Cinderella killed my father.

She thinks she can do anything because she’s the Evil Queen. And my stepmother. The only thing she truly loves is her Demon Mirror. But the more she gazes into that thing, the crazier she becomes.

But I am no longer a child. I won’t allow the Evil Queen to poison my heart and my home. Although my skin is white as snow, my soul is far from pure. I

AHH! Do you see a girl who is wallowing in the puddle of disappointment? Yeah, that's basically me. After reading the first book in the series and drowned in the sea of darkness and merrily waiting to jump into the next book, I was so heartbroken by how much this book disappointed me. Why would the first book in a series could be such an eye catcher if the next book was not good enough?

As the title says, here we see Snow White's antics and how she was tortured by her

I got this for free from the author when she did a mini-giveaway/promotion a few days after the release date, you can look at the status here if you want.:)

I didn't promise a favorable review in exchange, my opinions are my own.

Cinderella killed my father.

I don’t know how she did it. But he’s gone. Not even a body to bury.

When I ask her, she simply laughs and says he got what he deserved. She thinks she can do anything because she is queen.

And my stepmother.

I can’t bring back my father.

I couldn't wait to read the next dark fairytale, and this one was no disappointment. Snow White wasn't as rotten as Cinderella, but her story was a tragic one and I liked that there was a romantic story along with her revenge one. Just like with the first book, it was quick paced and easy to read. Can't wait for the next one!!

This series is becoming one of my favorite fairy tale retellings that I've recently read. This was dark, twisted, and messed up, yet I can't wait for more.

I really liked the first book..... What happened?

My Rant may have spoilers

Snow i really disliked but felt sorry for as no one ever loved her, apart from Supposedly hunter but he was as fickle as a pair of well used second hand shoes.... What he did was about as heroic as a pillowcase, leave snow locked in a palace with an evil mirror while he took her stepmother who has been has been brutal to snow, whisking said evil queen her off to a cabin in the woods cares for her and falls in love, becaus

3.5ish stars because this was so much better
This book is such an improvement from its ancestor. It felt rushed tk be honest, but I really enjoyed it. I just hoped that this was a normal length book. It would feel better. I hope Rotten Rapunzel is even better, because this series has so much potential.

This author has a way of making lovely characters so evil that they're unlovable. At least in this one, some of Snow White's evilness, but I still feel like there was no reason for most of it. She was extremely selfish, and just got worse as the story went on. I like the twist of having these fairy tale characters be dark and twisted, but it's way too much, and I can't bring myself to really enjoy it.

This is soo not good. I really didn't like this book. At least I didn't hate it.

Valle continues with her same twisted and dark retelling, now with the Snow White and the evil Queen. Cinderella is the Evil Queen. Snow White, as her name suggests, is white in her complexion but not in her heart. This is soo twisted from the first book as both Cinderella and Snow White wants Hunter! Yes, you've heard me.

And guess what?? Snow White is the Snow Queen! Duh.

I am blaming this all on that wretched old ha

Another wonderful retelling of a well-known story Snow White but this time there's a Snow White Vs Cinderella with the most beautiful sad ending ,Oh God I really loved the ending.
I can't wait for the next book that'll be about Rapunzel I guess .

Wow third time reading, third time loving it! I swear every time I read this I honestly cry. All of Anita Valle's books are amazing and I especially love this series.

I love all the characters in this book. Snow White is an amazing main character and even though I didn't agree with some of the choices she made I still loved her as a character, she was a really smart main character and didn't listen to what people thought of her or what

A great continuation taking place after Sinful Cinderella. I really enjoyed Sinful Cinderella because it was a unique approach to the classic fairytale characters we know and love. Sneaky Snow White continues this approach with another beloved fairytale heroine. These fairytale princesses who are typically known for their kindness and innocence succumb to evil in these books. It is such an interesting approach that I'm surprised no one else has done it yet. I applaud the author for being brave e ...more

In the first book we see a dark side of Cinderella - hellbent on having revenge and punishing her stepmother and sisters, nasty little cinders schemes her way to becoming Queen with the use of magic and with the help of Godnutter. When she marries the King she is introduced to his daughter Snow. In this book then you've got Cinderella as the Evil Queen and Snow White as a bratty little bitch.... She is actually worse than Cinderella was. All these characters are horrid. I enjoy how a charac
These aren't just "what if the Disney princesses were really mean" - the bones of the fairy tales are there, but recontextualized in interesting ways.

This one isn't as flashy as the first, but it's more emotionally satisfying - Snowy's motivations are much more concrete than Cindy's, and her age matches her behavior without a hitch.

While I liked the first book better in this series so far, this was still a clever twist on Snow White. Fast paced and short it kept my attention. At times...well maybe a lot...the wording is very YA but I just couldn’t stop reading.

While I absolutely loved Sinful Cinderella, I did not love Sneaky Snow White. The big difference for me was that despite Cinderella being selfish and bad, she still had reasons for me to empathize with her. She had some redeeming qualities that made sense, so I actually cared what happened to her when evil started to get its clutches on her.

Snow White…had no redeeming qualities. She was never the sweet girl who was supposed to rule the kingdom. She never had a great relationship with her father,

Anyways, I really needed something to get me reading and feel alive. *Ahem* Let me just talk about the book for now.

A 'sequel' to Sinful Cinderella. In this book, Cinderella is Snow White's stepmother. Snow is in love with Hunter, and is terrified of the evil mirror in her stepmother's room. A complete twist on the original, the Dwarves aren't dwarves and are Hunter's brothers, the Hunter doesn't try to kill her, the stepmother is pregnant, and Snow White wants to kill her and steal her baby. Or babies, as the case may be. When disillusionment sets in, she takes the baby and walls herself into a tower with ic ...more

This was so much more dynamic and exciting than the first novel! Snow White's character was very enjoyable compared to Cinderella's (she was no where near as repetitive and whiny!!). I had a lot of fun watching the story unfold and all the twists that came along with it. I love that characters from the last book were still around for this one - Valle did a lovely job tying them in to contribute beautifully to the overall storyline. Seriously, one of my favorite aspects of these books is how ever ...more
After reading Sinful Cinderella I was not holding out hope for the sequel. I had been sucked in my the pretty cover art and the promise of twisty, dark fun that Sinful Cinderella seemed to promise. Alas, I was sadly disappointed. I did finish that book quickly and because I had a hard time falling asleep this morning I chose to pick this up and read it. I did like this one much more than the last book. This voices of both Cinderella in the first story and Snowy in this one are a bit too similar. ...more

This was an interesting story, giving a new perspective to the fairy tales we all know and love, but having it told in the perspective of a whiny teenager takes away from the excitement. Not to mention, the main character tells us what is happening. There's not as much action, and everything happens so fast. What happens at the end comes as a bit of a surprise because we don't get to know the characters enough for it to make sense. It was a good story, and a refreshingly new perspective on the p ...more

Although my skin is white as snow, my soul is far from pure.

This Cinderella + Snow White + Sleeping Beauty + Frozen retelling wasn't as entertaining as the first book of this series 😢
There's something wrong with this one, it seemed to be less cured than Sinful Cinderella. 😪
I will still read the next book, hoping it will be far better than this one 😊
(I still don't know if I should rate it with two or three stars, so probably the rating will change in the next few days)

So good.

I used to be scared of indie novels, but authors such as Anita Valle are changing that. After reading the first book in this series, I had to come back for more! While these books may not be the most cheery and innocent, they feed a curiosity, and their darker nature is exciting. I am totally hooked, and can't wait for the rest of the series! So if you liked Sinful Cinderella, you'll love Sneaky Snow White.

I listened to Sneaky Snow White on my kindle. I loved this book. I think she did a good job of changing Snow White's character. She is not the sweet, simple girl we know. She is complex and evil. Although we got to know Cinderella as evil in the first book she changes in this book. The relationship with Hunter throughout the book is very interesting. Overall I enjoyed this fairy tale retelling with a twist. I think Anita Valle did a wonderful job. I can't wait for Rotten Rapunzel.

I didn't care too much for the first part of this book because I didn't like how Snow White was being an annoying brat. So, I immediately thought, 'That sucks because the first book was awesome.' Then the second half of the book got a whole lot more interesting story wise and I'm probably going to read the third book. If you like your fairy tale retellings a little darker and you like rooting for the villains then check this series out.

Just as I enjoyed the first book Sinful Cinderella , I loved this one as well. Author Anita Valle's imagination and writing just blew me away. If Wilhelm and Jakob Grimm were still alive and could read these two books now, they would probably eat their hearts out - literally!

A different shade of Snow.

Snow White, we loved how not only she was beautiful, but sweet and good. Well, not here! It was an interesting twist how she was not what we came to know her as. Snow ended up being a brat and very sneaky. How she got Cinderella to eat the poison apple and how gave it to her. Huh! Sneaky indead!

What a tale!

Author does a great job of tying in so many plot lines in such a creative way. Keeps you intrigued the whole way through and writes the characters in a way that you have strong emotions for them (whether good or bad)
It's a quick read, but oh so interesting. Highly recommend
