Cinder by Marissa Meyer

9 January 2018 Casey 0

Over the years, I’ve read countless fairy tales and their retellings. Some retellings would be almost identical to the fairy tale itself, while others were vastly different. I can honestly say that Cinder by Marissa Meyer is the most unique retelling of Cinderella that I’ve ever read. The biggest difference is […]

The Garden of Statues by Justin Richards

2 May 2016 Jackie 2

I love the book order forms the kids bring home from school. I always find either a great deal or a book I have’t heard of yet. With the last one, I discovered Doctor Who Time Lord Fairy Tales by Justin Richards, with illustrations by David Wardle, and you better believe […]

Charming by Krystal Wade

31 October 2014 Courtney 1

I don’t normally read, or enjoy, young adult novels but I’ll make an exception for any kind of fairy tale retelling. I’m glad I gave Charming by Krystal Wade a chance. Charming starts off fast and never slows down. The characters are engaging and the story is appealing. And no, Charming is not your […]

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

12 February 2013 Casey 1

Saying I loved Fathomless by Jackson Pearce doesn’t even begin to describe what I feel for this book. It grabbed me, sucked me in and never let me go. Fathomless was like nothing I expected but turned out to be everything I love. I don’t know if I can do […]

SWalker-Blind Destiny

Blind Destiny by Shiloh Walker

3 October 2012 Jackie 1

The seventh novel in Shiloh Walker’s Grimm Circle series, Blind Destiny, brings back two characters we’ve seen before and tells us a little more about them. However, for the first time, there’s a little something missing. Myrsina knows the stories. As one of the oldest of the Grimm, she had […]

Grimm Tidings by Shiloh Walker

6 September 2012 Jackie 1

I can always count on Shiloh Walker to keep me completely enraptured in whatever story she is telling. This is no less true with the seventh (or sixth depending on how you count them) Grimm Circle novel, Grimm Tidings. In his mortal life, the only thing Jacob liked better than […]

Thoroughly Kissed by Kristine Grayson

8 August 2012 Casey 1

There is nothing more annoying that being indifferent to a book. Loving it is great because they you can run around fangirl screaming about it; hating it gives you something to complain about; but with indifference, there’s nothing to say. I really, truly absolutely wanted to love Thoroughly Kissed by Kristine […]

Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston

4 August 2012 Nikki R 2

I admit, when I first saw Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston, and read the synopsis, I wasn’t too excited to read it.  I put it in my pile, and pretty much forgot about it (totally forgetting I needed to read it before it was published) until a few days ago. […]

Darkness Everlasting by Alexandra Ivy

3 August 2012 Nikki R 0

Ever have a book (or series) that has all the components that you love but you just can’t get into it?  That’s the case with Darkness Everlasting in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series.  In particular, Darcy is being hunted by were-society and the head of the vampires, Styx, must find […]

Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh

21 February 2012 Casey 5

The Royal House of Shadows series saved the best for last – Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh was absolutely amazing. As the dark Lord who condemns souls to damnation in the Abyss, Micah is nothing but a feared monster wrapped in impenetrable black armor. He has no idea he […]
