Day 16: Snow White Blood Red by Cameron Jace
Summary From Goodreads:
What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?
Book description of Snow White Blood Red: A Grimm Diaries Prequel as told by the Snow White Queen:
I have always wondered why you never asked about my name. Was I so superficial to you? So stereotypical and mundane? Why did you treat me as if I were just the monster of the week? You know what I think? You never had the time to really hate me. You wanted to hate me, long before you even met me. You wanted to scrape my existence and avenge your childhood princess by laying all blame on me. What if they didn’t call me the Evil Queen, what if I told you the real story from my point of view instead of hers, would you ever think of me as an angel? Could I ever make you care? I know that deep inside of you, you adore me,but you’re just scared, afraid to admit how much you love the Snow White Queen.
It’s time for another edition of Frodo’s Hobbit Sized Reviews! This is where I write a review in the time I have before I go to work or before I go to bed. Short and sweet just like 2nd breakfast!
Snow White Blood Red is one of six prequels to The Grimm Diaries, the first of which, Snow White Sorrow, is set to release in February of this year. This particular one as the summary states is being told from the perspective of the Snow White Queen. The story definitely paints an interesting picture and one I look forward to seeing fleshed out in full. Snow White possibly being the evil one while the Queen, if not quite good, at least might be the one in the right? I’m all for these sort of retellings and this prequel does exactly what it was designed to, tease. I really enjoyed the way the Queen was portrayed, the pacing was good and the way they ended…well let’s just say I am intrigued. I look forward to reading the rest of these prequels soon while waiting for the full versions to be released and you can get them all for 0.99¢ total on Amazon which I highly recommend you do. As always thanks for reading and come back tomorrow for Day 17!
