Snow White and Rose Red by Lilly Fang, Book Review
Blurb from the book:
Welcome to the Festival of Roses, a world full of magic and romance. Every year during the festival each boy leaves a flower at the door of the girl he believes is the "fairest of them all." Naturally, Snow White gets dozens of flowers, while her younger sister Rose Red is ignored. This year, though, things are different. For the first time, Rose Red has a mysterious admirer, and this year she isn't the only one jealous of her sister's beauty. But even though it’s a time of celebration, when girls begin disappearing, the festival turns deadly. With mysterious strangers arriving every day, an ominous marriage proposal, and magic and danger everywhere, Snow White and Rose Red will need to work together to survive the festival and solve the mystery.
I love fairy tale re-tellings so when I found this on Amazon for free, I jumped on it! Snow White and Rose Red is a quick and easy red. The book is well-written and the plot moved along quickly enough that I stayed interested. It was definitely worth the time it took to read, I just would have liked a little bit more information at certain points. Other than that the story is engaging and I would read another book by this author. I truly hope she writes another book to continue the story! If you like fairy tales you will definitely like Snow White and Rose Red. Four stars!
You can pick up Snow White and Rose Red via Amazon.
