Happy Thursday everyone,
This is a meme started by a good friend of mine Alex@YoungatHearts, and it seemed fun.
If&Then Thursdays is a book meme created by Alex@ Young at Heart Books. How do you participate? It’s easy! All you have to do is choose two books that are somewhat related in theme, writing style, genre, etc. Tell us how they are similar and why we would like them! All recommendations should be made in this format:
“If you like Book A, then you might enjoy Book B”
If you liked:
A fairy tale retelling set in a sci fi world, in which I would describe as Star Wars meets Disney. It has a great cast of characters, great world building and it does a good job at retelling these fairy tales.
Than you might like:
While this was one of my cover buys, I still really liked the book. It was a retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with a little but of Game of Thrones in there.
Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.
In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.
But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.
Why: Both a fairy tale retelling. One is set in a futuristic fantasy world, while the other is set within a high fantasy world. As a Disney fan, I could always love a good fairy tale retelling and these two books are very good if you are a fan of Disney, or if you like a science fiction and fantasy books.
