Reference to Slayers, the anime? Lina? You get 5 stars book. I was going to give this a 4 but nope, 5 stars it is (at least I think its hinting at Lina Inverse).
So I had got some books to the library and was about to leave when I noticed some books on display. Becoming the Villainess was one of them. Surprised I'd find a book I haven't heard of. Nice change of pace.
I saw that it was a book of poems concerning, different female villains, fairy tales, and other comic book characters. And so wanted to read this. Plus for some reason, that cover is very beautifully drawn. Reminds me of a character you'd see on the show Once Upon a Time or something.
Anyway, you have short poems concerning many villainesses from comics, to fairy tales, etc like the Selkie Wife, to Wonder Woman, to Perespone, to Lina, Snow Queen, etc. Some were written well and others were weird, but still good. Been a while since I read a book of short poems. Pretty good and the references to the characters in the poems was also good, dark, weird but interesting to read. And at the end, the brief descriptions for each poem helped since I recognized some and others I didn't.
