Beast | Brie Spangler

I don‘t know what fell first, me or the football.
In theory, it was the football because good old me, all meat and muscle, can‘t be trusted to walk and chew gum at the same time, let alone rescue a misthrown ball.

At last.
At the top of a winding staircase, she‘d found it.
Disregarded by everyone but the aging queen. How could she ever forget the trouble it had caused her?
The mirror.

Cinderella's Shoes | Shonna Slayton
post image

The air chilled Nadzia to her core as she ran down a dark passageway into the deepest part of the castle. A single torch on each wall cast a pale, flickering light on the uneven damp stones.

Cinderella's Dress | Shonna Slayton
post image

Nadzia tucked the cleaning rag into her apron in exchange for her feather duster. She held it out like it was a dance partner and placed her other hand against her chest in mock modesty.

It was four o‘clock when the ceremony was over and the carriages began to arrive. There had been a crowd following all the way, owing to the exuberance of Mariija Berczynskas.

Her Dark Curiosity | Megan Shepherd
post image

The air in my crumbling attic chamber smelled of roses and formaldehyde.
Beyond the frosted windowpanes, the rooftops of Shoreditch stretched toward the east in sharp angles still marked with yesterday‘s snow, as chimney stacks pumped smoke into an already foggy sky.

The Madman's Daughter | Megan Shepherd
post image

The basement hallways in King‘s College of Medical Research were dark, even in the daytime.
At night they were like a grave.
Rats crawled through corridors that dripped with cold perspiration. The chill in the sunken rooms kept the specimens from rotting and numbed my own flesh, too, through the worn layers of my dress.

I‘ve had this on my TBR shelf for quite a while. It was so exciting to finally read it. I loved the character of Feyre. It was such a unique retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I can‘t wait to read the rest of the series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

Theseus

Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour
Draws on apace; four happy days bring in
Another moon; but, oh, methinks, how slow
This old moon wanes! she lingers my desires,
Like to a step-dame or a dowager,
Long withering out a young man‘s revenue.

The first place that I can well remember was a large pleasant meadow with a pond of clear water in it. Some shady trees leaned over it, and rushes and water-lilies grew at the deep end.

We rowed out through the harbor, past bobbing boats weeping rust from their seams, past juries of silent seabirds roosting atop the barnacled remains of sunken docks, past fishermen who lowered their nets to stare frozenly as we slipped by, uncertain whether we were real or imagined; a procession of waterborne ghosts, or ghosts soon to be.

This was an interesting read. It was definitely a different take on the story of Pinocchio. It was very interesting to see the story from the perspective of the Blue Fairy. Overall it was a very fun story to read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The stepmonster is at it again.
Raffles, discount coupons, and magazine sweepstakes lay strewn across the kitchen table. My stepmom sits straight-backed in one of the creaky wooden chairs, delicately cutting out another coupon, dyed blonde hair piled on top of her head in perfect ringlets, lipstick the color of men‘s heartblood.

“Hello,” the young man in the lab coat purred into a round speaker, his hands fidgeting. Ripples of azure light reflected on his cheeks. “Are you awake?” There was no response.

“Lucette? Did you even hear the question?”
Luce had been gazing out the window at the darkened sky sinking over the harbor still dotted with rough floating ice, the mountain walls of shadow-colored spruce and rusty boulders under the greenish, glassy dusk of a coming storm.
