Good Twist on a Classic
Disenchanted: Not Your Typical Fairy Tal... Disenchanted: Not Your Typical Fairy Tale Romance - Susan Carroll

Ella Upton lost her fairy tale life years earlier. Now she’s embittered about her lot in life. When a ball is being held by the king, it looks like she will be forced to do what she must to make sure her step-sisters get to go.

I was apprehensive about this story. Any time an author takes liberties with classics, I grit my teeth and hope it’s something I can read. After looking at other reviews, I got a little worried. However, after I began to read the story, all my worries were swept aside. I absolutely loved Ella’s character and the new take on her step-mother and step-sisters. I liked the world the author created with a classic great. I can’t wait to read the next part of this story to see what happens to Ella next.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

THE BEAST'S DESIRE by Emerald Ice
The Beast's Desire - Emerald Ice
  A different take on Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed it. I was surprised by the "Beast." I liked how instinctive protecting each other was for them. The story held my interest. I wanted to know more of this community.

The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson $1.99
The Beautiful Pretender (A Medieval Fairy Tale) - Melanie Dickerson

 

After inheriting his title from his brother, the margrave has two weeks to find a noble bride. What will happen when he learns he has fallen for a lovely servant girl in disguise?

 

The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble born ladies who meet the king’s approval to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test these ladies and reveal their true character.

 

Avelina has only two instructions: keep her true identity a secret and make sure the margrave doesn’t select her as his bride. Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught. No one must know she is merely a maidservant, sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea.

 

Despite Avelina’s best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can’t deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worse—far deadlier—consequences

Hansel and Gretel - Ronne Randall,Erica-Jane Waters

This traditional fairy tale would be perfect for a lesson on morals. It is easy yet challenging to determine the moral of this story. You could also use this book to address the sequence of events. It could also be used to determine right and wrong. The possibilities are endless with this book. It is leveled 430 L.

One Book I wish I'd Quit Early On
Cruel Beauty - Rosamund Hodge

Audiobook

Narration 4 stars

Book 1.4 stars

Major negative for me: rehashing details over and over.

The MC has some seriously crazy personality disorder going on. I love him, no I hate him, no I love that one, no I hate that one, I will never betray him, oh I need to betray him, I love my sister, I hate my sister, hate/love flick flick flick flick the dark lord is my enemy, love, enemy , love.... Her failing poetic inner dialog ramblings rehashed over and over Omg save me from this woman ! AUGGHHHHHHH.......AGRUHHHHHHHHHHHHH ! (phew) That felt good. It's amazing what running down the street screaming at the top of your lungs will do will a soul. I know there are many who enjoyed this but this MC hit almost every one of my "oh hell no" buttons. 

I didn't like it at all. I had hope early on but found too many of my pet peeves to find a happy place. This is not the author for me obviously.
