Fairest of All by Serena Valentino

Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen

I loved the thought of this book and really all of these Disney books. It’s been sitting on my shelf for a while and deiced to read it.

I’m always so intrigued by the villains side of the story. I’ve read a few different retellings and I didn’t like this one as much as I hoped.

Throughout the book, we are getting the “Queen’s” story. We never get her name, it’s just always The Queen, which is kind of annoying. She talks about her past, which was so very sad. I feel like there’s always a tragic story and it really shows that your parents can really do a lot of damage.

I felt like this story had so much promise but I just felt like something was missing for me. I did really like to see how she was good and kind in the beginning. She even loved Snow. She then turns into this “evil” person and I felt like it was a little strange and drastic. The “sisters” were just so creepy and I felt like they didn’t really fit into the story that well.

Overall, it was just okay. It wasn’t terrible but I really didn’t fall in love with this story. I will definitely be reading the other books in the series.
