A Spindle Splintered | Alix E. Harrow

Mehso-so

Zinnia Gray is terminally ill and just turned 21 when she finds herself in the castle of a real Sleeping Beauty. The story is one part The Fault in our Stars and one part Gaiman's The Sleeper and the Spindle. I loved the author's other books, but by its very nature this slip of a novel doesn‘t give the reader enough time to feel too attached.

This started out clever but am about a third into the book, and the characters are beginning to grate on me. So I am going to put this aside.
I'll just watch the movie for the summary. 😅

Let‘s turn the tale of Sleeping Beauty on its head!
With a main character (who can turn into a toad) and her mild magic and a kind knight wondering what the thornhedge is hiding, see why the story isn‘t what you always thought—learn why Toadling the changeling is protecting the world FROM the sleeping girl in the tower…
And yes, @rubyslippersreads - you would like this!
For anyone who likes a fairy tale retelling, this novella is a treat. 🐸

LiteraryinLawrence Oooh, cool premise! 7d

Zinnia is destined to die before she turns 22 due to a rare illness, then she wakes up in a tower room of a fantasy realm just as a princess is about to prick her finger with a spindle.
Zinnia goes on a quest to save herself and other Sleeping Beauties across the multiverse.
Quick read but packed full of action, detail, and depth.
