Book Review: UnEnchanted by Chanda Hahn

UnEnchanted (An Unfortunate Fairy Tale #1) by Chanda Hahn
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance/Fractured Fairy Tale)
Date Published: December 30, 2011
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Mina Grime is unlucky, unpopular and uncoordinated, that is until she saves her crush's life on a field trip, changing her High School status from loser to hero overnight. But with her newfound fame brings misfortune as an old family curse come to light. For Mina is descended from the Brothers Grimm and has inherited all of their unfinished fairy tale business. Which includes trying to outwit a powerful Story from making her its next fairytale victim.

To break the fairy tale curse on her family and stop these deadly events, Mina must finish the tales until the very Grimm end.

My Review:
UnEnchanted is the first book in the An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Series. I was completely swept up by this story. This was such a fun book to read. I enjoyed all the characters. They all play a part. Literally. And sometimes more than one part. I could really see Mina grow into her character as the plot thickened. Poor girl, she has such horrible luck. Now we know why. The Grimm Curse and the way the "Story" re-writes itself to fit the times and the situation made the reading experience unpredictable. Sure, we all know how the real fairy tales end, and even some of the alternate endings that have been passed down, but that all makes no difference in UnEnchanted. It all depends on what the "Story" wants. UnEnchanted is a little bit of a fairy tale, a little bit of a fairy tale re-telling, yet it's neither because it completely re-writes and changes everything making the original fairy tales almost unrecognizable. Do I even make sense? No, not really. That's why you must read it, because then you'll get what I'm saying.

UnEnchanted is FREE right now on Amazon!
