Welcome to Spence Academy, where young ladies get refined and shit...among other things. "Other things" being "opening portals to magical worlds" and "fighting evil sorceresses". ( )

Compelling first entry in the Gemma Doyle Trilogy. Gemma is sassy and sarcastic. The ending wraps up nicely while still leaving room to wonder what will happen next. ( )

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray was awesome and at the same time I was bummed because it I learned at the end of the book that it was a TRILOGY!! A TRILOGY!! Ugh! I hate getting sucked into series because when I get sucked in I’m sucked in. With A Song of Ice and Fire I was dreaming about King’s landing and Dany and all of them. It’s terrible..any way, rant aside I’m going to try something new with my reviews…I’m going to add this terrible thing called structure to my chaos.

Plot Summary


A Great and Terrible Beauty is about a young girl who has lived most of her life in India with her parents. Once she turns 16 though a terrible tragedy occurs and she is sent back to Victorian England and finishing school. She’s also having crazy visions that have a bad habit of coming true. While at school she is originally cast as an outcast but through wit and courage she manages to win the friendship of some of the more influential girls. She also discovers a magical realm that only she can access and which is in trouble. All in all she has quite a bit on her plate for a 16 year old girl.

What I Liked

The title didn’t refer to the girls…that made me happy
The main character..Gemma was a witty girl even if she was rather annoying the first few pages. But she was a real character and that’s what made her awesome
I liked the slight feminist tones to the book, all the girls are rebelling against what society tells them they MUST be-good wives. They all want to be their own person
The magic was cool, but when is it not?
It was fast paced and moving
What I Didn’t Like

It was a little to predictable, I felt like I was figuring things out a little too quicky
I didn’t like Felicity’s character, I felt like she flip-flopped too much
Other than that though i’ll give the book 4/5 and once the prices go down on the ebooks or I can get my hands on the other two via work I will happily finish the trilogy!
Happy Readings!

**edit** 4/13/17 - I'm lowering my rating to 3-stars because there are some things in there that can be considered harmful or problematic.

Keeping this a 5 star because it's just as wonderful as I remember. I think I'll write a proper review later.

Fantasy is definitely not my favorite genre. I blame this entirely on my own lack of ability when it comes to picturing impossible scenarios and imaginary creatures. Still, I enjoyed this book. I liked the four main characters and the boarding school setting. I don't know if I'll continue on with the series or not; I feel like there's definitely more to Ms. Moore's story than we know, and I assume that'll be explored more in the second and third books, which makes me tempted to continue on.

There she weaves by night and day
A magic web with colours gay.
She has heard a whisper say,
A curse is on her if she stay
To look down to Camelot.
She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,
The Lady of Shalott.

And moving through a mirror clear
That hangs before her all the year,
Shadows of the world appear.
There she sees the highway near
Winding down to Camelot...

...

But in her web she still delights
To weave the mirror's magic sights,
For often through the silent nights
A funeral, with plumes and lights
And music, went to Camelot;
Or when the Moon was overhead,
Came two young lovers lately wed.
"I am half sick of shadows," said
The Lady of Shalott.

...

And down the river's dim expanse
Like some bold seer in a trance,
Seeing all his own mischance--
With a glassy countenance
Did she look to Camelot.
And at the closing of the day
She loosed the chain, and down she lay;
The broad stream bore her far away,
The Lady of Shalott.

--from "The Lady of Shalott" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

But forgiveness... I'll hold on to that fragile slice of hope and keep it close, remembering that in each of us lie good and bad, light and dark, art and pain, choice and regret, cruelty and sacrifice.
I'm sorry, Gemma. But we can't live in the light all of the time. You have to take whatever light you can hold into the dark with you.
