Oh, you guys. This book ABSOLUTELY swept my heart away! Set in Russia, #TheBearAndTheNightingale be Katherine Arden is a dark, Russian fairy tale novel told so beautifully, it's stayed with me and I can't recommend it enough if you're looking for a great and different book to read.

“All magic comes with a price, dearie”
I LOVE Rumplestiltskin and not just the OUAT version but the OG fairy tale version (seriously, he’s tattooed on my arm). So when I heard that The Wish Granter was a spin on Old Rumples story I bought it so fast!!! •

Do you ever buy books because of the cover? I mean, of course I'll read what its about to, but if I love a cover that definitly helps sway my opinion, Especailly for purchasing vs library reading.

I also really love retellings, so I'm cant wait to read this one. I like some of the authors in this anthology too.

Do you read anthologies?

Heartless was the book for our June YA bookclub, and, as it turns out, the only Alice & Wonderland themed book that I own. Oops😅 Do my books of fairytales make up for this misstep?

Let's talk about princessisms!
👑 "Have courage and be kind" was a huge theme in Branagh's live action #cinderella a few years ago and... it's great in theory, but easy to overdue in practice. Plainly, Ella took a lot of shit she didn't need to. In fact, I love the Cinderella from Into the Woods because she struggles so hard with this idea that she's supposed to be nice and good. I'm always happiest when I balance kindness, courage, and kick-ass.👑QOTD: If you could offer up a life motto to your younger self, what would you say? What would you tell your inner princess to guide her into becoming the best queen she can be?

🌔"Even in the future, the story begins with once upon a time." 🌖
.
Q: Is there a series you are super late to reading?
.
For me, it's the Lunar Chronicles by @marissameyerauthor! (I know. I know!) I've been meaning to read it forever but there's just been so much Life. Writing. Books. You know.
.
Finally had the chance to read #cinder and now I'm hooked. Just have to get my hands on a copy of Scarlet now!
.
(Also ... today's aesthetic is brought to you by @the_gathered_home! Because what else would you do when staying at your sister's amazing house besides take bookstagram pics?)

📚#bookstagramtogetherjune: Discovered because of bookstagram - the Lunar Chronicles

❤️I should have stopped at first base, but his lips tasted like salty peanuts, and his tongue like caramel-colored corn syrup, and there was so much promise in the big hands that grabbed my waist. He smelled like old books and young man, and my heart ached with loneliness.
❤️Next up in Tales of Love & Woe is Goose. I cannot express how much I love this girl. A mash-up between The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg and The Golden Goose, this story takes place in Louisiana and involves some very naughty behavior that leads to a beautiful surprise. How about you? Ever had a really beautiful surprise come from a bad decision?

Magic Bitter Magic Sweet by @cnholmberg I love Marie’s magic in this, it reminds me of Sophie from Howls Moving Castle with how she implants emotions into things she makes. I also love the fairytale nods(Hansel and Gretel, Alice in Wonderland, Frankenstein) it was subtle but enough to notice and geek out over 😂 there were some flashbacks with Marie that were a little steamy for my tastes though it didn’t bother me as much as usual because (SPOILERISH ALERT) they were married. I’d still consider it clean though. Because of some of that and the abuse Marie suffers while a slave I’d recommend for maybe 15 and up🤔 I really, really want to read Paper Magician now, all of Charlie’s magic systems sound so cool.

#WhatImReadingNow - #ToKillAKingdom by @allie_christo!! 😍😍
☔️
I'm only about 3-4 chapters in but the first thing I loved right off - the short chapters! The books I've read in the last few weeks (adult romantic suspense) have all had pretty long chapters so I'm glad to be reading some YA fantasy with the shorter chapters again. 😊
☔️
It's like I've already given up on this month's challenges. 🙈🙈 But can't really help it. None of the photos I have stored up match any of the prompts and I have no time or energy to do more photo shoots these days.
Plus I'm stumped for inspiration and well, it's too hot to venture out much. 😞🙁 Seriously fed up with summers - I just want monsoons and winters. 🦄
☔️
What's your favorite season of the year? And why?

When you're on your way to a kickboxing class but you promised yourself you would post a pic today... this is the caption you end up with! What are you doing this evening?

[Unpaid #advertisement ]

Hey Dreamers. From now on my captions are going to look very boring at the beginning. Yesterday we found out a bookstagrammer in Germany received a 10K€ fine because apparently blogging about books is considered advertising. There isn't an exact law on this in Italy yet, but my sister read that people are being targeted. For now it's just famous people but in case they turn their eyes on us common folk, I don't want my hobby to turn into a nightmare.

Anyways, TODAY IS THE DAY! Between the Sea and Stars by @chantalgadouryauthor comes out today! Most of you know how obsessed I was with this read and I am so happy that now you can finally read it too! It has one of my newest book boyfriends inside 😉

Here's the blurb:
A Legend, 
A Magical Shell 
A Girl Who Dreamed Of Something More... Lena, a Merrow girl, lives in the Skagerrak sea with her father, Carrick and her brother, Javelin who tells her of the legend of the Merrow Queen murdered by her human lover when greed takes over. But what’s worth spilling the queen’s blood? Gifted from Poseidon, himself, a magic shell gives any human the ability to control both land and sea.
When Javelin is called to join a clan of Merrow soldiers bent on protecting their waters from human invasion, Lena resists Merrow law and ventures to the shore with no choice but to swim to land.
With newfound legs, Lena is whisked away on a new adventure with new friends and new trouble. Everyone seems to want something from her as intrigue lurks around every corner.
Trying her best to hide who she is and remain safe from the dangers of the human world, will Lena finally find where she belongs, or will she be swept into a strong and stormy current by lust, greed, and jealousy?

On a side note, I met an Erasmus guy at uni. He's Chinese and looked very fun and kind and it was nice talking to him. But like an idiot I forgot to ask him his name *eternal face palm* He'll be leaving in July so I guess it was just not meant to be. •
Who loves mermaids? Say AYE! •

I treasure old books, and collect them whenever I can. I love old, worn hardcovers and pencil signatures from previous owners. Every book has a history of the people who read and loved it; the years and places it has traveled. My grandma brought over a box of old books from a friend of hers the other day. So many treasures! Mostly early 1900s textbooks/readers and collections of American literature. A couple of novels💕. And this book--an "Illustrated Treasury of Children's Literature"! •••• #author #amwritingfantasy #fairytalefantasy #fairytaleretelling #oldbooks #jackandthebeanstalk #jackthegiantkiller #feefifofum #classicliterature #fairytales #CrownofStars

«The Rose & the Dagger» is the sequel to «The Wrath & the Dawn» and the conclusion to the duology, and though I’m not loving book 2 as much as I loved book 1, I’m still flying throught it!

Hey guys, have you read To Kill A Kingdom yet? How did you like it?
I think this might be my next read if I can find the time. 🙈 It's been quite busy here and this week's going to be more of the same.
.
Fairytale retellings have quickly become one of my favorite genres in the last couple of years - really, anything to do with fantasy, sci-fi, even dystopian novels - I never thought I would enjoy them much. But I do. One of my favorites being The Lunar Chronicles (Scarlet is my favorite in that series!) Oh, and the Illuminae files! And very recently, This Mortal Coil just blew my mind. 😍
.
Do you like fantasy, Fairytale Retellings or sci-fi stories? Which ones are your favourites?

Update: I am going to preface this post with a trigger warning for the book. There is a lot of body shaming/men controlling women’s bodies and mentions/hints of sexual assaults. Please take it into consideration before picking up this book.
Started A Surface Breaks last night. I am a huge fan of fairy tales, I’m an even bigger fan of feminist retellings of fairy tales!! The Little Mermaid has always been one of my absolute favorites so I’m really excited to see what O’Neill has done with Hans original story to really make it her own •

If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.
.
.
These are two of my favourite short fairytale story books that I have read recently! I am always on the look out for short story collections and I especially love fairytales! I will forever love fairytales and I am a fan of the classic versions! .

I am currently in Disneyland Paris and rally loving it! I love the rides and shops! Later on I am planning on meeting Captain America! .

I forgot to being my physical copy of Wicked Like A Wildfire, but luckily I brought my kindle in my backpack. What I know about Stolen Enchantress by Amber Argyle is that it’s a Beauty & the Beast retelling. For some reason, it reminds me a bit of ACOTAR based on the first chapter. I hardly seen reviews or blurbs on this book, I bought it on Amazon and the premise sounds interesting.

Work was exhaustingly slow today. I’m planning on doing homework and planning my breakfast for tomorrow since I wake up early for summer school.

Repainting an enlarged and improved version of my Snow White and the Seven Dwarves: during Snow White’s glass coffin slumber, her protectresses, a coven of seven magical lady dwarves, attempt alchemical magic deep in their silver mine. (Once this new version is done, it’s off to be scanned and then will be available for purchase on my website!)

#junebookstagram18 Day 18: Romantic Colors
These aren’t suuuuuper romantic colors but it’s the cover of a romance novel. 🤷🏼‍♀️ (it works. Plus there are flowers on it. Like from a bouquet. Ha.)
💐
Are there any uncommon fairytales you like? “The Noble Servant” is a retelling of the Goose Girl. I didn’t really know about that fairytale until I read this book!
Another fairytale favorite of mine isn’t really a fairytale - it’s a Greek myth - it’s the story of Cupid and Psyche. It’s been one of my favorites since I was in elementary school!

Anyone here looking forward to Spinning Silver next month? I have it pre-ordered from my local independent book shop and even though it's just over three weeks away I'm still impatiently waiting for the e-mail saying I can pick up my copy. The only other Naomi Novik book I've read is Uprooted and I adored it. I read it two summers ago and I remember thinking it was nothing like anything I'd ever read before. I kind of want to re-read it before Spinning Silver comes out (even though they don't actually have anything to do with each other), but I don't think I'll have time. I'm even considering buying a second copy of it, but this time a paperback, so I can annotate it. I probably shouldn't spend my money on buying multiple copies of one book instead of buying totally new ones, though 😂

Listen not to what you've heard, for stories often twist and change. Here, for you, a fairy tale of what truly-maybe-happened on that day-Madina Papadopoulos
•••••
QOTD: Do you have any favourite fairytale retellings? Or are they something you don't enjoy?📚
•••••
AOTD: I definitely do love reading fairytale retellings but I'm definitely still waiting to read my favourite. So if you have any recommendations, I'd love if you could shoot them my way!
••
The Step Spinsters is a Cinderella retelling that focuses on the step sisters story and how much truly went wrong and what really, possibly, happened during that story we all know and love. I was sent a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
••
I think that overall this book had an incredibly interesting premise and the author did a good job changing the story up from the original tale. Some people are going to like what she did with the story and characters but some people just won't be able to get past everything being turned upside down.
••
I think the characters were good but not quite fleshed out enough. That being said, this book is only 200 pages so I wasn't expecting massive amounts of character development. I am used to reading bigger books, so I did feel like things felt very surface level, but that's just because it is quite rare for me to read a fiction book of this size.
••
The writing was engaging and the overall plot was entertaining, if not a little rushed, especially towards the end. I will say there was a couple elements of the writing that i felt were good in theory but just didn't work for me as a reader. I also thought some of the dialogue to be a little bit off, I just can't quite place my finger on exactly why.
••
I think if you're a fan of Cinderella and want a VERY different take on the story, it may be worth checking it out

If you've been following my account for a bit, you know that I'm obsessed with To Kill A Kingdom by @allie_christo 💙💙It's one of my favourite books this year and one of my favourite retellings! I love both of the main characters and it revamped my love for pirates, sirens, and mermaids!

A rare two posts from me today but I wanted to share this beauty with you 📖💙 Thank you to @chantalgadouryauthor for this ARC of “Between the Sea and Stars” 🌠 The cover is beautiful and how could I resist a fantasy sea story that features Greek mythology! What's your favourite mythical creature? I'm really looking forward to reading this one and will leave the summary for you below ⬇️ It's out on the 19th June 🎉
.
.
.
.
Summary
A Legend,
A Magical Shell
A Girl Who Dreamed Of Something More...
Lena, a Merrow girl, lives in the Skagerrak sea with her father,

Carrick and her brother, Javelin who tells her of the legend of the Merrow Queen murdered by her human lover when greed takes
over. But what’s worth spilling the queen’s blood? Gifted from Poseidon, himself, a magic shell gives any human the ability to control both land and sea.
When Javelin is called to join a clan of Merrow soldiers bent on protecting their waters from human invasion, Lena resists Merrow law and ventures to the shore with no choice but to swim to land.

With newfound legs, Lena is whisked away on a new adventure with new friends and new trouble.

Everyone seems to want something from her as intrigue lurks around every corner.
Trying her best to hide who she is and remain safe from the dangers of the human world, will Lena finally find where she belongs, or will she be swept into a strong and stormy current by lust, greed, and jealousy?

❄️Blue books❄️
Happy Sunday! Have you read The Snow Child? If you’re a fan of magical realism and fairytale retellings, you definitely should. I read this novel in the middle of winter; it felt so atmospheric, enchanting, but most of all, haunting. It tells the story of Jack and Mabel, an older married couple in Alaska around 1920. Their inability to have children has pushed them further apart... that is, until a mysterious girl appears in the woods outside their home...

"We have angered the gods.  We must turn back!" Two pillars towered out of the sea.  Their jagged angles and rough surfaces promised a death to those dumb enough to pass.  They were named the Gates of the Hel and justly so.  Those that entered, were never heard from again.  Hel's Battlefield was flush with hidden rocks and angry waves.  Even the most experienced and skilled captians never made it out the other side.

But to go around it would be to suffer even a worse death.
Unless - "Eirik!" A strong clasp around his arm broke into his thoughts.  The rough shake that followed shattered them completely. "What?" Eirik turned to face his skipari with a look that demanded he be let go.  Bjerner was a bear of a man and his fear only made him stronger.  It also made him more stupid as he completely missed the look his styrimann was giving him. "We must turn back!" Bjerner roared as the boat was rocked by a heavy wave. ------ Current WIP: The Little Morgen

Happy Saturday everyone! If you haven’t been able to figure it out yet, I absolutely love fairytale remakes. And these books by @marissameyerauthor are some of my favorite retellings ever! Can you figure out from the titles what each of these Lunar Chronicles books retell what fairytales?

What are you doing for Father’s Day this weekend? I have no idea.... Sorry, Dad!

#Repost @oasisgirlmd ・・・
Everyone knows the story about Prince Henry's hunt for the beautiful girl he met at the ball, how he searched from house to house, asking every unmarried woman in five parishes to try on the glass slipper. That is a pretty tale. As usual the truth is more mundane.
👑
I think this paragraph right here sums up All The Ever Afters by Danielle Teller (published by William Morrow @williammorrowbooks ). Because simply put, this book is about Cinderella's stepmother. And no there are no fairy godmothers, no pumpkins turning into carriages, no magic. A simple story about a girl who struggles from childhood to make ends meet and fate leads her to the home of a future princess.
👑
After reading this all I could think was there always is 2 sides to a story. You'll end up seeing Cinderella from a very different perspective once you're done with this,I guarantee you that. And no, you won't end up saying bloody hell Cinderella is such a bitch. You'll see how they had a normal mother - daughter relationship. Cinderella could be trying at times and I think her stepmother did the best she could.
👑
Apart from the plot, this book is beautifully written. I was immediately captivated by Danielle Teller's manner of writing.
👑
This is probably one of the best retellings I've ever read! Solid 5 🌟.

“Once upon a time...”
.

How many of you guys like fairytale retellings? I have really enjoyed the ones I have read so far!! The Lunar Chronicles are some of my absolute favorites and now I have A Forest of a Thousand Lanterns. I haven’t read it yet but it sounds interesting and I am pretty sure it is a retelling with the Evil Queen 👑 .
What are some of your favorite retellings?
.
I am also in love with this Once Upon a Time candle from @cauldroncandleco 💜 It smells like apple, plum and pomegranate and it is so beautiful. Use my code JENNIFER10 to save in her shop!

Day 16 of #inflameslit I like big books and I can not lie! I love big books! I find it so interesting to see how different people have a different standerd as for when a book is "big" and because I love big books so much I think that I consider a book big is has to be really big😄 #winter by #marissameyer and #thefinalempire by #brandonsanderson and the other books from his #mistborn triologie are some of my favorites!

I am loving this book sooooo much. It’s been a long time since I got sucked into a book like this and wanted to read this voraciously. This is what happens when I read YA - I care too much about the characters 😭 Today was a slow day at work so I kept sneaking a chapter in here and there 🤫 I am so excited to finish it this weekend 🤗✨

Hey everyone! I have a question: what do you think of books that have people on the cover? I always go between liking and then hating, so I guess it depends for me. Usually I like them when I can’t see the face.

-Allerleirauh by Chantal Gadoury-
I’ve been a bit busy, but I want to let you all know that right now this book only 99¢!! This deal ends today, so grab your copy now! I really enjoyed reading this book, so I recommend it if you like a good fairy tale retelling. Here’s the synopsis:
.
Allerleirauh is a retelling of Donkeyskin. When her mother dies, she makes her husband, the King, swear to marry a woman with her same golden hair. Unfortunately the King finds none that will do... except for his own daughter, Aurelia. Aurelia is forced to escape, using a cloak made of a thousand different furs. Forced to hide from her father in a neighboring kingdom, she is desperate to keep her identity a secret so that he may never hurt her again but doing so might prove more and more challenging when she catches the attention of Prince Klaus?

#junebookstagram18: Any Ombré- these flowers have ombré, so I’m counting it.
#atlabooks18: Ba Sing Se: Favorite World
#bookstawarriorsjune18: Fairytale Friday

Check out this book if you want to support Chantal, and have a lovely day everyone!

I was going to wait to post until I had a physical copy when it is released on July 3rd, but I can not continue to keep this wonderful book to myself. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of "The Faceless Woman" by @emmahammauthor and I was utterly blown away by the characters, world, and story.
*
I don't have adequate words for how much I adored this book. It speaks to the dark, mischievous part of your soul that wants to dance in graveyards, run through fairy circles, and be thrown headfirst into adventure.
*
You still have time to read the previous two books in Hamm's "The Otherworld" series ("Heart of the Fae" and "Veins of Magic") before this is released (both Bran and Aisling are secondary characters!) Hamm is a fantastic world builder and creates complex and compelling characters.
*
FULL REVIEW: See Goodreads link in bio.
*
SYNOPSIS: Once upon a time… .
A town will only suffer the presence of a witch for as long as she is useful. Aisling watches the flames lick her thighs and prays for a quick death. But when an Unseelie prince appears through the smoke, she does what any self respecting witch would do. .
She curses him. .
Bran should never have traveled to the human realm, and is shocked when a witch binds them together. His life is hers and he refuses to die. He saves her from the fires, casts a hex on the townsfolk for good measure, then whisks her away to safety. His only stipulation? She has to remove the binding curse. .
Unfortunately for them both, she can’t. Witch and Unseelie must travel across the Otherworld to break the ties that bind them. Secrets and lies stand between them, but both will stop at nothing to save themselves."

AD [unpaid]
Summer is ringing, which means the blinds get put down, and curling up in bed with a drink and a mermaid book. And this is a good one, trust me. .
I have expressed on a couple of occasions on here that I‘m very hesitant about picking up fairytale retellings because I have been disapppointed a few times. It seems like that stroke of bad luck has ended. I come to crave more fairytale retellings and I couldn‘t be happier when I received an ebook ARC of this book - Between The Sea and Stars by @chantalgadouryauthor ! I haven‘t enjoyed a good mermaid story for quite some time, *cough* ten years *cough* and this Little Mermaid retelling has been just a delight! If you want to know what exactly my thoughts are on this book, head over to GoodReads where you can find my review (link in bio!). Overall, I enjoyed this story very much! I can recommend it to anyone who is a mermaid-loving-dreamer. And to anyone who needs to experience a world of new sorts - maybe one between the sea and stars! The question of belonging and believing will not let go of you easily!!! So put on your mermaid blankets, hide away from the heat, and jump into an adventure magicial, unique and still reminiscent with characters who will steal your heart and make you crave for more.
.
Make sure to grab a copy for yourself when this story hits shelves on June 19th! .
Now I can‘t wait to grab a few more books and escape the heat with some wonderful tales of underwater worlds, pirate daughters, water magic! This summer will definitely be a refreshing one for me, through words, not the beach. .
If you could be a mermaid, what would your story be?

Oh my gosh I loved this book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me. A sprinkling of a retelling of Cinderella plus a main focus on a backstory of the stepmother. All from her point of view. When authors are able to make a villain sympathetic and do it in a fantastic way it is so satisfying. I also think the title is SO clever!
👠💞
I originally wanted this badly simply because the cover is stunning. Thanks to @pnwbookworm for gifting this to me so I could stare at it and read it right away! Paired with this lovely Lunar Chronicles mug by @stellabookishart . One of my favorite stickers but always a little hard to read from Nerdy Post says “change your fate.” I think this character tried very hard to do that throughout her story.
👠💞
This is a new release so check it out when you can! (It is adult fiction) What is a fairytale you are never tired of hearing retold?

"And this is what we do for love." ❤️Rosie is live!❤️ Thank you all so much for hanging with me this week and learning more about the characters in this novella. At its heart, "Snow White and Rose Red" is a story about love...a little bit romantic, but mostly familial. "Rosie Waking" is about what happens when we lose ourselves to those relationships, and the lengths we'll go to in order to protect the people we care about. Again, it's dark AF in places, so please be careful. XOXO
