Summer Blog Challenge – Day 29

Day 29 – Most Anticipated Read for Next Month

Next month, I have decided I’m going to to be focusing on fairytale retellings so I’ve picked out a list of books that I hope to get through and review for the month.

That means I know in advance what I’m going to be reading which could either work really well or really badly. I’m hoping it goes well because it would cut some of the work out for me with a small baby on the go, it’s one less thing to think about.

I’m probably being a bit optimistic with this one but my most anticipated read is actually going to be a series.

My most anticipated reads for next month is going to be The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.

Alison’s Adventures in Underland (Harem of Hearts #1) – C.M. Stunich

Hey guys,

Before we start I would like to point out that I did not know what a harem was until I started writing this post. I had to Google it and I’ve decided that it’s not my favourite word and it does not change my opinion of this book.

So I saw a post in a group I’m in on Facebook asking for Alice in Wonderland retellings and, given how much I usually enjoy retellings, I jumped in for the most highly recommended one without thinking of what I was getting into. Oh. Dear. God.

Alison’s Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich was that book and I thought that I was in for a dark retelling of the story I know and love and I suppose in a way I was right. But in so many ways I was wrong. This book is not suitable for young readers and it is most definitely NSFW.

A Curse so Dark and Lonely (Cursebreakers #1) – Brigid Kemmerer

This was one of the books that I always saw and like the look of but never really got around to reading. I’d seen a lot of great reviews about it and so when I saw they had it in my local library I decided to give it a go.

I love a retelling of fairytales. It’s always interesting to see how the author will take a spin on the original tale we know and love. And that is what A Curse so Dark and Lonely is. It’s a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast and this much is apparent since the beginning. So here we go; A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.
