Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem Review

288 pages
Release date: December 11th, 2012

Stuck in her family's apple orchards, Kat's got plenty of work to do and only pesky Jeremy to help. But when Jeremy convinces her to run away, Kat will discover that nothing---and no one---in her life is quite what it seems. Wonderfully reimagined, this is the magical tale of Snow White as you've never read it before!

Review (ARC):
This is a beautifully written spin on the Snow White fairytale. I love the fact that this story is written from the point of view of the magic mirror and you actually get to learn its history as well. There are quite a few twists in this novel that make it different from the original Snow White and at the same time make it more intriguing. Kat is a sweet yet strong main character who doesn't know much beyond the apple orchards she helps tend. There are quite a few tragic moments in Kat's life but she finds a way to overcome them although she does go through life a bit more naive than others. There are two instead of just one potential love interest and the back story on their lives are an amazing twist as well. The dwarves are different from what you may expect but their characteristics make them even more endearing. I definitely recommend this novel if you love a great fairytale retelling.
