A Mirror Mended
A Mirror Mended | Alix E. Harrow
The next installment in USA Today bestselling author Alix E. Harrow's Fractured Fables series! Zinnia Gray, professional fairy-tale fixer and lapsed Sleeping Beauty is over rescuing snoring princesses. Once youve rescued a dozen damsels and burned fifty spindles, once youve gotten drunk with twenty good fairies and made out with one too many members of the royal family, you start to wish some of these girls would just get a grip and try solving their own narrative issues. Just when Zinnias beginning to think she can't handle one more princess, she glances into a mirror and sees another face looking back at her: the shockingly gorgeous face of evil, asking for her help. Because theres more than one person trapped in a story they didnt choose. Snow White's Evil Queen has found out how her story ends and she's desperate for a better ending. She wants Zinnia to help her before its too late for everyone. Will Zinnia accept the Queen's poisonous request, and save them both from the hot iron shoes that wait for them, or will she try another path? At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

⭐️⭐️⭐️
The second of Harrow's Fractured Fables novellas. It is a retelling of Snow White where the Evil Queen is the one needing help.

Enjoyable but not extraordinary. I read it on my flight home yesterday.

I love ❤️ fairy tale retellings! This novella by Alix Harrow has everything I love in a fairy tale remix - misunderstood villains, not-so-heroic heroes, damsels that rescue themselves, and a sci-fi multiverse falling apart.

I picked up this book not realizing it was the second in a series. I will definitely pick up the first while not-so patiently waiting for the next installment. Harrow‘s writing is beautiful and her dialogue clever and funny.

Just finished the audiobook, it was so good! I love a good fairytale retelling, especially when the villain becomes one of the good people. This book has humor, friendship, romance, and adventure. It‘s just lovely and a great listen if you want something short. It‘s a great follow up to the first book. Highly recommend!

I LOVED “Carrie Soto is Back,” omg. 🥰 Now I‘m onto this little novella because it‘s just the right length to get me through the rest of the workday. Alix E. Harrow never disappoints. 💖 #amirrormended #fracturedfables #alixeharrow #reimaginedfairytales

Quickly moved onto the second book in the series. They are short and funny. I wonder what the next fairy tale will be.

tpixie Unfortunately, she has said this is all of this series. But she is still writing at least! 4mo

This was a fun and thought provoking twist on the classic fairytale Snow White, where the villain becomes the protagonist of the story. Very cute and fun.

This was a fun quick listen. This is book 2 of the Fractured Fables series of novellas, where a woman with a terminal illness becomes part of the fairy tales she loves. This continues her story and they should be read in order. Also finished this fun butterfly puzzle while listening! 4⭐️

I really enjoy this series and hope to see it continue. Here, Harrow moves from Sleeping Beauty stories to Snow White. I love the twist she uses in the main story. It‘s a good way to demonstrate looking at things in a different way.

SO in LOVE with this series! I honestly couldn't say whether A Spindle Splintered or A Mirror Mended is my favourite at this point, but though the author has successfully left these main characters in a good place for two separate book endings, I would happily see them going on further adventures. #feministfantasy #queercharacters #fairytaleretelling #fantasynovella

I really enjoyed these books. I'm so sad I don't have another one to read.

Does the villain know they're the villian?

Not sure if I enjoyed this one as much as the first. The big life lesson Zinnia had to learn was a lesson I thought she would have learned years ago, but as I've never lived with terminal illness, I could be mistaken. I think I also just missed Charm. 😭 #fantasy #fairytales #retelling

The synopsis really interested me, but by the end I was left wanting more. The basic story was enjoyable, but there were aspects of it that I liked but that seemed to be given little attention. I wasn't a big fan of Zinnia‘s either. There was just something about her I didn't like. I did enjoy the audiobook, in the sense that I enjoyed Landon‘s narration. I liked the voices she used for the various characters, as well as the tone and inflection.

tpixie The narrators voice reminds me of Jamie Lee Curtis‘! 4mo

A modern Sleeping Beauty ends up in the Multiverse of Snow Whites. And discovers villainy and innocence can be more than they seem.

A delightful return to this world! We‘ve got a time skip, but we get the story of the past in bits and pieces so we‘re not overwhelmed. We‘ve got character development, examinations of Snow White differences, & several laugh out loud moments. I‘m not sure how a third would work, but I want it desperately. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Twainy I also enjoyed this story!! 8mo
tpixie I‘m finishing it up now! . They are great stories! And if you want to dig deeper, do remind us that their stories were told by males - now looking at these through a modern female‘s eyes really show how women were typecast and abused! 4mo

Second in Harrow's Fractured Fables series, this novella doesn't disappoint. It has a sweet snarkiness that I loved. I think Harrow's series would be a good fit for fans of the Wayward Children series and A Deadly Education.

Another enjoyable addition to this series, but I feel this novella wasn't quite as engaging as the first. The story starts feeling rushed early on and I would have liked a little more time to really get to know the characters.

It's still a fun adventure with great female characters who aren't afraid to take their destinies into their own hands.

TheSpineView Awesome! 8mo

This follow-up novella to A SPINDLE SPLINTERED opens up years-& almost 50 rescues of variations of Sleeping Beauties later. Zinnia hasn‘t seen or spoken to her best friends or parents in months. After a fun celebration, she looks in the mirror & instead of her own reflection, sees a darkly (evilly?) beautiful woman instead. Pulled through to a completely different fairy tale leads to new challenges & feelings. Not quite as charming but still fun!

In this follow up to A Spindle Splintered, Zinnia, a Sleeping Beauty with a fatal disease in our world, has been spending her last year alive traveling to other Sleeping Beauty stories in the multiverse. In A Mirror Mended, Zinna finds herself somewhere stranger—the story of Snow White…and the Evil Queen is actually pretty hot?! I really enjoy the fairy tale multiverse explored here, the different retellings, and the meta nature of this series!

This was just okay for me. I had enjoyed A Spindle Splintered but this sequel fell flat. The new characters didn't feel very fleshed out, even for a novella, and some of the super meta discussion towards the end was a little much for my taste. Still a fun tongue-in-cheek feminist take on fairy tales this time with bonus Hot Evil Queen so I didn't have a bad time reading it, I just didn't love it.

Out on 6/14 🪞

🎧 Zinnia is spending her last year alive traveling through the magic mirror to 49 other “Happy Endings”.

Here‘s Snow White. I love the Zinnia/Evil Queen (Eva) interaction. The message I got was … take control of your life. Make better choices. Be happy.

I enjoyed Eva/Snow White‘s grimdark juxtaposition & the slow realization that they‘ve sorta switched demeanors in this version of the story.

Perfect length & narration.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Good morning! Let‘s do some recommending!

1. I‘m not quite done with the last one, but I have really loved the Hell‘s Library trilogy by AJ Hackwith!
2. Please, for the love of all that is good and bright in the world, everyone needs to try Tamora Pierce at least once!
3. I preordered this the moment I finished the first one. 😅

#SundayFunday Have a wonderful day everyone, and don‘t forget to tag me!

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ooh - nice, I have the first one out from the library at the moment - this is a nice push towards making time to read it! 11mo
Vansa Tamora Pierce is incredible. And not as famous as she should be. Genuinely feminist fantasy, and not an overlong pretentious drag where the default is still assumed to be male ( I'm looking at you, Left hand of darkness😂) 11mo
