“Although this is a YA book, I enjoyed the fact that Showalter doesn’t change her writing style very much. It’s eloquent and quite complex, which actually makes me really happy. ”
~ Under the Covers

THE GLASS QUEEN is the second installment in Gena Showalter’s The Forest of Good and Evil. If you don’t know already, this entire series is based on fairy tales, so I was quite interested to see how this new book would pan out.

As you can expect with this title, it’s all about Cinderella. I feel like this fairy tale is quite popular amongst Young Adult Fantasy readers, so it’s no surprise to see Showalter putting her own twist on things. I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series. It reminded me a lot of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series, which is one of my all-time favorite YA series. So if you enjoyed that series, I have no doubt that you’ll enjoy this one too.

Although this is a YA book, I enjoyed the fact that Showalter doesn’t change her writing style very much. It’s eloquent and quite complex, which actually makes me really happy. Sometimes, I find that her writing can be a little choppy, but this one worked for me. I didn’t love all points of this plot, however. But of course, you can’t love everything. All in all, I think it was something fun and different. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

I wonder if they have to be read in order since there are some fairy tales I don’t like, even in a retelling.

I haven’t noticed this series for some reason and I like that this version of Cinderella compares to Lunar Chronicles. I loved those, too. I’ll have to give these a go.
