This was an amazing mash-up of a multitude of fairy tales. Throughout the book we stumble upon retellings of many classic and lesser known tales - "The Elves and the Shoemaker," "The Frog Prince," "The Six Swans," "The Golden Bird," and "The Brave Little Tailor." I love how Ms. Flinn updates and cha...

3.5/5 for the actual story. 4/5 because of the audiobook. A delightful listen that is a cute twisted fairy tale and a bit more lighthearted after all some deep reads.

Cloaked was interesting in the fact that Flinn wove so many different tales together to form one retelling. But something was missing. I did not feel a connection with Johnny or Meg. The Prince and Princess of Aloria felt like flat characters. And it was never explained what the villian's motive was...

This is by far my favorite Alex Flinn book! It takes all the elements of lesser known fairy tales and makes a brand new fairy tale! All the characters were great and I loved all the shoe quotes, especially ones I recognized! (Bonus points for quoting Les Miserables AND Into the Woods!)Full review to...

Cloaked is the first Alex Flinn book I’ve read and to be honest I really wished it wasn’t. I have heard so many good things about her other books so wish I had started there because Cloaked just wasn’t for me. To be honest it didn’t hold any interest for me at all. It was slow and boring with a ro...

This was just not a fairy tale re-telling for me. I tried, but couldn't get past the cheesiness of it. And I normally love re-tellings, but they can be a hit or miss for me. This was a miss in that department unfortunately. Another try with another story some other time perhaps. I can't deny that it...

3 12 stars. Every book that I've read by her has needed help with the male main characters. I felt that Johnny needed it less so than Jack but it was still there. I really liked Meg. She was the one shining character in here. Hated Victoriana and her younger brother. They were worthless in my opinio...

Done and dumb.I think it was less the story and more my irritation with the narrator that led me to dislike this book. Sorry, Flinn.Also, there comes a point when there are too many inspirations. This book drew on so many fairy tales that I stopped caring which was which, or which had been complet...
