I thought this book was good, and I guess you could tell by the new feature "Time took to read". I think this is a good book, and liked the new retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I never really was that found of this particular fairytale, but liked this rendition of it. I mainly read this book because I liked the last book by her (Beastly) and always like to see different renditions of the same story. Now that I have read two of her books, I can now say that I really do like this author, and will try to find another of her books to read. All in all I liked this book also, and I recommend it.


(these are two different description and I liked them both, so I thought I would list both of them.)

"What is that?" She points to the numbers on teh shirt.
"The Year. Old Navy puts the year on all their flag T-shirts. It's sort of a racket, I guess-you have to buy a new one every year."
"That... is .... the.... year? She looks sort of sick. Her face is suddenly almost the same color green as her eyes. She begins to shake. "Oh my... oh, no." She crumples back onto the floor, as she was when I first saw her. "It cannot be true. It cannot."
I kneel beside her. "What's the matter now? I thought you were fine."
She looks at me, then starts screaming. "Fine? Fine? I have been asleep nearly three hundred years!"

(here is the second. I thought this one funny.)

Talia fell under a spell....
Jack broke the curse.

I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic.....

I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.

I awakened in the same place but in another time- to a stranger's soft kiss.

I couldn't help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn't know this would happen.

Now I am in dire trouble becuase my father, the iking says I have brought ruin upon out country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!

Now I'm stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of her jewls... The good news: My parents will freak!
