Stitching Snow by RC Lewis | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To Stitching Snow by RC Lewis?

Stitching Snow by RC Lewis has a pretty bomb cover, am I right? BUT ALSO, a part of me assumed this would be a sci-fi retelling kind of like Cinder. Of course, that part of me was wrong. But still, I walked into the book all hopeful. I do like a good story about a princess in space though. What gets me the most? When the princess is reluctant and then there’s some double crossing. FRIENDS, SIGN ME UP. And of course, I went for audio because that’s kind of the main way I read books these days — you know me, whittling down my Netgalley queue thanks to Scribd, Overdrive, Audible, and Hoopla.

What’s The Story Here?

Stitching Snow follows main character Essie as she is on this remote planet just doing coding and repairs with seven drones near the local mines. One day though, this guy named Dane crashes right by her home. So, she agrees to help him. Big mistake, huge. In actual fact, he brings her back to her old kingdom and she’s pulled into the drama that she ran away to avoid. Oh wait do you feel like you’re missing some pieces? WELL OKAY. So, Essie is actually Princess Snow. Her father is King Matthias. Her mother, the Queen is dead. So now her stepmother is Queen. Parallel to Snow White, is the fact that her stepmother is, indeed, quite wicked. So, there’s some royal drama up in here.

How Did I Like Stitching Snow?

I think I wanted to like Stitching Snow by RC Lewis more than I did. Please, however, do not assume I disliked this book. On the whole, I did like what I had read. However, I have read better, if that makes sense? I think though if I was one of those people who could not get enough of sci-fi royalty type books, I would enjoy this more. Granted, Essie was an awesome character. I also liked the chemistry in the romance within this book. As a reader though, I never felt all that invested in the outcome, if that makes sense?

How’s The Narration?

Mia Barron narrates the audiobook. Meh, she’s okay. I know, how tepid is that response? But hey, I have my favorite narrates and I kind of think you have to be really, quite special to break into that crew. Would I dissaude someone from listening to Stitching Snow? Heck no! In fact, that’s a great way to have read this book. Will it end up among my favorites of all time? No. Will it end up among my favorites of 2018? No. But you know, I have zero regrets or complaints about the audiobook.
