Towering | Alex Flinn
11 posts | 13 read | 6 to read
New York Times #1 bestselling author Alex Flinn reimagined the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast in Beastly and gave a twist to the story of Sleeping Beauty in A Kiss in Time. Now with her gothic and darkly romantic YA novel Towering, Alex Flinn retells the tale of Rapunzel. When Rachel was taken to live in a tower by a woman she calls Mama, she was excited. She felt like a princess in a castle. But many years later, Rachel knows her palace is really a prison, and begins to plan her escape. She is encouraged by the speed with which her golden hair has been growing. It's gotten long enough to reach the ground. And she's begun dreaming of a green-eyed man. Could he be out there in the world? Is he coming to save her? Or will she find a way to save herself?

Mehso-so

This was a strange, but unique take on Rapunzel, featuring missing girls, magical drugs, and domestic violence. The writing isn't that great, but the story kept me intrigued, mostly because of how weird it was. Be warned though, it is heavy on the instalove, which I had to whistle past to get through lol I did like that there were lots of bookish references (and Star Trek refs too, oddly enough) and a Rapunzel character with agency.

Something about winter always makes me crave fairytales. Just settling in with this Rapunzel retelling.

Addison_Reads I love fairytale retellings. I haven't heard of this one. I'll have to check it out. 1mo
ShyBookOwl @Addison_Reads me too. I didn't know much going in but it has a missing girl mystery built in and it's drawing directly on Wuthering Heights too 1mo
ChasingOm Ooh, I love them too! And I‘m jealous of your snow. ❄️❄️❄️ 1mo
ShyBookOwl @ChasingOm it's pretty... until Dec 26. Then I want autumn back lol 1mo

I love the twist on the tale of Rapunzel. I love how the description made me feel like it was actually winter.
