Happy Friday Everyone!
We have made it through another week, and it will be the weekend soon enough! I hope to relax this weekend since I don’t have to work but we shall see! To finish the week of reviews off, I wanted to review another retelling of another classic. A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn, is a beautiful retelling of the classic Sleeping Beauty.
The description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“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 because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our 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 jewels…The good news: My parents will freak!
Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who turns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all—even time?”
I don’t want to say too much about this book beyond the description, because I don’t want to give anything away. But the way Alex brings the reader into this new story of Sleeping Beauty and puts a new spin on it without taking anything away from the classic, is the best of both worlds. The second I picked up this book, I couldn’t put it down until I knew how it ended. The characters in this book are so relatable that you will form an instant connection with them. You will laugh, cry, and be rooting for a happily ever after. What would you do if you wound up with a spoiled Princess, who wasn’t from your time? Come find out how Jack deals with the truth of who Talia truly is and how this all ends. Will it be happily ever after or will Sleeping Beauty have to live without her Prince?
Go on a trip through time where one kiss can make a huge difference readers!
