Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Beauty and Beastly by is a steampunk retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love this twist on the original! It is unlike anything I’ve ever read. The clockwork, steam powered Beast is a heartbreaking, yet charming character that was easy to see why the MC would fall for him. Set during 1814 […]

Audio Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

I’m not gonna lie….I really debated picking this up to read. It’s been recommended to me SO much by so many people that I trust their recommendations and yet I was still hesitant. Why? Because I tried reading it last year on vacation and despised it. I DNFed at around the halfway mark and felt […]

Review: The Orphan’s Wish by Melanie Dickerson

As one of a number of volumes in her Medieval Fairy Tales, The Orphan’s Wish stands out among its peers for many reasons. Don’t let the cover fool you! This is actually a historical retelling of the story of Aladdin, set in Medieval Germany in the fictional town of Hagenheim and its surrounding pretend forests.  […]

Audio Review: Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

Audio Review: Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

Once Upon a Dream by is the second book in Disney’s series. Each book in the series takes a beloved fairy tale and asks one “what if” question. This one is about Sleeping Beauty and asks the question “what if sleeping beauty didn’t wake up?” Personally I love these. They are cleverly written and take a realistic approach […]
