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: Reflection by Elizabeth Lim

Right off the bat, I have to say that so far this is tied as my favorite Twisted Tale book alongside Belle's story. I just love Belle so much and thought the twist was creative and fit her character and background. I'll admit that Mulan is not one of my favorite Disney Princesses. I've learned to like her more as an adult because of her strength and independence and feministic quality and love for family and desire to protect them, things that as an adult I value. But as a kid I just thought Mushu was funny and the story was pretty good. My childhood friend will passionately argue that Mulan should under no circumstances even be included as a Disney Princesses. She wasn't born a princess, she didn't marry a prince. It's really funny to get her going on that. But this book was really good! It's the first book in the series not written by Liz Braswell.
