"First kisses sometimes wake slumbering princesses, undo spells, and spark happily ever afters. Mine broke Bale.
Seventeen-year-old Snow has spent her life locked in Whittaker Psychiatric—but she isn‘t crazy. And that‘s not the worst of it. Her very first kiss proves anything but innocent…when Bale, her only love, turns violent."
I still need to read this one. Apparently it's a series??? #Mirror #NewHogwartsAdventure @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
My 100th book since November 2011 (when I started counting). Damn... this girl can write. I almost hate to say, but she writes a story so well she almost forgets the fluff and plot twists and action slam you with every page turn. But those pages turn and turn and soon you find yourself adding Barnes and nobles to your shopping list. Just a fascinating story.
Have you read this book? I haven't, but I bought it yesterday and scored a huge deal on it! I love fairytale retellings so I can't wait to dive into this baby💜🔮
QOTD: Are you a fan of retellings/dark fairytales? If so, what's your current favorite?
AOTD: my current favorite is Heartless by Marissa Meyer but I love any retelling of Alice in Wonderland♥️

I love Danielle Paige and I really loved Stealing Snow. A fairy tale retelling with a kick ass female character who is not afraid to question and to love deeply. Can't wait to discuss this at our bookstore's book club. (Metar also approves on this beautiful Houston day)
My #tbr for the #24hrtbrreadathon I will also include The Red Queen if I'm not done with it yet. I so needed this right now, I've limited myself to 1 new book to every 10 of my books I read till I get my stacks down.

What a disappointment. I texted my sister to stop my niece from reading this book. I'm NOT okay with the main character chasing after a boy that broke her wrists then getting all gaga over two other boys. UGH! What garbage! Why can't more YA books have a girl focus on a cause or quest instead of boy crazy BS. 👎🏽😡.
Probably my first bail in over 5 years (but I have a compulsive need to finish books o start). I made it 100 pages. This was so bad in so many ways. Retelling of the Snow Queen but dreadful. Offensive use of mental illness portrayal. Turns out that Snow (who is institutionalized) isn't actually "crazy" but rather a magical princess from another world/dimension. I can't begin to describe how abhorrent I found this book.
Loved this one! Thought it would be a standalone but happy it's not. I was hoping there'd be an explanation as to why every boy she meets falls in love with her.... I felt that was a bit... over the top for just looks and personality alone. Loved the premise, the guys were swoony and the twist was one I didn't see coming!
I cannot say enough about this book!! The ending was so intense!! There are plot twists and turns aplenty!! I tried to purchase the sequel immediately after finishing it, but sadly it isn't out yet. There are two novellas available on Kindle, however, to tide one over. Please hurry, Ms. Paige, and get that sequel out!!
#12DaysOfXmasPhoto #day3 #SnowMen My copy of Disneys Frozen has disappeared & I don't have any books about snowmen, not even a Frosty the Snowman book anywhere, so this is a retelling of Snow White with a Snowman teapot & a beautiful Snowman snow globe that has coloured lights & a little fan that stirs up the snow for you. And that's better than a book about Frosty in my opinion!☃️
I really want to like Danielle Paige's books but I just can't get into them. I enjoyed the concept of this book, it reminded me of OUAT but there were just too many characters for me to really get invested. I will honestly probably read the sequel just because I want to know what happens but i don't think it would recommend it to anyone.
STEALING SNOW by Danielle Paige is a mashup of several fairytales that results in one hot mess. Mental illness is used as a plot device and the only men not in love with the main character are the ones serving as authority figures. All in all, not my cup of tea.
