EnchantedGoodreads Synopsis:     It isn't easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past - and hers?
My Thoughts:    

-    A lot of Fairy Tales make an appearance in this book.  The ones that are prominent are The Princess and the Frog, Cinderella, and Jack and the Beanstalk.   Crazy Awesome!

-    I loved all the characters.  Sunday is a really sweet and lovely character.  I really enjoyed Saturday.  She is a girl after my own heart.  Erik, Velius, and Trix are great sub characters that bring a lot of humor and loyalty to the story.

-    There is a bit of a mystery in the book.  I kept trying to piece together a lot of things to get the whole picture.  No worries though, all was revealed in the end.  

-    As far as Fairy Tale Re-tellings go, this one has more depth and complication to it.  It was so much more than just girl meets boy, they fall in love, overcome some evil person, and then live happily ever after.  While all those elements are there, there is A LOT more going on.  

-    I really loved this book, and I recommend to anyone who loves a good Fairy Tale.  


  1. OOOO...another sounds awesome good read for me to try. And I definitely love fairy tales!
