Cinderella is Dead – Kalynn Bayron [Books}

Twisted Tales: So This Is Love – Elizabeth Lim [Books]

Yep, it’s another Twisted Tales book, so far one of my favourite ever series. I really hope these books keep coming, because I will definitely keep reading. And the next cover has just been revealed – Unbirthday, an Alice in Wonderland tale. So far my favourite is Reflection, but I think this takes the second top spot.Continue reading “Twisted Tales: So This Is Love – Elizabeth Lim [Books]”

April 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]

January / February / March Part 1 / March Part 2 I am not doing great at getting these up in a timely way. Ah well. April was another month in which I finished a lot of books, which means this is going to be another two parter. April also saw me complete my 2020 Reading Goal, whichContinue reading “April 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]”

Beauty – Sarah Pinborough [Books]

Tales From The Kingdoms Reviews: Poison / Charm If you previously read my reviews for Poison and Charm, you might notice I actually read the three books in this series quite close together. Almost as soon as I finished Poison, I ordered the next two, mainly because I was instantly gripped with the urge to read more. Beauty is the final installment inContinue reading “Beauty – Sarah Pinborough [Books]”

The Tales of Beedle the Bard – J.K Rowling [Books]

I originally read this book many years ago, shortly after its release, when a friend leant it to me in university. I remember finishing it in one sitting, and sort of enjoying it, but not enough that I ever really sought it out to read again. When this popped up as a free read onContinue reading “The Tales of Beedle the Bard – J.K Rowling [Books]”

March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]

January Wrap Up / February Wrap Up I read 16 books in March. It was a very strange month – GP advised me to remain isolated for 2 weeks, which meant I missed the last two weeks of my workplace being open. There was then a gap where they didn’t know if we’d be able toContinue reading “March 2020 Reading Wrap Up – Part One [Books]”

Charm – Sarah Pinborough [Book Review]

As soon as I finished Sarah Pinborough’s Poison, I knew I needed the next two books in the series in my life as soon as possible. I am a complete sucker for fairy tale retellings, and although the first book wasn’t amazing enough to blow my mind (I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads), it got meContinue reading “Charm – Sarah Pinborough [Book Review]”

Poison – Sarah Pinborough [Books]

Poison is a slightly darker, twisted version of the Snow White story, adding in a little adult content and ensuring things aren’t as clear-cut as the story we’re used to. I won’t do my usual synopsis style introduction here, because I’d be surprised if anyone doesn’t know the story of Snow White, but I will say some ofContinue reading “Poison – Sarah Pinborough [Books]”

Twisted Tales Books

Welcome to day three of my Disney blog themed posts, during which I will be in both Disneyland AND Walt Disney Studios. Exciting times. I am also now officially thirty, which is odd cause in my head I’m still somewhere in my early 20s. Today I’m going to talk about one of my favourite bookContinue reading “Twisted Tales Books”
