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.

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.
