I’ve been listening to Entwined all weekend. This is the second time I’ve read this book and I have to admit I really love it. It has it’s slow points but over all it fits happily in my beloved fairy tale turned full novel genre.
Basically it’s the retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses told from the oldest sister Azalea. The time period seems to be Victorian although they never really say. All the girls are named after flowers in alphabetical order, which makes it a little easier to keep track of who is who, the gentlemen who try to sort out the riddle are entertaining, the king has some good character development, the princesses are adorable and each has her own personality.
A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.
Mostly for the set of Tamora Pierce books

When you try to talk about the book with other people and realize you can’t say the main character’s name
