You've no idea how good it feels to be blogging once again!! With the stress of moving, mostly, behind me I can finally get my hands on a laptop and share with you guys once more. The next in our Fairytale retellings by Jackson Pearce is Sweetly based on Hansel and Gretel. This book is set in the sa...

The story was good at first. The mystery aspect of the story and the scary moments were well done and gave me the heebie jeebies. I was sort of hoping for a sequel to Sisters Red but knew this wasn’t the case as I read the summary before so I was mildly disappointed. Although it’s nice to see fairy...

I had a hard time writing a review for this. I don't have any strong feelings attached to Sweetly, so I don't quite know what to say.Let me start with the good. Jackson Pearce's writing varies for me; in some of her work, it is subpar (Sisters Red), in some it is amazing (As You Wish). In this parti...

General info: This book was purchased on 6/20/13. I am using it to satisfy the "once upon a time" category of the February book blast because it is a fairy tale retelling (specifically, Hansel and Gretel). Jackson Pearce threw a bit of a twitter tantrum earlier this week, although that's not why...

I'm having a hard time rating this book. I did have really high hopes for it but it turned out to be an ok book.I really liked Pearce writing for the most part. It was a bit hard for me to get into the story at the begining but the mystery surrounding the characters made me want to read on. I have...

3.5 / 5I really enjoyed Sweetly, the second brilliant fairy tale retelling by Jackson Pearce. It's a riveting story of the brother-and-sister duo, Ansel and Grethen. A story you think you know, but really, you don't.I love love love the way this book ties in with Sisters Red, it was unexpected and w...

Jackson Pearce has captivated me again with her fabulous fairytale retellings! I love that she seems to pick the less obvious tales - not that people have never heard of Hansel and Gretel (or Little Red Riding Hood) - but they're not the first ones people draw from. Sweetly is exactly the sort of st...
