    4. A DREAM NOT IMAGINED BY SHANTELLE MARY HANNUTHE GOOD,So, okay I absolutely loved this story It wasn t quite like the normal, run of the mill Cinderella story which I loved ever so much I feel like dressing in a flowing, blue dress and talk in an accent over a cup of tea Because I just imagined Ellie talking in a British accent shrugs I was half way through this book and happily floating along But then a plot twist came and threw me beneath the surface It only let me up for a breath of air till t [...]

    5. A cute retelling of Cinderella I loved the themes of trusting God and His plans for our lives The romance developed a little too quickly, in my opinion, but overall, I really enjoyed this fun and clean story Not to mention, some great twists that made for a unique angle to a well known story.

    6. I thought this was such a sweet, innocent story For a Cinderella retelling, there were a couple of surprising plot twists which I thoroughly enjoyed In a way, it kept me guessing, but at the same time, I could still figure out what would LIKELY happen There was a sense of mystery with Lady Abbington s actions and I did figure out what that mystery was a little bit before it was spilled All in all, I really enjoyed this book It wasn t overly romantic In fact, I don t even think they kissed the ma [...]

    8. A Dream not ImaginedTruly one of the best Cinderella retelling I ve read My sister wrote this book, so I got to be one of the two first people to read it, but I read it again and loved it again I also got to be sort of a beta reader It is just amazing The story is about Ellie Abbington, a maid in the Abbington house hold Who s dream is for a better life, but she ends up getting some things she would never imagine A Dream Not Imagined, is a non magical fairy tale retelling of Cinderella The book [...]

    11. I ve read a lot of Cinderella retellings this year I hadn t been expecting to be able to read this one, but after helping with some formatting, I volunteered to read it as a review copy I had heard nothing but good about it, so I had somewhat high expectations At first, I thought maybe they had been misplaced It seemed just like any other typical Cinderella story And then Things go terribly wrong at the ball Ellie Abbington s dreams are shattered But she is told that God is in control, and His w [...]

    12. I absolutely love fairytale retellings, so I jumped on the chance to read this one A Dream Not Imagined is a lovely retelling that at first feels very like the classic Cinderella and yet Those twists My goodness, I did not see them coming At first I was so worried and could not see how it could work out all right But then it surprised me by turning out better than I could have imagined I was so impressed that it could turn that around and I ended up extremely happy with it I just loved this book [...]

I ve read a number of Cinderella adaptions so it s rare for me to run across one that actually surprises me This one did At the start, Ellie seems like your normal Cinderella, complete with nasty stepmother and stepsisters There s the glimpses of the prince, the upcoming ball, the servitude, and then Then things get interesting Cinderella arrives at the ball in a different manner than you d expect The ball doesn t exactly go as expected either I gasped out loud in one part, the twist leaving me [...]

    15. This book is amazing One of the best Cinderella retellings I have read yet and the only one I ve read from a Christian stand point The author did an fantastic job of bringing the reader to a different place and time with all sorts of characters the dashing prince, faithful servant, annoying stepsisters, great friends, and of course, the lowly maid with high hopes.Even if you think you know the story behind this fairytale, you won t be prepared for the unexpected twist A definite recommend for ev [...]

    16. Shantelle Mary Hannu takes the classic fairy tale of Cinderella and spins it into a lovable romantic tale I have read reviews on this book prior to reading it hinting at some of the twists in the book And finally actually reading them was exiting The first twist was completely unexpected and shocking I believe the twist in itself makes this version of Cinderella completely original and unique.I really liked the fact that this novella was a non magical fairy tale I enjoyed watching this non magic [...]

    17. A Dream Not Imagined is a Cinderella retelling This was the first fairy tale retelling that I read I m not a big fan of fairy tales, but this was a fun book There were definitely some twists towards the end that I was not expecting

    19. I was very excited to read this book Two of my friends had read it and they told me it was really, really good but they both said there was a very unexpected twist So, when I got the book, I was excepting something.but I was still shocked by the twist the story took All in all it was am amazing book You have the dashing prince, the wicked stepmother, and the stepsisters, yet I loved how it was non magical and told from a christian view I also loved the message in the book of letting Christ write [...]

    20. Oh I loved this book Shantelle did an awesome job It had a different twist from the original Cinderella, and it was way different from all the retellings I ve read on this fairy tale And not to mention, it was Christian I did predict the final twist, but that didn t make it any less enjoyable However, I DID NOT see the first twist It Was Amazing Great job Shantelle And Rowen sigh My brother must be tired of me saying this about every guy in every book okay, maybe a LITTLE bit exaggerated , but I [...]

    21. This story is a non magic but absolutely delightful fairytale loosely based on the story of Cinderella Key word loosely based Honestly, if we knew exactly what was going to happen, where would be the fun in that Ellie Abbington is our protagonist in this story She has two snobby stepsisters, a strict stepmother, and an unloving father Despite being abused by her family in her life as a maid, unaccepted by those of her flesh and blood, and not seeming to fit in amongst the other servants, Ellie m [...]

    22. I m always excited to get a hold of fairy tale re tellings and I was especially eager for this one after all the positive buzz I d seen surrounding it And I was not disappointed As the synopsis says, Ellie is caught in awkward middle ground when it comes to her family and her station in life Despite any trials she has faced, she maintains a positive outlook on life and falls back on her faith to get her through the hard times When a chance encounter in the village leads to an invitation to a roy [...]

    23. What a sweet story I m so glad I decided to pick this up Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Fairy Tale retellings I love seeing how each author puts their own spin on a classic story, Shantelle Mary Hannu did a fantastic job with this I loved the themes about trusting God with your future and letting him write your story I can honestly say that I was so encouraged after reading A Dream Not Imagined The writing was lovely and the characters were great, I really loved our main character Ellie, [...]

    24.

    25. This book is so good Such a sweet message God s plans are always better than ours The writing was great The characters were amazing I love long books but now I see that short books can be equally good.I do admit to being slightly puzzled by the prologue I could not see how it related to the rest until the end Once I got there though that didn t matter view spoiler Prince Charles Edingsworth was so horrid Even his name I didn t really like him even before I met him I was prepared to give him a ch [...]

    26. I love retellings, but they can be a challenge to write and bring something unexpected to the reader Fortunately this novella does just that, Shantelle manages to weave a tale, using threads that keep true to the story we all know and love, but she also puts a fresh spin on the classic Cinderella Making it relevant, and unique Leaving you with strong female lead to root for, and enough new twists to keep you guessing.

    27. Notes My full review is up on my blog I read this book all in one go It was totally amazing and kept me reading, obviously I will forever be interested in Cinderella retellings and most other fairy tales I especially love when there is new weird unexplained magic Because guess what There is no magic that I am interested in real life.The re telling is one of the best I have seen And let me tell you I have read watched a lot otherwise known as an absurd amount This book is different I really enjoy [...]
