairy tale retelling that has everything! It’s got witches, fairies and vampires. It’s a really cool concept! When I first received this book I was so excited to read it! The cover is amazingly cool, the synopsis sounds dark and interesting, and Lili St. Crow has a very good reputation for writing excellent young adult series. While I did really like this story and I found myself very intrigued by the world that Crow has created, at the same time there were a lot of things tha [...]

    18. I don't think I've ever been so confused about a book as this one. The world building was seriously lacking to the point where I had to stop, put down the book for a minute and do quick search online to see if I'm actually reading the 1st book in the series (which I was). Nothing about this world is really explained, there are different creatures in the book (at least I think they're creatures) called Twisted and Jacks and there are Potentials (which I think are human, kind of like witchesI thin [...]

    19. Camille Vultusino should want for nothing. Her papa, Enrico Vultusino, is one of the living Seven Families and gives her nothing but the best. Enrico’s son, Nico, would give his life to protect Cami from anything that tried to harm her. But Cami doesn’t know who she is. Found bloody and abandoned in the middle of the snow when she was six years old, Cami has no recollection of her parents, her home or anything in her life before Papa found her. Now ten years on, Cami has two best friends (Ru [...]

    20. 3 1/2 stars Nameless is the first book I have read by Lili St. Crow and the first two words which popped to mind after reading it was strange and unusual. It was a book which confused me but also mesmerised me, I was intrigued by the creativity and spectacular world created but also wanted and needed more in terms of explanation.Nameless was inspired by the Brothers Grimm story, Snow White which I have always loved but it certainly didn’t depict the story in quite the same way, I really enjoye [...]

    21. Actual Rating: 1.5/5No matter how much money she has in her purse, or how protected she is as a Vultusino, Cami knows that she's different from everyone around her. For starters, she doesn't have fangs, and once she's dead, she's staying put in her coffin, thank you very much. Cami thinks that she is living a lie, and when the mysterious new gardener makes her question everything she's been keeping inside, Cami's not going to stay put within the Vultusino territory when she could have actual ans [...]

    22. I don't have a lot of thoughts on this book so I'm just gonna keep my review short. It has only a two-star rating because although the story was very dark and intriguing it had a very slow pace and I couldn't help dozing off a few times. It just didn't hold my attention. Quick OverviewCami was found in the snow at six years old and adopted by the well-known Vultusino Family. She stutters when she talks and only opens up to her best friends, Ruby and Ellie, and her step-brother Nico (who may or m [...]

    23. Filled with blood, snow, and mysterious characters NAMELESS is a much much darker version of Snow White - but as a lover of fairytale retellings, the words Snow White alone were enough to pull me in. When Camille was six, she was found in the snow by Enrico Vultusino. Now, Cami is sixteen and lives as a Vultusino heiress. But something is happening, and Cami's carefully built world is beginning to crumble. Enter Tor, a mysterious garden boy, who has scars of his own, and who seems to hold the ke [...]

    24. Major Selling Points: Fairy Tale Retelling It's always exciting when one of the tales you love and grew up with gets a new interpretation. Snow White is a story I know well but never remember really watching/seeing. And a retelling where the dwarves sound like mob bosses and Snow (Camille) is raised by one of them that also has a sort of dark sound to it is something I want to experience.Mysterious Past A little girl found in the snow with scars, trauma and no memory. Who is she? Where did she c [...]

    25. I loved this book. Full of rich characters, fairy tales, hints of what's next of who the other two girls are. Paranormal creatures, kinda steampunk (ish) maybe? Cami was actually really cute and i dont usually like female heroines. Nico wasoh yeah, love him. The "Family" conceptEverything, i loved it. Period.

    26. I wanted to love this book. I really did. The potential was there, but the world building wasn't. So much was left unexplained as if I was just supposed to know. Too little detail left me wanting more than was given. I did love the characters and the friendship that built throughout the book. But, even that wasn't enough for me to love this book. I find it just meh which makes me sad.

    27. Camille is part of one of seven the most powerful and wealthy Families that rule over New Haven. It wasn't always that way. She was found when she was 6 years old, cold, mute, abused, scarred, and injured in the snow. The Vultisino, the leader of this particular Family, adopted her as his own daughter. Cami is now sixteen and no longer mute, although she still has a stutter that makes it difficult for her to speak. She goes to school, has two friends: Ruby and Ellie, and grew up a pampered heire [...]

    28. Nameless is the most gripping and original take on “Snow White” that I have read. The Disney version, with its silly dwarves and cute woodland critters, makes it tempting to approach the tale with something whimsical and light-hearted in mind, even in spite of the more gruesome aspects of the plot. Or, unless you are Tolkien, the presence of dwarves alone can become problematic. Serious, solemn dwarves have not been done better, though other authors such as C. S. Lewis have of course written [...]
