The Wish Granter Review: This Book Will Satisfy Your Wish For A Fun Fantasy!

The Wish Granter Review: This Book Will Satisfy Your Wish For A Fun Fantasy!

While I thoroughly enjoyed the first book to this series of interconnected books, The Shadow Queen, I adored this one even more! You don’t see many retellings of Rumpelstiltskin, and Redwine really adds great dimension and twists to the characters and plot, making for an exciting read despite the familiar story. I’ve been loving this […]

Similar to The Wrath and the Dawn, Maya is taken by the mysterious Amar into his own world, where she’s made a Queen.

I love The Lunar Chronicles and I love food, so I was pretty excited to read Heartless. Going into the book, it’s best to detach yourself from the Lunar Chronicles, because it’s more of a straight retelling of Alice in Wonderland than a story that’s inspired by fairy tales.

The journey featured the search for a map to guide the time travelling locations of the pirate ship, but […]

The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine Review: Let’s Start A Petition To Ban All Apples

This fast-paced retelling of Snow White was full of fun, adventure, and swoons as we follow Lorelai and her path to reclaiming the throne of Ravenspire. From the very beginning, I loved her character. She was courageous and knew how to fight back. She may have been based on Snow White, but she certainly isn’t […]

Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell Review: Where Neverland is NOT the place you want to be

I absolutely loved the concept for this book! It’s intriguing, and certainly brings a dark twist to the tale Peter Pan that we all know and love. (Or do we? I’ve never read it myself.) The story starts with Gwen moving yet again because her mother is afraid of some monster that’s chasing them. Fortunately for […]
