This sounds like a cute story, maybe a little bittersweet? #lamp #coverlove

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 2mo

#SpringSkies Day 22: It‘s a #Tragedy to tell stories wrong. Lols. Book presents given to me by my PhD student who came to visit from Sharjah. The absolute sweetest.

A quick MG re-telling of the Snow White story. It was cute, and I‘ll likely read more in the series (Book 1 of the series #SeriesLove2024). The main character is a spunky, logical pre-teen girl, going on 30. 🤣.

Hey! Guess what?! The sky isn‘t really falling.

I liked this take on an old classic.

1. Too many to choose from, but random brain flash has me typing about “post-modern“ fairy tales like the Stinky Cheese Man and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs.

2. Elton John concert when I was 10. My mom was very appropriate around us, so I got a kick watching her sing along to “The Bitch Is Back“ like being able to curse was a treat she was going to take full advantage of 😅

3. Might have been seeing Amos Lee with the Vail Orchestra

WildAlaskaBibliophile Ahh, yes! And the Boyz II Men concert with the Colorado Symphony as well! 9mo

Reading this before I put it out in the LFL - I am laughing so hard at the picture of The Pigeon. 😂

I'm not really sure what the moral of the story here is. Certainly, I'm concerned that the wolves just forgave the pig without the pig apologizing or providing redress. On the other hand, I was delighted by how surprising the book was. I mean really, I should have seen the dynamite coming and YET. Trivizas as a children's book author is an odd duck, since his day job is as a legal scholar in criminology. 😵

#DivineDecember Day 22: This story features a witch named Willow as the protagonist, rather than Hansel and Gretel. Willow the Witch, was long-suffering and patient. She even offered to prepare a hearty meal for the siblings when she saw them trying to eat up her #gingerbread house. Rather than be upset, she offered a feast for them instead. See here for my review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-kEy
