Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Fairy Retelling Based From A TV Mini Series

The 10th Kingdom - Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Kathryn Wesley
The 10th Kingdom is book that is tied to a tv movie that aired in the USA in 2000, under the same name.  It is retelling of some fairy tales and what happens after ever after.  Probably one of stories that started landslide of retelling of fairy tale movies and books.

 

I had seen the movie that this book is based on.  I love it.  I thought the book was going add on to the story or continuation of it.  It did not, it is basically a rewrite of the movie but done really well.  Since it has been 17 years (Wow!) since the movie aired I pretty much forgot a lot of the movie, so it was like a new story.  Still enjoyed it. I also loved that there were pictures of characters in the movie which made it easier to picture the actor as the characters. Love the characters Virginia and Wolf. At first I did not like them as a couple but they grow on you.  

 

I still feel there should be more after the story and wish it was a series.  I liked the stories behind the 10th Kingdoms but I do not think we will get more. It’s not the best retelling of fairy tale but it is fun and worthwhile to read or watch if you rather.

 

I really wish NBC would do more movies like this that they did in the early 2000’s.  They were bright, colorful and fanciful. Just my kind of fantasy telling.
