I missed posting for #screamathonphotochallenge yesterday so here‘s another twofer. My favorite #costume was the Maleficent one, complete with horns, that @dsfisher made for me in my teens. In the animated film, the scariest part IMO, is when the fireplace #glows. I find myself yelling “No, Aurora! Don‘t follow the light!” 😆😆🤦🏻‍♀️

Rats. Starting May on a DNF. I got 60-some pages in and just don‘t care at all. I flipped ahead to see if it picks up, and still don‘t care. Moving on.

MommyOfTwo This one was a bit slower than the other book I‘ve read by her but I still liked it. 7mo

Today‘s #labsoundtrack is getting me through a bad case of the Monday‘s. This is my third twisted tale - Sleeping Beauty was probably one of my least favorite Disney princesses so I hope this story improves my view of her.

I have been reading this entire series and this one was the hardest one to read. It was good and had a good ending but the middle was a little difficult for me

1. I prefer to qualify these, like the classic shorts are different from the classic feature lengths which are different from the Disney Renaissance which is different from Pixar... BUT if forced to choose one I go with Pinocchio.
2. Jiminy Cricket 🎩
3. Flounder, completely useless 🐠
4. Gus Gus 🐭
5. Elsa was originally a villain. I think most people know that though. Pretty busy day at work so can‘t come up with anything better.

My physical #CupidGoesPostal books from @BethM are spot on! Twisted fairy tale, intriguing sociological nonfiction, and —drumroll! — sloth coloring book! Plus: a set of 4 decoupaged Harry Potter tiles (May be coasters, but I don‘t think I‘d put anything on top!) 😍😍😍

BethM They are coasters and are sealed with water tight sealant so you can use them :) there should have been a second book sent to your kindle as well. I‘m glad you liked everything! 10mo
Avanders Oooh 😍😍 those coasters are 🔥🔥! 10mo
Lovesbooks87 Loved Once Upon A Time! I love the whole twisted tale series! 10mo

An adorable twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty full of fun, humour and charisma. A totally fun spin on what would happen if Maleficent wins. I really enjoyed this whole book and can't wait to read the others in this series. I wanted a bit more time with Maleficent herself rather than focusing as much on the protagonists. I loved the depths and realness that the author broke to Auroras character. Definitely great!

I was never a big fan of Sleeping Beauty. This reimagining/retelling is good though. I like the way Braswell changes the story and makes it so it‘s not the Prince‘s kiss that saves Aurora/Briar Rose. I like how she addresses some of the issues with the original Disney telling. This series of Twisted Tales are well worth the reads so far.

First book in the #24b42019 readathon complete. I absolutely love this Twisted Tales Series. What would happen if Sleeping Beauty never woke up? This book was action packed. This was the last Twisted Tales book that I had to read. Can't wait until the Snow White book comes out in April!

The socks are super cool, and the hand sanitizer is very useful. I always like to have one on hand, and love the scent! I have never tried Australian candy, so that is very excited as well! Thank you thank you thank you!

I struggled with picking a villain/book where announcing my choice wouldn‘t be a spoiler until someone else posted Disney Villains and I remembered that I own this book (still TBR😳) So without further ado, dear @TricksyTails please allow me to present my all time favorite villain, the Mistress of All Evil, Maleficent! (And Thanks for the awesome giveaway) #RatBastardsNeedLoveToo

By book 3 we know that b side has won this cover war. To me the a side looks really girly which limits viewership. Beside seems more gender neutral. It would be easier to get kids interested. I own these but haven't read the yet your thoughts? #coverlove #changesedition

Leniverse B screams Disney, whereas A could be anything. And since they actually are Disney, B makes a lot of sense! 2y

I wasn't thrilled by this one. I LOVE LOVE retellings but this one just wasn't for me. I still finished it but there were a lot of times where I thought about stopping. I thought the dedication was really cute.

hlgreenfield I'm sorry the story isn't good because I wanted to read it just based on the dedication! 2y
398.2 @hlgreenfield I FELT THE SAME WAY! lol I still finished it. I love retellings so I think I have read better ones and that's why I couldn't get into it. 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I read this for a book club. It was definitely an interesting take on Sleeping Beauty. There were a lot of twists and turns and I felt like Aurora's character was dealt with very realistically. I really liked the ending. This twisted reselling also had some Alice in Wonderland vibes. Overall, it wasn't amazing, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

After about 5 chapters I've had to bail on this. I love the concept, and maybe it gets better - but life is too short to read books your not enjoying 😔 They do say the original is always the best... 👸🏻

Nikki15 Ah that's a shame this is in my #TBR stack 2y
BellesLibrary @Nikki15 oh no... I think it's just slow to get into and I have no patience! I hope you enjoy it Nikki x 2y

The first thing that intrigued me about this book is the very obvious beautiful cover. Though, when I started it took me until page 100 to actually get into it. From there on it was a wild and interesting rollercoaster that gave me a completely new look on the world of sleeping beauty. The reason There isn't a perfect score is the main character Aurora Rose herself. She is not a very likable character and often complains. Rate out of 5: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#TBRtemptation post! The premise is pretty much on the cover, lol. This is the second re-imagining of Disney classics. The prince falls asleep too when he kisses her lips. Then they must fight in their dreamland together to wake up and deal with Maleficent. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

CrowCAH One of my fav princess storylines! 3y

I want this. I have the Aladdin tale but have not had a chance to read it yet.

Eugeniavb Ohhh my 10 year old is going to loooove this 3y
LibrarianRyan @Eugeniavb it's a series. There are two others. The paperback Aladdin has a similar cover and the first one has a very girly cover. Each book is a stand alone so they can be read in any order. 3y
LibrarianRyan Okay, I'm an idiot. This is the paperback cover. I still like it better than the girly hard cover. 3y
