Enchanted Blog Tour: Review of Enchanted

320 pages
It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true. When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises. The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?

Review (Blog Tour):
I am a huge fan of fairytale retellings and I haven't been able to find a new one in a while. That being said I was happy to receive this one and I absolutely loved it! We see tales like The Frog Prince, Cinderella, and Jack and the Beanstalk, and others included in this singular story. The combination of fairytales in this novel is creative and refreshing. Sunday is the main character and although she doesn't have all of the same characteristics of a normal heroine she is still a wonderful and enjoyable character. Rumbold is the romantic prince who isn't what you may first expect. I absolutely enjoyed the romance between Sunday and Rumbold since it was just as magical as you would expect a fairytale to be but it also had some real world problems to it as well. Sunday has six other sisters, all named after the days of the week. Its interesting to see the differing characteristics Sunday's sisters have based on their names and the classic fairytales that they each play a part in. This novel is beautifully written and the kind of story that you just don't want to put down. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves fairytales, magic, and an adventurous tale.
