Young Adult Book Club I thought it was a good book but not great. I also picked the UK book cover above because I LOVE it, and the US one is just OK... here it is in case you are curious. Also the goodreads description follows the cover:
I am very excited to have read this because Malinda Lo is going to be stopping by the YA Book Club for a Q&A! So be sure to stop by if you want to throw in a question or just read what she has to say: Group Q&A. I just finished and I have to say I really liked the re-telling of Cinderella. This was my first LGBTQ book and loved it. I thought it was great. At first I wasn't sure what to expect I must admit. But I thought it was beautiful how Lo wrote about the love between two women. I really loved the fairy tales spun into the story! There was fairy tales within fairy tales! I like the addition in the story of the faeries in the forest. BUT I didn't like the ending, it ends to abruptly. It's like the author was only allowed so many pages and just cut the ending out.
Have you ever read the original Cinderella story? You will be QUITE surprised how it really is told! Here it is, it is quite short so if you are curious check it out: Aschenputtel (Cinderella) by the Brothers Grimm !
Again.. please feel free to stop by the group to ask Ms. Lo any questions. You have till November 28th, 2011 to do it!!
