Review: Entwined by Heather Dixon


5 yummy tagalongs.

Cover Love: Yes! It is so beautiful.

Why I Wanted to Read This:
Well, the cover was a big reason, it caught my eye very quickly! Secondly, it is a re-telling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, one of my favorite fairy tales. And I love re-tellings of most fairy tales! Here's the synopsis from Good Reads:

Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.

The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.

Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.

But there is a cost.

The Keeper likes to keep things.

Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

I Kept Reading Because: It was awesome. Easy to read and follow.

Romance?: Yes!

What I Liked (& Didn't):
I really liked Azalea. She was a strong heroine who had her moments of doubts. It made her more accessible for the reader. I didn't really like Bramble (the second sister), luckily she's not in there a ton so it didn't ruin anything for me.

  1. I want to read this book so badly. I think it's actually following because everywhere I turn, it's there! Lol.
