I actually came across Lucy’s blog (Book Blogger) where she created a “Series Saturday” monthly feature post. Each month she chooses one series to feature whether it is one that is completed or one that is still in progress. As I have tons of series that fit both of those categories, I decided to try out this type of post myself. I am very excited to put posts together for one series per month. I may update it to another timeline, but, for now, I am going to do this monthly.
This month’s series is:
BEWITCHING FAIRY TALES
About the Series –
While each novel in the series can be read as a standalone, there is a central theme and style. Some of the characters from other novels can play a secondary role in a story. The author combines different elements from different fairy tales to create a unique retelling rather than going with a straight retelling of one story.
Why I Chose This Series –
While I actually have only read the first three novels in the series, the stories do still stand out in my mind. I do not have an explanation as this was a new-to-me author, but I did not go into it with extremely high expectations as I was a little unsure of the style, however, it did not take long for me to be captivated by the story and characters. Stalks of Gold (#1) started off as a simple tale that turned into a complex adventure. Mirrors of Ice (#2) continued with the same simple story that became complex by the end style and cemented this as a great series for me. I loved that the author’s style carried into the third novel, Beasts of Beauty, where there is a large mix of light-hearted and emotional moments. As I still have more to go in the series, I cannot wait to read the next ones soon!
