Cinderfella by Kristy Brown – Review by Emily Walsh

By: Kristy Brown
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cinderfella by Kristy Brown was a sweet, entertaining reverse fairytale retelling, that stole my heart.

I love fairytale retellings, and this one wasn’t only unique but it was fresh, modern, and had all the magic of the original. The only thing that I think would have made this story all the more amazing, an epilogue. Just a little something to us know, that their dreams came true.

I will say that this book is a little darker then your normal sugar sweet retelling, and I like that little bit of a twist. There was just something about them that made me root for them. I loved how is wasn’t just love at first sight, they connected, spent time together, and actually developed proper feelings for one another. The ball at the end was a nice nod, and I loved the entrance scene, I got chills!

Overall this book is a wonderful retelling that will play on that childhood nostalgia. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that, you will fall head over heels for this fuzzy read.

Happy Reading

She’s running from her title and a man she doesn’t love.
He’s just a farm boy who dreams of becoming more.
She has all the luxuries in the world but is never truly happy.
He is forced to sleep in a barn and treated like a slave.
She just wants to be invisible; he just wants to be seen
When their two worlds collide, can they really live out their perfect dream?
Throw in a hint of magic, a glass slipper and a ball.
Add two nasty stepbrothers and then just maybe, love can conquer all.


I’m Kristy and I live in the U.K. I have always written short stories and poetry. I went to university to study acting which I loved, but my real passion has always been writing. So now I write the kind of stories I would have wanted to read as a teen. “Kiera’s Quest-Awakenings” is my first e-book. There are four in the teen fantasy series, ‘Sacrifices,’ ‘Perceptions,’ and ‘Choices.'( Muse It Up Publishing.)
My YA contemporary romance book, “Just Sam,” Is available on Amazon in print & on Kindle as is my YA fairy tale retelling, ‘Cinderfella.’
“Summer’s End,” a YA Paranormal romance series, published again with ‘Muse It Up Publishing.’ This title’s also available in print and e-book. I’m currently editing the second book to this series. I have a joint YouTube channel, ‘TWO WORDY.’ We discuss books, writing, movies etc. I love reading YA angels, vamps etc. I love my kids and hopefully one day they will enjoy my crazy tales!
