| Arc Review| Cinderella is dead by Kalynn Bayron

Title: Cinderella is Dead

Publisher : Bloomsbury ya

Publication date: July 7th 2020

Pages : 400

My rating : 🌟🌟🌟🌟

It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.

Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee, and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all–and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew . . .

This fresh take on a classic story will make readers question the tales they’ve been told, and root for girls to break down the constructs of the world around them.

I really enjoyed this retelling if Cinderella and enjoyed the fresh retake on the Cinderella myth.

I fell in love with the characters in this book, I also really enjoyed the plot and the setting of the story and found it flowed really well. I felt when reading this book the the story had the perfect pace to keep your attention , I didn’t feel like it was rushed or like it dragged it was just right for me. I did find the story abit predictable but they was plenty twists and turns that kept me hooked and reading.

Sophia is a bright beacon throughout this story, she shows the girls in the world of Lille how to raise their voices and stand up for themselves and not to hold back.

I really did enjoy this story, from the characters , to the pace of writing and also really enjoyed the authors writing style. I don’t read many retelling stories but have to say the title, cover and blurb caught my attentions.

I want to say Thankyou to netgalley , the publisher and author for allowing me to read and review this arc , this does not affect my opinion and my review is my own thoughts.
