5 Thoughts on Waltz into the Waves

1. Aww, that was adorable! ^_^ I had actually read this once before, a couple years ago, and remember vaguely liking it, but I decided to reread and review it, and I absolutely loved it this time! ^_^

2. Told in first person (I’m not sure if I’ve read a tale by Miss Holman written in first person, before?), about Amelia (the Cinderella character) and her friend Alex (the charming fellow who occasionally lives next door), it covers a lot of ground and time surprisingly quickly.

3. I don’t mind magical fairytales but this one did the Cinderella story without a magical fairy godmother and some of the other trappings of the original story, while still being recognizably Cinderella-ish. Featuring an awesome castle (loved the descriptions!), a lovely masked ball, and sea-side scenes too. There are some tough scenes but so much adorableness as well. 🙂

4. I loved the hero, Alex, who was epic, charming, and kind, genuinely caring about Amelia; he was great! Plus, their relationship had some super sweet moments! 🙂 *hugs little tale*

5. Overall, this is a very brief but absolutely sweet little short story, a touching and romantic retelling of Cinderella. I read it in like twenty minutes, so it was very short, but packed so much in despite that. I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite Cinderella tale ever, but I’m giving it 5 stars all the same because overall I just adored it! ❤

  1. I’ve seen this one floating around. It looks super cute!!! I just love how the story of Cinderella is told in SO many different ways. It works as a fairytale, it works as a contemporary, it works as just…anything at all! And I think that’s so fun!

    Anyways! This story sounds totally adorbz. I may need to try it sometime. ^_^
