This is a special kind of retelling. What if, the princess is not to be saved, but the villain? Also, I really enjoyed the main characters. Both are humble, unsure about themselves and their place in the world. I felt so connected to them, and could understand their struggles and insecurities. They way the story is told just felt right, somehow. It's a cruel world, but still I felt save and accepted.

Sace I really enjoy this author. I have not read this one though. 2w
Jari-chan @Sace I do too. She has written so many books, I haven't read them all either. 2w
CatLass007 I‘ve never read anything by this author but she‘s been on my radar for a while. Several of her books are free on Audible, but not this one. I have no excuse not to listen to her free books except I already have more audiobooks and print books than I will ever finish in this lifetime. 6d

Mehso-so

I read this last night before bed. Mistake. I had weird dreams all night. 🤣 Now I‘m dragging today. If I had really enjoyed the book the dragging today would‘ve been worth it. But at best I can say it was so-so. I enjoy reading different takes on fairy tales, but not this one. The world building didn‘t draw me in, and I didn‘t care about the characters-even the dying one. 😬 I think it was too short for what it was trying to accomplish. ⬇️

Cheryl_Russell_BookNotes I won‘t be reading the rest of the series. #fracturedfairytales #fairytaleretelling #alixharrow 1mo

A very interesting reading challenge I'm doing for the SpecFic Buddy Reads group on Goodreads.

I think every teacher in this building deserves free books and more but my spirit animal deserves the world! She was telling me about this amazing series and turns out I added it to my TBR in 2017.

5feet.of.fury A classic! 2mo

Interesting Sleeping Beauty retelling.

Toadling was the victim of a changeling swap. Born the daughter of a king, snatched from her cradle when she was hours old, and raised in the Fae realm, she was sent back to stop the creature left in her place, but she failed. So, she concealed the castle where the creature slept behind a hedge, until they are forgotten. But the story survived.

A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Horrow is a great novella for fans of a fairytale reimagining of Sleeping Beauty. Alix takes a historic fairytale and turns it into a modern telling of the story. The conclusion of the story was terrific. A satisfying, yet unexpected ending, with a beautiful revelation. I love seeing characters grow.

I just found out about the next book in The Queen‘s Council series, coming September 3rd, 2024.

This thrilling reimagining of Princess Aurora wakes her from her fairy tale slumber and places her against a real historical backdrop—with a Disney twist.

The threads of magic are tightly spun, binding princess and exiled spinners into a desperate plot to break the curse before the demon can become a queen of men. But the web of power is dangerously tangled--and they may not see the true pattern until it is unspooled.
