    Third book of the readathon.As with all collections of stories, there were some I liked than others, but really I m just glad to see collections of stories out there where people turn the usual, heteronormative fairytales into something new Catherynne M Valente s story stood out lyrical and enchanting, and sensual despite all the odd imagery It was a nice mix of fairytales, too I was aware of the origins of most of them, but there were some that are less well known, and some that were harder to [...]

    Sleeping Beauty, Indeed is a book of fairy tales, with the exception that the Damsels in Distress are into women rather than men Some of them are original stories, and others are lesbian versions of traditional fairytales The idea intrigued me, which is why I decided to read review it, and I m glad I did, as two of the stories really left an impression on me Also, it had the rather pleasant mild scent of apples.1 Two Sisters by R Holsen Rating 2 10 I didn t feel like I properly understood this o [...]

    This review refers to the hardback edition While a worthy effort, Sleeping Beauty, Indeed fell short of my expectations Some of the stories I was able to connect to its origins, others I had no clue I enjoyed one story that paired Cinderella with The Little Mermaid However though the title indicates Lesbian Fairytales, some stories are so vague on the sexuality between the characters that they wind up being a let down.As other reviewers have noted there are several typos within the book The titl [...]

    Bones of black sugar by Valente was a dark and rich Hansel and Gretel retelling, the best story of the collection The mute princess by aj grant was cute enough, I guess Frank fadella s fae story had an interesting thread re true names calling oneself a lesbian but it didn t go where I wanted it to go.Undertow was an interesting take on ugly stepsisters and recovery from abuse Coyote Kate could have been good but the virgin thing was off.

    I liked stories 2,3, and 4 Found it hard to finish after that, especially because I thought the title story was just awful So I m sleepy and I ve got mixed feelings the good ones were easily 4 stars but I was increasingly bored and irritated with the rest So 2.5 maybe

    Although this is a fairly slim book, all 10 of the stories in it are quite good Most re tell fairy tales of some kind, although perhaps I should correct that to folk tales , like the first one was The Mute Princess was the most classically re told of all of them, and the mannered style worked beautifully with the tale.The ending story was the least traditional based on the Pied Piper, it was set in the Old West, and was a lot of fun The title story was also fun we have a Fairy Godmother whingein [...]

    Two Sisters by R Holsen I didn t particularly like this.Bones Like Black Sugar Catherynne M Valente a hauntingly original sequel to Hansel and GretelThe Mute Princess A.J Grant This story is a beautiful retelling of a traditional Yemeni folktale I plan to check out her other works The Seduction and Secret Life of Deirdre Fallon Fran Fadella a fairy romanceSleeping Beauty, Indeed Regan M Wann a humorous retelling of Sleeping Beauty narrated by one of the fairiesFuture Fortunes Kori Aguirre Amador [...]

    Well written and haunting stories presenting fairytales in new skins, with lesbian protagonists Recommended

    Fairly enjoyable, except for the title tale, where Sleeping Beauty falls into her enchanted sleep because she got fisted Fisted.

    Some were just so darn romantic and dreamy You know, everything a fairy tale should be Then some were dark and twisty, they were good just not my cup of tea.

    4 poignant momentsWell, really, than 4 With only 1 1 2 exceptions these stories were excellent Very glad I stumbled across and read this.

    I thought this take on fairy tales was good, and would be something I would recommened you read Free through First Reads.
