I had a lot of time in a car last week so I brought one of my all time favorite books to keep me entertained. I hadn't read Ella Enchanted for probably 10 years and it was definitely time for a reread.

I loved it once again. I was wrapped up in the characters and the story just as much as the first time I read it. It's an easy read without complicated language so my 5, 7, and 9 year old daughters loved listening to me read it aloud, but it's written intelligently and beautifully so that I was engaged just as much as the kids.

I love the way the elements of the Cinderella story are presented in a way that they fit together better and make a more fulfilling story than the original fairytale. Even though it's a retelling it's fresh and feels completely new. The romance between Ella and the prince is developed well, is believable, and brings such warm fuzzies.

This wasn't my first reading of this book and it definitely won't be the last.
