Review: Beauty by Nancy Ohlin | #FairyTaleFortnight

Fairy Tale Fortnight is in full swing here on the blog, but it's high time I pull the ole vlog into this -- so I give you my first vlog of FTF, a review of BEAUTY by Nancy Ohlin!

Vlog viewers voted on this one awhile back, and many of you were eager to hear my thoughts on it. Hopefully, those thoughts won't disappoint you too much, 'cause suffice to say, I was not a fan...

If you want more FTF vlogs, check out this playlist, and until the next vlog, thanks for watching!

Beauty by Nancy Ohlin

Fairy Tale Retelling, 175 pages

Looks to kill for...

Ana is nothing like her glamorous mother, Queen Veda, whose hair is black as ravens and whose lips are red as roses. Alas, Queen Veda loathes anyone whose beauty dares to rival her own—including her daughter.

And despite Ana’s attempts to be plain to earn her mother’s affection,
she’s sent away to the kingdom’s exclusive boarding school.

At the Academy, Ana is devastated when her only friend abandons her for the popular girls. Isolated and alone, Ana resolves to look like a true princess to earn the acceptance she desires.

But when she uncovers the dangerous secret that makes all of the girls at the Academy so gorgeous, just how far will Ana go to fit in?

  1. Oh, sorry to hear this one was such a big let-down! It's almost more irritating when you can see the potential a story has but failed to live up to, than when you can't see any redeeming qualities to it. But yeah, it's never a good sign when you're thinking to yourself that the book is reading like the first draft of something...sounds like this one could have used a good deal more editing (and expansion!). Thanks for the head's-up :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
