Go the Distance
Go the Distance: A Twisted Tale | Jen Calonita
26 posts | 16 read | 20 to read
What if Meg had to become a god? After Hercules proves he's a true hero and regains his godship, all seems right in the world. That is, until Zeus tells Meg that she can't be with Hercules because she's, well, mortal. Luckily, Hera has a solution, offering Meg a chance to prove herself worthy of a spot on Mt. Olympus--as a god. All Meg has to do is complete a mysterious quest. The mission? Oh, just to rescue her ex's current wife from the Underworld. The ex-boyfriend she saved by selling her soul to Hades. The ex-boyfriend who immediately moved on to someone else while she was stuck in the Underworld. Can Meg put her past behind her and use her quick-wit to defeat monsters and gods alike, including the nefarious Hades? Will she finally figure out her place and contribution to the world? Or will her fear of commitment have her running away from an eternity of godhood with Herc? Written by the author of Mirror, Mirror and Conceal, Don't Feel, Jen Calonita's latest twist is sure to delight and surprise.

Book 170🎧 4⭐️

Hercules is my favourite classic Disney - the musical numbers are unmatched👏🏻👏🏻 (ready for a TRUE live action remake, and don‘t cut the songs!!)

What if Meg had to fight to become a God? 🫣

Also - I always thought it was “Meg-Ar-a” not “Meg-A-Ra”😂 I think the first has a better ring to it LOL

DinoMom Hercules is also my favourite! 2mo

My September pick is a young person‘s book. But the characters and the story were really touching and close to my heart. What if a young woman with a sad past and a broken spirit was offered the opportunity to be a god? Can love save her life — and anyone else‘s?

I was surprised how much fun this was. They should have made this into a movie for Disney+. This a strong 3 out of 5. I would recommend. Had some great parts about myths and we got see our friends Peg & Phil, plus Hades. Looking for twisted tale and story and learning about growing from trauma and trusting in others, this is it. #zerotohero #Disney #twistedtale #ereader

Nothing says Friday night light a little reading and some sushi and some light reading. Decided to take myself to dinner and have nothing but my book and some dinner. Okay maybe a little sake too. Lol 😂 sometimes you have to take yourself out on a date. Self care is important. #selfcare #zerotohero #twisttale #disney #sushi

This was both very good and a bit of a disappointment. I feel the book takes an easy way out of an important part of the premise as soon as Meg reunites with her ex. I wanted more in terms of conflict and morally grey characters. I did enjoy the story… but I think it should have been handled differently to get the best result.

Bailing- at least for now. I just can‘t get into it, perhaps because I‘m not very familiar with the Disney story? I even tried rewatching it first but just found myself not caring.

This was a great read. It was interesting to see the story from a different perspective. I really enjoyed this story. I would read it again and again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just found out what the twist for Almost There is, comes out on Sept. 6, 2022

What if Tiana made a deal with the Shadow Man?

Sometimes, life in the Big Easy is tough. No one knows that better than Tiana, though she also believes that hard work can go a long way. But when the notorious Dr. Facilier backs her into a corner, she has no other choice but to accept an offer that will alter the course of her life in an instant.

Hercules has long been a favorite Disney movie in our house. So I was SO EXCITED to have this twisted tale come out. And it did not disappoint. It was dramatically different than the other twisted tales I have read but I really enjoyed what it did with the story. It was so fun. #disney #hercules #twistedtales

Another in the twisted Tales Series. No idea what number this is. But for those not in the know, this one is about Hercules and Hadies.
