I am so excited to share my review of Saving Cinderella by Colleen Hoover. Cinderella was one of my favorite fairy tale stories as a little girl and now my three year old granddaughter calls her Cindelella...especially after her Cinderella Storybook Adventure 3rd birthday party.
Anyway, I'll move on from my memories of the original Cinderella to Hoover's story.
A chance encounter in
the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across
him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with
conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be
When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like
Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between
them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect.
Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of
One year and one bad relationship later, his
disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl
with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon
realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he
really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially
when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.
Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.
FROM MY PERSPECTIVE:
Colleen Hoover has such a unique writing style and I absolutely love reading her stories. They include romance and humor and some very quirky characters! Finding Cinderella was such a story...the first encounter of Daniel, hiding in a school maintenance closet and having Cinderella fall on him and interrupt his solitude was hysterical. And both he and Cinderella were happy to play a make believe love story within the hour they spent together.
Hoover's characters are refreshingly unique and awesome. Somehow, with every book of hers that I read, I fall in love with them all.....except maybe the antagonists...and even they serve their purposes well.
If you haven't read Colleen Hoover yet, you really should try it for yourself. Everything I have read of hers thus far has been a pure delight!
I rated this short Novella a 5 Wink read!
