Today I’m here with a spoiler free review of Cinderella is Dead, as part of the blog tour hosted by Faye Rogers PR and Bloomsbury UK! I’m so excited to be writing this as I loved this book and had been desperate to read it ever since I heard the synopsis. A feminist retelling of Cinderella? Sign me up, and keep reading for my review.
Title: Cinderella is Dead
Author: Kalynn Bayron
Publisher: Bloomsbury UK
Source: Gifted by the publisher
It’s 200 years after Cinderella found her prince, but the fairy tale is over. Teen girls are now required to appear at the Annual Ball, where the men of the kingdom select wives based on a girl’s display of finery. If a suitable match is not found, the girls not chosen are never heard from again.
Sixteen-year-old Sophia would much rather marry Erin, her childhood best friend, than parade in front of suitors. At the ball, Sophia makes the desperate decision to flee, and finds herself hiding in Cinderella’s mausoleum. There, she meets Constance, the last known descendant of Cinderella and her step sisters. Together they vow to bring down the king once and for all–and in the process, they learn that there’s more to Cinderella’s story than they ever knew . . .
