My tale has been told again and again, and I’ve heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn’t have laughed if they’d known the real story. It wasn't their fault. They didn't know the truth. Nobody did.

My name is Rapunzel. I will tell you my story. I will tell you the truth.

If you follow me , then you know how much of a sucker I am for fairy tales. When I was little, I had tons of books where princess were rescued by their prince charming. And of course, I daydreamed a lot of having my own prince charming one day. So when I heard about this book, you know I was on it like white on rice!

Plot: This plot is pretty standard following the lines of the original tale with a few twists here and there.  I can tell you that right from the start the plot is intriguing. Rapunzel is tricked and lured into many false words. She is naive and young, only wanting what every young maiden wants. A long, lasting romance. I particular enjoyed the fact that this tale goes back and forth from past to present. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would like it told this way, but it did flow well so I went on reading. Every jump into the past leads to important twists in the future.

Love/Friendship: Through out Rapunzel life she has befriend  many friends and has come to like guys. Though her relationships never last long, I adore how strong she is. Her love for her first love is never wavering, giving her strength to move on. She holds on to what she knows, her family and true friends and that gives Rapunzel amazing strength to fight back. She does make a few friends who in  turn help her along the way. They all want to make sure she gets her fairy-tale ending.

Ending: After so many years, things finally came to an end. The ending has a great rectification for Rapunzel. Things are finally set in place for her. Even if it does come at a price, I think over all Rapunzel  deserves it.

If you ask me, this is a great re-tale of the classic. It doesn’t loose the classical feel but it gives the story much more depth that any reader can enjoy. A thrilling adventure with rich characters and a exiting plot line, My Name Is Rapunzel is wonderful.

I give it 4 BITES!


About the author:


Website | Face Book | Twitter

Born and raised in Aurora, Illinois I spent my childhood climbing trees and playing street games with the neighborhood kids. I was a proud tomboy, until the day I didn’t want to hike the land to an old graveyard. From that point forward I was considered a “girl”.

At the age of seventeen I moved to Kentucky and eventually began to raise a family of my own. Having worn several “hats” my life has been an adventure all on its own. Still, to this day, I yearns to be a mechanic and own a pink toolbox with pink tools.

I can usually be found updating my website, reading great books, watching awesome movies or creating videos for my YouTube channel. Most days I craves Diet Coke, pizza and chocolate, in no particular order.

I don’t read scary books or watch horror movies… I’m way too scared! Lol.

    I like that this is a retelling but there are some twists thrown in for good measure. Something about a fairy tale that makes me happy. Even though many of them were pretty grim.

      Me too! I love fairy-tales.

  2. What a pretty cover! It kind of resembles Taylor Swift back in the day when she didn’t straighten her pretty curls. The summary of this immediately captures my attention and it seems it captured yours too! I’m glad the past and present flip flopping worked out well for the story. I’m always a little hesitant about that myself but it apparently the author did a good job with it. Thanks for the great review!

      HAHA! Taylor Swift. I see what you mean. And I hope that you will give this book a try.

  3. Oh I do like retellings and I like the sound of Rapunzel. I always thought her character needed so much more fleshing out and this book sounds like it really gives it to her. Will have to check it out!

      Exactly! Like a kick-butt Rapuznel. I totally agree with that.

    I’ve always liked this fairy tale, and retellings always perk my interest, even though I have a hit or miss relationship with them! I’m glad to hear you liked this one, I might have to give it a shot sometime.
