Book Review – Letters to Zell

Happy Sunday everyone!

This week was my first offical week of lectures and boy have I felt it! I already feel behind even though it’s only week one 😮

When they say second year is hard they really mean it! I don’t think I’ve ever read so many journal articles in one week before!

Anyway, today I’m posting a short book review on a book I brought a few months ago but only just got around to reading – Letters to Zell by Camille Griep.

Letters to Zell

Here’s the description from Amazon:

“Everything is going according to story for CeCi (Cinderella), Bianca (Snow White), and Rory (Sleeping Beauty)—until the day that Zell (Rapunzel) decides to leave Grimmland and pursue her life. Now, Zell’s best friends are left to wonder whether their own passions are worth risking their predetermined “happily ever afters,” regardless of the consequences. CeCi wonders whether she should become a professional chef, sharp-tongued and quick-witted Bianca wants to escape an engagement to her platonic friend, and Rory will do anything to make her boorish husband love her. But as Bianca’s wedding approaches, can they escape their fates—and is there enough wine in all of the Realm to help them?”

I found the book entertaining, a short read and it provided a refreshing take on old stories! It fit in particularly well with my current Once Upon a Time obsession (please no spoilers!).

This book isn’t suitable for younger readers as it has some adults themes and swearing in. The only thing I didn’t like was that I sometimes got a bit confused about who the letters were from as it wasn’t always clear!

The boom has a desperate housewives aura to it and to be quite frank the characters are incredibly bitchy!

Although the book isn’t necessarily aimed at the young adult audience it would fit in quite well.

How about you? Have you read any good books this month?
