"The Forgotten Fairytales" (a royal Lexi review)


We're having storms down here, which makes it perfection for reading books and watching movies, all cuddled up in blankets and pillows. Or to make a fort, whether it blanket or pillow. (I'm on the sheet side, but I don't want to start a war...) And it's perfect for my dog(who is also part cat and part hyena, we're pretty sure) to hide under a bed. Currently, the one I'm in. (Poor baby.) It's also a great day to read the creepiest things young kids have ever said to their parents, grandparents, etc. on Reddit as well!

But, before you go to that link, and before the rain ends, let's move on to the book I'm reviewing today, shall we? It's The Forgotten Fairytales by Angela Parkhurst.

Summary: "Once upon a time, seventeen-year-old Norah Hart believed in the lure of fairytales and happily ever afters. That was before she was forced to live in a fairy tale nightmare.

A psychotic, couture-clad, shoe obsessed Princess.
A not-so-charming, alcoholic Prince.
A hot Big Bad Wolf that she absolutely cannot fall for—no matter how well he kisses.

If Norah had known she’d be attending a boarding school for the nut job reincarnations of fairy tale characters, she would have insisted on going to Moscow with her father. But getting out isn’t as easy as she thought. Especially once Norah realizes she, too, is a storybook character. An Unknown. The first one in over one hundred years. Soon Norah learns she has the ability to rewrite the stories, putting everyone’s Happily Ever After in jeopardy. 
Some princesses will do whatever it takes to protect their endings. Even if it means betraying the one closest to you." (Obrigado, Goodreads!) 

This novel wasn't only magical, but it was funny. Showing up at a boarding school full of tales of "Happily ever after" makes Norah think everybody there is absolutely insane, and her dad sucks big time for making her go there. From there, she tries to find her own place amongst grumpy, devious princesses, dopey princes, and other awesome people/creatures! I absolutely LOVED this novel, and I think that you will, too!

In Conclusion: Magic is still alive! Go read this book!
