break your glass slippers by amanda lovelace {Book Review}

In recent years there has been a rise of books that contain retellings of old fairytales.

I read one earlier this year but didn’t find it as great as I thought it would turn out. I still have a few promising books with interesting plots that I want to read so the one bad experience didn’t erase that path for me.

This collection of poetry is different to the others I’ve read so far because it drew inspiration from a classic that we all know.

The collection is based on the retelling of Cinderella, hence the beautiful matching title, and I couldn’t have thought of an alternative option for it, it was so well fitting to the book.

The pieces are told from the views of Cinder, Charming and the Fairy Godmother, all of them standing out with their meanings and what the reader was suppose to draw from them. While I enjoyed all of them, the Fairy Godmother’s parts were my favourite; loving, empowering and motherly. Beautiful reminders of love and worth.

It’s suitable for young women as well as older women. There are a couple f-bombs here and there, and they were used for emphasis and didn’t come across as vulgar.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.99 on GoodReads. I gave it a 5.
