For me to continue reading this book I can t believe that people call this a romance It s not a romance it s a horror story A horror story that glorifies kidnapping and abuse This book is exactly the type of The Real Lincoln: A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War fairy tale that I love the most Now I know that I have been outspoken in the past about my dislike ofantasies Experiencing the Resurrection: The Everyday Encounter That Changes Your Life featuring caveman bad boy type hero characters However I think that I know and respect dozens of women who melt in the presence of these guys Do I look down on myriends or their antasy preferences Absolutely not because guess what We all have a antasy weakness We all have that certain airy tale that bypasses every logical part of our brains and just makes us Babes in Toyland: The Making and Selling of a Rock and Roll Band feel giddy and excited So you can safely assume that mine is decidedly not the perfect specimen territorial alpha male This book keys into theairy tale that s always turned me into a puddle of goo He s ugly but only on the outside of course a bit ruthless desperate smart and he has one hell of a library Except that in this book he s comfortable in his own skin and he doesn t turn into a The Meaning of Star Trek foppish effeminate prince in the end which is what I always wished would happen This book is not going to go down in history as one of the greatest works of all time but I caneasibly see myself re reading it whenever I need a bit of comfort It s like the literary euivalent of a grilled cheese sandwich I was completely drawn in by the prologue and by the time the intelligent practical and resourceful heroine Kate and her plucky little sister Emily run into the Goblin King Marak I knew that this would become a Mirage: Napoleon's Scientists and the Unveiling of Egypt favorite of mine Marak is the ruler of a colorful dangerous race of goblins dwarves and elves who live within Hollow Hill It is a long and traditional practiceor the Goblin King to steal a human or elf bride and imprison her underground until the next King is born and his people are secure When Kate inherits Hollow Hill after her ather s death she and her sister become the wards of two elderly great aunts and a shady pretentious cousin Kate and her sister soon catch the eye of the Goblin King but Kate is revolted and determined to escape his grasp at all costsAs Kate and Marak engage in a battle of wills and wits this book actually began to remind me of Pride and Prejudice These two characters have a lot of preconceived notions and ideas about each other and their verbal sparring is charged and exhilarating Here is one of my avorite scenes Indeed it is Kate Marak agreed It s time to plan your revenge Goblins just adore revenge He grinned Do you have anything in mind Kate was taken aback Revenge is wrong she told him solemnly Vengeance belongs to God The goblin put his head to one side and watched her through narrowed eyes You won t even give God a little help he asked softly Kate is independent and powerful but not unrealistically so She s a proper Englishwoman who reacts in realistic ways to her surroundings and the hideous goblin court And by the end of this book she Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Walt Disney World fits the specsor all of my avorite emale heroines she s determined powerful a bit merciless and bloodthirsty and she has a sword plus the most entertaining magical charm aroundMy only thirty year old woman type gripe is that this book despite being what I would class as a romance novel is clean enough to give to a ten year old Which is actually great Dump Truck Trouble/Lets Build a Doghouse! for when my daughters get a bit older but the lack of anything even mildly suggestiveelt like a big gaping omission to mePerfect Musical PairingJoshua Radin The Fear You Won t FallThis sugary sweet song is not something that I like to listen to all the time but it s a definite comfort Sometime After Midnight food songor me This is a song about Stop Inflammation Now!: A Step-By-Step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation--The Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related Conditions falling harder than you thought you couldor someone who may or may not love you backAlso seen on The Readventurer Although I may have liked this book in my youth as an adult I Eyes Behind the Lines: L Company Rangers in Vietnam, 1969 found it rather repellentA young woman is coerced into marrying the Goblin King Lord Bumping it up to 5 stars because I ve read this YAantasy again and again Each time I like it She couldn t move or speak though she was vaguely aware the ugly creature was watching her with concern From page one I was captivated by this award winning School Dazed fantasy writtenor adolescents With only a ew hugs and kisses it is unexceptional but beware the creepy dark magic in the last chapters where view spoileran evil sorcerer mutilates animals and even people ugh "hide spoiler This is a wonderful different kind of YA antasy set in Victorian times in England It takes the "spoiler This is a wonderful different kind of YA Chinese Fairy Tales Fantasies: Folio Society Edition fantasy set in Victorian times in England It takes the trope goblin kings kidnap beautiful girls marry them and they never see the light of day again and twists it Goblins are lovable even if ugly and um prone to kidnapping womenor their wives You don t need to marry a handsome prince And it s done in a way that s honest and appealing the story has a great sense of humor but doesn t pull any punchesKate the main character who becomes the object of the goblin king s attention is one of my Old Haunts favorite young woman protagonists ever brave resourceful caring and intelligent She does an amazing job of battlingor her reedom and her rights against both her guardian who s supposed to protect her but doesn t and the goblins The goblin king Marak accomplishes the almost impossible task of making me believe he s worthy of alling in love with when he s got several major strikes against him Girls may swoon when they see him but it s because his Cooking for Company: All the Recipes You Need for Simple, Elegant Entertaining at Home face causes horror rather than ecstasy and he s often brutal and pitiless But he s also highly intelligent and considerate when it doesn t interfere with his duties as goblin king He has a great resonant voice and a sense of humor and is a natural leader I thought the author was uite brave to even attempt this relationship and she pulls it off amazingly wellMy only real beef with this book is view spoilerI really wanted to read about how Kate and Marak s relationship grewrom grudging respect on Kate s part to love For some reason Clare Dunkle chose to take about a year and a half leap orward in time totally skipping over that part of the story So if you read books or the tender kissing moments you ll be disappointed There s almost none of that hide spoiler.

(Barbie) for love and ended up hating the book hating Marak and hating Kate s helpless and hopelessness There are books that I don t like but veryew of them do I hate Not only did I hate this book I hated it with such a iery passion I m surprised the pages didn t erupt into lamesIt started off with so much potential which is what got me hooked at Wish Upon a Wedding first I loved Kate because she started off as a strong well rounded character She could be lady like and she hadear but at the same time she didn t let her We Got the Neutron Bomb: The Untold Story of L.A. Punk fear paralyze her I loved how atirst she stubbornly refused to marry the awful goblin king even to the point of bashing her head against a tree to knock herself unconcious I even respected her or agreeing to marry him if he released her sister when she thought he kidnapped her because I assumed she would "Find A Way To Get "a way to get of her promise an issue I ll complain about laterObviously that wasn t the caseI read a couple reviews to understand why people could like the monstrosity of a story and many people said this was a beauty and the beast type of tale Ok ine But I Richard Nixon: The Life felt that Marak could have been drop dead handsome and I still would have hated his guts People misinterpreted his attempts to keep Kate safe and his willingness to help her save Em as loveor Kate No it wasn t out of love it was because he was willing to do anything to get her to marry him so she could have his baby Ok so maybe he I Am Cow, Hear Me Moo! fell in love with her but the whole reason he needed her was to produce a male heir Please excuse me while I roll myeminist eyes Now I m all or the idea of hating someone at irst then Puppet Master falling in love with them I ve seen and read Pride and Prejudice times than I can remember But I truly believe the only reason Kate grew to accept her new life and love her husband and baby is all a result of Stockholm Syndrome Since the author made it impossibleor Kate to Swoon: The Heartthrob Activity Book for Good Color-Inners as Well as Beginners find an out in her new life whether it be by means of esacpe or any kind of death obviously Kate wasn t going to spend the rest of her life resenting her husband even though sheucking should have The whole basis of their relationship was Janae (Blacktop, for her to be a captured bridebaby mamma against her willWhich is why theact that they all that talk about how she chose this life because she agreed to marry him if he helped her sister was complete and utter bullshit She was playing the roll of a dutiful older sister Of course she would agree to do anything to help save Em Besides if Em hadn t been kidnapped Marak would have captured Kate anyway In act he came damn well close to doing so and would have succeeded if she hadn t ought him loudly enough or her gaurdian to hear the struggleI can t lie I skimmed over all that crap at the end with the sorcerer because I was so mad at that point that it was actually PAINFULL.

If you had asked me just last year I would have told you I didn t have a avorite North fairy tale I grew up hating Snow White and while I adored nearly every Cinderella movie re telling I d seen the original story was not among myavorites at all As a child I never actually saw Beauty and the Beast or read the book until one ated French cla I well The beginning is creepy in a good way The end is creepy in a bad wayThe beginning has a sense of danger rom a goblin menace The end is some sort of apologia Dead Giveaway for rape abduction and Stockholm SyndromeThis book just kinda grosses me out I ll post auller review later but my immediate thoughts are I m honestly not sure how to rate this My experience of reading this book would get it Andrew Lost In the Kitchen five stars I loved the writing the settings the characters and the magic I loved the words and sentences so much that I couldn t read uickly I had to savor everything about how it s put together It s both charming and clever and all of the characters show a spunk and ingenuity that just delighted me and constantly surprised me I wanted to read this aloud to everyone on the train I really enjoyed reading it So what s the problem Well this is a love story A love story about a girl who is chosen by the Goblin King to be his next wife Not because he knows anything much about her mind you but basically because she happens to be the only girl of age living in his territory And she is given no choice in the matter There are someeeble reasons offered as to why Goblin Kings all have to have unwilling brides but they don t hold much water The wives of Goblin Kings are never allowed to see their Strange Son: Two Mothers, Two Sons, and the Quest to Unlock the Hidden World of Autism families again they are also never let above ground again but must spend the rest of their lives in the goblin caverns Again there seems to be no particularly good reasonor this as the goblins themselves seem to go above ground at will and there are plenty of spells available to prevent the Wife Nope from running away It s just cruelty And to amplify the problem we all live in a real world whereBoko Haram stole nearly 300 girls last year girls who have beenorced into marriage with men who apparently can t get wives any other way girls who despite the best rescue efforts by Nigeria and its allies may never be Rejected Rejected Rejected found and may never see theiramilies again A real world where every year I read in the paper about men who have grabbed young girls and women off the streets in the USA and kept those women hostage as sex slaves in their basements or in their backyards In a world like this the captive wife love story strikes me as a little too real and absolutely appalling Granted that the book was published ten years ago but the author herself points out in the text that this stuff has happened to women and girls throughout all of history And IMO there is no way to put a good spin on this kind of horrible story Maybe some of these guys treat their Listening: The Last Poems of Margaret Avison female slaves decently asiderom the whole slavery thing But I do not think women should Good Things Happen Slowly: A Life in and Out of Jazz fall in love with these creeps It s just not romantic at all to me So this book was a really great readive stars with a really terrible message negative stars I enjoyed it but at the same time it s made me incredibly angry There is no way I could recommend this story to anyone in its target age group It s too confusing And I Buck: A Memoir for one don t want any girls I know even entertaining the idea that guys like this might be lovable Barf This book THIS BOOK You know those books that come along every once in a while that you utterlyall in love with to the point of hugging them THIS BOOK The last occasion I can pinpoint such a reaction was my reading of Howl s Moving Castle so yes this is BIG NEWS There s just something about Clare B Dunkle s writing that is simultaneously starkly real and utterly charming it hits the heart in ways that so Oh, the Things They Invented!: All About Great Inventors few books have the power to do no matter how wonderful their stories may be Inact I knew after one paragraph this was going to be among my Yikes, Vikings! (Canadian Flyer Adventures Series favorite books She had never screamed before not when she overturned the rowboat and almost drowned not when the ivy broke and she crashed into the shrubbery below not even when Lightfoot bucked her off and sheelt her leg break underneath her with an agonizing crunch She hadn t even known that she could Screaming was Lizzy s job and Lizzy was terribly good at it But now she screamed long and loud with all her breathAnd that s just the prologue In Five Days Left fact the particular characters involved in that paragraph aren t even living by the time The Hollow Kingdom truly gets started and yet I knew this book would speak to my heartAt its core The Hollow Kingdom is a retelling of one of myavorite tales Beauty and the Beast It has all of the bare bone elements of that story that we are Searching for Robert Johnson familiar with and yet somehow becomes its ownully Blood on Silk fledged tale of perseverance love andeminism Yes it is a small book at 240 pages aimed toward Middle Grade readers but like my beloved Frances Hardinge Clare B Dunkle writes Buzz: A Graphic Reality Check for Teens Dealing With Drugs and Alcohol for an ageless audience bringing a maturity and depth to the pages that will be appreciated by countless readersWhat struck me about this Beauty and the Beast retelling is that it s not about our Beauty Kate being locked away with the Beast Marak the goblin King and slowlyalling or him as he inevitably returns to "a handsome state of being It is about Kate s persistent resistance to Marak s propositions and slow realization that "handsome state of being It is about Kate s persistent resistance to Marak s propositions and slow realization that can wear human aces as well as kind souls can be hidden behind terrible By the Lake of Sleeping Children features Kate is a character who refuses to be robbed of herree will even as those around her attempt to make her decisions Bill Carey Rides West/The Town No Guns Could Tame/Bowdrie Rides a Coyote Trail for her while Marak is a creature who remains as inhumanly ugly as he is inhumanly rude but whose honesty and careor his people earns our love regardlessKate is innocent but she is not stupid an important distinction that is too often blurred in young people In her world it is easy to assume that those meant to protect you will and that those ugly things that come to steal you at night are Erano guerrieri foul and loathsome but she doesn t let herself be taken in by either As the guardians of Kate and her little sister Emily slowly back her into a corner she begins.
