Recommended for: book clubs and fans of fantasy, fairy tales, and women's fiction
Read from February 17 to 26, 2012

Stephanie Alexander gives happily ever after a dose of reality while expanding upon the beloved story of Cinderella. On her journey from peasant to princess, Eleanor (Cinderella’s counterpart), realizes destiny and fate aren’t all they’re "cracked" up to be in a kingdom where witches and women are oppressed by men and wizards.

The premise of this book is so unique, and I'm a huge fan of fairy tale adaptions, pseudo-renaissance settings, and unicorns. On a personal level, this really hit the spot for me! I read an early version so there were a few small typos, but it certainly didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.

Highly recommended for book club reads, fans of medieval fantasy, fairy tales, and anyone looking for an imaginative, expertly-paced story with beautiful world building.
