Recent Read: Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddox

Okay, I will admit that fairytale spin-offs are one of my little quirky reading pleasures, but I really like this one. The whole idea is what would happen if Cinderella really didn't want to marry the prince after all? I think rewritten fairy tales are so much fun!

I love how Haddox just picks a good stopping point and ends the book. We know they're going to live happily ever after--why drag it out? It's really fun how she starts and ends this novel in the middle of things, which keeps a retelling very lively.
