Myths of Mish by Katie Hamstead

I am not usually a fairytale reader but I do enjoy reading the Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles. I love the idea of a story evolving from the ending of a famous fairytale. Even better is that the characters have their struggles from what they endured previously. I am always excited to see where the story goes. 😉 Hansel and Gretel’s tale of horror with the witch in the woods is a […]

Dragons Against Them by Kyra Jacobs

After reading the first book in this series, Dragons Among Them, I was eager to get my hands on the next installment as soon as possible and I was not disappointed! This story is mostly focused on Princess Rosalind and her deepest desire for revenge. Now, I was not in love with Rosalind from the last book but while reading this story I felt myself thawing towards her and in the […]

Mini-Reviews from June 2016 Re-Cap

As you know I read a ton of books in June. I wanted to do some “mini-reviews” (well in some cases more like rants) on a few of those books because I thought it would be fun. I gave this 2 stars. I was not the biggest fan of the storyline or characters. The fantasy portion was “been there, done that.” The romance angle, ugh too much brother and sister kissing […]

The Reflections of Queen Snow White by David Meredith

Have you ever considered the reality of a fairytale? Do you think that, say Snow White, might of had some trauma from her time with her step-mother before she decided to run free and live free with the forest animals? Well this story is amazing in that regard! Honestly, I am more of the “they lived happily ever after” and that is that girl but this story takes a different […]

She has bet it all on a gig that lands her […]

Princess of Tyrone by Katie Hamstead

The names may be changed to protect the innocent but this is a re-telling of sleeping beauty. I want to warn you of that upfront because if you are expecting the “story” but uniquely different characters then you will dissatisfied. So you now know the premise in its entirety. So what makes this story worth reading? The setting is very creative. It is set in a unique solar system with […]
