Wasnt my favorite of the series, but still a good read. Probably because Tangled wasnt my favorite movie either. And Id say this whole series could fill #CoverCrush for #Booked2020
#Book4of100

Cinfhen Definitely works for that prompt 💜 2w
BarbaraTheBibliophage These are great covers! 2w

@4thhouseontheleft a sneak peek of what's under the dust jacket on my library's copies of the first 3 books. I agree with @Cinfhen #GetMayaTheHardCovers

4thhouseontheleft Oh, dear, now you‘re both ganging up on me. That is tempting though! 2w
LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft I have the complete series. I had one galley that I gave a way and bought the matching hardcover because of the undercovers. So yeah, I joined the gang. 2w

This one explained how Maleficent became evil and why she really got so mad about not being invited to Sleeping Beautys party that day. It connected well with the others but I wanted more information on why the odd sisters did what they did to Curve

4thhouseontheleft I love the covers on these books 😍 2w
jessinikkip @4thhouseontheleft so do I! My favorite part is the second picture under the dust jacket!! The Beast cover has the prince, Ursula has her human form, Maleficent has the dragon and Mother Gothel has old Gothel 2w
4thhouseontheleft @jessinikkip I didn‘t know that! My daughter has the paperbacks, so no dust jacket. 😫 2w

Wrapping, but really wanting to read my latest read.

Roary47 Finished this morning! So glad I gave it a chance. I was so concerned in the change of author that I delayed in reading it. 1mo

"She's not mine to kiss... I try not to look at Celine. It makes me sad that she looks like a beautiful doll that should be displayed in a plastic bubble."

Recognizing consent AND averting the male gaze. This Snow White tale might not be perfect, but it has more than one redeeming quality.

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
