What are you currently reading?

confessions of ugly stepsister

While writing this post, I must admit I haven’t actually started reading this book yet. I probably will have read a few pages, once this has been published.

I’m finally getting around to reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire author of “The Wicked Years,” series. Based on the children’s story Cinderella. Maguire uses his typical flair to retell the classic tale from the perspective of the sisters left behind.

The story is set in 17th century Holland and since I’m not familiar with it at all. I’ll just have to read on to find out more about it.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished reading Kindred by Octavia Butler, yesterday afternoon. The fantastical tale of a modern woman of the 70s transported to the antebellum South to save the life of a young boy named Rufus. Our heroine endures, the systematic abuse of the time period while trying to complete her mission and return home. This book will infuriate you, bring tears to your eyes and have you cheering for the unspeakable. But if you read it, you’ll be happy you did.

I also recently finished Hart’s Hope by Orson Scott Card. I respect that man as a pioneer in the speculative fiction genre but regretfully disliked this book a lot. The reasons are endless and you can read more about them here. Definitely check it out for yourself before making your final opinions.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m honestly not sure I’ve been meaning to finish reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, but I also wouldn’t mind starting a new series…decisions….

    I read Hart’s Hope way back in high school (over 30 yrs ago now), so I’m off to check out your review of it to remind myself of the book. At the time I remember being inspired to create my own stories from it, but not wanting to read anything more by Card for a while afterward.

    Just put Kindred on my library request list. I’ll probably wait on Confessions until I’ve read Wicked itself first. I did love the theatrical release, but I haven’t looked at the other.

    Did you ever see the Grimm episode with the twist on the Cinderella theme, where the stepmother and the sisters were the ones who suffered?

    If you’re interested, here’s my WWW Wednesday: https://edenmabee.wordpress.com/2018/01/18/wednesday-stuff/

      I haven’t actually seen that epsiode. I have to go watch it now though, I was always a bigger fan of OUAT.

      Happy Reading 💙

        OUAT? I’m sorry… I feel like I really should know this, but the brain just isn’t clicking. Hope you enjoy the episode if you watch it.

      • Noel Bleu says:

        Once Upon A Time, sorry about that… lol. It’s a TV show like Grimm also dealing with Fairytales and Folklore. I’m obsessed with the subject, I try to write the genre myself 😊 do you which season it was?

      • Eden says:

        Ah! Yeah… my husband showed me a few episodes (he’s watched the whole series). I couldn’t find myself as involved… maybe because it didn’t have a Monroe. 😉 Yeah, I know there was a Rumpelstiltskin, but…)

        I don’t remember the episode, but I bet … quick google and it’s this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2373013/
