    1. Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is a short book, so my review isn't going to be that long too. I liked it, I wasn't wow-ed, but the story wasn't bad either, just solid. If you like retellings you should read this book, you can finish it within 2 hours and read a decent, magical story while doing it 😊A longer review can be found at Bite Into BooksThis is a retelling with a magical touch that has you figure out for yourself wh [...]


    2. Sixteen year old Megan wants to be a doctor. When she volunteers at a residential home she is tasked with listening to Lady, an ancient woman whose mind seems to be fractured, telling disjointed fragments of a story about a duke who never aged, a duke cursed to have his life tied to the fate of the roses in his garden.Is the Duke real, or a figment of Lady's misty imagination? Will the magic mirror reveal the truth? As the mystery unravels, Megan learns a hidden family secret that could change h [...]


    3. This is a story about a refreshingly sensible young person, Megan, who wants to be a doctor. She gets work experience at a nursing home and is assigned to talk with one of the old people. First it gets a star for setting the book between a nursing home and Megan's family life. A nice constrast. A second star for an interesting mystery about 'The Duke' a figure that it is hinted at is the beast from beauty in the beast. I have to give a third star, for retelling the beauty and the beast in a cont [...]


    4. *Be sure to check out my blog post for this book!*3 1/2 Roses*Lovely ReTellingReTellings are often clever and creative, and can be some of the best stories. Taking a well-known story and painting it in a new light is sometimes the best way to freshen up a classic, and give it new life. Beauty and the Beast is one of the most famous fairy-tales, and with the live-action film release this year, interest in this story seems renewed. What could be a better time for a retelling?In this story, Megan i [...]


    5. Shattered Roses is a tale I struggled to rate, finally settling on 3.5 stars. The reason for my dilemma will soon become clear. First off, I loved the premise. I thought Parfitt brought an interesting take on the classic story and, aside from a few minor typos and grammar slips, I liked her prose. However, the book didn't quite work for me because I felt as if we didn't get the full story. Both Megan's tale and Lady's, on their own, would have been worthy of an expanded word count to explore the [...]


    6. I love fairytale retellings so when I received this review request I was incredibly happy. I have read several retellings and really enjoyed most of them. This one had my hoped pretty high!While I wouldn't say that this one is my favorite, it did turn out to be pretty good. It is a short book so it didn't take long to finish at all. The fun factor doesn't hurt either so that makes it a quicker read.There is an unexpected plot twist towards the end which makes it an even more interesting read. Th [...]


    7. A nuanced, beautiful retelling of the classic fairytale through the eyes of a teenager going through a fundamental shift in her life. The Beauty character is unexpectedly quirky, the Beast as multi-layered and complex as you would imagine, but best of all is Megan's story and how she changes through the events. It's a delight, and if anything it felt way too short!
