My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am a big fan of Cinderella retellings and jumped at the chance to review this one, besides isn’t that cover gorgeous? Very intriguing and has the feel of a fairytale.
I connected with Ella right away and found myself rooting for her throughout the book. She is a likable heroine who goes through a lot of growth throughout the course of the book. While I like retellings, I love when an author takes a familiar story and really makes it their own. Adding their own touches to a classic, makes for a fun read and keeps you guessing how everything is going to turn out. I’m a big fan of YA fiction, even though the target audience might be for a younger crowd (I’m young at heart!), I still find the story to be enjoyable for any age.
Overall, I thought this was a fun escape and one I’d easily recommend! I thought this was a great debut for a new author and I’ll be keeping my eye out for more books to come.
