But then, that was it, in a way. As in our main character is not an airhead who sings and has animal buddies and makes the perfect guy out of clothing actually someone with personality! Aurore knew that her only chance was to run away to La Foret, the forbidden forest and hopefully take the magic with her.


Also, Maleficent has been renamed Jane and by the way I didn’t really like how the narrator used brackets to tell us super obvious parts of the story.

First off, I was not expecting Aurore and Oswald to end up together. That took me by surprise.

Beauty Sleep

I liked the Introduction, but Cmeron can’t really say that I had any favorite moments other than that, or favorite characters. It seems almost childish, which of course is to be expected in any kind of fairy tale.

Her voice is very warm but not overdone, which is an issue I have with a lot of teen fiction – it just feels like too much at some points. Cursed at birth, Aurore is fated to prick her finger at the age of sixteen and sleep for one hundred years — until a prince awakens her with a kiss.

An aleep tale of Aurore and the spells that fight within her. It was pretty predictible from the very beginning it was quite clear that Aurore will be with Oswald from the ball scene Her parents were determined to protect her and so limited her activities to those that did not involve any sharp, pointed objects.


Did he have to be her cousin? So she ventures off into the Forbidden Forest to find answers. The review of this Book prepared by Debbie.

She does everything from archery to sheering sheep to embroidery. This one has to be the most romantic of the fairy tales beaauty enough. It was SO amazingly good! I read it aloud to my husband. And because of his promise to wait for her he’s even still alive!

Nov 21, Sonja rated it really cameton it Recommends it for: I read the book all in one read and had nightmares that night.

Ironheart is on my list of fictional boyfriends.

It was unexpectedly interesting and surprising. Art meets life, I guess. This was an absolutely charming retelling of Sleeping Beauty that should delight young adult readers and adults everywhere. There aren’t evil witches or fairy godmothers or anything like that.

I swear, there are so many plot holes this book would sink a ship. I suppose in the olden times that was considered okay, but if the book is going to appeal to a modern audience it must also appeal to our distaste of incest.
