My Review:

So when I read Rump I enjoyed it but I wasn’t really connecting with the characters. I did, however, love the story so when I saw Jack on Netgalley I had to grab it because I was looking forward to spending some time with Jack and his beanstalk. I wasn’t what I was expecting and I did enjoy the story, it was a really different telling of Jack but again, me and Jack weren’t connecting. Don’t get bummed just yet I did love his little sister Annabella, she is one tough cookie.

I liked all the characters and I felt that even with me not connecting with Jack the world build was well done and the story has a nice twist to it and how it worked. I even believe someone from Rump was in this book and when I really started thinking about it my mind pretty much EXPLODED!

Regardless of not connecting with Jack, I still thought this was a really fun retelling and enjoy the way she retells a fairytale. I look forward to her next book. I highly recommend reading Rump and this book for a very different experience with some really great fairytales.

Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!
