I saw this when I was checking books in at work this morning and had to read it. It's an Archie-style retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, and the Little Mermaid. Betty and Veronica play the title characters (sometimes shared, as in the Little Mermaid and Rapunzel), and other Archie characters play the supporting cast (Cheryl as the Sea Witch and also the wicked queen's mirror were both a lot of fun!)
Another fun feature of this book is that each story is introduced with some historical facts, telling you when and who first wrote it down, how popular it's been, stuff like that. There were a few cases where I actually enjoyed this more than the story (Rapunzel and Beauty and the Beast in particular).
All in all, Betty and Veronica's Princess Storybook was a fun and super fast read. It was exactly what I needed after work today. :)
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
