    1. I must admit--my favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast, but Cinderella is a very, very close second. I love the idea of someone rising up from where she's been forced to be in a positive and selfless way. This retelling is one of the best I've read and one of my new favorites.One thing that's tricky with retellings is to stay close enough to the original that the reader is engaged, yet put enough twists and spins on it to make it unique. Ms. Peaslee masters that quite well. The familiar el [...]

    2. I am a big fan of Cinderella retellings and jumped at the chance to review this one, besides isn’t that cover gorgeous? Very intriguing and has the feel of a fairytale. I connected with Ella right away and found myself rooting for her throughout the book. She is a likable heroine who goes through a lot of growth throughout the course of the book. While I like retellings, I love when an author takes a familiar story and really makes it their own. Adding their own touches to a classic, makes for [...]

    3. ***4.5 stars***This is a sweet re-telling of Cinderella with a twist. I love the Cinderella story, but when an author can change it up a bit and add their own imagination to the story, it makes it new and exciting."Ella" is well written with great characters. I love how the story moves along without a boring moment. The pacing is wonderful. Ella has a great voice, I loved reading the book from her perspective. Will is the boy next door who has always been there to help and support her. Everyone [...]

    4. So, there are lots of fairy-tale retellings for Cinderella, and of course, I was interested in reading another one. There are some great ones and this version is now one of my personal favorites!All the basic ingredients are there: Ella's mother died when she was young, her father remarried and has also now died, Victoria is the evil stepmother and Mabel and Cecilia are the two self-absorbed stepsisters. There is a ball where Prince Kenton is hoping to find a wife as he is in a bit of a hurry to [...]

    5. If I were to write a Cinderella story, this is exactly what I would have written! Being my favorite fairy tale (cliche, I know), I've always had my peeves in parts of the story. Each of those was addressed in this re-telling and made me quite satisfied. While I adore Ella Enchanted and her reasons for obedience, I liked that this book was very realistic and her reasons were ones that every person can relate to. Ella starts as a good character, but with flaws. Again, like any regular person. She [...]

    6. Simply awful. Couldn't make it past the second chapter. Chapter One opens with Ella lounging in the muck dangling her feet in the pond as she watches the sun slowly rise. Why is she hanging out in a pond before sunrise? Because her bed on the ground was TOO COLD so she got up to gather berries (for several hours in the dark) and then decided to dangle her feet in the pond for a while. Because, y'know, floors are cold but ponds aren't. The MOMENT the sun rises, she notices her buddy fishing nearb [...]

    7. Ella was a beautiful, unique, and delightful re-imagining of the classic Cinderella fairy tale. I’ve always loved a good Cinderella story as I adore the idea of someone rising from their difficult circumstances due to their goodness and positive outlook, and Ella's journey in this story was no exception. This was one of the rougher Cinderella tellings I’ve read, but its hope, strength, growth, and heart more than makes up for it. It was heartbreaking experiencing Ella's journey and her many [...]

    8. I have always favored Cinderella tales and retellings and Jessilyn Stewart Peaslee has written a splendid and delightful twist on this beautiful story. As always there is the evil step-mother and step-sisters and Ella must take care of them, even when they are so cruel to her that she can hardly stand it. Throughout the story, you will fall in love with Ella Blakeley’s determination and perseverance to survive and press on as she discovers her own self-worth. The many excellent characters in t [...]

    9. I love the cover of this book, the title is a little overused and the little blurp on the cover gives way too much away. Saying on the cover "The shoe fits but she may not want it back", I knew what would happen before I opened it and this hurt the book for me. The first half of this story was so depressing. One of the roughest Cinderella retelling I have read, but it was worth it in the end. This isn't just your normal Cinderella story it is about a young woman who is treated harshly by some an [...]

    10. Sigh such a lovely story. Ella was one of those people who should have angel wings. She is kind, hard working, and forgiving. She also doesn't complain or tell how bad her step mother is. I thought she should have just refused to come here when here mother called her to be beaten, but she finally decided she had had enough when her step mother was ill and she could see she had some power over her. All in all, Will was the best choice, but the prince seemed like a pretty nice guy. Hard decision. [...]

    11. Ella is resourceful and has purpose behind her obedience.Ella Blakely works as a servant in her own home, ever since the death of her beloved father Henry. She has chosen to stay, despite the abuse from her stemother Victoria, and stepsisters Cecilia and Mabel, because of a promise to her father on his deathbed--that she would take care of them. She knows that he had no idea how bad things would get, but she still honors the promise and the man. She also stays because Ashfield is her home and ha [...]

    12. An enjoyable Cinderella story retelling! Peaslee made it her own, adding twists to the story. She also packed in some good food for thought; life lessons and encouragement!

    13. This was such a lovely retelling. It's different, but in a way that brings more heart to the original story. Ella is a story of kindness, courage, forgiveness, and love. It was such a beautiful story that I hope all of my daughters will read! I can't wait to read Jess's other books!

    14. There are some negative reviews for books that I did not finish that I relish writing but not this one. I could tell a lot of care and crafting had gone into the story but I just struggled with reading it--from the first page. I scan-read (skimmed) from nearly the first word. Not a good sign. Because of that scan-reading--had I actually finished the book--this book would have ultimately warranted two stars minimum. I made it to page 111 (out of 230) and just could not make myself push forward on [...]

    15. I have a blog tour post coming up for the second book in this series, so I thought I should probably put this review up as well. When the description says you will not be able to put it down, it's true. I started late Friday evening, and went into the morning because I couldn't put it down. I devoured this book.I love re-tellings when they are done well, and this one is done very well. Cinderella is one of my all time favorite stories, so I knew when I opened the book I was in for the long haul. [...]

    16. I love retellings, especially Cinderella ones, so I was very excited to get the opportunity to read this book for review.The main character was immediately likable and I was rooting for her throughout the book. There were some great twists to the story, which I think are necessary for retellings, but I won't say any more about them in case it spoils it for you.The ending was perfect, so sweet and wonderful! I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good retelling or just YA romance in gener [...]

    17. Fun re-telling of Cinderella. The cruel manner in which her step family treated her was really sad and heartbreaking. There was a time when I didn't love this book because I was afraid that the author was saying that Ella was kind because she put up with the abuse so well and that worried me because kindness does not equal accepting and submitting to abuse. But then the book got better, and Ella did start standing up for herself and finding her strength. I loved the love story. I was rooting for [...]

    18. 4.5 stars for this book!! I started this book expecting to read something similar to Ella Enchanted- a favorite of mine- but it definitely wasn't the same at all. The story is a version of Cinderella, but I absolutely loved the twists and surprises the author put into it. Ella is such a great protagonist, full of courage and sweet to the core. I loved seeing her interactions with her friend Will, as well as the insight and depth the author provided for Ella's relationship with her step family. A [...]

    23. I realized how well this book took me through the experiences with the character by the overwhelming satisfaction I got after finishing the final pages. As I read, I had the impression the book was a light read and a charming well told story that explored interesting themes of resilience, character in adversity, and forgiveness - perfect for a Cinderella retelling. However, as I finished the last pages, the feeling of fulness and completion were a surprising witness that the book had taken me on [...]
