Book Summary:

It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?


I love both fairy tale retellings and twisted fairy tales so this one was right up my alley.  I think my favorite thing about this story was the sheer amount of fairy tales that the author referenced or tied into the story line.  I thought this would be a simple retelling for The Princess and the Frog but there ended up being more depth to the story.  The characters lives are all woven together and honestly it was a little confusing at times but by the end of the book I was satisfied and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

If you are looking for a clean unique twisted tale give Enchanted a try.
