Ahhhh, Snow White.

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for this story but let's be honest, we all know who I most relate to...

Jen Calonita's retelling is perfect for Snow White fans, no matter whose side you're on, as it is told in alternating perspectives of Snow and the Evil Queen.

There are multiple small twists to the Disney version most of us are familiar with. It was just enough to give it a new and exciting feel. Paying fairly strict homage to the original story, you still feel compelled to keep turning the pages, as it is just different enough.

There is nothing super ground-breaking about this but I think if you go into it just looking for a fun, quick read -- an escape from the world -- you can have a heck of an enjoyable time with Mirror, Mirror. That was what I was hoping for when I picked this up and I got it.

I would have liked a bit more depth to the characters, Snow and the Evil Queen both, but I do think they had enough nuance to keep you engaged with them. I also feel like this reads more on the younger end of the YA-spectrum, maybe even verging on Middle Grade, so just know that going in.

Overall, I would recommend this to any Disney fan, especially people who like to get the villains perspective every once in a while. This is the second book I have read in the Twisted Tales series and you better believe I am going to keep reading them as long as they are putting them out!

Thank you to the publisher, Disney Book Group, for providing me a copy to read and review! As always, I appreciate the opportunity and am excited to discuss this with other readers.
