CHARACTERS ☆ Cinderella Is Dead FREE READ Cinderella Is Dead It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince but the fairy tale is over Teen girls are now reuired to appear at the Annual Ball where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery If a suitable match is not found the girls not chosen are never heard from againSixteen ye. I d pitch this as Black Cinderella falls in love with Merida and together they destroy the patriarchyI had extremely high hopes for this one because the premise is really fucking good And while I am often tired of seeing the same tropes and stories being recycled over and over again this doesn t apply when a well known concept is reinvented through a ueer or otherwise diverse lens When I started reading I was instantly in awe The writing was piercing the words sharp like a needle and I loved how the first chapters built this cruel patriarchal world in which it was impossible for a young ueer woman to strive or live without fear But then it went downhill rather uickly It was a mix of things but my biggest problem was that the plot was all over the place There were many plot holes to this day I still wonder why the love interest just happened to have a spare set of clothes stored in an empty chapel and soon the characters fell flat too And the world building And even the romance It feels like the editor paid close attention to the first few chapters and then sent the manuscript to the printer without giving it a second thoughtIn the end it s a great concept with endless potential and a shining beginning but it ultimately failed to convince meFind of my books on Instagram

BLOG Instagram Twitter Waterstones Thank you NetGalley and Bloomsbury YA for this ARC All thoughts and opinions are mine I think we sometimes make the mistake of thinking monsters are abhorrent aberrations lurking in the darkest recesses when the truth is far disturbingThe most monstrous of men are those who sit in plain sightdaring you to challenge them I ve never been a fan of the Cinderella fairytale It s a lovely fairytale don t get me wrong And I certainly appreciate it But it s not one of my favorites Why then would you read this book I too would ask Well it s a retelling right Retellings build upon the skeleton of the original and from there the writer can go anywhere do anything create something new on that foundation It s why I enjoy reading retellings Cinderella Is Dead went past the early stages of the story we all know and gave us a picture of the setting 200 years after Cinderella diesMy biggest disappointment with this novel is how shallow it is as far as development There is not enough depth to the world building or to characters or to their actions We know the bare minimum so that we can follow along with the storytelling After Cinderella dies Prince Charming angrily decides that women will stop having any rights because Cinderella did not love him as he saw fit men will control them and he gets his pick of the lot whenever he wants These rules follow every king hereafter In short he s a spoiled brat and that s his drive And by his decrees because in this world it seems that most men are shaped with the same cloth that shaped Prince Charming almost every male that our lead comes across with the exception of just three of them are all horrible human beings who just want to inflict pain on women use them and discard them as they see fit That line never sits right with me whenever an author uses it in a storySophia our lead Well I still don t know her I know that she doesn t want to marry a man just because her king demands it which is valid and that she wants to get out of this situation She s headstrong and stubborn and most of the time does whatever she wants without regard for anyone else or much thought to her actions That s all that I know about her I neither liked her nor disliked her except to find her instant lustlove towards Constance to be one dimensional and unbelievable Sophia swears that she s in love with Erin her sweetheart and yet after just one night in Constance s presence she starts thinking to herself Her body backlit by the flames is like a vision She is tall and strong She s got her sleeves pushed up a wide jagged scar runs over the muscles of her upper arm They flex as she stokes the flames I imagine how they might feel wrapped around me and I wonder if she can tell how enthralled I am with her You just met this girl How can you be enthralled by someone that you know nothing about Sophia s feelings towards Constance s and Constance s immediate reciprocation and constant flirting see what I did there was hammered into me from their first meeting And during moments when I wanted to be focused on the story it would rear its awkward head up again and detract from the bit of plot that I wanted to follow It felt forcedAfter a few chapters that dragged and some planning by the characters to figure out how to beat the backwards system in the world of this novel we finally come to the end of the story It involved a lot of Sophia who has run away from the kingdom so that she s not killed waltzing right back into the palace without any guard recognizing that this is the girl they re chasing after Once that s done and the king most obviously sees her among the other girls the two engage in fairly poor comebacks against each other until she gets locked in a pantry sized room to await his evil deeds against her I wanted to like the ending because it was to be the saving grace at this point But it was as bland as I found most of the rest of the story and ended in a predicable manner King Manford doesn t really have a reason to be the way that he is there s no point to his villainous nature and I felt like the author kept pulling twists and turns and reveals from her sleeve at random to help make sense of things but they didn t add up Sure Sophia and Constance get what they want at the close but we expect it Nothing that came before it left a lasting impressionDespite everything that I didn t enjoy the twist given to Amina s role our fairy godmother was great No she does not have much development either but I m glad that her character was different from what we expected I like that it drew from a darker source and gave her a slightly sinister veneer Who she is to Manford came out of nowhere but I suppose it works And while the king s history before Cinderella is flimsy at best the way that he keeps himself going was intriguing and definitely fits his role of antagonist even if it s something that has been done many times pastThe writing touched the mere surface of the story and a lot life could have been imbued into every aspect of it It unfortunately fell very short from my expectations
