A Curse So Dark and Lonely | Brigid Kemmerer

This book! This is my first foray into a fairytale retelling. I picked it up after the host of my fav podcast (currently reading) gushed about it. What a book! I LOVED it. Fantastic characters, a gripping story and lots of adventure. I would highly recommend and I cannot wait to see how the adventure continues.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I had read mixed reviews going into it, but it was an interesting take on the Beauty and the Beast story and I couldn‘t put it down. I‘m looking forward to reading the next book to see where it goes!

Stepsister | Jennifer Donnelly

⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was so excited that my library finally got a copy of Stepsister in so I could read it after waiting for what felt like forever.
It had a nice flow to it and I loved the ending.
My only issue was that some of the paragraph's phrasing was abrupt and, at times, confusing.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the book and enjoyed it.

Loved this graphic novel! I thought the play on Frankenstein‘s Monster was very clever. How do we define the monstrous? How have Black bodies been defined as monstrous and what has the impact of that social delusion been? The book presents those heavy ideas, but it‘s also just a good story!

I loved this "post-happily ever after" story about Cinderella's stepsisters. It's a feminist story of finding your own happy ending instead of the one society thinks you should have. It's so different from other fairy tale inspired books I've read.

This gem is a retelling of Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein, but it starts with what most readers of the original understand—who the real monster is—and takes it up a few giant notches.

My full (slightly spoilery) review is on my blog:

Olivia Twist | Lorie Langdon

I really liked this! It was cheap on kindle, I loved the cover, and a reliable goodreads friend had given it a 5 star, so I thought I‘d try it. A retelling of Oliver Twist, a story which I‘m not that familiar with, this is instead the story of Olivia, who grows up homeless on the streets pretending to be a boy until a stroke of luck means she‘s discovered by an uncle and cared for. Adventures but also romance that‘s not too Romancey. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
