Glass Slippers Ever After and Me by Julie Wright, Book Review
Can the fairy tale bring Charlotte the happiness she’s looking for, or was he always there to begin with?
A modern, reimagined Cinderella story.
When aspiring author Charlotte Kingsley finally gets published, she thinks all her dreams have come true. But the trouble begins when her publicity firm reinvents her quirky online presence into a perfectly curated dream life. Gone are the days of sweatpant posts and ice cream binges with her best friend, Anders, replaced instead with beautiful clothes, orchestrated selfies, and no boyfriend. Only, that carefully curated fairy tale life is ruining her self-esteem and making her feel like a fraud.
When a bestselling author takes Charlotte under her wing—almost like a fairy godmother—she helps Charlotte see the beautiful person she already is and the worth of being authentic. But is it too late to save her relationship with Anders? The clock is quickly ticking towards midnight, and Charlotte must decide between her fairy tale life and the man she loves, before he's gone forever.
I absolutely loved Charlotte's story and let me tell you why! Charlotte is completely relatable to every woman out there. She is normal, down-to-earth and she just wants her dreams to come true. What woman in the world doesn't want that? She has a job that is just that... a job. She wants to become a published author so badly and her best friend Anders has been there and continues to be there the entire journey. But oh the twists and turns Charlotte's life begins to take! And she is trying to be a good friend and keep up with this new image the publishing company wants her to portray. Somewhere along the way she seems to lose sight of who she is and what is important. I literally could not put this book down you guys! I had the painful, burning eyes I was so tired, but I HAD to finish Charlotte's story! Would she have her happily ever after? Or was what she thought would make her happy all along, not what really would bring her happiness? Buckle up because this is one book that will take you on a fun and emotional ride you will not forget! I cannot wait to see what amazing story Wright comes up with next!
