Rating 2.5 StarsI almost decided to DNF this book quite a few times but I wanted to give this review book a fair shot before giving up I set myself a goal of reading up to 25% before making a decision Despite the constant eye rolls I was compelled to keep reading past the quarter mark The story starts off when Norah and her step sister get sent to a boarding school After being raised by her father and traveling the world with him he decided she needed a place to settle down Little did she know s [...]
Norah Hart grew up with only her half sister and father as family and never knew her mother who had not been a part of her life Now at seventeen she doesn t understand why her father insists keeping a promise to her mother made years ago when Norah was a baby to send Norah to boarding school that her own mother had attended when her mother had never been in their lives As soon as Norah arrives at the school though she quickly finds that things aren t what they seem and this isn t your ordinary s [...]
This review also appears here on A Leisure Moment I received an e copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I love fairytales, always have and always will, especially the variations over the years The Forgotten Fairytales instantly had my attention The Grimm Brothers , Hans Christian Anderson s, and other writers original dark tales without the happily ever afters are exciting and different than the stuff that Disney gave the world Retellings are great, but this didn t sound quite like [...]
5 Cranky Stars Well, this was such an enjoyable read I finished it in one sitting.Several books telling different versions of the classic fairytales had been cropping up recently The Forgotten Fairytales is jam packed with several childhood favourites and just like the main character, I was initially bewildered and even told a friend I felt like I wasn t in Kansas any Then lo and behold, Dorothy and her dog, Toto came into the scene Norah is just like any normal seventeen year old She has a dad [...]
So I picked up this book with no expectations and not really any idea of what I was getting myself into I did not expect to find my new favourite series There aren t many books that I want to re read as soon as I finish reading them, this is one.The main reason for my love of this book is Wolf.I have found my forever and always book husband Seriously The Big Bad Wolf is ahhh mazing Anyway back to the storyThis is like a teenage version of Once Upon A Time set in a boarding school Except everyone [...]
I love this book It has everything you could want in a book, action, adventure, romance, and scandal The characters are great and not what you expect a fairytale to be, I m hooked and I cannot wait for the rest of the series to be written I m amazed how much creativity and imagination Parkhurst had to come up with some of the characters, places, scenes, etc and Wolf Oh my sexy, wonderful well you better go read it and you will see for yourself.
As I love my fairytales, one of the themes I am a sucker for is renditions of classics and fairytale stories The Forgotten Fairytales reminded me of the Ever After High stories and one I read a while back which featured the theme of forgotten fairytales Norah and her half sister April have always been on the move as her dad goes from one job to another After an incident which nearly caused April her life, the girls father suggests that they need to finally settle down in one place So while he is [...]
The Forgotten Fairytales was creativity and imaginative from the start with the author taking beloved Disney characters, and ripping them to shreds, finally building them into new, original characters With plot twists, humor, and a gripping story, I couldn t put The Forgotten Fairytales down The beginning of the novel was amazing, but as I continued the book, I became less and less impressed with the curtain characters and subplots.One of the characters I became less enthusiastic about was Wolf, [...]
I wasn t too sure what to think when my friend recommended this book, but I have to admit, I dug it Wolf was awesome, Cinderella is a nasty B and Norah, well she is an awesome no nonsense, jump the gun MC She doesn t hold back and she is protective of the people she cares about I loved the twist on fairy tale characters, i found myself trying to guess them from the beginning, but seeing the new twist, esp of Cinderella, well, that wasn t expected I ll never look at Cinderella the same again or t [...]
Just read this book and I have to say that as I read the last page I was saying to myself I feel a sequel coming If your are a fan of OUAT or Once Wonderland you will enjoy this bookIt is a HOT version of those A school for fairytale characters, alittle bit of Harry Potter and alittle bit of James Patterson s Maximum Ride series I loved the chemistry between Norah and Wolfd I loved Norah s attitude and sense of humor Well written, enjoyable and I look forward to from this author.
Let me start with what I didn t like in this book before moving on to what I did since its a far shorter list to name what didn t work for me As the oldest of three technically four as I have younger stepsister as well I ve often felt a responsibility towards my siblings and their general happiness I ve failed, far often then not, because at the heart of things what I want for them and what they want for themselves to be happy are not the same thing.I ve learned to accept this and just do whate [...]
For starters, I am annoyed at myself for not realizing that this book was published two years ago Clearly, I was living under a rock At the same time, I am ecstatic that I can run off and read the second book as soon as I finish writing this review It lessens the pain of knowing I could have enjoyed this book way earlier than now The book is amazing I would put it on the level of books written by Charlie N Holmberg, though on a less complicated scale It s a young adult novel, so it s easy to rea [...]

Disclaimer I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for honest review I feel a fierce book hangover coming onI don t even know where to start This book hit just about every one of my favorite things Magic, mystery, magical creatures, romance And get this It was a fairy tale re telling Well, sort of Those are not my favorite types of stories, usually But this one It was awesome.The main character is Norah and the story told from her point of view She constantly surprised me by bei [...]
I was very impressed with the author s ability to put a new spin on a concept that has been used in other series special schools for vampires, wizards, angels, etc I was hesitant at first, but once I got into the story, I was intrigued by the storyline and the characters About half way through the book, I found myself not wanting to stop reading One aspect I found especially interesting and wish there was of was the actual forgotten fairy tales that Norah and Wolf uncover I would love to know [...]
The Forgotten Fairytales by Angela Parkhurst I Recieved this book free for a honesty review Oh my gosh what can I say about this book.I can t wait to read the next one I m a sucker for fairytale stories, I m 30 and I m pretty sure I love Disney movies than my kids I love how this book put the spin on all the different characters The only thing is I wish it would have given the Fairytale names to all the characters where I didn t have to guess which ones was what I really can t wait to read fro [...]
Loved this new take on fairy tale characters have always been fascinated with the original Brothers Grimm stories, never as sweet as Disney made them Norah and Wolf, wowey have their work cut out, hopefully taking it on together nowd kicking some serious arse Right mix of suspense and intrigue and my curiosity is now piqued for the next instalment.lots of questions needs answers Fab read.
There have been quite a few people trying their hand at fairytale reduxes This one manages to stand out Parkhurst has created some hilarious, and scary, versions of the princesses and princes we thought we knew If you re a fan of YA fairytales, and wouldn t mind seeing what a certain princess would be like if she was psychotic, then grab this book My favourite The Big Bad Wolf D
The Forgotten Fairytales is a delicious dose of suspense and romance, and will make you not want to put it down until you ve gotten to the very last page and even then you want Angela Parkhurst is a master of the written word, and I can t wait to see from her.
I started reading this book last night and could not put it down Stayed up till about 2am and at about 80% through put it down, only to pick it back up this morning to finish I loved all the characters and cannot wait for book 2
Truly an amazing book So happy I found it
I was never a fan of the Big Bad Wolfuntil I read this I m hoping for a second helping of forgotten fairytales from Parkhurst.
I couldn t put it down I got so into this book It s a great take on fairy tales that are not so, um, sweet It well hook you and make you want I know I m already ready for book 2.
Norah could not be unhappy if she tried She is use to being the happy easy to deal with sister, but the fact her father is dropping her and her sister off at a boarding school in the middle of nowhere fills her with dread But the worst part is that everyone is just a little off, her class schedule does not have the typical high school subject like math and English, but dancing and magic, and people keep calling her princess Norah is not really sure where she has found herself or what is going o [...]
For full review The Forgotten Fairytales ARC provided in exchange for an honest review The thoughts are entirely mine and in no way biased So, The Forgotten Fairytales is very Once Upon A Time ish The characters in the story all belong to storybook characters When one dies, a new is born to take their place and they all go to school to learn who they are destined to be What their story is, who are they betrothed to be with The usual cliches are still in place The royals, the villains, the fairie [...]
I love fairytales, always have and always will, especially the variations over the years The Forgotten Fairytales instantly had my attention The Grimm Brothers , Hans Christian Anderson s, and other writers original dark tales without the happily ever afters are exciting and different than the stuff that Disney gave the world Retellings are great, but this didn t sound quite like that, and the story beckoned me.Read the rest of the review Facebook Twitter Instagram BlogLovin YouTube Itunes
