April,May, June Summary

Hello there!

Here is my wrap-up for the last three months. I have been grouping my Wrap-Ups and TBRs into three-month chunks this year. Well, this is going to be the last time because starting in July I will go back to posting these monthly! YAY! Now that, that is said let’s talk about books.

1. As Old as Time by Liz Braswell IMG_0891

This is the third book in the A Twisted Tale series and this focuses on Beauty and the Beast where the twist is “What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast?”. I was so excited to read this book because BATB (1991) is my favorite movie and I was curious to see how I would like this retelling. I did enjoy myself reading myself but I did not love it as much as I thought I would. If you want to read more about my thoughts check out my review!

2. What the Valley Knows by Heather ChristieUnknown

I received this book from Black Rose Writing. This is the story of Molly and her life moving to a new town. From the start, we know that Molly and her boyfriend get into a car accident and Molly forgets something important that she was about to tell her mother and boyfriend. This was also a good read but there were things that I didn’t enjoy about it. If you want to know more check out my spoiler-free review where I go into more detail of the synopsis and my thoughts.

3. Wires and Nerve Vol 2: Gone Rouge by Marissa MeyerIMG_1639

What can I say about this? This is the second volume of Wires and Nerve which follows the characters of The Lunar Chronicles. It is always so fun to be with these characters and I loved this second volume.

4. An Ember in the Ashes (Ember #1)  by Sabaa Tahir Unknown-1

I picked this book up because the third book in the series was about to be released and I have heard so much about this series so I decided to give this a try. I did like it but not as much as everyone else seems to like it. If you would like me to do a full review of this book let me know!

5. Reflection ( A Twisted Tale #4) by Elizabeth Lim IMG_1638

A twist on the story of Mulan. In this story, the twist is “What if Mulan had to travel to the underworld?”. I think this is my favorite book in this series so far. I really had a fun time diving into this story. I also have a review of this book!

6. Allied ( Ruined #3) by Amy Tintera2C4F98A4-B2FD-4B97-BA84-107A171F3FC9

This is the final book in the Ruined trilogy and I think this was a really good finally to the story. I think I did want a bit more. I have full on reviews of all of the books in this series so check them out!

Ruined        Avenged       Allied

Oh My Fairytales: As Old as Time by Liz Braswell

Hello there!

This post is going to be on my thoughts of As Old as Time: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell. The A Twisted Tale series takes the Disney movies that we love and adds a twist to it to make it different. In this book it Liz Braswell retells the story of Beauty and the Beast and asks the question ” What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast?”.  I have been wanting to read this book ever since it came out in 2016! Finally, I got my hands on a copy and I will tell you what I thought about this new tale as old as time.

I will start off by saying that Beauty and the Beast (1991) is my favorite movie. Not my favorite Disney movie, not my favorite animated film but my favorite movie period. I have read a few Beauty and the Beast retellings and I have not found one that I have absolutely loved. I think I have such high standards that I haven’t found a Beauty and the Beast retelling that just blew me away. That being said As Old as time came pretty close to it but it ended up not being what I hoped it would be.  Continue reading “Oh My Fairytales: As Old as Time by Liz Braswell”
