It feels sort of euphoric, like we’re in some sort of fairy tale. Like she’s Tinkerbell and I’m Peter Pan.
No, wait. I don’t want to be Peter Pan.
Maybe she can be like Cinderella and I’ll be her Prince Charming.
I can’t stop smiling!!
Finding Cinderella was a beautifully written, deeply heart warming novella that made me laugh, cry, and fall in love. In less than 100 pages, it made me feel more than I have in many entire books. Daniel and Six captured my heart and I hope that one day we get more of their story because I’m not ready to let go yet!
I was originally going to talk about the plot here but honestly, I think it’ll be more fun to just discover it for yourselves. Suffice it to say that I absolutely adored every word of story – it was fun, quirky and unique.
In case you don’t remember, Daniel and Six were Holder and Sky’s best friends from Hopeless and Losing Hope and while this novella reads as a standalone, it would have greater meaning if you read both those books first. Also, fans of Holder and Sky will be happy to know that they have several scenes in this and it was a real treat to see them from the outside through someone else’s eyes.
The character dynamics are just gold, the writing is witty and, true to Colleen Hoover’s style, you are made to care deeply about every part of these characters’ lives. I have quotes highlighted on each page and while the majority of the story kept me laughing out loud, swooning and chuckling to myself, there were also strong emotional reveals that had me in tears and brought a really wonderful depth to it all.
It was short enough to read in one sitting but long enough to never feel rushed and give you that feeling of reading a ‘complete’ story. I finished it with a huge smile on my face and the happiest feeling in my heart.
Truly, the perfect novella ♥
