My name is Ashley Ellis…

I haven't read anything by this author in a long while, but I was super intrigued by the unconventional Cinderella retelling (evil step-father, step-brothers, fabulous and gay fairy godfather) plot. So when the author approached me, I said; "send it my way tout suite!" (lol). I LOVED it. Seriously L-O-V-E-D It! From beginning to end it was total perfection. The writing was excellent. It is told in a dual POV format. We also get a bit of insight into TIG (the heroine's mot

Blog review

Oh, this story! This beautiful, heart-wrenching, unique story! I think Katy Regnery just became my favorite author ever. I don’t even know where to start with this story...

I’m a big fan of fairy tale retellings, but somehow, Cinderella had been a blind spot for me. I somehow just accepted that there is this fairy tale about the poor girl who finds her Prince Charming, and moved onto the next one. But with Fragments of Ash, I just couldn’t do that. It’s not a book you read and then for

…sometimes love isn’t in the words we say, but in how we give and what we sacrifice, and in the hundreds of quiet, unsung actions we make on behalf of someone else, someone we care about more than ourselves.

The story of Cinderella has been told many times before but I can almost guarantee that you’ve never read one like this before! Katy Regnery took the beloved Cinderel

What a wonderful twisted spin on Cinderella. All of the books in this series are a modern twist on the old fairy tale. But this one, goodness what a twist! Lots of darkness brewing in this one along with some suspense. So many layers to unravel. It had me captivated from the first chapter.

We have our "Cinder" Ashley along with her very evil step-father and two step-brothers. Ash turns to her fairy God Father Gus for help. There is a remote farm and stars and a coon hound and a broody p

This book is unique, intense, heartbreaking and soul searching. The author took us on a ride right from the beginning of Ashley’s life. I loved Ashley her sweetness her strength and determination to never give up. Gus is one character I’ll never forget he made me laugh out loud at parts and wished he was real just to hang out with him. Julian is stubborn,
sexy, sweet guy who needs to get over his past to be able to trust in his future. If you love the other fairy tale stories of this authors, yo

Wow, this was a such twisted version of the fairy-tale "Cinderella", that it made my head spin so many times with the different turns and unexpected twists that the story kept throwing my way. In this story, we have everything reversed from the already told Cinderella tale... I'll leave that part to your inquisitive minds to figure out since this review will be spoiler free 😉

But, what I can tell you is that this story will keep you on your toes on every turn of each page, your heart racing eithe

Beautiful though not an easy read at all! For the first few chapters my stomach was cramping from Ash's life situation. The lack of love and safety she had to endure for most of her life and the HORRIFIC future her stepfather has in mind for her. I ACHED for her. She was so young and naive and yet she was much more mature than she seems. This book suppose to be a retelling of Cinderella and while there ARE a lot of similarities it's so very unique. Also love the beautiful connections between Cin ...more

Fragments of Ash Katy Regnery was the best interpretation of Cinderella like THE BEST.

To begin with, Cinderella was my least favorite Disney cartoon. I mean that girl was really stupied and naive and needed her fair portion of empowerment! Imagine yourself in her shoes, you were living in ATTIC and practically became a slave for your stepmother and her ugly daughters in YOUR OWN HOUSE!!! The only characters worth adoring were Jaq and Gas, that sweet fanny mouses! You made my childhood, folks!😍

Wow! Wow! Wow!  Yes, this was a 3-wow story.  With a deep-felt heartache that grips you through the whole book it was next to impossible to put down.  Fragments of Ash has a story line unlike anything I have ever read.  It was refreshing to read something unique and entertaining.  With the horrific subject of abuse, I was impressed the Katy Regnery donates a portion of this book sale in the month of October to a women’s center. Fragments of Ash is a wonderfully told story and I highly recommend ...more

I have yet to make it down the amazing list of books that Katy has for the modern fairytales but when I saw the sign up for this I jumped on it because Cinderella has ALWAYS been my fave fairytale! I have read and watched any and all variations of this classic and I was super excited for this and I can say with complete conviction that this telling is by far one of my favorites!

There were no magic pumpkins and no fairy godmother but real life! The twists that Katy had built in made this story s

I want to start this review by saying...Do not judge a book by it's cover! While this cover is gorgeous and light, the story inside is dark, twisted and gritty. Now don't get me wrong, in between the darkness, the story is one of hope, survival and tenderness with lots of love growing. This combination of dark and light in Fragments of Ash, is just how I love my books!

From the very beginning of Ashley's story, I was sucked in. Everything she was going through made my heart break for her, while m

Ashley's tale is one of empowerment. Her heart may have been broken, but her spirit would not be contained. She refuses to be a victim of circumstance. That's what makes her an inspiration. Regnery turns one woman's heartache into a never-ending adventure of love loss, hope found and courage revealed. Fragments of Ash combines multiple genres to create a fantastical, captivating, irresistible, unforgettable, must have addition to any bookshelf.
