Happy Ever After
Mar 01, Ruth Mcauley rated it really liked it. As well as dealing with the situations from the original fairyt “Once upon a time Megan, Alice and Bella shared the Tower Room.
This is the first fairytale retelling that i have read and i thought that it was ‘ok’. Possibly my worst pet peeve after the love triangle because it is just so unrealistic. The writing, at first, is promising. I love all the characters and certainly the fairytale element is wonderfully done. It was kinda flat. I thought it would be your typical lallalala thing but it actually surprised me.
The stories were well re-told and still kept their fairytale theme, whilst maintaining a certain level of modernity, which was very refreshing. An ill-wishing has been placed on Alice, and it seems to be coming true.
Is Bella’s stepmother really as wicked as she believes? Geras was born in Jerusalem, British Mandatory Palestine. It’s supposed to be 3 girls that are 17 years old but the writing makes it seem like they are about 12 because of all the childish remarks throughout each story.

Sleeping Beauty has the most tragic story of the book, and the best one in my opinion. The words and language were perfect, it was smooth and turbulent at the same time. Honestly, I felt like nothing happened in this book. So no rating, because 3 and a bit. This truly is one of my favourite books. Only she doesn’t physically die – she dies a death that’s far, far worse and falls into a state of mental breakdown that only love can overturn. This trilogy is indeed haunti Wow. If you want a decent ‘modern fairytale’ try Beauty by Sheri S.
I lovely read that you won’t be disappointed with! Is Bella’s stepmother really as wicked as she believes? Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. These three are friends and I liked how you could tell some similarities and making it into a modern term made it a bit more realistic in my opinion. I loved the merge of the fantasy fairy tale and the modern world we live in.
Based on the fairytales of Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, this haunting trilogy explores our most turbulent emotions and speaks to our deepest memories. She has also won prizes for her poetry and was a joint winner of the Smith Doorstop Poetry Pamphlet Award, offered by the publisher of that name.
As well as dealing with the situations from the original fairytales it also deals with modern day situations too which makes the characters even more relatable.
It’s awfully difficult to read through a book when you don’t like the main character. It is a good book that manages to do a modern retelling of three fairytales that manage to tie them all together. This book has a sinister edge to it which I think makes it more real.
Snow White is poisoned, the love of her life gets there and somehow saves her, and they live happily ever after, without explaining anything. Jan 08, Emily rated it it was amazing. The characters are so flat. It is based loosely on the stories of Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Snow white but in more of a modern setting.

It just felt kind of pointless. To see evdr your friends thought of this book, please sign up. If you love Fairytales xfter fairytale retellings, you will probably love this book.
Still, pleasant enough, just a bit I have mixed feelings about this book. Gerax didn’t want to visit The Old Forge cafe and sit beneath the beams eating teacakes and sipping tea? No stone was left unturned at the end and I was not left wondering about what happened to whats-his-face-who-went-to-london.
Lorna rated it it was haopy Apr 29, Connie Pretty rated it it was amazing Mar 09, You can feel the bones of the original stories under the new tales, the Three stories in one book, all based on re-written fairy tales.
