The book jar has picked my next read. I don't know if it's magic or luck that I keep getting fairy tale retellings. Or maybe it's just the fact I have so many of them 😅 my next read until my dear friend @curiouserandcurioser pick our buddy read that I'm looking forward to. Happy reading and weekend everyone. #fairytale #retelling #snowwhite #truequeen #onethrone #magic #goodandevil #huntsman

thereadingpal Oh it seems interesting! Love the cover ☺️ I'd also love to do buddy reads if I find someone xD 4mo
hannah-leeloo That reminds me how did you get on with Uprooted @TheBookWitchON ??? You'll have to see what book loves you have in common @thereadingpal we're always doing buddy reads on @LitsyEvents 4mo

A YA Snow White retelling. It was different, morbid in someway but interesting. I enjoyed in general but I don‘t know why some authors insist to unnecessarily prolongue a story. Do they have to meet a certain amount of pages to publish a book? I don‘t matter if the books is long when the purpose is to know more the world or the characters but this was not the case. But I enjoy this author‘s retellings. 3.4⭐️

4.8⭐️ it‘s like Snow White meets Game of Thrones… The YA version. It was funny, and sweet, and tragic and powerful and it had dragons. I loved it and while this story is over I‘ll probably continue with the series. #fairytalereading

Charityann Love this series!😊 8mo

What the heck… how come I have never read this book before. I haven‘t even made it to the first chapter and I‘m hooked… How does that even happen? I‘m just saying, after that prologue this book has a lot to live up to. #fairytalereading

StayCurious I‘m in the middle of this one and am enjoying it so far but I was somewhat surprised at how dark it is. I guess it‘s in true fairytale fashion 9mo
elkeOriginal I was pleasantly surprised by this also. Dark but so good. Excellent retelling. 9mo

I‘m excited to participate in the #fairytalereading challenge hosted by @Charityann - January is going to be Snow White! I‘m reading the tagged book and I‘m also going to start the Fables comic series which has a great Snow White character. Will also be watching some adaptations as well. Should be fun!

Charityann Yay! I really liked The Shadow Queen. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.😊 9mo
elkeOriginal I enjoyed Shadow Queen too. 9mo
Bookworm54 I‘m going to read that risen snow, which is apparently more of a sequel sort of thing, starting at the true loves kiss. Pretty sure it‘s zombies. But has been on my kindle forever and sounds like it could be fun 😂 9mo

I love retellings of fairytales. This one reminded me of a few but with an added twists. This princess was no damsel in distress. Lorilei was independent & intriguing. She is a force to go against and I can‘t wait to see what happens. Plus I get read more about Kol...the dragon you can‘t help but adore!!!!

I was amazed and sucked in with ever swipe of my ebook. ( doesn‘t have the same feel as turning the page of an actual book, does it?)

Went on a reading spree this weekend and finished three of the Ravenspire novels: Shadow Queen, Wish Granter, and Traitor Prince. Traitor Prince was my favorite, but they were all fun reads!

Strong females, sweet romance, and a new twist on well loved stories. You can‘t go wrong with these if you enjoy fairytale retellings.

I am surprised by the low % on this title because I found it to be a delightful YA retelling of Snow White with an awesome map, an amazingly vivid apple scenario, a fantastic twist on dragon magic, and the requisite plucky heroine and romance were endearing (and not annoying). A retelling that felt fresh. What else do you want? A definite enjoyable read if you like good winning over evil.
You may not look at 🍏🍎 quite the same way again though 😁

Okay C.J. Redwine- I see you! If you are into YA fantasy, Redwine's retellings are great and I cannot wait to read the next one! This novel is a Snow White and the Huntsmen retelling and our "Snow White" is a fierce warrior who will do anything to save her Kingdom.

Lovesbooks87 Ooo... I will have to check these out. I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings! 3y
WriterAtHeart @Lovesbooks87 All the books are stand alone, but take place in or around the Kingdom of Ravenspire. I am seriously hooked. 3y

I read this book after it was recommended on the #heyya @bookriot podcast. I had totally misjudged it by its cover (it looks super middle grade to me.) I really liked it. I enjoy retold fairy tales and this one has some great twists. I especially enjoyed that even the “evil” character had some depth. I switched between reading and audio depending on my mood. Hvam is a great performer, but she got a little overly dramatic on this one.

I had a hard time reviewing this one. It wasn‘t terrible but it wasn‘t great either. I really wanted to love it, but I found it to be just ok. I love a good fairytale retelling and Snow White being one of my favorites, I had high hopes. The writing overall was good, the descriptiveness brought the scenes alive, there were good fantasy elements but the pace was to slow for me. The ending was predictable but satisfying.

I finished this on my lunch break. I really enjoyed it. From the great the cover art 🍎 to the fantastic magic system, this book kept me interested the whole way through. I wish it had been a little less #YA teen angsty, but overall a satisfying retelling of Snow White. Plus...DRAGONS!!!🐉 🐉 🐉
