    ? Oh, dear! This is the mind-blowing tale, fairy or not, that I've always wanted to get my hands on. I've never been one for the Cinderella story. It just never felt absolutely right. So, she becomes the future queen, what's she gonna do next? This is rehashing the original, ...

    All the Ever Afters is realistically refreshing! It is captivating and emotional. With a unique twist on a classic faerie tale villain, this one is sure to impress! When I saw the synopsis for this one, I was immediately drawn in. Heartless by Marissa Meyer went to my mind, and I wa...

    A soulful, gut-wrenching, dark and disturbing retelling of Cinderella. It reminded me of Fairest by Marissa Meyer, another step-mother origin story. Like Fairest it was morbid and oft times sickening but I was entranced and couldn?t stop. Unlike Fairest, it was more real, mature and ...

    2.5 stars This wasn't the book for me. The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because of the quality of the writing. The story itself bored me to death. I wanted to read this because I love fairy tale retellings. The story of Cinderella's stepmother seemed interesting. I thought I...

    What?s a good novel for if not to whisk us away from every day life and transport us to another place and time, a chance to escape and be entertained by way of a captivating tale. ?All the Ever Afters? delivers in spades! Danielle Teller?s well crafted, fresh new take on an old...

    DNF at around halfway The main problem with this one is that there wasn't any point to it? In most books there is a point and something the main character wants to achieve, but in this one there was nothing. It was just the background of Cinderella's step mother, but nothing that t...

    ? Oh, dear! This is the mind-blowing tale, fairy or not, that I've always wanted to get my hands on. I've never been one for the Cinderella story. It just never felt absolutely right. So, she becomes the future queen, what's she gonna do next? This is rehashing the original, ...

    A soulful, gut-wrenching, dark and disturbing retelling of Cinderella. It reminded me of Fairest by Marissa Meyer, another step-mother origin story. Like Fairest it was morbid and oft times sickening but I was entranced and couldn?t stop. Unlike Fairest, it was more real, mature and ...

    What?s a good novel for if not to whisk us away from every day life and transport us to another place and time, a chance to escape and be entertained by way of a captivating tale. ?All the Ever Afters? delivers in spades! Danielle Teller?s well crafted, fresh new take on an old...

    DNF at around halfway The main problem with this one is that there wasn't any point to it? In most books there is a point and something the main character wants to achieve, but in this one there was nothing. It was just the background of Cinderella's step mother, but nothing that t...

    A beautiful retelling of Cinderella , from the step mother?s perspective.Cinderella was always one of my favourite fairy tales , so i was excited to read it from the Step mother?s POV. As i started the story i realised that i didn?t even know her name it was always ?the wicked...

    Wow! This was incredibly well done! A character typically villanized gets their own POV and every one in here has completely different characteristics and their own story. I also really appreciated the focus being on motherly love rather than a romantic love betrayal! ...

    ? Oh, dear! This is the mind-blowing tale, fairy or not, that I've always wanted to get my hands on. I've never been one for the Cinderella story. It just never felt absolutely right. So, she becomes the future queen, what's she gonna do next? This is rehashing the original, ...

    A soulful, gut-wrenching, dark and disturbing retelling of Cinderella. It reminded me of Fairest by Marissa Meyer, another step-mother origin story. Like Fairest it was morbid and oft times sickening but I was entranced and couldn?t stop. Unlike Fairest, it was more real, mature and ...

    Oh did I enjoy this read! Having it come between so many modern ambitious, word sodden, and often times pretentious reads, both fiction and non-fiction, how very refreshing. Yes, there is sickness, poverty of material and experience, often ignorant or narrow minded characters, and ...

    What?s a good novel for if not to whisk us away from every day life and transport us to another place and time, a chance to escape and be entertained by way of a captivating tale. ?All the Ever Afters? delivers in spades! Danielle Teller?s well crafted, fresh new take on an old...

    DNF at around halfway The main problem with this one is that there wasn't any point to it? In most books there is a point and something the main character wants to achieve, but in this one there was nothing. It was just the background of Cinderella's step mother, but nothing that t...

    Fresh and ferocious, ALL THE EVER AFTERS is the best fairy tale retelling I've ever read. Wholly original, Teller took the Cinderella story we know and love and flipped the script. With strong themes about society's view on physical beauty and even stronger prose, I devoured each chapt...

    DNF @ 12% I don't think this a bad book at all, but it's everything I personally don't like in fantasy. - kingdom and court politics - formal language - marriage plots - infodumping of world / character backstory Not for me, unfortunately, but I wouldn't deter any fantasy f...

    RATING: 3 STARS (I received an ARC from the EDELWEISS) (Review Not on Blog) Listened to on Audio Retellings are always a hit or miss for me. I really enjoyed the film version of Ever After (about Cinderella) so I was excited to read this retelling of the stepmother's story. You a...

    Took everything think I thought I knew about Cinderella and turned it on it?s head! Great audio, too. ...

    I don?t usually seek out fairytale retellings, but All the Ever Afters attracted me for two reasons: 1. The cover. I admit I judge by a cover far too frequently, but this one is particularly gorgeous. It was told from the evil stepmother?s point of view. Although we have books ...

    A beautiful retelling of Cinderella , from the step mother?s perspective.Cinderella was always one of my favourite fairy tales , so i was excited to read it from the Step mother?s POV. As i started the story i realised that i didn?t even know her name it was always ?the wicked...

    Wow! This was incredibly well done! A character typically villanized gets their own POV and every one in here has completely different characteristics and their own story. I also really appreciated the focus being on motherly love rather than a romantic love betrayal! ...

    Many many thanks to William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for my free copy of ALL THE EVER AFTERS by Danielle Teller - all opinions are my own. I just love a good fairytale retelling and this book is just that! This is a unique take on the story of Cinderella and her ?evil? stepmoth...

    I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. I have recently enjoyed the influx of fairy-tale retellings and the tales that are told from a different point of view. I loved the movie that came out a few years ago, Maleficient, and of course one ...

    I absolutely love books that turn well known stories upside down. All the Ever Afters has the reader rooting for Agnus. We meet the "wicked stepmother" as a child and wesympathize with her difficult upbringing. Along the way key characters briefly pop in and since we know where the s...

    I am a sucker for a good Cinderella story but I did not expect this book to be this good! With a mix of historical fiction and strong, empowering female lead this book was my cup tea. Cherry on top the cover art is beautiful. ...

    ? Oh, dear! This is the mind-blowing tale, fairy or not, that I've always wanted to get my hands on. I've never been one for the Cinderella story. It just never felt absolutely right. So, she becomes the future queen, what's she gonna do next? This is rehashing the original, ...

    4.5 stars! RTC A really impressive historically-grounded novel that really surprised me with how much I enjoyed it; I loved the presentation of gender and social roles. I also love Agnes, my clever Slytherin child. ...

    All the Ever Afters is realistically refreshing! It is captivating and emotional. With a unique twist on a classic faerie tale villain, this one is sure to impress! When I saw the synopsis for this one, I was immediately drawn in. Heartless by Marissa Meyer went to my mind, and I wa...

    A soulful, gut-wrenching, dark and disturbing retelling of Cinderella. It reminded me of Fairest by Marissa Meyer, another step-mother origin story. Like Fairest it was morbid and oft times sickening but I was entranced and couldn?t stop. Unlike Fairest, it was more real, mature and ...

    2.5 stars This wasn't the book for me. The only reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because of the quality of the writing. The story itself bored me to death. I wanted to read this because I love fairy tale retellings. The story of Cinderella's stepmother seemed interesting. I thought I...

    THIS BOOK IS NOT (strictly speaking) FANTASY. All the Ever Afters is a thoughtful reimagining of the characters from Cinderella as real people in a real medieval setting. The plot has a nested structure, with the familiar details of the fairy tale embedded in the longer rags-to-ric...

    Thank you to Edelweiss, William Morrow and Danielle Teller for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Rating 3.5 stars There are always two sides to every story and ?All The Ever Afters? wants you to hear Cinderella?s evil stepmother?s perspective. Was she always evil?...

    Oh did I enjoy this read! Having it come between so many modern ambitious, word sodden, and often times pretentious reads, both fiction and non-fiction, how very refreshing. Yes, there is sickness, poverty of material and experience, often ignorant or narrow minded characters, and ...

    What?s a good novel for if not to whisk us away from every day life and transport us to another place and time, a chance to escape and be entertained by way of a captivating tale. ?All the Ever Afters? delivers in spades! Danielle Teller?s well crafted, fresh new take on an old...

    DNF at around halfway The main problem with this one is that there wasn't any point to it? In most books there is a point and something the main character wants to achieve, but in this one there was nothing. It was just the background of Cinderella's step mother, but nothing that t...

    Fresh and ferocious, ALL THE EVER AFTERS is the best fairy tale retelling I've ever read. Wholly original, Teller took the Cinderella story we know and love and flipped the script. With strong themes about society's view on physical beauty and even stronger prose, I devoured each chapt...

    DNF @ 12% I don't think this a bad book at all, but it's everything I personally don't like in fantasy. - kingdom and court politics - formal language - marriage plots - infodumping of world / character backstory Not for me, unfortunately, but I wouldn't deter any fantasy f...

    RATING: 3 STARS (I received an ARC from the EDELWEISS) (Review Not on Blog) Listened to on Audio Retellings are always a hit or miss for me. I really enjoyed the film version of Ever After (about Cinderella) so I was excited to read this retelling of the stepmother's story. You a...

    Took everything think I thought I knew about Cinderella and turned it on it?s head! Great audio, too. ...

    I don?t usually seek out fairytale retellings, but All the Ever Afters attracted me for two reasons: 1. The cover. I admit I judge by a cover far too frequently, but this one is particularly gorgeous. It was told from the evil stepmother?s point of view. Although we have books ...

    A beautiful retelling of Cinderella , from the step mother?s perspective.Cinderella was always one of my favourite fairy tales , so i was excited to read it from the Step mother?s POV. As i started the story i realised that i didn?t even know her name it was always ?the wicked...

    Wow! This was incredibly well done! A character typically villanized gets their own POV and every one in here has completely different characteristics and their own story. I also really appreciated the focus being on motherly love rather than a romantic love betrayal! ...

    Took everything think I thought I knew about Cinderella and turned it on it?s head! Great audio, too. ...

    I don?t usually seek out fairytale retellings, but All the Ever Afters attracted me for two reasons: 1. The cover. I admit I judge by a cover far too frequently, but this one is particularly gorgeous. It was told from the evil stepmother?s point of view. Although we have books ...

    A beautiful retelling of Cinderella , from the step mother?s perspective.Cinderella was always one of my favourite fairy tales , so i was excited to read it from the Step mother?s POV. As i started the story i realised that i didn?t even know her name it was always ?the wicked...
