Beauty Sleep: A Retelling of A great retelling of a classic story. I really enjoy how Dokey (what a name!) is able to look at the traditional fairy tale character and portray him or her in a whole new way, but yet stay true to the story.

Golden (Once Upon A Time)A retelling of Rapunzel. I enjoyed it right up until the ending. Rapunzel’s escape from the tower was strange, and didn’t really fit with the rest of the book. However, the story leading up to the tower was very good, and as with Before Midnight, the characters were interesting and not at all like the traditional ones.

Before Midnight: A Retelling of I love a good fairy tale retelling. I stumbled onto this one while browsing at my library, and was pleasantly surprised. The author brings new life to the Cinderella story and adds her own spin on the motives and magic behind the characters. It’s part of the Once Upon a Time series, and I’m looking forward to some more entertaining tales.
