I am currently planning my wedding, which means I’m trying not to spend excessive amounts of money on books...You can probably guess how well that’s working out. I have been relying heavily on a free e-book email list to get me through this. Unfortunately, those free e-books are usually part of a series with the potential for me to get hooked and then have to spend money to discover what happens next. Thankfully, the entire Twilight Court series, which Fairy Struck initiates, is available through my Kindle Unlimited subscription!
I came across this Cinderella retelling as an ad on BookBub, one of the lists I get emailed to me periodically. I clicked on it because I wanted a closer look at the cover art. I bought it because of the description. I read the whole series, because I had to find out what happens next. To explain The Memory Thief, I have to set the stage a bit...
We figured that fairy tales were a pretty good fit for Halloween, what with magical creatures of all sorts and occasionally dark settings.
If you read my review of Hypnos, you know that I can be picky about adult urban fantasy books. There are concepts that I have no interest in exploring and there are a lot of plotlines that I consider overdone and don’t really want to read over and over. As a result, I rarely go looking for urban fantasy novels. Instead, I wait to find them in the wild.
Bethany: So...I do this thing where I wander around bookstores and pick up all of the books and then buy WAYYYY too many of the ones that I like. That’s how I came across Cinder, the first book in the Lunar Chronicles.
