    One thought on “Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem”

    1. What I usually look for in a fairy tale retelling are signs of actual, you know, retelling I don t want some dressed up version of a Disney movie In this book with it s long ass Harry Potter esqe title , I really wanted Snow White to be someone who was not simply kind because that s the way the story goes, not simply beautiful just because that s the way the story goes I wanted to see history, I wanted to see a human being coping to survive extreme circumstances, whose personality whether defian [...]

    2. This and my other reviews can be found at amethystbookwyrm Thanks to Netgalley and Cedar Fort for giving me this book to review.All Kat has ever known is working on her uncle s orchard with Jeremy, but when her uncle s behaviour changes and Jeremy has left to sort things out in his life, she runs away to live with seven dwarfs However, what she does not realise is that she is the Princess of Mayhem and a man who is stuck in a mirror by her evil mother Queen Radiance, has been watching her all he [...]

    3. This book is an enchanting rework of a classic tale Narrated by Jasper, the unwilling servant of Queen Radiance, the Wicked Queen This wonderful tale follows Princess Kat from her birth and forced exile, to her happily ever after While the tone and spirit of this work remain true to the original work, Ms Lemon manages to bring a darkness to her characters that the classic lacks This is most apparent in the person of Queen Radiance, whose hatred for the young princess is so great that she attempt [...]

    4. I really liked this new rendition of the Snow White fairytale I liked how it was told from the viewpoint of the mirror There were some really great twists that I didn t see coming Looking forward to reading other books by this author.

    5. What I loved about this book was the untraditional perspective on a classical tale All the characters were cleverly intertwined making it easy to connect to them I was intrigued and entertained not wanting to put it down I loved the ending by far one of my favorite retellings

    6. I love retellings of fairy tales but this one was not quite there Maybe a person who hasn t read quite so many refellings would enjoy it though.

    7. This one I really enjoyed, but I felt the end was VERY rushed A different twist to the story we all know.

    8. I really loved Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem I loved the storyline and this story is kind of like Snow White, but it isn t It is interesting because the story is kind of twisted So it s not like the original story.Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem is about Katiyana She is the princess of Mayhem and the queen wants her gone She tried to drown her, but the king stopped her and he ran away with the princess and took her to her uncle s apple orchard Katiyana spent most her life on the apple o [...]

    9. I read this book for my book club It was a clever retelling of the classic Snow White, just a little predictable The parts I enjoyed most were the portrayals of the dwarves and the magic mirror they were very unique The other characters were about what you would expect.

    10. Originally published at Nose in a Book.Oh, that summary, it does nothing for this awesome re telling of Snow White I mean, yes, it is a re telling, but the introduction of new characters was fun, plus the story is narrated by the Magic Mirror How cool is that I personally would classify this as middle grade, not YA, because the storytelling is very simple in style, and the Mirror does a lot of telling instead of showing However, when you kind of know how the story is going to end, does showing r [...]

    11. Originally reviewed at Witchmag s BoekenplankThis was one heck off a story fairy tale Is it just me, or are there a lot of these old fairy tale retellings lately Not that I mind, I always loved my bed time stories It s just that some aren t as enjoyable as the original one If you write about a specific fairy tale, please let it show in the story Sorry, just read a book I wasn t that happy with Won t tell names though Anyways, that last ranting wasn t meant for this book, oh no Here it was clear [...]

    12. I am a sucker for fairytale retellings, stories like The Goose Girl, Throne of Glass and East, just to name a few Maybe I m still young at heart hopefully , but reading about fairytales always makes me happier Because you know they end happily, and sometimes that s just what I need to read about Happy stories.SWatQoM wowzer, what a long title is narrated from the point of view of the magic mirror A very good spin on the actual fairytale, so I m very happy with that At first, I thought it d be a [...]

    13. Kat Whyte doesn t know why her uncle keeps her hidden away at the orchard, never allowing her to leave, for no other reason other than he deemed it wasn t safe She always minded his wishes, but until he went blind and hired Jeremy to help her keep the orchard going, no one ever knew she lived through an attack at infancy Besides a magical mirror, that is.Now in her teens, Kat s uncle has become aggressive and unpleasant, and at Jeremy s beseechment, she leaves with what money he can gather, prof [...]

    14. In SNOW WHYTE AND THE QUEEN OF MAYHEM, we jump into the action on page one, immediately discovering that the queen hates her baby daughter so much that she repeatedly attempts to kill her Desperate to save his daughter, King Fredrick flees He leaves baby Katiyana a name that means Snow in the kingdom of Mayhem with his Uncle Barney for safekeeping, than takes off again, where he is met with a vicious, untimely demise Fredrick only ever called Katiyana Kat around Barney, so Barney never knew her [...]

    15. In this retelling of Snow White, we get the story from an unusual source the magic mirror Not long after Princess Katiyana is born, her mother, the queen, does everything in her power to cause her death The king flees the kingdom with Katiyana, placing her into the safety of an uncle, before dying himself Katiyana grows up with no idea she is a princess, or that the queen still seeks her and wishes for her death.The fact that in this story the evil queen in not Katiyana s stepmother, but her act [...]

    16. I love reading fairytale retellings so of course I jumped at the chance to review Lemon s take on Snow White In this spin the evil queen is actually Kat s Snow White mother, not the step mother and she still of course wants her dead but in this retelling she tries to kill her while she is still just a baby The king runs off with her and takes her to the safety of Uncle Barney who lives in an apple orchard in the next kingdom over The queen thought her to be dead since she did send an executioner [...]

    17. One thing that I hate than ANYTHING is a misleading synopsis It s a good thing that I didn t read this one before I read the book, because it is totally misleading Katiyana is the Princess of Mayhem, but she has grown up in hiding at her Great Uncle Barney s apple orchard, with no knowledge of her identity, or the fact that her Mother tried to have her killed before her Father saved her and died in the process But Barney went blind when Kat became a teenager and with that blindness came anger, [...]

    18. My reaction in one gif Full review Before I state, to be clear, this is not a BAD book I would by no means dissuade anyone from reading it if they wanted to But if someone were to come to my ask, looking for a fairy tale retelling, there are many others I would suggest before even thinking of this one.The set up holds some promise the evil queen gives birth to a daughter and when her husband catches her trying to kill the baby, he takes the princess to his uncle s for him to raise, and soon afte [...]

    19. 5 STARSMelissa Lemon took one of my favorite story and gave it a fresh new look that did not disappoint It had many of the same points but they were a little different It is a clean read.Queen Radiance and King Fredrick had a daughter King Fredrick loved his daughter butQueen did not She even tried to drown her but King rescued her Queen Radiance was the power in her kingdom Her husband could not stop any of her mean plans A servant new that either the King or thier daughter would be killed the [...]

    20. 3.5 stars depending on the part of the book A creative twist of the fairy tale classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Told from the view of the Magic Mirror literally a man trapped in a magically mirror by the evil Queen Radiance we follow Kat Katiyana meaning snow from her birth, to the forced exile, to meeting the dwarfs, and all the way to her happily ever after As an infant she was carried away to live with her Uncle Barney on an apple orchard, not knowing who she truly is, the Princess of [...]

    21. Whenever I read a retelling of a famous fairytale, I expect certain things to be in order I want to be able to recall some a lot of elements from the original tale, I want the main character to stand out and be special and I want the story to be its own, but still make sense as a retelling Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem did not live up to my expectations The story is told from the POV of the Mirror which does not work AT ALL It means that the story is retold instead of being told, because th [...]

    22. Melissa Lemon s Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem is a different, yet cleverly written take on the Snow White story Perhaps the most noticeable difference is that the Queen is Katiyana s Snow White birth mother We are all familiar with the Queen s feelings towards Snow White, but to have that same feeling when the Queen is the mother, totally changes the mood to a very dark and very sinister like tale Another facet that makes the story worthwhile is having a perspective of the trapped man in th [...]

    23. Thanks to NetGalley and Cedar Fort for my copy of Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem I read Melissa Lemon s Cinder and Ella and was not fully in love with it So I began this book with a little bit of trepidation I should never have worried Snow Whyte was fantastic I loved it I love fairy tale retellings to begin with, but this one was great In fact, I kept wishing that Snow White and the Henchman movie would have used this book as it s script instead I loved that Melissa Lemon narrarates this bo [...]

    24. Kat Whyte has lived what seems to her a fairly normal life She s lived with her Uncle Barney on his apple orchard He seems to love her and he s cared for her as well as he could She s learned to care for his animals and also the orchard One thing Kat has never done is leave the orchard, she s always wanted to but her uncle has told her time and time again that it s dangerous for her to leave, and she must never go to the market But one morning, Barney wakes up and he can no longer see He goes to [...]

    25. Spoilers contained in this review I thought that this book was not very well written, unfortunately I found it to be shallow I love the books I read to have a deeper meaning, and other than people aren t always what they seem it missed the mark for me The author was going for an exciting, page turner, and I ll admit, it was a page turner, but for entirely different reasons I was curious of how it could end, but not excited about it First off, the cover promised a tale filled with romance About f [...]
