Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen

Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen - Serena Valentino I didn't really get into this. Unfortunately, since I usually love retelling.

The whole thing seemed wrapped up in daddy issues which bugged me. I know a poor upbringing can lead to long-term life issues but jeez. The whole plot seemed to be a woman whining about her childhood and her grief and taking it out on the world. She couldn't find happiness so no one else could either. She wasn't sympathetic or even very likeable to me....even in the beginning when she should have been.

This just wasn't a very inventive or clever retelling. Luckily it was a quick read....only took about 2 hours
