Disappointing

I was reeled in by the clever premise of whatever happened to Cinderella after she married the Prince, but it quickly became obvious that this type of story is just not for me. Witches and Fairies and talking animals and magic spells are just too far removed from my interests. It reminded me a lot of “Son of a Witch” in that way; a book I equally disliked.

The narration just made it worse - like listening to an overly dramatic and immature tween reading her diary. Drivel.

Needless to say I am not going to bother with the rest of the series!

Ehh...

I tried really hard to get into this book. I liked the idea of it, and I really wanted to like it. I'm not sure if it's the format, or the story itself, but it was just boring to me. I'd find myself spaced out and thinking about what I was going to make for dinner instead of listening to the story. The narration was decent, though. I like the girls voice and it was the only thing I did like.

A strange sequel to Cinderella

What happens after happily ever after? Lost turns the story of Cinderella on its heals with an unhappy future for the couple.

Sometimes when listening to a book it’s difficult to know if the issue is with the narrator of the audiobook or the character they are narrating. Whichever is the case, I found myself not liking the Cinderella in this book. I found her voice too perky, and her character weak, and unappreciative. However, the last hour or two of the book things changed, Cinderella finally grew a spine, and the fairy godmother showed “her” true colors.

There is a historical spin the author chose to put on the story that really doesn’t work. He named Cinderella as Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (Sophia Charlotte) the wife of King George III. This is clearly not historical fiction as a quick read up in the real Charlotte reveals she is nothing like this Cinderella. She was the daughter of a duke who met her husband on her wedding day and apparently had a good marriage until George’s decent into madness. The couple had fifteen children. Fifteen children!

This book is appropriate for YA and adult readers. I’d recommend teens and above.

The narrator’s voice, while too perky for my taste, is clear, and she does a decent job with different characters.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Enjoyable read

This was a promo, and it has no bearing on my volentary review. I did not like Cinderella at first, she annoyed me. By the end however I was enchanted by her character. I recommend you enjoy this story.

Fantastic

I received this book for free at my request but the opinion is of my own. I really loved and enjoyed this book. It’s definitely interesting to see what could happen to Cinderella after she married the prince. Was there really a happily ever after? Does she ever see her fairy godmother again? Does she end up having a family of her own? Travel to see her adventures and the finding of herself.

Sad tale.

I have had the opportunity to read and listen to the first book of the Cinderella’s Secret Witch Diaries. When I picked up the book back in 2018 I just wanted to see the author take on the after the fairy tale romance. What I got was one splendid fantasy. Cinderella is facing the destruction of her fairy tale it was so sad to read but I like how the author played it out. I have book two now to listen too also so I am looking forward to seeing how the tale progresses. High praise for the narrator she did an excellent job!

What happens after Happily Ever After?

What happens after Happily Ever After? After Cinderella marries her prince, life is not as perfect as she had hoped. After the initial magical attraction wears off, Cinderella finds herself lonely and in fear that she will be abandoned.
The book is written as a diary and letter to her fairy godmother. It is an interesting premise, quite unique and clever the way magic is involved in a very different way. However, I found all the explanations at the start are a bit boring and didn't really enjoy the diary format. The narrator was quite good though a little saccharine sweet for me.

Happily ever after Not!!!

Happily ever after is not to be for Cinderella. Her prince is a jerk, Her Mother-in-law is an ugly person and while reading this book, Although written well, I wished I did not know what happened after the wedding. If you want to keep the fantasy of happily ever after alive, do not read this book. If you would like to see a very different slant on what happens in Cindy's life, read this book.
