Welcome to another post in my Oh My Fairytales series! This post is on the book Ounce Upon a Dream: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell. This is the second book in the A Twisted Tale series where Braswell takes a Disney movie and twists the stories by changing one important factor. In Once Upon a Dream Braswell twists the story of Sleeping Beauty, the twist is “what if the sleeping beauty never woke up?”. The first book in the series is A Whole New World which I have a review of so you can check that out! Now let’s get into the review.

On this post, I will be going into detail on my thoughts of King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. This review will have spoilers so if you are looking for a spoiler-free review you can check mine out! (KC Review Spoiler Free). Now let’s get into this review.
Okay, let me start off by saying that I enjoyed the pacing for most of the book. Since Mare was taken by Maven as a prisoner I thought that her escape/ rescue was going to happen too quick. I thought that it might have been a chapter or two of Mare being held prisoner by Maven but it actually took a good portion of the book. Which I felt made it feel more realistic, also it took several tries for Mare to get away. I feel that sometimes in books or movies the rescue or escape happens the first try. So I really liked that, that wasn’t rushed. Continue reading “Book Monologue 6 : King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard”
This is going to be my spoiler free review of King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. This review will be spoiler free for King’s Cage but it might have spoilers from Red Queen and Glass Sword so keep that in mind.
Red Queen: Spoiler free with Spoilers
Glass Sword: Spoiler free with Spoilers
About: King’s Cage started right where Glass Sword left off. Mare kneeling in front of Maven. For a good portion of the book, it is focusing on Mare and her trying to find a way to escape Maven. Continue reading “Review: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard”
Finally! I have finished reading Hunted by Meagan Spooner. I started this book around mid-February. I can not believe that it took me so long to read this book, it took me over a month. This post is going to be my spoiler free review of Hunted. I got an ARC at New York Comic Con 2016. That said this review will be based on the ARC. I do not know what changes were made for the finished copy. Hunted is out now so you can pick up a finished copy today. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner”
In this post, I will be discussing all the books I read in February and everything I plan to read in March. I think I had a decent reading month in February. So I am excited to share with you all, all my thoughts. Now on to the books!
1) Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
I started Cruel Beauty in January and was able to finish it in February. This book was okay. There were a lot of times while reading, that I really did not know what was happening. If certain things were explained more I feel that this book would have been a four or five-star book. Continue reading “February Summary and Coming up in March”
First off, I know this review is super late. This should have been posted the end of January but stuff happened and today is the day that I was finally able to get this up. Today’s post is on my thoughts on Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. Let me start off by saying that I was really excited to read this book and I had been wanting to read this for a year or two. I am so glad that I was finally able to give Cruel Beauty a read.
Cruel Beauty is a Beauty and the Beast retelling, that is the main reason I wanted to read this book. Nyx our main character has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom since birth. This is all due to the fact that her father struck a deal with the Gentle Lord. The price of that deal was one of his daughters. This story is about Nyx and what happens when she comes face to face with the husband she is supposed to kill. Continue reading “Review: Cruel Beauty by: Rosamund Hodge”
On January 30th, 2017 the latest trailer for the Beaty and the Beast live-action movie dropped. Wow, this newest trailer has gotten me even more excited for the movie to be released on March 17th. I talk in detail about the trailer so if you want to watch it first then come back and read the review here is the link –> BATB Trailer
I really like how just from the trailer you can see that they are keeping a lot of the scenes that are in the animated film. For example: when Belle is fighting the wolfs with the stick, when Chip blows bubbles in the tea, and when Beast and Belle sip from the bowls. As well as keeping a lot of the scenes from the animated film they have added a lot of new as well. I really liked how they explain to Belle about the curse. In the animated film all she knows is that the castle is enchanted, Belle does not know all the details about the curse.They also explain how Belle got the Continue reading “Beauty and the Beast Trailer Review”
This post is going to be on my thoughts on Heartless by Marissa Meyer. I had been looking forward to this book ever since I finished Winter by Meyer which I read January 2016. I absolutely fell in love with the Lunar Chronicles so I was looking forward to finally reading Heartless. Heartless is Meyer’s first book outside of the Lunar Chronicles world as well as her first stand-alone book. What this book is about is the story of a girl named Catherine who we all know today as the Queen of Hearts. All Catherine wanted to do was open a bakery with her best friend but that is not what the world had planned for her. Continue reading “Review : Heartless by Marissa Meyer”
So as some of you may know my favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast. To celebrate the upcoming release of the Beauty and the Beast live action movie I have come up with an idea. Every month leading up to the release on March 17, 2017, I will be reading and reviewing a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Here is what I have planned so far: Continue reading “Countdown To Beauty and the Beast”
This post is on my thoughts on The Sun is Also A Star by: Nicola Yoon. This post will also be different from my other reviews. The first part of this post will be spoiler free then I will go into some of my spoiler thoughts. Do not worry I will let you know when that happens so that you are not spoiled if you have not read The Sun is Also a Star yet. Now on to the review.
The Sun is Also a Star is about a girl named Natasha who thinks about everything in a very scientific way also Natasha and her family are being deported back to Jamaica that night. Then there is Daniel who is a dreamer that is trying to please his family, these two could not be any more different. These differences are the very thing that draws them together. Set in twelve hours Natasha and Daniel meet and Daniel is trying to make Natasha fall in love with him. This may be the main plot of this story but there is so much more to it. This book is told from multiple points of view, but it is done in a way that it is not confusing or annoying. Each perspective adds to the story in just the right way.
