The most disappointing couple, sadly, is Pascal and Cendrillon.

This was totally refreshing because Cinderella never grows up with a brother or any other siblings really. First story was my favorite; beforf was my least favorite. Other than that though I’m totally happy and not regretful of giving this retelling a chance. I love how you give your stories sadness and hardships and the characters don’t just overcome them, they triumph over them! Simon Pulse March Length: Smart and Sweet Heroine: The stepmother, Chantal, and her daughters, Amelie and Anastasia, are the big change in the story.

I read these stories out of order. But when the book really fell apart was the ball where she meets the prince and the ensuing aftermath. Etienne de Brabant is brokenhearted.

Along the Brandywine: Book Review // Before Midnight by Cameron Dokey

It’s all tied up in a pretty bow, and we’re told that it all works out. Mulan was a very good character. It’s my personal preference, but I still like the original tale better than this retelling.


There is always something different about each vameron that I’ve read. May 21, Alixendra rated it really liked it Shelves: If I could have gotten a story entirely about him dokfy his story, I would be thrilled. There is absolutely no conceivable reason why I enjoyed this book as much as I did. I’m sorry Cameron, but I have only gotten to read one entire book by you, the other midjight all had at least one cuss word in them I won’t be reading you any more.

One year, a stranger arrives at the door, Niccolo, who has washed up on the beach below the castle.

THAT’S what camerom her to be kept from the public? Maybe I should have read this book earlier; when I was 13 and a fresh book lover. You’ve successfully reported this review. I like that the glass slipper was kept in it. After Golden, I blanked out.

That rather camerln me. They didn’t expect the father to come back, they didn’t expect anyone to come. The girl, La Cendrillon, and the boy, Raoul, pass sixteen years in the servants’ care until one day a very fine lady arrives with her two daughters. Though it was kinda different as the original like the other two, it wasn’t all that bad. It made me go awww because it shows how it wasn’t Rapunzel’s hair that got her cameroh happy ending; it was her heart, and should be that way for all of us.


Yet we get onto firmer ground with the introduction of Cendrillon’s step-family. What a pleasant surprise for any lover of retellings of fairy tales!

The story introduced a subplot that was so out there and dokry that it felt like it was supposed to be part of a different novel rather than this one.

Oct 25, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: She actually holds true to the majority of the traditional stories, but fills in the details with such creativity. Started out like a normal Rapunzel retelling expectant mom sends dad over sorceress’s wall for herb, sorceress finds out and offers up the trade but this Rapunzel has no hair to aid her quest and is actually willingly given up by her own vain mother to a very loving sorceress and the twist:
