Talk about cute! Once Upon a Christmas was an adorable little collection of fairytale retellings. I was in need of something light and fun to read and thoroughly enjoyed each one of these stories. I liked that while each was inspired by an original fairytale, they still had their own unique twists to set them apart. I adore when fairytales are tweaked in ways that give them a bigger level of realism. As someone who was a fan of the show Once Upon a Time, it felt a bit similar to the Storybrook versions of the characters and that made it a lot of fun for me. I would easily recommend this collection of novella’s for a fun and entertaining read.
