Book Review: The Reflection of Queen Snow White  
Oops... I forgot about this one. With the hubby finally at home I don't have time for anything! :D

A couple of weeks ago David Meredith contacted me on goodreads and asked me to read his book. He sent me a free copy for my kindle and all he asked in return was a review. I'm sure I'm not the only one who received this kind of request but it got me so excited... Seriously, I would have never choose to read this kind of book, but as a marketing idea it's quite a good one!

Who doesn't love freebies?

The Reflection of Queen Snow White

Originally published: 2013
Author: David Meredith
Genres: Fantasy
(reading time: Jun 2 - Jun 4)
As a kid I always wondered about what happens in the "ever after"... The story always end with the prince and the princes getting married, they kiss and than "the end". I remember asking "but what happens when their lips part?" And my mom would say "they'll kiss again, they'll be happy, they'll be crossed with each other sometimes, they will laugh and they will fight, but they will always love each other" and this is what this book is about: it's about what happens in the ever after. Life goes on, and David Meredith guides us through the journey of Snow White after she loses the Love of her life. Thanks to her evil step mother mirror (very clever idea) Snow White is able to see what she has and not only what she has lost.

A very well written story. With a lot of interesting missing scenes form the Disney Story and some parts that the Grimm's brothers would have appreciate.

Thank you David for sending me this book. I really enjoyed this tale. I've never been a huge Snow White's fan (She's not my favorite Disney Princess) but you made me like her a little bit more :)

Your Mother is a very wise lady. What a wonderful explanation she gave you, insightful and moving, love that.

the book sounds good but since Once Upon A Time I have been utterly unable to imagine any Snow White that is not the one from there and more specifically since I fell in lust love with Regina she is the only evil Queen for me hehe :)

My mum rocks :D

I totally understand you! It was difficult for me too not to see Snow White as Mary Margaret. This version of Snow White is quite weak compared to the one on OUAT and Charming is more mature and very invested in his political role! Oh Regina... Lana is SO EFFING GORGEOUS... Between her an JMo I don't know where to look xD

And I LOVE how they brought back The Evil Queen without having Regina turn evil again. I thought it was incredably clever to do it the way they did... Plus TEH EBIL QUEEN IS BACK! *squeeee* It's gonna be an epic season 6 imho and this version of her is the purest evil, the can not be redeemed or saved because the good part of her is in Regina... An even eviler evil Queen! \0/ It's like they made TV perfection LOL :DDDDDD

I'm super excited too! I can't wait! That was a very clever twist and I LOVED the steam punk theme for Jekyll and Hyde! I'm so excited for next season!!!

Yes! that was so clever. I struggled a bit with this last season tbh but I think the start and end of it were most excellent so I am putting it down as a mid season lul, I cant not love this show, I think it's genius.

I think the middle was a bit difficult for me cos all the baddies were being redeemed and I really like bad guys. Mind you Rumple stayed true to form and I really love Rumple hehe Bad guys are my thing tbh.

I think this show should have less episodes... t would be just fine with a 12 eps season... Otherwise they end up having too many major arcs and you don't know where a season starts and the other begins!!!
