Hercules was one of my favorite 90s Disney movies. It wasn't your typical princess story, but if you equate being a Greek god to being a princess then it kind of was. I am Greek and I love mythology, so I was very excited to dive into this Twisted Tale as I make my way through the series. And let me tell you, the author delivered and more!
Book Review: “Straight On Till Morning” by Liz Braswell
The Disney Twisted Tales series just keeps getting better and better. The author did another amazing job of channeling the familiar voices of Peter Pan's beloved characters while adding new twists and tales to the story.
Book Review: “Bravely” by Maggie Stiefvater
If I had known this book was coming out when it was announced in 2021 it would have been my most anticipated book! Even not knowing about it until it was released this month, I have still been long awaiting a Merida book from Disney. I've always felt Merida was my kindred princess. We both have a love of horses and archery (me more horses, her more archery, but still we both love both). We're both curly girlies with a love of independence and freedom. Since they started publishing the Twisted Tales series, I've had to watch them come up with great stories about every dang princess and then some but never Merida. It was frustrating. And then Facebook suggested this to me for an audiobook! I was elated! I immediately ordered the hardcover and set to reading it.
Book Review: “Unbirthday” by Liz Braswell (Disney Twisted Tale)
Let me start off by saying I do not believe this book fits in with the premise of Disney's Twisted Tales series. The whole point of the series is to take the original story and twist it into something else. This story is more of a sequel. It does not twist the original story but takes place when Alice is an adult, eighteen or nineteen, and goes back to Wonderland to save it from the murderous Queen of Hearts....
Book Review: “So This is Love” by Elizabeth Lim
This was one of the best books in the series by far. I like Lim's writing style probably most out of all the authors who write for this series. She has a beautiful way with words and her writing doesn't feel out of place for a period piece, but also it doesn't feel like it's trying to hard either.
