Snow White has a stepmother who hates her, so Snow tries to stay away from home as much as possible, with a band of 7 jazz musicians. But it wasn’t brilliant or overtly Rapunzel-esque -just good. The character of Bella is irritating, the attempts to put Snow White in a s setting stretch the boundaries of plausibility to breaking point seven men in one band? One of the best books I’ve read for a long time, it was magical and just so great!. Of all the stories, this one’s the best by far.

Is Bella’s stepmother really as wicked as she believes? A modern version of Sleeping Beauty, this is a haunting tale of treachery and betrayal. A few were likable Simon others were not Bella.

A modern version of Sleeping Beauty, this is a haunting tale of treachery and betrayal. This truly is one of my favourite books.

Happy Ever After : Adele Geras :

This one is definitely the weakest in the trilogy. I thought I would like these 3 books but they were alright. Published August 4th by Definitions Young Adult.

Propoer magic, lovely retelling of the classic fairytales Read full review. To me, this book is simply perfection. Brilliant, rewritten fairy tales, took me months to read this and I don’t know why because I very much enjoyed it. Her husband was the Marxist academic Norman Geras and their daughter Sophie Hannah is also a novelist and poet. It has all the ingredients of a perfect Sleeping Beauty retelling: I have never heard anyone say anything about this book, so I guess I am kinda glad I read it.


I thought it would be your typical lallalala thing but it actually surprised me. I really enjoyed this book especially the first two stories about Megan and Alice. Three stories in one book, all based on re-written fairy tales.

If you love Fairytales and fairytale retellings, you will probably love this book. If you love Fairytales and fairytale retellings, you will probably love this book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This aftdr is a combination of three stories, one from Megan, one from Alice and one from Bella. Could have been a lot darker, but still does deal with serious issues like rape. Pictures of the Night: Happy ever after is a compilation of 3 fairytales, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, but told in a modern kind of way the story is placed in the fifties.

The words and language were perfect, it was smooth and turbulent at the same time. It is set in the fifties and tells three separate, yet connected, stories revolving around three best friends finishing their A levels at a remote girls’ agter school.


Sleeping Beauty has the most t I have mixed feelings about this book. I’ve definitely outgrown this one. Very good book i look forward to your next.

I think I’m going to miss these girls! I kept flicking between pages to see if I’d missed anything. Aug 04, Stephanie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: While i did find this book quite slow to get through which hzppy put down to me not empathising with the characters it has definitely not put me off retellings and i can’t wait to get my hands on another one.

Refresh and try again.

The book is based on three fairytales, but with a twist so that we once again can experience some of the best princess fairytales. The three different points of view worked for me, they all had a different voice and a different story, a different character.

It’s a trilogy of books that are all written in their own individual style. Her novels for adults include: Watching the Roses had more substance, but I think that was only due to one harrowing event that took place at the very, very end. She has also won prizes for her poetry and was a joint winner of the Smith Doorstop Poetry Pamphlet Award, offered by the publisher of that name. They had a lovely fairytale feel to them.

Three years later and having done my time at a real all-girls high school, the entire Egerton Hall Trilogy only just about merits a two star for me.
