Once I love these re tellings I LOVED these stories I m such a huge fan of fairy tale retellings and WOW these were some of the most creative and well done retellings I ve read This collection includes a retelling of Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Mulan and man they were all so different and so creative One of my favorite thing about these stories was how they changed the familial relationships In Before Midnight, instead of the stepmother being evil and awful, she s actually just a heartbroken woman who ends up developing a really loving relationship with her stepdaughter It was so refreshing to see a story where the stepmother wasn t actually evil I wish there were stories with decent step parents In Golden, the evil witch is actually just a misunderstood sorceress who takes Rapunzel as her own child I don t want to reveal too much about her reasoning behind it because of spoilers but she treats Rapunzel wonderfully and I adored seeing their dynamic And in Wild Orchid, Mulan s father at first doesn t have a relationship with his daughter, but that changes once he returns home from war They become really close and I loved seeing such a strong relationship between a father and daughter I also loved how Mulan s relationship with her stepmother played out I m glad they developed a strong bond I also just loved the romance in each of these books They were sometimes unexpected and sometimes predictable but they were so beautiful and I loved them Overall these were such lovely stories and I want to read from this author Read Happily Ever After With This Magical Repackage That Includes Three Enchanting, Retold Fairy TalesIn This Value Priced Bind Up Of Three Beloved Retellings, Readers Will Journey To Faraway Fairy Tale Lands Before Midnight Revisits Cinderella S Story In France, Golden Puts A New Spin On Rapunzel S Romance, And Wild Orchid Reimagines The Chinese Tale Of Mulan With So Much Real Life Drama In Today S Busy World, Once Allows Readers To Escape Into Whimsical Realms Where Every Story Has A Happily Ever After This book was my introduction to Cameron Dokey s writing If I could give it six stars I would BEWARE OF SPOILERSBefore Midnight CINDERELLA Okay so this was a pretty good read It only took me a day to complete I thought it was cool the whole wishing thing The twin princes was a amazing spin on it whole royals thing Oh, and I loved how only one stepsister was evil and the mother was nice I like that the glass slipper was kept in it Annnndddddd..oh I love the whole Soulmates thing 3Golden RAPUNZEL This was cool Rapunzel was bald and gave her name to the girl she saved from a forever life in a tower this is the Rapunzel we all know and love and names herself Susan and falls in love with Harry Wild Orchid MULAN Okay guyssss, this was my favorite But hey, Mulan is my favorite fairytale anyway..I just loved it I didn t like how it had all these I wish is could tell you..but actually.And they like hardly EVER showed the princes and they kissed ONCE if we were lucky Hmmmmmm Dokey DNF after Golden.After Golden, I blanked out White noise I m giving up on Dokey If Before Midnight and Golden were letdowns, I have no expectations of Wild Orchid It s a shame I love the legend of Mulan But if Dokey mishandled Cinderella and Rapunzel, I can only imagine how she mangled Mulan Movin on First story was my favorite third was my least favorite I do enjoy a good fairy tale retelling, and this included three I wish I had read these stories when I was younger I m sure I would have liked them then, before I was married with a child on the way I rolled my eyes so many times while reading this collection Before Midnight My least favorite I read these stories out of order If I had read it first, I might have liked it better These stories are all very similar, to be honest By the time I got around to reading this one, I had to force myself to sit long enough to finish it My main problem Nothing is fleshed out properly For example, Anastasia is a horrible, selfish little brat She is awful Then she finds out that Cendrillon is not a servant, and she is nicer to her So That means that suddenly we re supposed to like her and view spoiler understand why Raoul is in love with her hide spoiler AHHHHH Just bought it at BN s I love this book or books, I should say, heh heh and I LOVE THE AUTHOR
