    One thought on “Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale”

    1. This was a gift from a dear friend for my birthday. It has a great inscription from the author, Liz, that made me wonder what my favorite junk food might be. Turns out I don't have one favorite, but several that I turn to depending on the situation. In addition, the book was printed the day before my birthday on the birthday of my other friend, Jackie. All of the above makes it pretty special from the very start.Cover arty one problem, the girl doesn't look enough like Crimson for me. She is ver [...]

    2. Crimson Day is an awkward, unassuming wallflower-type who above all else, desires to fade into the background and not be noticed. Her mother is beautiful, light, calming - and absolutely nothing like Crimson herself. Right before Crimson’s 16th birthday, her mom starts acting weird…well, weirder than usual. In addition to wondering why in the world her mother is going off the deep end, Crimson wonders how she could possibly belong to this woman who she loves, but is well, TOTALLY not like he [...]

    3. This was an interesting new story about demons. Crimson has lived her life thinking she is a normal human girl, only to find out on her sixteenth birthday that she is a demon princess.her mom has taught her all her life to do good, had her do yoga to stay calm, and she always avoided confrontaion.

Crimson has to learn who she is and learn to fight her own b [...]

    4. I won't do a synopsis of the book, others already have and did a much better job than I would. I'll just say that I loved this book. I could feel Crimson's anguish of trying to be her mother's good daughter, while trying to survive in her father's evil world. The characters were well developed and Ms. Jasper made me care about what happened to them. The book was well-written and well-edited. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. (NOTE: This review is for the eBook which I couldn't f [...]

    5. I got this book free as part of a Read to Review program in exchange for an honest review.Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale is about a normal Cali girl turning 16. Unbeknownst to her, she's actually the daughter of the Demon King and was kidnapped by the woman she knew as her mother and hidden in the Real World, away from the her people. However, she came into her "powers" at 16 and was thus found by the Demon King.Rating: 2 ~ 2.5 stars.I thought this book had really good concept, idea, and f [...]

    6. Rating: 4 starsAn e-copy of this book was provided for purpose of honest review by the author. I was not compensated for this review, and conclusions are honestly given and entirely my responsibility. Review for Lovers of Paranormal, a Group. “It's the choices you make that determine who you are."Nature versus nurture, a debate for the ages. I applaud the author for taking on the debate in a direct attack, even if many of the references are peppered with Disney-esque characters. The promise t [...]

    7. Crimson is about to turn sixteen, so she really tries to keep her comments in check around her mom until the big day. She is dying to get her driver’s license so she and her friends, Todd and Hayley, can stop riding on the bus. Her mom is already pretty organic already as the owner of her own yoga studio. But when she goes overboard with the crystals - literally hundreds around the house and on Crimson, Crimson has to work very hard to appease her mother and let her have her way.Super tall, pa [...]

    8. I loved this book. It checked a lot of boxes for me: YA Paranormal, High School drama.I thought the book was well paced and insightful into what it is like being a teenager. Crimson starts of being an ordinary teenager fast approaching her 16th birthday with a crush on her best male friend and all that awkward teenage behaviour that comes with that. Then her long lost father shows up and everything changes. Who hasn't at some point wished there parents were someone else and would come by and res [...]

    9. I got this book as an R2R last year and after technical difficulties I was unaware of, here is the long awaited review: Crimson Day is the wall flower with a totally unaware of how popular he is best friend named Todd and a female squealer named Hayley. As her 16th birthday approaches, Crimson's mom, Miranda begins acting crazy, insisting Crimson wear various crystals and covering every available surface with as many crystals as humanly possible. As it turns out she's actually kidnapped (using t [...]

    10. I received this book in return for a honest review from the author. The book starts off right before Crimson is about to turn sixteen and her mother is acting weirder than normal. Suddenly all the house is covered in crystals. Crimson has no idea why her mom is acting strange until the night of her sweet sixteen party where they are attacked by two henchmen and a dark stranger who sends her mother away and takes her to another world. A world where Crimson learns she is a Princess but instead of [...]

    11. *This copy was received from First Reads for free, (won) Thank you! Seriously, thank you for sending me this one. I loved it! Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale held many unexpected surprises for me. Liz Jasper did a wonderful job spinning this story into an enjoyable read.The characters were interesting, especially Crimson’s mother, Miranda. I can’t wait to see if we’ll find out more about her in the next book. Crimson herself is also an ok character, she isn’t perfect, but is portra [...]

    12. I received this book free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review. This book starts off with Crimson, a soon to be sixteen year old anxiously waiting for her sweet sixteen party. Her mom starts acting extra weird and places even more crystals around their house and even on Crimson's  clothes for no apparent reason other then she is a hippy. Then we learn it's because Miranda (Crimson's mom) is trying to keep her safe from her father. Crimson is told by her mother that her fa [...]

    13. From Book Reviews for Bookaholics. Full review there.I received this book in the Read to Review program in the Young Adult Reads group on . I am not being paid or compensated in any way to review this, it was my choice completely. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was much better than I thought it would be.The plot was very good. I really enjoyed seeing what we think of as "the dark side" of things. It was very fast paced from the beginning. It was very funny and pretty [...]

    14. I received this book for free as part of an R2R in exchange for my honest opinion.Crimson is a normal teenage girl, preparing for her sixteenth birthday, or so she thinks. Crimson thinks her mom is just a flaky hippie obsessed with Crystals. Little does she know that her mom gives her the crystals to keep her father from finding her. Little does Crimson know that she really is a demon princess taken at birth. Her father finds her on her sixteenth birthday, and all hell breaks lose. Not only does [...]

    15. First and foremost I must say that this book is really good. If I could I would actually give it 4.5 stars (and I am generally somewhat pessimistic when it comes to rating books). Liz Jasper does a very good job of writing a this unique story.One of my favorite things about this book was that it was not overly predictable. I loved the interesting situations the main character, Crimson ends up in. Also, the writing technique was really good. Liz Jasper wove many colorful imaged with her words. Fu [...]

    16. I won this from a good reads giveaway about a year ago and until now I hadn't given much thought about reading the book. I was initially going to sell/give it away but then I decided to give it a chance.I honestly liked this book. My opinion was extremely off and wrong, because normally I try to stay away from most "supernatural" books because they often end horribly.Liz Jasper did exceptionally well with this book because I adore it and I honestly hope there's a sequel to it.Crimson's mother an [...]

    17. Good Day, Firstly, i got the book for free in exchange for my review. I have to admit it was highly original, from your typical YA paranormal romance, but it held my interest. I almost never read something without a romantic element to it. So the fact i read the whole book, i stunned myself completely. The were chapters i did skip because i felt they were not that important, or they were repeated. I enjoyed the main character Crimson and her name was very fitting given the situation. The book sh [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this book. It was refreshing and different from what I normally read. Crimson was a fun character. She was a very typical teenager and I loved her internal monologue. The book read very much like a chic lit book for teens to me. I loved the chic lit genre so I had a lot of fun reading one from a teen’s perspective.I thought the storyline was very original and I liked that Crimson’s response to the supernatural things happening around her were very authentic. She didn’t jus [...]

    19. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. I really couldn't get into this book. The first few chapters could of been left out entirely in my opinion. They didn't lend anything to the story and the little background they give could of been put into a couple paragraphs. So I skip over a few chapters, attempting to find something interesting only to land on a chapter that spends way too much time talking about what Crimson will wear to school before she and her cousin tear off in [...]

    20. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. problem! :)I thoroughly enjoyed Crimson in the Very Wrong Fairy Tale. The premise was a nice twist on the usual paranormal fare and I really enjoyed the style and immediacy of the writing.No, it's not perfect and perhaps some of the descriptions of hell could have been fleshed out a bit more but in the overall scheme of things I found that to be a minor quibble - and genuinely I think the positives outweighed the small negati [...]

    21. This book was refreshing from the other books that I have read. I enjoyed it. Crimson played the part of evil and yet good prevailed. At first she whined but then she realized that she needed to stop and she did a complete 180. Crimson is awesome. She cared for her friends and she stood up to her family. She believed along that her mother was still around and is finding a way to get back to her. I love Crimson and Todd and can't wait for them to admit to each other that they love each other. I c [...]

    22. Peeps, check this book out! I have to admit it was highly original:) I really enjoyed the storyline. I wasn't super excited that this wasn't a paranormal romance, but it held my interest. I almost never read something without a romantic element to it, so this was an exception.I enjoyed the main character Crimson and her name was very fitting given the situation. The book showed her transformation but kept her morals in tact. Brock was an interesting character as well.This book is geared towards [...]

    23. This book was provided free of charge for an honest review.I really enjoyed this book. If I could give it a 4 1/2 stars, I would. The story was fun, never lagging and a nice change from typical fairy tales. Sure I could anticipate what was going to happen most of the time, but that didn't change my view on the book at all. (I'm the type that loves romantic comedies even though they all are the same!)The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because there were parts in the book that didn't explai [...]

    24. This was a really fun read. It sets up a nice basis for further books, but still has enough plot to make it a full story itself. And I definitely want to read the sequel!Crimson was an interesting character - someone who tries to be good all the time, but can't quite make it work. And with the introduction of her father, and the truth about her past and parentage, we get to find out why. I really liked how there wasn't any romance in it (a rarity for YA novels nowadays), and it didn't feel lacki [...]

    25. I picked this book from my TBR pile, trying to remind myself not to judge a book by it's cover & I'm glad I did. I had read over half the book before I knew it. Guest had shown up & I had to step back out of this book to to be a good hostess. I jumped back in once my guests had left & was able to quickly reenter the story. Great story line, well developed characters, the writing is seamless & leaves you wanting more. Looking forward to the next book. I won this book from First R [...]

    26. This Book Was Ok. Crimson Was Kidnapped By Her Mom To Keep Her Hidden From Her Dad The Demon King. When She Turned 16 She Came Into Her Powers And Her Dad Found Her. Most Of The Book She Complained About Everything. Why Would You Stay In One Spot And Become A Celebrity For Gods Sake If Your Trying To Hide A Kid And Keeping The Same Name Was Really Pointless. It Did Have Some Good Parts To It So It Wasn't A Total Loss It I Do Recommend You To Read It For Your Own Opinion.

    27. I gave 2 stars for this book. I got this book for free for a read to review with an honest opinion, I really couldn't get into the book and I had to make myself read it. It just seemed to me like this book kept dragging on about the things that to me really didn't matter.

    28. 3.75 but that rounds up to a 4. I like Crimson's character and the life she has in the human world. I also liked how she solved her dilemma in the end. It does seem like Hell isn't what it used to be but maybe she was a princess of one of the suburbs.
