Book Review: Unenchanted

So I’m about to tell you a few things about myself before we begin.

  1. I love getting things for free.
  2. I love reading.

So if you were to combine those two things, you would get free books. Yes, I love free books. However, in the past I have found that some of them aren’t worth your time even if they are free.

So I’ve decided to start a little book review ‘series’ of me reading free books and reviewing them.

The first book that I am reviewing for this series is Unenchanted by Chanda Hahn. This book, like many others, is free to promote the book series as a whole. I’m not sure how many books are in this series, but I know it’s more than two.

So, onto the book.

I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I’ve never really read a story like this. So it’s about a girl, Mina, who is a descendant of the Grimm brothers. The Grimm family was cursed by the fae so that each descendant would have to live all of the Grimm stories, unless they die. If they live through all of the stories, they would break the curse. Bottom line is that nobody in Mina’s family has done that. Her father and her uncle both died trying to break the curse, so it now falls to her.

Mina, a hilariously awkward character, decides to take on the stories so that her little brother, Charlie, will not have to.

This book has successfully caught my interest, and I’ll most likely buy the next book. It was full of great characterization (one of my favorite things) and a great plot (also one of my favorite things). I recommend this book for anyone interested in romance, supernatural beings, and fantasy.

A warning: you’re going to have to move some time aside to read this book because once you start you won’t want to stop. (I read it in one day)

Another warning: there is a severe plot twist near the end.

 

Happy Reading!
