Blurb

Snow White has lived all her life hoping that someday she will find a way out of her evil stepmother’s clutches. Now it seems her dream of freedom is within her reach. But will she just extend her hand and take what’s hers? Or does fate intervene again, shattering all her hopes?
They call her the Evil Queen, but it’s not her fault that the mirror demands to be fed. She has tried her best to keep Snow safe. Unfortunately, she might not be able to help her wayward stepdaughter anymore. Things are rarely the way they seem. And Snow might have to learn this lesson the hard way.

Coraline - Neil Gaiman
Coraline - Neil Gaiman
Why I haven't read this until now, I will never know, but I am so glad that I did!
It is a fun, magical and slightly scary tale for kids. I was drawn right into this weird world that Coraline has on the other side of a door. I really got to love the cat. What a character he turned out to be! The story itself was a great trip, as you would expect from this author.
Now I want to watch the animated film. Of course, I will be comparing the two.
Until then, read this one if you haven't already. It's one of his better books.

The Witch's Vacuum (And Other Stories) - Terry Pratchett
The Witch's Vacuum Cleaner: Deluxe Hardback Collector's Edition - Terry Pratchett
I got a free audio copy, so I decided to give it a whirl. I'm so glad I did! What magic lies within!!
It is a great anthology of short stories. Each one is different and most of them had me engrossed. I did lose track on a couple, but audiobooks always do that to me. 
The narrator was great, and I like the use of some sound effects. It brought some of the stories to life.
I really enjoyed The Great Train Robbery, An Ant Called 4179003, and Wizard War. To be fair, this set has me wanted to read more from the author.

Darling Girl - Liz Michalski (#Win Too!)

 

I love the classic Peter Pan story.
This is not it. This story is dark and twisted, and I loved that!
For the most part, I enjoyed this retelling. It had Peter Pan as a sinister character, instead of the sweet and charming boy. Plus, there was this addition with the Darling family and their deepest secrets.
During the middle of the book the story was more focused on one thing and I almost got bored. Then it careened back to Peter and I was invested again.
I do wish that the ending was as thorough as three quarters of the book. It felt rushed through. 
Still, it was a decent read and I would read more from this author in the future.

My Evil Mother - Margaret Atwood
I'm wasn't going into this read with any expectations. Just the title intrigued me, so I grabbed it.
I'm glad I did too! It was a neat little story about a girl who's mom is a witch. As much as I would like to deny it, I connected to this story in so many ways. My mother is not a witch, but carries some of the same attributes. I empathized on so many levels.
It could've been longer and had more to it at the same time though.
