My To-Be Read List #9

Posted November 9, 2013 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 7 Comments

I have SOOOOOOOOO many books on my TBR list 
I decided that instead of  keeping it to myself
I figured I would share with all of you. 
I put most of these books on for a reason,
some I have no idea why they are there 😉 
So lets chat…. 
maybe it’s a book you read and HATED 
or a book you LOVED and want me to read NOW 
or a book you never heard of. 
I figured… 
I will randomly pick one book each week to share with you 🙂 
So my school is almost over and I will have more time to promote all the great things happening on my blog, plus I am doing some serious damage to my To-Be Read list from not until Jan 1st and it might extend until Feb 1 so we will see. 
Since I want to get through a few awesome reads I think this feature will help me figure out what to read sooner rather than later.
This weeks pick is one that I really want to read but I have seen mixed reviews for it. My love for Fairytale retellings make me want to read this very soon
So this weeks book is

“The first kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own. The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair, plucked from youth and spirited away.”
This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon, Sophie has dreamed of being kidnapped into an enchanted world her whole life. With her pink dresses, glass slippers, and devotion to good deeds, she knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and graduate a storybook princess. Meanwhile Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks, wicked pet cat, and dislike of nearly everyone, seems a natural fit for the School for Evil.
But when the two girls are swept into the Endless Woods, they find their fortunes reversed—Sophie’s dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School For Good, thrust amongst handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication.. But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are…?
The School for Good & Evil is an epic journey into a dazzling new world, where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.
************************************************************

I absolutely LOVE the cover.
The Idea of a school for Fairytale Heros and Villains sounds amazing 
such a great idea to see were it all started maybe.
I usually don’t let reviews or ratings get to me but for some reason it makes me nervous that I will go into this book all excited only to be seriously being disappointed being a huge fan of retellings.
 So…. 
Have you heard of this book? 
Have you read it? 
If so is it something I should read soon or not read at all? 
Lets Chat 🙂
Thanks for stopping by this weeks My To Be Read List 
Check back next saturday for a new book!!

  1. Ok this is a Middle Grade that I must read. Not only do I adore the cover, but this concept is just too cool! It may be the book that breaks me into Middle Grade!

    • To get you into Middle Grade you have to read The Elsewhere series by Jacqueline West or The Keepers Series by Lian Tanner. The keepers got me into middle grade and then I read elsewhere right after and completely hooked.

  2. I think it falls in the category as upper Middle Grade and YA. I actually have this set to read maybe sometime next year. I want to at least try it since I have read mixed reviews for it
