Review: Finding Cinderella


Finding Cinderella
Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I thought the book was charming. Daniel's strong feelings for Six were adorable, buuuuuuuut the book would have been 20% cooler without all the cussing. I really did not like the swearing. It was distracting, and completely unnecessary.
Aside from that, there were a couple of times I caught the narrative head hopping, which is also jarring. So there were a few technical flaws that made the book a less than stellar read for me.
I enjoyed it, however, and would recommend it. It made me curious about Holder's story.

BLOG TOUR! Featuring KAREN HOOVER'S Newtimber: Fractured







Book title: Newtimber: Fractured
Author: Karen E. Hoover
Release Date: June 21st
Tour Dates: July 15th - August 15th
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Trifecta Books
Tour Host: Silverbow Promotions 

Book Synopsis: 

There was absolutely no way a black dragon hovered outside of Newtimber. Sianna rubbed her eyes, but the dragon was still there, clutching a round object that looked like a spotted egg. And then the egg fell, hitting the ground like an atomic bomb, sending out waves of a slow-moving fog that distorted everything it touched.

The citizens of Newtimber change. The old man down the street stretches into a screaming tree. Sianna’s skateboarding friend, Matt, transforms into a giant green dragon. Pegasus. Sirens. Griffins. Vampires. Zombies. Creatures from the myths of every culture come to life through the people.
Even Sianna changes, her skin becoming stone hard, and she gains the ability to travel from the human realm into the dimension of the fae, using it to free her father from prison and enlist his aid in battling the evil bent on taking over the world.

One person to heal a family, a town, and save the world. It seems an impossible task, but with the help of her new friends, it could happen.

Right?

~ About the author ~ 

Karen E. Hoover has loved the written word for as long as
she can remember. Her favorite memory of her dad is the time he spent with
Karen on his lap, telling her stories for hours on end. Her dad promised he
would have Karen reading on her own by the time she was four years old … and he
very nearly did. Karen took the gift of words her dad gave her and ran with it.
Since then, she’s written two novels and reams of poetry. Her head is fairly
popping with ideas, so she plans to write until she’s ninety-four or maybe even
a hundred and four.

Inspiration is found everywhere, but Karen’s heart is fueled
by her husband and two sons, the Rocky Mountains, her chronic addiction to pens
and paper, and the smell of her laser printer in the morning.

KATHLEEN MARENTES
What am I working on?

I just released book two in my series, The Shadows Breathe Series. So right now, I'm working on book three, which will hopefully be released early next year. This will be the last book in the series for now, as I want to work on other projects afterwards.

How does my work differ from others in its genre?

I think my series is just different because it's a young adult story about a horse trainer with no real super powers set in present day. Definitely different from the stories dominating the YA world right now. And with characters that anyone can relate to, it's a story that anyone can enjoy, whether from the horse world or not.

Why do I write what I do?

I write what makes me happy!

How does my writing process work?


I start out by listening to a lot of music to get ideas. I watch the book in my head like a movie, and music helps set the mood. Once the mood is established, I can write an outline. The outline is flexible, and generally changes drastically by the time the book is written, but it gives me a map to follow as I go. With four kids, I don't have a lot of time to write, and it can get frustrating! But they do sleep (me, not so much!).

ANN HUNTER
What am I working on?
I'm in the editing stages of Fallen, my fractured retelling of The Frog Prince. After that I'll be co-writing a highly imaginative new fantasy novel with a 6-year-old titled In The Mean While, and then doing a retelling of Chicken Little (A Piece of Sky)

How does my work differ from others in its genre?
I add Celtic elements to my stories, and set them in alternate Ireland. I like to think I have a unique sense of humor when its required (nobody will expect a chicken to have her own POV in Fallen!)

Why do I write what I do?
Initially it started as a way to discover my Irish roots and learn about Irish mythology, but it's branched into so much more. I used to be a pretty prolific writer, churning out 20 novels in 4 years. I got burnt out and so I've been using these Celtic fractured fairy tales as a way to get my mojo back and shake off the cobwebs.

How does my writing process work?
I take care of my kids all day, yearning to write. They go to the bed and I spend the next 2 hours procrastinating writing. Somehow I manage to get out 1000-2000 words per evening anyway. Then the book goes off to content editors, I fix the problems, and send it off to my head editor. Another 2 edits from there and we have a publishable manuscript (about 5-6 thorough edits)
