This was exactly the kind of read I had hoped it would be. Which also means I picked it up at exactly the right time and managed to actually enjoy it, even though there were a few things that could have annoyed me at another moment. But, let's start with all the positive things:

This version of Tinkerbell is just so incredibly cute! She has a temper, of course she has, because that's very Tinkerbell, but she's also very much a teenager who experiences her first love. And it's everything a first l

I originally read this series as they were first published. I don't usually follow novella series unless I can get them as a combined story like this story is now. However, I grabbed the first episode for free and I was hooked!!! I loved everything about this story and with Peter Pan being my first love I was instantly drawn in to this fun and exciting retelling.

Tink is madly in love with Peter. But Peter wants to go home, leaving Tink

Peter Pan is my favorite book, so I was interested in seeing what Elle Strauss would do with it. I really wanted to like this but I loathed it.
Tink was so annoying, it was just to hard to read and an exercise in frustration. Very disappointing.

These were some cutesy short stories that explore if Tinkerbell actually had a huge crush on Peter Pan and if Peter Pan had a life in the real world and was struggling to find where he wanted to end up. I don't know why I didn't keep some if any notes on this one so that's really all I have to say.

I have know the magic of Neverland, Tinkerbell, the lost boys and even Hook and the pirates since I was 4 or 5 years old (I am no 68); but the magic of Neverland intermeshed with the reality of New York City far supasses any I have know before. Ms. Strauss is a superb writer with a magical flair with words and imagery unsurpassed by any author I have read. Highest kudos to a magical author and to her magical missives!!!

Book Review- Love, Tink by Elle Strauss

This story is a modern take on Peter Pan. It starts in Neverland when Peter has been there for two years already. Tinkerbell is a fairy who works for Captain Hook as a result of a treaty between Hook and the fairies. Tinkerbell arrives every morning and cleans the cave Hook calls his own when not on his ship.
Tinkerbell has a huge crush on Peter, but she is a fairy and he is a human boy. She protects him from Hook when she can. She would do anything for Pet
Tink is hopelessly smitten with Peter, the leader of the Lost Boys who'd mysteriously arrived at Neverland two years ago. Unfortunately, Peter is tired of the adventure and especially tired of dodging Captain Hook who is after his head. He just wants to go back to New York City and live his life as a normal fifteen-year-old.

Tink is the only one who can help Peter return, but it breaks her heart to do it. She just wants to make him happy, so she does the unthinkable and betrays the fairy king. No

I have reveiewed the first two books separately before they were combined into this nifty little complete series edition, which I greatly appreciate. If you would like to read my reviews, click here for the first, and here for the second. I considered continuing to review each novelette separately, but they flow so well in here that it would really be like reviewing chapters of a book, which I have no interest in doing. Okay, now that I've gotten that out of the way, onto the real review!

LOVE, TINK goes against everything I normally want in a book, yet I adored it. I’ve read a couple other Peter Pan retellings and this one offers a modern version of the tale. MG or YA readers can appreciate this clean fantasy. I read this book almost straight through, and now I’m itching to read other books by Elle Strauss.

In this version of Peter Pan, Peter is homesick and wants to leave Neverland. Tink is so love-smitten that she goes against the laws of the fairy people and helps him leave he
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free for a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Elle Strauss and Netgalley.)

This was surprisingly easy to read. The chapters were very small, but a lot happens with those few pages. This book was cute and funny at the same time! This would have been a five star book for me, but some things just didn't intrigue me. I was very interested in continuing the story though to see where "Belle" (Tinkerbell) and Peter were going to take me . I actuall

I just adored this book so very much. I mean who wouldn't love a book about what would happen to love sick Tink if Peter were to leave Neverland and go back to his home in New York. Would she be able to let him go after never being able to tell him how she feels? Would she be able to live her life without her best friend and the love of her life? And what would happen if she followed him there and found that he had moved on with his life and forgot all about her and his time in Neverland? What w ...more

This book has been on my shelf since 2012 and I've always been interested in it. For whatever reason, though, I never seemed to pick it up. When I joined the 2016 Retelling Challenge at The Daily Prophecy, I knew that I had to put this one on my to-read list.

I started reading this book on my own and, though I enjoyed it, I don't normally read books like this. So I found myself craving to read something more... adult. I ended up putting the book down and read a couple other books while this one

Review abridged from my book review blog, Reading the Alphabet.

I thoroughly enjoyed this spin on a classic. This was a refreshing spin on the story as it was primarily told from Tink’s POV (with one section being told from Peter’s POV). I thought it was clever how Tink was the one fairy that could be seen by humans and that there were more fairies than just her in Neverland. In how many retellings is she the ONLY fairy around? I liked that Tink was emotional and impulsive and no matter how she t

So you have to understand that I am in love with all things Peter Pan. I devour anything that has to do with the story be it books, movies, plays…anything. Not all of it is good but it is Peter Pan so it’s already not too bad. I am very protective of the boy who refused to grow up so it has to be amazing to make me really happy.

Love, Tink was good. It was a cute retelling from Tinkerbell’s point of view. Having Tink follow Peter into the modern world was kind of a c

REVIEW: Peter Pan Retelling set in Modern Reality NYC

Peter isn't happy in Neverland. He wants to go home to New York. Tinkerbelle's heart flutters around Peter and she wishes she had the courage to tell him how she feels. Seeing him unhappy makes her want to help him. Because Tink knows a secret that can make Peter's wish come true... but then, will SHE be happy? Sudde

I had initially been invited by NetGalley to read this in exchange for an honest review. However, I wound up buying the series. I have always loved the story of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, and Neverland. I always liked the Disney version of the movie as well as some of the others that had been done. I didn't care if this book was supposed to be for the YA crowd. I just knew I wanted to read it.

This was a very quick read, despite the multiple episodes. I was really glad that I got them
I received Love, Tink in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. Although I noticed a few errors like the lack of a quotation mark here and there, I really enjoyed reading about Tink. Tink and Jangle were both very interesting characters and they both surprised me on numerous occasions, especially Jangle who was one of my favorite characters. Tinkle was a bit pitiful following Peter around New York forever like a stalked when he had no clue who she was but she definently redeemed ...more

I've always loved the story of Peter Pan and I think the author did a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the story and Tinkerbell's personality in this modern rendition.

This story actually makes more sense then the fairytale version because it ties off loose ends, such as why Hook is there, how Peter Pan got there, how the Lost Boys arrived, even the addition of more fairies then just Tinkerbell makes more sense. Now THIS is a book series that would make a wonderful retelling of Peter Pa

A blended version of modern day meets classic literature. The story starts off with Peter already in Neverland and his ongoing feud with Captain Hook. Tinkerbell has a crush on Peter and helps to send him home to NYC. Tinkerbell decides to follow him to NYC to tell him how she feels about him. She enlists her fairy friend, Jangles, to help her out. They both end up in NYC and have quite the adventure in their new human bodies. Unbeknownst to Tink, Peter already has a girlfriend, Wendy. I won't r ...more

I thought this book was a cute one-time read. I wouldn't read it more than once, but reading it was not a waste of time. I enjoyed Tink's character, but her hopeless, naive act felt tired by the end of the series. This book was less YA and more children's if I'm being honest. I liked the twist on Peter Pan, but it was not the best I've ever read.

It's a cute story of Tinkerbell and Peter Pan. I really don't know how to go into details without making it sound like I didn't like it. I'm neutral on the story.

It's a different take on how Peter got to Neverland. It's an interesting concept.

Tinkerbell is slightly annoying. Some of what goes on seems pointless.

I think younger (middle school aged) people may enjoy this more than anyone else.
I'm always so sad when Elle's books end. In just a few chapters she's created a whole new world of magic and love, with just enough detail to make you imagine a past and a future and leaves you wanting to know more. Love, Tink is a just a simple teenage love story but with a tantalizing look into the fairy Kingdom of Neverland.

Cute, easy-to-read series about Tinkerbell and her adventures and misadventures with Peter Pan(elli). Because she is in love with Peter, she steals the queen's fairy dust from the castle and is able to get Peter back to New York, but then she can't live without him and decides she wants to go, too.

There were some unbelievable parts, but it was entertaining and a clean read.

This book just didn't do it for me. Tink was different than I expected and I couldn't connect with her. She annoyed me most of the time and that's a shame, because the world-building started interesting. I feel sad that it didn't work for me :(

It's a fun kind of series knowing there is two fairies in the human world and seeing how the get around New York. You also feel the emotions Tink has when she's around Peter.

I love how the words are poetic. There are surprises waiting to be read.

A cute and fun retelling of Peter Pan in modern day New York. Although Tink did annoy me slightly (hence, only 4 out of 5 stars), it was still a fun and easy read.
