How it made its own rules, how nothing was how we expect it to be, how the laws of nature and physics simply did not exist inside of it. There aren’t evil witches or fairy godmothers or anything like that.

This retelling keeps the barest plot points of the story, but everything else about it goes completely down the toilet. Though her curse at first is a hindrance, in some weird way it turns into an advantage. The ending ruined what had been an otherwise charming book.

I understood where it was coming from, in the true love aspect – it certainly lasted longer and was more real than anything Aurore and Ironheart shared, for camero.

So she ventures off into the Forbidden Forest to find answers.

Goodness, I could write a whole response to literature about this, but I reccomend you read it, it’ll leave you with mountains and loads of brain thinking and questions. Sorry, but I can’t get passed it. She however only beautt a few pages on the actual sleep describing the fact of her in a dreamlike state dreaming of another nightmare. I read the book all in one read and had nightmares that night. Unbeknownst to Aurore, however, was the fact that time moves quite differently in the forest.

That must have bewuty another way to make this relationship work otherwise, no? Not too long ago, I experienced a horrible hailstorm, where the hailstones were as big as golf balls, and THEY caused thousands of dollars of damage for people all across the city.

Now, camsron this thing authors sometimes do when retelling fairytales that I kind of despise. I also think Ironheart was not the one for her, although he was sweet, a whole life story had been already built for Oswald and Aurore.
