Briar Rose

Jana Oliver

For Briar Rose, life is anything but a fairy tale. She's stuck in a small town in deepest Georgia with parents who won't let her out of their sight, a bunch of small-minded, gossiping neighbours and an evil ex who's spreading nasty rumours about what she may or may not have done in the back of his car. She's tired of it all, so when, on her sixteenth birthday, her parents tell her that she is cursed and will go to sleep for a hundred years when the clock strikes midnight, she's actually kind of glad to leave it all behind. She says her goodbyes, lies down, and closes her eyes . . .


. . . And then she wakes up. Cold, alone and in the middle of the darkest, most twisted fairy tale she could ever have dreamed of.

Now Briar must fight her way out of the story that has been created for her, but she can't do it alone. She never believed in handsome princes, but now she's met one her only chance is to put her life in his hands, or there will be no happy ever after and no waking up.

okay so fairy tale retelling, but with a totally original twist. And we all know I love unique and original things to another level.

This has fast become a favourite of mine, and it's one I'll re-read for years to come, the characters where well written, and jumped off the page, Briar is easy to connect to and I seriously loved her she's the kind of character I totally love and who I root for until the end, no matter what they do.

The book was fast paced, imaginative, original, had lots of little twists and turns that I loved, and I couldn't put the book down, I was glued to the page, sucked in to the vivid world by the fantastic world building.

There where so many twists I didn't see coming, and I loved the ending, and Briar's choice, and like I said, it was so original, and had it's own twists, and yeah....fangirling stopping now.
