I received a free digital copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Anyone else go simply nuts for a classic Disney retelling? I know I do and Slumber was an absolute gem for me. I must admit, this book had everything my little nerdy heart could ever want in a retelling.
I originally requested this book so I could tell my best friend about it. She is absolutely nuts over Sleeping Beauty (shout out to Jill, love you boo).
I won’t go into too many details about this book, because this is one of those stories that is better to read it than read about it.
Lucy is adorable I loved her tomboy-eques know it all attitude. I feel it is something we haven’t seen in a sleeping beauty character before. I also loved that we got to see this from Prince Phillip’s point of view (though I am still hoping eventually we get to see this from Jack’s perspective as well). I don’t think we get enough fairytale stories with a good prince backstory. Sure.. We know they are handsome and they save the princess, and will shower her with riches.. Etc.. but I loved that I got to hear more about them in this story. I love that the relationship aspect is between Jack and Phillip (we stan this all day every day).
I absolutely adored how this book ended. 2 princes, 1 princes, and one amazing love story.I cannot wait to see what else Becky Bird comes up with. I am watching you lady! I gave this novel a solid 3 star rating, it was cute, adorable, swoonworthy.. but was still somewhat predictable. I loved it though..
Special thank you to Becky Bird and Netgalley for allowing me to review this novel.
