Sleeping Beauty, The One Who Took The Really Long Nap-A Book Review

5 Nov

Sleeping Beauty-

If at your christening an evil fairy storms in and demands why she wasn’t invited, and for revenge puts a curse on you, a curse that says when your sixteen you will prick your finger on a spinning wheel and you will fall asleep for one hundred years, you probably will never see a spinning wheel in your life. That is what happened to Sleeping Beauty, (A.K.A Rose) but life is pretty normal for her, except for the fact that she’s a princess, and she has amazing gifts from fairies like grace, beauty, intelligence, and courage but…She has a best friend Sara, parents who love her, she loves to dance, but she always wondered what she would be like if she didn’t have does amazing gifts? Anyways the curse doesn’t really have any hold over her until her sixteenth birthday…

The Prince, (116 years later)-

The Prince never had a name he was always simply known as The Prince. And The Prince has just found a mystical castle in the woods that looks identical to his own, and oh yeah one more thing…his mother is part ogre, which isn’t much of a problem except on the first and second Thursdays of the month, and she despises beauty which is kind of a problem when you fall in love with one of the most beautiful girls in the world…

My Thoughts: This was the first Twice Upon A Time book that I read and got me hooked:) I loved that the stories are told from different points of view and times. Wendy Mass does a wonderful job of making you see through the character’s eyes. My favorite character was Sara, who made such a big sacrifice for Rose. I loved to read from Rose’s point of view. It was a great read, and I love the cover:) I give this book four and a half stars out of five.
