Alexa S. - Obviously, I’m going to need to read this at some point! You had me at retelling ๐Ÿ˜‰ It sounds like such a fun book, and I really like the sound of the story. Kind of makes me think of Laura Florand’s Amour et Chocolat books (which are fun too)!

Annie - Yay, I’m so happy you enjoyed this Estelle! I was crossing my fingers when I clicked on this review that it would be favourable. I’ve really been interested in reading this book for a really long time, mostly because of the cover but then I found it was like a Cinderella story and I got even more excited. Cinderella was one of my favourite movies as a child so any book that mentions Cinderella is a selling point for me. And shoes! Shoes are also a huge selling point haha ๐Ÿ™‚ Great review! I’m so much more excited for this book now!!
