Alias Hook
Alias Hook | Lisa Jensen
"Every child knows how the story ends. The wicked pirate captain is flung overboard, caught in the jaws of the monster crocodile who drags him down to a watery grave. But it was not yet my time to die. It's my fate to be trapped here forever, in a nightmare of childhood fancy, with that infernal, eternal boy."Meet Captain James Benjamin Hook, a witty, educated Restoration-era privateer cursed to play villain to a pack of malicious little boys in a pointless war that never ends. But everything changes when Stella Parrish, a forbidden grown woman, dreams her way to the Neverland in defiance of Pan's rules. From the glamour of the Fairy Revels, to the secret ceremonies of the First Tribes, to the mysterious underwater temple beneath the Mermaid Lagoon, the magical forces of the Neverland open up for Stella as they never have for Hook. And in the pirate captain himself, she begins to see someone far more complex than the storybook villain. With Stella's knowledge of folk and fairy tales, she might be Hook's last chance for redemption and release if they can break his curse before Pan and his warrior boys hunt her down and drag Hook back to their neverending game. Alias Hook by Lisa Jensen is a beautifully and romantically written adult fairy tale.

I love Peter Pan and I love retellings. I have only read two retellings, Alias Hook, and Everland.
I thought it would be fun to read more Peter Pan retellings, and then rank them on my blog.
So if you have any recommendations for me, that would be great. :)

Here is what I‘m working on today. I don‘t think I could ever see hook any other way than in Once Upon a Time which was on for #7years
#LaborDayReads #ReadingResolutions

Kalalalatja Nice interpretation 👍 14mo
Tanzy13 before I started watching once upon a time, I thought of peter pans version of captain hook but now I think of OUAT and I much perfer OUAT version lol 😏😉 14mo
MommyOfTwo @Tanzy13 I always used to think of him from the movie Hook when Dustin Hoffman played him but that was pretty much the same as the Disney version. 14mo
Cinfhen My kids loved that show ❣️❣️❣️nice choice 14mo

Purely #blameitonlitsy ...I never go to Dollar Tree. Never. But, I couldn‘t pass up an opportunity to visit and see their book selection. The store was closing, so I had to grab quick. I‘m amazed and will now probably stalk all of the nearby Dollar Trees to see how many books I can grab at 1.00 a piece. #bookhaul

DivineDiana Good haul! I still need to scope out some close by! 2y
Librarybelle Thanks, @DivineDiana ! I was impressed with the selection. 2y
Avanders ... dollar tree has books?! 2y

Librarybelle @Avanders I had no clue either until I saw a few posts on Litsy about it. I had to check it out, and at least at the one I visited, it had a nice sized area dedicated to books. 2y
LeahBergen I heartily enjoyed Vanessa and her Sister. 👍🏻 2y
AmyG I am going tomorrow. If not for Litsy...I would never know they have decent books. 2y
Librarybelle @LeahBergen Great! Definitely a good buy! ❤️ 2y
Librarybelle @AmyG Hahaha! I know...my places to get books certainly has expanded thanks to Litsy. 2y
Avanders @Librarybelle well now I have to go stat!! ... because, you know, 1000+ unread books in the house is clearly not enough....... 😳😬 2y
Librarybelle @Avanders Yup...I feel the same way! 2y
Eggs That's amazing!! Guess where I'm going tomorrow 2y
Puredragonstar Dollar tree had Alias Hook? 2y
Librarybelle @Eggs Have fun! I need to go back when I have more time to explore. I wonder how often they get in different books... 2y
Librarybelle @Puredragonstar Yes! I was quite amazed at the selection. It was definitely worth the trip for me. 2y
rustoryhuf Every now and then Dollar Tree takes my book money. 🤓 2y
Librarybelle @rustoryhuf I can see why! 2y
Puredragonstar Went to several dollar trees in search of Alias Hook with no luck. 😢 But I did find five other books to add to my ginormous TBR 🤩 lol 2y
Librarybelle That‘s sad, @Puredragonstar , but I‘m glad you did find five others! I can‘t remember if there were any other copies of Alias Hook at the one I visited or not. 2y
Librarybelle @Puredragonstar My hope is to visit a couple Dollar Trees this weekend, including the one where I found Alias Hook. If I find a copy, would you like me to get it for you? I‘d be more than happy to grab one for you! 2y
Puredragonstar Thank you so much! That would be amazing! 🤩🤩🤩 2y
Librarybelle @Puredragonstar If I find a copy, I‘ll post on Litsy! 😁 2y

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness. @BookwormAHN you spoil me so. More Lisa Frank coloring (you can never have too much) plus more coloring and a Peter Pan retellings. I have heard lots of good things about this book. Gonna be honest, I won't read it for a while but that is because I am finishing up another Hook retelling. Plus handmade BMs. I love everything and thank you for the time and thought put into it. 😁🎅🏼🎄😁🎅🏼🎄#secretsantagoespostal

Awwwwww! Adult Hook has a bae of his own...and I'm still single!

I really enjoyed this book but I definitely was not expecting the adult scenes 🤣🤣🤣 that caught me off guard but shows like OUAT prepped me to be ready for fairytale sex life. Their dialogue and relationship was so cute but also much more adult than YA normally has.

The old racist terminology was pretttttttttty cringey though... *Shivers grossed out*

Genevieve what is bae? 2y
SassenachTheBookWizard @Genevieve it's just a term of endearment for couples (like baby) 2y
Genevieve nice! thanks 2y
Leniverse @Genevieve Bae is a new term, used by young people. I get the impression that most people over 30 hate it. ? I'm over 30 but think it's pretty cool, both because I like to watch linguistic development and because it's a gender neutral term. No more boyfriend/girlfriend, just "I'm bringing my bae", no gender implied. Scandinavian languages have had this for ever, glad to see the English language catch up. ? (edited) 2y

I loved this adult fairy tale, focusing on Captain Hook and the endless monotony of his daily existence. Both the characterization and setting are so rich. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Caveat: There was the use of a certain word to refer to Neverland's indigenous population that I basically hated. Peter Pan fans will know the word I'm talking about.
