Please welcome Katie, a book blogger who is better known as half of the Inkk Reviews duo.
Hi, Im Katie and 1/2 of Inkk Reviews (Krisha my best friend being the other half). Even though I’m almost 30, I love to read YA, paranormal romance, any anything else in the realm of young adult. As much as I would love to say I am well read in the classics…I can’t, unless it involves some new YA/Paranormal twist…or zombies. I have a degree in Biology; however I lucked into an amazing job of teaching step by step painting classes (which may or may not involve drinking wine!). It doesn’t get much better than that, aside from maybe a good book and wine! I live in Tennessee with my husband, dog and cat. I enjoy rock climbing with my husband, hot yoga, and chips & salsa!
Katie has chosen the following two books to talk about today:
FIRST I READ THIS:
Cinder is, in so many words, a futuristic retelling of Cinderella with a twist. Cinder takes place in the future, in ” New Beijing” post WWIV. Cinder is a cyborg (part machine) and works in the market repairing androids when she meets Prince Kai one day in the market. Yes this story is Cinderella-esque, but that’s only the beginning. Cinder has an amazing plot that really grows away from its Cinderella roots. My review on Inkk Reviews
SO THEN I READ THIS:
Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair. . . .
Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn’t believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell.
After reading Cinder I was searching for other fairy tale – retellings and found Tiger Lily. Its very similar to Cinder in that it has some of the same characters of Peter Pan but, with a twist of its own. Tiger Lily is about life on Neverland BEFORE Wendy ever arrived. The story is told from Tinkerbell’s point of view as she lingers back and forth from Tiger Lily and her tribe to Peter and the lost boys.
