Mirror, Mirror: A Twisted Tale | Jen Calonita
27 posts | 21 read | 46 to read
Mirror, Mirror: A Twisted Tale poses the question, what if the Evil Queen poisoned the prince? Following her beloved mother's death, the kingdom falls into the hands of Snow White's stepmother, commonly referred to as "the Evil Queen" by those she rules. Snow keeps her head down at the castle, hoping to make the best of her situation. But when new information about her parents resurfaces and a plot to kill her goes haywire, everything changes for Snow. With the help of a group of wary dwarfs, a kind prince she thought she'd never see again, and a mysterious stranger from her past, Snow embarks on a quest to stop the Evil Queen and take back her kingdom. But can she stop an enemy who knows her every move and will stop at nothing to retain her power... including going after the ones Snow loves?

So if you have watched Snow White and Snow White and the Huntsman, you've read this whole book. There was a few differences, but not much. Only reason I'm giving it a 2 star instead of 1, was because I did like the little back story on the evil queen.

This is a nice retelling of Snow White where the Prince eats the poison apple instead of Snow. My only issue is that I wish that part had been drawn out a little more. It was more of a footnote than a major plot twist.

Finally finished just in time for the January prompt of Fairytale reading by @Charityann
I chose Mirror Mirror. A twisted retelling of Snow White in a world where Snow escapes her Evil stepmother only to find out she has poisoned her Prince Charming and she would do anything to save him.
I enjoyed reading this, I find it interesting to find different ways to retell such classic stories

My first #FairytaleReadingChallenge book for 2022! This month is Snow White. I‘m using this year‘s challenge to read through more of the Twisted Tales sitting on my shelf. This one was fun! It doesn‘t deviate from the original story too much, and this Evil Queen is no Regina from OUAT. Overall a quick, fun Disney retelling with a more empowered Snow. @Charityann

DinoMom The twisted tales are so fun. I haven‘t read this one yet but have enjoyed all the other ones I read to date 11mo
KatieDid927 @DinoMom I didn‘t love the Sleeping Beauty one I read last year, but I really did enjoy this and the Beauty and the Beast retelling. I‘m excited to read more of them! 11mo
KatieDid927 @DinoMom I‘m also VERY excited that there‘s a Princess and the Frog retelling coming out later this year. 11mo
Charityann Yay! I enjoyed this one.😊 11mo

The Snow White story of the Twisted Tales series, what if the Queen poisoned the Prince? I debated between a pick and a so-so on this one. The story was predictable, I saw how the outcome would happen. However, I did enjoy the back story of the evil Queen, how she got there, and the involvement of the magic mirror. For that I rate it a low pick. I always enjoy interesting back stories.

Just found out the 13th Twisted Tales book will be a twist on The Princess And The Frog. It‘s going to be called Almost There written by Farrah Rochon. I don‘t know what the twist will be, but it comes out in 2022. 🐸💋🌟🐊🥘

This was a fun read. It was interesting to see Snow White as the hero, instead of the damsel in distress. It was also interesting to see her relationship with the prince grow throughout the story. I always enjoy reading from the Twisted Tales series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Brilliant Twisted Tale of Snow White. I loved how it went between past and present and gave a back story of the Evil Queen and how she got to power and the story behind her magic mirror.

I love the Twisted Tales series! In this one, the Evil Queen poisons the prince, and Snow White decided to overthrow her and take the crown. A fun read!
#bookspinbonanza #bookspin (my number 20)

TheAromaofBooks Number 20?? Are you done?? 3y
OriginalCyn620 @TheAromaofBooks No! I‘m reading in the order the numbers were drawn, so this is the ninth book I‘ve read from my list. 3y
TheAromaofBooks Ohhh that makes sense!! Still, great progress!! I'm almost done with my fifth book. Still hoping to check off ten of them before the end of the challenge!!! 3y
OriginalCyn620 @TheAromaofBooks I probably could‘ve worded it better 🤦🏻‍♀️ my goal was to read 10 too! 3y
TheAromaofBooks You should have seen me trying to figure out how to list out the order they were drawn in! 😂 3y

An interesting twist on Walt Disney‘s 1937 film. The cover of the book asks the question “What if the Prince gets poisoned instead of Snow White?”. That question doesn‘t get addressed until very close to the end of the book... which is only slightly disappointing. This book also focuses on the concept of “women don‘t need to depend on men to rescue them from everything.”

What if Snow White decided to take her kingdom back? What if the Evil Queen poisoned the prince instead?

I enjoyed the Evil Queen‘s story more than I did Snow White, which is a shame, because Snow also had potential. Ingrid felt more human and more developed because of her flaws and internal conflicts. I wish Snow White was tempted by the “dark side” - perhaps by offering her mother or her prince back. Still, this was an enjoyable read.

Jess_Franzino Glad you liked it! I was intrigued by Ingrid, too! 4y

100% perfect and everything I could ask for in a Snow White retelling (there‘s surprisingly not a lot of those compared to other fairytale retellings). I devoured it in about three hours (spread out throughout the day). Characters were given so much life, some twists here and there (as should be), & flawlessly executed. Might be the best of the “Twisted Tales” series yet. ♥️

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Twisted Tales series! I have been waiting for this one to come out for months since I finished the last 5 in the series and this one didn't disappoint! What if the Evil Queen poisoned the Prince instead of Snow White? I love seeing the other side of the stories that I loved watching as a child. Sucks now I have to wait until October for the new book to come out!

Have managed to get my hands on this book as on Amazon it is saying it will be out on the 21st April, but the release date was actually Monday, (So I don't think so as that means it will be out on Easter Sunday and we all know Thursday is new book day in the UK!!) So if like me you are reading this series then check out your local bookstore or like I did your local Asda

ShyBookOwl Gorgeous cover! 4y
