Her novels for the adult crowd include Austenland (now a major motion picture starring Keri Russell) and Midnight in Austenland.

REVIEW:
So cool, but very short.
Have you ever wondered what life was like for Snow White after the prince saved her and she became queen? I have. This little tale answers some of that question.
Apple is Snow White's daughter. That alone should have fairytale fans reading the story.
We don't learn much, it is a rather short story, like I said. What we do learn is she is becoming a young lady, and being groomed to become queen. 
I know the book, Storybook of Legends, will go into greater detail. I look forward to that.
This might be too short for some, but I liked it. It gives you the taste for more.

3/5

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
