    SPOILERS 1.5 stars.Clearly I am in the minority The writing itself is good but if I don t like the heroine or hero in this case both the book cannot be saved.The only reason I kept on reading and didn t quit was because I was hoping things would get better but they didn t.So here we have an h who has shitty parents yet she sacrifices everything for them She litterally screws over the one person Rumpelstilskin who helps her, and falls in love with the douchbag hero who not only deliberatley attem [...]

    Well crap.There goes my first DNF of 2017I tried DNF at 30 solutely nothing about this story flowed naturally and most of it was a bunch of contradicting crap or repetitive crap and yeah basically just a lot of crap.Im pretty disappointed right now because a Rumplestilskin retelling How many times does that happen Answer At least one time too many The worst part is, by the time I knew it wasn t getting any better, I already really wanted to know what happened Thankfully, I was able to find spoil [...]

    To be honest I liked the beginning of this story but then it got kinda boring But of course it redeemed itself at the end and earned 4 stars It had twists and turns that I really was not expecting If it is a monster you believe me to be, then I suppose it s a monster I must be The Little Man as he is called through the book starts out as a character that you automatically like But as the story moves forward you see his character change He becomes cold and unforgiving But once we learn about his [...]

    I wasn t expecting to like it as much as I did It was such a refreshing and original retelling of Rumpelstiltskin I absolutely loved it

    An original, superbly re imagined fantasy, this is an outstandingly well told tale.A clever plot is woven of threads of magic, friendship, duty and desire Engaging characters are led by Aoife, who has to overcome one challenge after another Some are burdens, some are magical but the hardest are those in which she has to untangle a mystery, entwined with her own emotions and those of others Human motivations play as big a part as do magic, and becoming an adult Nor is Aoife the only one who needs [...]

    You can see this full review and at Book Briefs bookbriefs Twisted The Girl Who Uncovered Rumplestilskin s Name is a young adult fantasy re imagining of the story of Rumplestilskin by Bonnie M Hennessy Twisted is Bonnie s debut novel and I have to say I loved it I found it to be a delightful, and dark twisty tale of not only Rumplestilskin, but also of the young lady, Aoife.This part of the summary is what initially got me interested in the story was, This is not the tale of a damsel in distres [...]

    Wow This is a well done retelling of Rumplestilskin There is a lot of depth to the story and it had the feeling of the old world.Aoife is a talented young woman She readily accepts most of the people who cross her path She has an intelligent mind and is able to figure out how to turn a poorly performing farm into one producing a profit Her father brags that she has the Midas touch and can turn things to gold This backfires on him when he is told that he must prove his claims or loose his farm.Th [...]

    Not your mother s RumplestiltskinWell written with interesting characters you sometimes aren t sure whether you like or loathe The plot is intricate and never lets you catch your breath The ending left me spooked.

    3.5 stars.Well, what do I say I like the story and the writing was good but it felt like it lacks passion between the hero and the heroine And I m not talking about passion on their sexual encounter but the whole romantic side of the story I mean, their love for each other I just wish the author have explored a little bit about that I m not even a romantic person but I ve noticed that so maybe the book really needs some improvement on that department Or maybe it s a sign that I m starting to ha [...]

    I m pretty sure this is the first rumplestiltskin retelling I have ever read I do not count books where he has been a side story character I think it was pretty good The author puts an interesting spin on why the little man we all loved to hate as children does what he does and why he wants our heroine to guess his name I found the soon and it s results satisfying it wasn t the best fairy tale retelling I ve read, but it was the best rumplestiltskin fairy tale retelling I ve read.

    DNF after 2nd chapter Was very uncomfortable with the very prominent references to the brothel, and how bad Aoife s parents were.

    A lovely, different fairy tale retelling.With fairy tales being such a big thing in the market now days, I ve read my fair share of retellings This book, however, was absolutely unique I picked it up months ago and didn t dive in until recently without having reread the blurb So, going in blind, I didn t know what story I was getting That may or may not have added to my enjoyment Regardless, I figured it out soon enough when gold and straw came into the picture.So first of all, I LOVED the time [...]

    Full Review at What s Beyond Forks Twisted was a dark and creative re telling of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale You know how so many fairy tales in their original form are tragic and scary This felt original and authentic like those stories It definitely wasn t Disney.None of the characters are great people Not even the main characters They all have made some pretty bad life choices That was part of the story s intrigue though As the story unfolds, many other stories come together in a pretty br [...]

    I struggled to like this book At first I felt sorry for the miller s dughter, whose name I can t pronounce But after seeing her reject Rumpel, who adored her and saved her life, for parents who used her and a man who was abusive and nasty and who would have burned her for a witch, I no longet did so I was pissed off because Rumple was the freaking solution to all her problems and all he wanted was to be loved and for all of her so called seeing the truth she was as hypocritical as everyone else [...]

    Finding worth in that which makes others turn away I suppose that is what I brought you here for Aoife pronounced Eee fuh , is a clever, clever girl with a pretty rough life She s also got a giant heart and despite her upbringing, isn t judgemental at all She s a bit standoffish, surebut she s very confident, too.This retelling of Rumpelstiltskin was not what I was expecting It was dark in all the right places and painted some new characters into the story while giving a backstory to others that [...]

    As the name proclaims, this was an incredibly twisted version of Rumplestiltskin Although I enjoyed the first part, the second part became far too dark for me As such, I don t feel right rating the book or recommending it.

    Surprisingly goodI usually don t expect a lot out of a debut author, but this one I couldn t put down Very well written and captivating

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book I never cared much for the original fairy tale, but this retelling was absolutely amazing It made Rumpelstiltskin seem so human, so real The main characters are quite well developed, and the storytelling is solid I really liked this book

    Wasn t my favorite for several reasons, but I finished it I was not a fan of the writing style, there was no detail or explanation and the dialogue wasn t great I didn t really get into the story until than half way through, and the first half almost made me stop so many times But the end redeemed it enough that I m not entirely disappointed in wasting time reading this.

    I wanted to like this book I thought it sounded interesting and I was excited to read a Rumpelstiltskin retelling When this book first started, I remained optimistic but soon it was evident I shouldn t be First off, there are no characters in this book to care about Aoife is in typical YA fashion, not like other girls She goes into brothels to get her father out, does math, hates girly things, and gasp wears pants later in the book The Rumpelstiltskin character is awful, when the book first star [...]

    Good story, needs proofreading Weird spots with fractions in place of words, like it didn t get digitized right or something This re telling has Rumple not knowing his own name so for him to demand heroine guess is a little strange how will he know if she guesses right There were interesting themes of motherhood throughout, explored in different ways and I enjoyed that All in all a good read if you like fairytale retells.

    I am a huge fan of Fairy Tales, especially the Brothers Grimm, it is rare that you find a retelling of an old favorite that you fall in love with This story was riveting, it ept me turning pages from beginning to end Aoife is the young girl in this tale, who catches the eye of the dwarf Rumpelstiltskin, she cares for him even tho his body is bent ad twisted, and his skin is hard and still, but she has obligations, a drunken father, overbearing abusive mother, and sister bedridden with chronic il [...]

    Fairy tale retelling Story of Rumpelstiltskin retold as a story of family and loss This tangled Web of truth, lies, love and loss sets this story apart from the run of the mill fairy tales.

    Got this as a freebie on Kindle and I did finish it over the course of two days And I ll say this, I m rather lukewarm about this novel It wasn t anything stellar, engrossing, riveting, thought provoking or otherwise impressive But on the other hand, it was not anything that was obnoxious, horrid or otherwise bland It s between the two The novel is straightforward, following the basic format of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale for the most part Miler s Daughter Check That s in the form of Aofie I [...]

    I ve read my fair share of Rumpelstiltskin retellings and most of them make him the hero and love interest While I like the versions where the villain is turned into the hero it was nice to read one that was true to the original while adding depth to the story Of course there is much changed in Bonnie M Hennessy s version but crux of the story is the same Aoife is the daughter of a fool of a man who s stupid mouth gets her stuck trying to do the impossible and literally spin straw into gold Th [...]

    Twisted was an interesting take on the Rumplestilskin fairy tale There was a lot detail and background about Rumpelstilskin that made the story interesting I liked most of the characters, even Aoife, although I was annoyed that she just let her family walk all over her, especially her father The only character that I didn t like that much was the Duke, Ronen I just didn t buy the whole bad guy to good guy thing, it was too easy and it happened way too fast In the beginning of the book, he was n [...]

    I really wanted to love Twisted, because it was a retelling of a story we do not hear often enough Overall I did enjoy it, and looked forward to reading it when I had a spare moment As the name suggests, althought most likely not in this context, there were a lot of twists that makes it vary from the original story I loved the twists, and where they brought the story, but I did not love the main character She is your run of the mill heroine, who is beautiful, but does not what to conform to the [...]

    I really loved how this was written I read it all in a 2 hour long flight and it was perfect The emotions were realistic though there were some aspects of the book that did annoy me but without the events, i suppose the book wouldn t have been written I really did love the little man and pitied him for the unnecessary hurt he s been put through The mystery was developed well but the whole find his name thing only started at about 75% of the book I didn t mind though as the development of the plo [...]

    A Horrible Retelling of RumpelstiltskinI m so disappointed with this take on a classic fairy tale I have never before hated a retelling as much as I hate this one There were so many things I didn t like, but they all had to do with Aoife Aoife got on my nerves so much The fact that she 1 leaves Rumpelstiltskin to go back to the family that practically sold her to the Duke, 2 feeling love with the same man who threatened her family and was going to burn as a witch, and 3 tortured someone just to [...]

    This story is unexpectedly compelling and original The characters were sufficiently nuanced, and had it been written for a mature audience the author could have easily and skillfully delved deeper into the character s conflicted personalities because nearly all of the characters in the story are profoundly conflicted But for the intended audience the character development was ideal.The imagery was powerful and sufficiently visceral The plot was unexpected and dynamic and engaging right from the [...]
