it was ok

Okay, what can I say about this book. I really wanted to love it, but there were just a lot of things that bugged me. I loved the idea of retelling the fairy tale of snow white, and it definitely gave new meaning to "some day my prince will come", (the rogue knight was a hit, and totally made me rethink my first kiss). But I just didn't love the heroine. She felt really underdeveloped to me, especially in comparison to the hero of the story. The "seven dwarf" characters had more to them than she did. She was so weepy and seemed like a weak character. I wanted more to her, and even though Saphyre Snow as snow white is supposed to have a certain innocence to her, I felt like her innocence almost made her dumb and clueless. I think she could have been more developed, thus more deserving of becoming the future queen of her kingdom. Having said that, I did admire her desire to help others and wanting to make them whole, but even then, it didn't feel really developed or believable. I think the author could have made more of her as a character by giving her more back ground and explaining her gift for helping others, and thus making the story more meaningful. Also, the writing style was weird. I kept thinking there were typos. It was a fun read, but it could have been a lot better.

Sandy I had issues with the wording that seemed like typos but weren't too. I had to do way too much rereading for my liking.
