Book Review: Rereading “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” as an Adult

Observations, things I forgot about, things I noticed this time around as an adult that I missed as a kid. There's so much that goes on when rereading my childhood favorite!

“Conceal, Don’t Feel” by Jen Calonita

This isn't going to be a super long breakdown or review, but I do want to put this out there...this was by far the best book in the entire Twisted Tales series. I loved the twist that separated Anna and Elsa. It made sense and flowed with the story so well...Click the link to continue to read the review

Book Review: “Mirror, Mirror” by Jen Calonita

Snow White is not one of my most favorite Disney Princess stories but I did like this twisted tale, even though the twist they promised on the cover really didn't happen until the very end, the Prince being the one to be poisoned instead of Snow White.

Book Review: “Part of Your World” by Liz Braswell

I have to admit that I was not too excited to start this one as I make my way through the Twisted Tales series. Ariel isn't one of my favorite princesses and I'm not crazy about her story but I kept an open mind. This was also one of the longer books in the series too so you can understand my hesitation. I actually ended up really liking it, though!

Book Review: “The Book of Magic” by Alice Hoffman

This was a great conclusion to the Practical Magic series. I loved that all the ones that came out prior to this were all prequels to Practical Magic. This is the only one that follows up what happens to the family after their adventures in Practical Magic. Sally's girls are in their 20s and on their own, protected from knowing about magic all their lives but that catches up to them. For someone like me who has read the book once but seen the movies a thousand times, it gets confusing for me because the characters are inverted; Sally's girls are opposite in the book and the aunts are opposite in the books, or I guess in the movie. Messes with my memory of the story and I have to stop and think, wait which one is this?
