This book was amazing!! Not only because I found some new authors to love, but the twist on these fairytales is genius!! I of course had my favorites, but there were all just so good! I’m impressed with the imagination and talent on how the stories were twisted, making me think “that was so much better than the original!” OK I am going to give a teeny tiny, abbreviated thought on each story ;) but I really enjoyed the writing style of all the authors, even if I didn’t like the story.
**Unlocked by Wendy Owens ~ twist on Little Red Riding Hood- Very interesting! What a fun twist on this story. Exciting and full of action and suspense, and a twist I never saw coming!
**Blayze & Ash by Jessica Sorenson ~ twist on Beauty and the Beast- FREAKING LOVED this story! Beauty & the Beast is my fav Disney story, so I was nervous for this one, but it was great! I really loved how it came together, so different yet the same. The ending made me tear up a tiny bit and left me warm and smiling.
**The Little Mermaid by K.R. Wilburn- GREAT twist. Really enjoyed how the tables were turned in this version, and the ending was perfect. Twisty greatness ;)
**Dance with Me by Tish Thawer ~ 12 Prncesses- This was a good story, honestly, the only version of this story I know is the Barbie version my 3 year old loves, and boy was this one different! This brings out a lot of different emotions and I really liked the way it ended.
**Awakened by Kristen Strassel ~ Sleeping Beauty- Dark and twisted! Not at all what you would expect from a Sleeping Beauty story, I enjoyed it very much
**Priceless by Sarah J. Pepper ~ Rumplestiltskin- I freaking LOVED this story!! The minute I finished it I went straight to my computer to stalk this author and get some more of her work, which left me very pleased after seeing her books! I am surprised how much I loved it, because this type of story isn’t really my genre, but yep, epic! And I can’t wait to read more by her!!!
**The Snow Queen by Shannon Morton- This one was very hard for me to read L the writing and imagination of the author is great and she is without a doubt talented, but the story itself left me with a tummy ache. I literally hate the main character! LOL Just a vile and dark creature. I kept waiting for the turning point where she realized she was an evil demon spawn of satan…but it never came. She was just an evil human being and I had a hard time reading about the joy she got from destroying beautiful souls L I really want to go read something else by this author so I can write a review for a story that leaves me happy, because I did enjoy her style very much!
**Caged by LP Dover ~ Rapunzel- Great love story! Full of hope, heartache, betrayal, and a fight for your heart that is inspiring!
**Puss in Boots by Brynn Myers- Another great love story with a twist that just makes you smile….and cringe a little in places, but all in all just a fantastic story that has you really cheering on the characters.
**Rell by Amy Daws ~ Cinderella- I really loved this twist! Made me cry in all the wrong places, yes I said that, because I’m a weirdo and cried at all happy parts, and I didn’t want it to end! Great great story!
**Casting Crowns and Other Curious Things by Elizabeth Montgomery ~ Alice in Wonderland – This was a fun and dark twist that I very much enjoyed. Will be looking for more from this author.
**Hansel & Gretel by Cameo Renae- OK, I’m not gonna lie, I went into this book purely to read this story! I am a sucker for a Cameo Renae story! This epic tale was set in the ARV-3 world and just…so….freaking….AMAZING!!! Hands down my fav in the book, and once again having me long for book 4 or anything from this scary and fantastic post apoc world!
**Real Boy by Kellie Sheridan ~ Pinochio- I really liked this twist, totally creepy for me because I already have a fear of robots taking over the world LOL but I just felt like it just ended way to fast. It got all intense and exciting!! I sat up in and got anxious and then BAM! It just spun and was over L I wanted just a little more drawn out ending. But I guess me wanting more is a good thing. It must be hard when it’s a short story.
**Jaclyn and the Beanstalk by M. Clarke – This was another fantastic twist with a great ending, one that left you satisfied, but also with the giddiness that there could be more of a story to come, fingers crossed!
So all in all I adore this book full of twisted fairy tales by such amazing and talented authors! Even the one story that hurt my heart to read was amazing and well written. A book that is a must read and can’t wait to get it on my shelf!
