My Thoughts

Move over, Imagines! `Once Upon Now` is taking over and ready to conquer the book world!

I´ve got three words for this anthology- I LOVE IT!

`Once Upon Now` is every fairytale-lovers dream come true. Each story has been written by Wattpad´s créme de la créme and boy did they pull some small masterpiece together! We´re talking about modern tales inspired by classic fairytales we all grew up with. Rapunzel, Pinnochio, Sleeping Beauty and even the Princess and the Pea have been properly pimped and twisted and woven into original ideas and I can´t begin to tell you how utterly cool the outcome is.

One book + 10 Wattpad writers = one bundle of hellish great stories!

If you´re looking for something new, something that´s 100% entertaining and full of hope, punishment, love ( !!!! Love is always IMPORTANT) and glamour then you better check this book out.

Danielle Banas, Mikaela Bender, J. M. Butler, Debra Goelz, Shannon Klare, R. S. Kovach, Ali Novak, Tammy Oja, Christine Owen and Jesse Sprague- all these ladies kick some serious ass!

I´m giving `Once Upon Now` 5 out of 5 magical stars

**A WATTYS 2014 AWARD WINNING STORY**

My Thoughts

Mermaids and vampires? Does that even work in a book? I can tell you- It´s possible. I couldn´t believe it myself. `Mermaids and the Vampires Who Love Them` by author Brittanie Charmintine is a breath of fresh air! I´ve read so many books from all kinds of genres and NEVER have I come across a story as unique and as compelling as this one. ( still amazed by how mermaids and vampires worked together )

After the eye-catcher cover I read the book description. I´ll be honest here- I had no clue what to think of what I saw. A beautiful cover, a title that said so much yet not enough, and then the description. Hmm. The fact that the book had won an award AND that it´s currently #2 in the Wattpad Vampire rankings did finalize my decision to read this story.

Let me just say – WOW! . From the beginning to the last page- EVERYTHING was exciting. The characters, the storyline, the details…. all sent me on a ride I will never forget.

Although this was more a Young Adult novel I enjoyed it immensely.

This story had so much to offer ( and SO much more ). To say I was surprised about the Vampires and Mermaids is an understatement- This author packed some more mythical figures into the mix which made this story one huge colorful piece of enjoyment. Are you looking for fairies in a story? Or maybe a werewolf? Hof about greek Gods? Search no more, they´re all in this book and make a wonderful lot.

What I loved most about `Mermaids and the Vampires who Love Them` was that there never was a slow moment. If it wasn´t Waverly doing something spectacular it was another character, showing their abilities and adding using them at the cross-cultural high school.

This was an exciting read that will most definitely make my „Top 10 List Of Awesome Reads“. A magical, mythical, lovable story about new beginnings, lies, truths, friendship, loyalty, and of course, love. 

Highly recommendable. YOU CANNOT MISS OUT ON THIS BOOK!

Cover- 5 stars ( it´sblue. I love blue. And a mermaids tail/ fin. Does this cover need more?)

Characters – 5 stars ( Wave, Pierce, Cupid & co. made my nights. Can´t ask for more.)

My emotional state after reading this bookecstatic! Ready to dive into an ocean and fight off Sharks! 🙂

Short Story Description

My Thoughts

A Fairytale gone OVERBOARD!

I love Debbie Goelz to bits! „The Lady in the Tower“ is a fascinating, creative and intelligent story that had me smiling for days after reading!

I have to be honest- I had no clue what I was getting myself into when I started reading. The story started out interesting and after the dragons came into the picture I just couldn´t help myself. I woke the evil, snoring dragon who lays by my side at night because I laughed so hard.

Loved the dragons, loved the nymph, loved the prince…. Meeh, * wave off * I loved everything about this story- even the AHA! Moment. It´s simple storytelling done in a brilliant way.

This is what storytelling is all about, folks. It´s about letting your imagination run wild and that is what this writer has done.

Debbie Goelz has a beautiful, colorful imagination and I couldn´t be more happy that I found her stories on Wattpad.

I´m giving „The Lady in the Tower“ 5 out of 5 stars.
