Quick–what are you reading right now? (Other than this question on this website, of course.) Would you recommend it? What’s it about?
At the moment, I am at the beginnings of Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George.
What’s it about? Simply a fairy tale retelling of “The 12 Dancing Princesses”.
So do I recommend it? If you’re into fairy tales retellings. ABSOLUTELY. if you’re not, try it as a spice, or salt on your readings. It doesn't hurt to try. In fact, it started fast and you would sink in as fast as quicksand. So, if you wish to read it, make sure you are not to busy, cause it would annoy you to put this book down.
As the crown princess, Rose is never without a dance partner. She and her eleven sisters are treated to beautiful gowns, slippers, and dances at party after party in their father's palace. But their evenings do not end when the guests return home. Instead, Rose and her sisters must travel deep into the earth to the wicked King Under Stone's palace. There, the girls are cursed to dance each night, even when they grow exhausted or ill.
Many princes have tried-and failed-to break the spell. But then Rose meets Galen, a young soldier-turned-gardener with an eye for adventure. Together they begin to unravel the mystery. To banish the curse, they'll need an invisibility cloak, enchanted silver knitting needles, and, of course, true love.
