The Step-Spinsters by Madina Papadopoulos
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away…
...(actually, in Medieval France, to be exact) there lived Cinderella's stepsisters, Fredegonde the tall and Javotte the small. They wake up the morning after the legendary ball to learn that they each still have a chance to be the bride—all they have to do is make their feet fit into that tricky slipper. Alas, these two damsels under stress never quite seem to fit in anywhere. But that doesn’t stop them from wishing and hoping as they set upon a quest for grooms and grandeur of their own.
If you like fairytale retellings, you will probably enjoy this book. Well, if you like silly retellings, you will probably like this book. It is definitely not your average Cinderella book, that is for sure! You know, Cinderella, the one you are usually rooting for and loving? Well, that isn't the case in this book! Hahaha!
I actually found Cinderella to be so annoying! I liked the stepsisters much more! Reading a book that flips the fairytale world upside down is so much fun. And with this book being less than 200 pages, it makes it a fun and quick read.
I am so glad it was sent to me! Pick it up! You'll be glad you did!
*Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
