This is the first book in the Blood of Stars series by Elizabeth Lim. I liked that the heroine (pretending to be her brother) was a seamstress and made beautiful garments with her grandmother‘s magic scissors. There‘s also an enchanter who discovers her secret. I am anxious to read Book #2! #52 #BookSpin #25 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #BOOKED2022 set in China #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE Mulan #SERIES2022 #Pantone2022Colour BlueberrySpicyMustard #TheRoyalReadathon

Meagan Spooner as well as the narrator on this audiobook version outdid themselves! This was exciting, full of adventure and my kind of romance. “Long live Robin Hood!” #48 #BFC22 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE RobinHood #20in4 #Pantone2022Colour QuietShade/Amazon #Hikeathonreads #TheRoyalReadathon

Another great installment in the Immortals After Dark series. There is witty banter and snark as always and it is so much fun. The only reason I take away a half star is the miscommunication trope, which annoys me, but I dealt with it because I really enjoyed the characters. This is #17 in the series and it really is best read in order. 4.5⭐️

I really enjoy these stories about the people of Hagenheim by Melanie Dickerson! They are so exciting, clean and romantic and I love how the characters from other books pop up here and there. This one is a Cinderella retelling. I want to read them all! #41 #BookSpinBingo #14 #BFC22 #BOOKED2022 Royal #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #AwesomeApril #Pantone2022Colours Northern Droplet

Finished this one yesterday - a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Her family was nasty and wanted to make her marry Tom the Bailiff so they didn‘t have to do any work. She indentured herself to the “beast” character and discovered many ways the Lord was looking out for her. I loved it. Plan to read more. #13 #BookSpin #24 #BFC22 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #SERIES2022 #sharreadathon #KicktheSlump #Pantone2022 Poppyseed #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon

LatrelWhite @Allylu I need to see what else she‘s written I‘ve read several of her books. I too enjoy them☺️ 3mo
Allylu @LatrelWhite There are 11 books in her Haggenheim series. I know I didn't need to start another series, but oh well. They are all retellings of fairytales. I'm reading some of them for the #FairytaleChallenge. 3mo

Just finished Bookish and the Beast! It was cute. Loved Rosie. She‘s so spunky and real. Setting this fairytale in a contemporary place & time is refreshing. #10 (9 were audiobooks - I have to read more print books!) #BookSpin #4 #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #SERIES2022 (finished this one) #Buzzwordathon July #READYOURSHELFCHALLENGE June #Pantone2022ColourChallenge CoralRose #WintersRespite #TheRoyalReadathon Thomas O‘Malley

The Fairest Beauty | Melanie Dickerson

I have 2 books I have chosen for the Snow White retelling: The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson and The Sleeper and The Spindle by Neil Gaiman. Just finished listening to the tagged book. It was retold from an interesting perspective. It was very faith-infused which I appreciated but I know not all would, which is why I mention it. #3 #BookSpinBingo #23 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #Pantone2022ColourChallenge Poinciana #Wintercosy

This is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. The Princess changed from being ruthless to compassionate and when challenged showed intelligence and skill. There was a wolf, a grandmother, and a woodcutter, but the similarities end there. #124 #BookSpinBingo #17 #BFC21 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #FallIntoReading #Scarathon2021 #Screamathon #Frightfall #Spookoween #LittenListen #Scaredy-CatReadathon #TeaLeavesReadathon #Spooktober #Wickedathon
