Review: Fairytale

Fairytale
Fairytale by Maggie Shayne
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really wish Goodreads would add a half star option. This book for me wasn’t really a two star book but it wasn’t a three star book either. I’ve heard that this was Maggie Shayne’s first book (which explains why it’s being offered as a free book through Smashbooks). It’s okay. Not great, not awful, just okay. I haven’t read any of her other books so I can’t compare, but I know people who love her stuff and so I’m guessing that like any good author, her work has grown since writing her first book. I certainly hope that’s the case.

This one was just really slow. Downright exhaustingly slow at times. But I still managed to care about the characters and wanted to know what was going to happen to them, so I kept reading. Sadly though, when the book was just getting good and it looked like there were 100 pages left to read, the book ended with a horribly quick finale that was ridiculously rushed. (Haha… Rush pun not intended.) Then there were 100 pages of another book to tease readers with. I read those pages too and have no desire to seek out that book. I might be interested however in checking out the next book in this series. Maybe.
