5.0 out of 5 stars An epic spin and a must read! 3 October 2015
By Cheree~For Love of Books4 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was amazing!! Not only because I found some new authors to love, but the twist on these fairytales is genius!! I of course had my favorites, but there were all just so good! I’m impressed with the imagination and talent on how the stories were twisted, making me think “that was so much better than the original!” OK I am going to give a teeny tiny, abbreviated thought on each story ;) but I really enjoyed the writing style of all the authors, even if I didn’t like the story.
**Unlocked by Wendy Owens ~ twist on Little Red Riding Hood- Very interesting! What a fun twist on this story. Exciting and full of action and suspense, and a twist I never saw coming!
**Blayze & Ash by Jessica Sorenson ~ twist on Beauty and the Beast- FREAKING LOVED this story! Beauty & the Beast is my fav Disney story, so I was nervous for this one, but it was great! I really loved how it came together, so different yet the same. The ending made me tear up a tiny bit and left me warm and smiling.
**The Little Mermaid by K.R. Wilburn- GREAT twist. Really enjoyed how the tables were turned in this version, and the ending was perfect. Twisty greatness ;)
**Dance with Me by Tish Thawer ~ 12 Prncesses- This was a good story, honestly, the only version of this story I know is the Barbie version my 3 year old loves, and boy was this one different! This brings out a lot of different emotions and I really liked the way it ended.
**Awakened by Kristen Strassel ~ Sleeping Beauty- Dark and twisted! Not at all what you would expect from a Sleeping Beauty story, I enjoyed it very much
**Priceless by Sarah J. Pepper ~ Rumplestiltskin- I freaking LOVED this story!! The minute I finished it I went straight to my computer to stalk this author and get some more of her work, which left me very pleased after seeing her books! I am surprised how much I loved it, because this type of story isn’t really my genre, but yep, epic! And I can’t wait to read more by her!!!
**The Snow Queen by Shannon Morton- This one was very hard for me to read  the writing and imagination of the author is great and she is without a doubt talented, but the story itself left me with a tummy ache. I literally hate the main character! LOL Just a vile and dark creature. I kept waiting for the turning point where she realized she was an evil demon spawn of satan…but it never came. She was just an evil human being and I had a hard time reading about the joy she got from destroying beautiful souls  I really want to go read something else by this author so I can write a review for a story that leaves me happy, because I did enjoy her style very much!
**Caged by LP Dover ~ Rapunzel- Great love story! Full of hope, heartache, betrayal, and a fight for your heart that is inspiring!
**Puss in Boots by Brynn Myers- Another great love story with a twist that just makes you smile….and cringe a little in places, but all in all just a fantastic story that has you really cheering on the characters.
**Rell by Amy Daws ~ Cinderella- I really loved this twist! Made me cry in all the wrong places, yes I said that, because I’m a weirdo and cried at all happy parts, and I didn’t want it to end! Great great story!
**Casting Crowns and Other Curious Things by Elizabeth Montgomery ~ Alice in Wonderland – This was a fun and dark twist that I very much enjoyed. Will be looking for more from this author.
**Hansel & Gretel by Cameo Renae- OK, I’m not gonna lie, I went into this book purely to read this story! I am a sucker for a Cameo Renae story! This epic tale was set in the ARV-3 world and just…so….freaking….AMAZING!!! Hands down my fav in the book, and once again having me long for book 4 or anything from this scary and fantastic post apoc world!
**Real Boy by Kellie Sheridan ~ Pinochio- I really liked this twist, totally creepy for me because I already have a fear of robots taking over the world LOL but I just felt like it just ended way to fast. It got all intense and exciting!! I sat up in and got anxious and then BAM! It just spun and was over  I wanted just a little more drawn out ending. But I guess me wanting more is a good thing. It must be hard when it’s a short story.
**Jaclyn and the Beanstalk by M. Clarke – This was another fantastic twist with a great ending, one that left you satisfied, but also with the giddiness that there could be more of a story to come, fingers crossed!
So all in all I adore this book full of twisted fairy tales by such amazing and talented authors! Even the one story that hurt my heart to read was amazing and well written. A book that is a must read and can’t wait to get it on my shelf!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Disney Fairy Tales, But Sooo Much More 3 October 2015
By Rae Sontheyon (@Hey, It Was Free!) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Everyone loves a good Fairy Tale and these 14 amazing authors delivered twisted, beautiful, passionate, contemporary and magical renditions of timeless classics. Having all these crazy novellas put together in one set is a "Dream Come True" and should be grabbed up immediately for your enjoyment. These short tales leave you wanting more and more.

My Quick Thoughts:
"Uncloaked" by Wendy Owens-
Not a typical Little red riding hood story. It's vampires, or the reborn, vs. werewolves with the help of witches and fae.

"Blayze & Ash" by Jessica Sorenson-
Modern day Beauty & the Beast. Blayze is self sacrificing and feisty. Ash is a prick but Blayze brings love into his life and turns his life around.

"Little Mermaid" by K.R. Wilburn-
Navy Seal meets Triton's runaway princess. Great twist fairytale twist and just cute. Loved the dramatic ending.

"Dance With Me" by Tish Thawer
Was unfamiliar with the original fairytale, so this whole story was a complete surprise. Overall just a strange story that ends with a good ending.

"Awakened" by Kristen Strassel-
Sultry, Sexy and Hot! Vampire rockers finally succumbing to their lust, yep soooo not the classic sleeping beauty but great nonetheless.

"Priceless" by Sarah J. Pepper-
Wow sooo basically no Prince Charming or Mr. Right but definitely a Mr. Dangerous & Delicious for the female lead. The couples flirtation is tension filled, hot and bothered to the max!

"The Snow Queen" by Shannon Morton-
C-R-A-Z-Y!! Mind messing short story about a girl who breaks boys of their emotions. Waaaay twisted.

"Caged" by L.P. Dover-
For a short story it felt full of emotion and action. Great modern twist on Rapunzel, could see this made into a full novel.

"Puss In Boots" by Brynn Myers-
Super cute. Loved the story and unlikely couple made the strongest because of who they really are on the inside, not external facades.

"Rell" by Amy Daws-
Modern version of Cinderella. This time Rella has a dream to be a swimsuit fashion designer. Nice twist there.

"Casting Crowns and Other Curious Things" by Elizabeth Montgomery-
Alice is the absolute heroine of this tale! No damsel in distress found in this tale.

"Hansel & Gretel" by Cameo Renae-
If you've read the After Light Saga series this story is a great snippet into that world, but fairy tale style. I kinda hope we get to see Greta in the next books somehow cause she's just as awesome as Abigail Park.

"Real Boy" by Kellie Sheridan-
Oh creepy! iRobot meets bicentennial man Pinocchio story. Bottom line never trust a robot man!! It's clear just stick to the real deal for a true HEA.

"Jaclyn and the Beanstalk" by M. Clarke-
Heroine sets out to save her mom and ends up becoming Buffy the Vampire Slayer! I'd totally read a book spun off from this short story. Really who needs Jack anyways?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection Worth It's Weight in Spun Gold 2 October 2015
By Danielle A Cup and A Book - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
What a fantastic collection of creatively rewritten tales. I absolutely recommend this collection to EVERYONE.

There are a few of these stories that struck a chord with me, and I want to give them specific shout outs.

Uncloaked, A Reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood by Wendy Owens
- This is a whole new spin on LRRH and I adored how the author was able to pull a well-known tale and pull it into one of my favorite worlds - Faery.

Blayze & Ash, A retelling of Beauty an the Beast by Jessica Sorenson
- this is no Disney movie people. It is emotional, raw, sad, and (other than a little magic) easy to relate to.

Priceless, The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin by Sarah J. Pepper
-Ok, I'm going to be honest, I didn't make great notes for this one, but the fact that my note attached to the end was "Oh hell yes!", you have to understand I loooooooved it I did. I just kept bad notes.

The Snow Queen Retold by Shannon Morton
-Holy F!@#. This one seriously screwed with me and I LOVED IT!

~~~ "You are slaves to the feelings evoked by words on a page." ~~~

OMG!! I AM!! How do you know that?! And that was just the prologue. The twisted wickedness evoked a lot for me, and the note at the end in my kindle? "Holy S@#$!" Yeah, that says it all.

Casting Crowns and Other Curious Things A retelling of Alice in Wonderland by Elizabeth Montgomery
- Alice in Wonderland has ALWAYS confused the crap outta me, I have never read the book and barely paid attention to the Disney version. So, I didn't expect much from this story. I was pleasantly surprised with my emotional bounty. My favorite quote:

"Tyden, well, he is my happiness. His is the smile on my face each morning. The reason I know what it feels like to be alive."

Now, if i didn't pick out a story, it doesn't mean I didn't like it. I enjoyed the ENTIRE collection. I will say, this needs to be read in spurts. I became overwhelmed trying to read it straight through, I mean, crap, it's FOURTEEN stories! You certainly get your money's worth with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing what talent, creativity and imagination can do... 2 October 2015
By KarenM of My Bookbag - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an incredible book. It is thoroughly enjoyable to read, and there are plenty of different characters to love, or hate. There is an impressive amount of talent in the fourteen authors who wrote these stories. Each gives new life to old (and sometimes even older) fairy tales. The voices of their characters are distinct, yet each story feels like it belongs with the whole. Some authors write way outside the box, while some give the classics a face lift and a modern twist. Most of the stories fall somewhere between.

These twisted fairy tales are absolutely amazing. They are creative, imaginative and engaging. Some stories resonate better than others, but the book is a good read in its entirety.

How the overall rating of this anthology, by this blog, is done:

1. add together the ratings from the individual story reviews
2, divide that number by 14
3. round the rating to the closest number of stars (amazon doesn’t do partial stars)
4. include the actual rating (including partial stars) in this review.

My Bookbag rates Fairy Tale Confessions 4.71 stars … therefore a 5 star review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Anthology 7 October 2015
By Moxxley @Platypire Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fairy Tale Confessions is the retelling of fourteen classic fairy tales. All of these stories were amazing. I seriously could not put down my iPad because I wanted to finish these stories. Each story made their specific fairy tale their own with a modern take on it and the authors did not disappoint. Each author made their own story unique and stand out. What I liked the best was the strong female characters. More stories need strong female characters.

I truly enjoyed them all. I will confess that this anthology introduced me to authors that I did not know about, I will definitely be checking out their works and their social media pages. I thought that each story flowed very nicely. My only complaint with the book is I wanted more. I’m greedy when it comes to stories in an anthology.

I seriously cannot wait to re-read these amazing stories. I will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. I give this anthology 5/5 Platypires.
