Light and funny. Interesting look on the classic fairy tales. If only the author had skipped the contemporary terms.

Recommends it for: Lovers of fairy tales with a unique spin to it.
One of the best things about fairy tales are the many different takes/twists one can put to a fairy tale. And when they're done well, it can be an amazing thing (i.e. Cinder and the rest of the Lunar Chronicles and the show Once Upon A Time, one of my favorite shows). It's always interesting for me to read an author's take on the fairy tales we are familiar with. In Fairy Tales and Ever Afters, Monsch does a wonderful job putting her own spin on these tales. They're unique and surprising, even f ...more

First Reads Review - Fairy Tales and Ever Afters Vol One by Danielle Monsch

So I wasn't sure of this one when I learned I won it, but I did enjoy this volume, and thought that the author did a good job of thematically linking all the novellas with the fairy tale aspects and the Fairy Godmother aspects in particular. Along those lines, I thought that the structure was effective and liked the order of the stories as well as the content. The second story for me was the weakest but then fit best in t

I absolutely adored this First Reads book. I was actually surprised that I enjoyed this as much as I did. I can't wait to find some more. Though had I just read the first story in the book by itself and not some of the others I probably would not have read anymore of this author. To many Fairy godmother this and fairy Godmother that when a simple name would have been sufficient after the first few. Other than that the book was a great read and I would suggest this to anyone who wants a quick rea ...more

May have rated it higher with exception of a few really rough choices of words by characters you were supposed to believe were evolved above the vulgarity. There are only a few words that I truly find vulgar and they had to use them toward the end...I think it would have kept you seeing them in a different light had the author chosen not to include one word especially. Too bad...most women especially dislike the choice she used....sorry just how I feel.

Fairy tales with a twist and I loved it. I won this book on Goodreads. Thank you
Read this within a collection of fantasy stories titled MAGIC AFTER DARK BOXED SET and I've reviewed each individual story on the separate goodreads pages...

It wasn't bad. Had some irritating parts though (eg, 2 men's response to rape...)

Pretty good re-telling of Cinderella, interesting twists, nice romance angle...kind of predictable, but for a short read, not bad.

I'm fine with fairytales being re-imagined, but there was no need for the sex scenes that amounted to porn in book form! This was a waste of my time to read. ...more

Once upon a time a not so effective Fairy Godmother (FG) was assigned to a handsome man named Tiernan. Tiernan is dying, his FG asks him to ask for healing and she can grant him his one wish and he will live. He asks instead to be just like her. There are meetings and more meetings. It's just never been done! A Fairy Godfather? But his wish is granted. He is mentored and works his way up to having his own assignments. The Fairy Godmothers all love him, follow him around, save one - Reina, who me ...more

I have a hard time rating this book. First off, it's three loosely connected stories based on classic fairy tales but with a remixed twist rather than one, full book-length tale.

Secondly, the stories are full of anachronisms in dialog and references which make them feel as if they're taking place in a modern era as opposed to a vague medieval one.

But the worst aspect for me was the out-of-left-field vulgarity and crassness of the sex scenes. It went from light and fluffy fairy tales to raunchy v

I read this as part of the Magic After Dark collection (which I got for a steal at $.99). I had never read this author, nor had I previously heard of her.
I was very pleasantly surprised! This was definitely a gem - I enjoyed the three stories- and I'd really like to haev my own Fairy Godfather! Please and thank you.

This is definitely a lighthearted collection - I wouldn't suggest reading it if you're into dark and broody. But if you like light-hearted and some fairly comedic statements, then I

I love this series. Danielle has such a good feel about switching Fairy Tales to a more contemporary story. This is a double story. I didn't have this story before but did review Loving An Ugly Beast. The first book here is the Cinderella switch up. Reina is a Fairy Godmother. Tiernan was a knight who battled to the point of death. Reina gave him a last wish. He wished to be a Godmother too. Soon they got a job to help Cinderella. There are some small spoilers. Read this story for the sad, happy ...more

I picked up this book as part of a bundle promotion in the Magic After Dark Boxed Set. While part of the set itself, this is also a collection of three stories. The stories for Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty have been remixed beautifully. Monsch is truly a wonderful writer, and I cannot wait to see what else she has out there. I would definitely recommend this author to others.

I have been loving to twists on old fairy tales that have been coming out. I love to see how others perceive and put their spin on a classic. This book does not disappoint. This is a great summer book.

It was a retelling of Cinderella story but with a different twist. It was a cute book with some interesting ideals on the story and how it was because the fg's has a hea quota that they had meet. It was also a beauty and the beast story. But it was a cute read might read it again ...more

Good fluff book... Too harlequin-esque for my taste. I couldn't really get invested in either the characters or the story.
Like I said, nice fluff to just waste a few hours on.

I really loved the concept of this novel, the twist on fairy tales and fairy godmothers. But, all the sex could of been left out and I would have enjoyed it more.
