Alexa S. - THERE IS A CHARACTER NAMED WOLF? That’s seriously enough reason for me to want to read this book already. But, also, I just really like the sound of princesses and a ball and all these crazy characters. Great (and fun) way to review! 🙂

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Interesting! I’m still on the fence about this one… It seems like I’d enjoy it but I haven’t been seeing anything STELLAR about it yet? I think I’ll play it cool for a while and see if I happen up on it! 🙂

Megan (Best of Fates) - Okay, I love the cover and am intrigued by Perry & Archer (I love quality sidekicks!).

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Fun superlatives! With so many characters, that’s the perfect way to review this book. And yes, more Wolf please!

Kelly @ Belle of the Literati - I’m still so up in the air on this but this post is freaking awesome! When I eventually get around to reading this I’m totally referencing back to keep things straight and I’ll remember them based on how you described them. Love it!

Alexa - Yay I’m really glad you enjoyed this one. I have been wanting to read this but many people are saying it was confusing or just plain didn’t work for them. I’m glad it worked for you.

Thanks for the great review!

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - I’ve seen so many positive things about this book. I was a little hesitant about it – not sure why – but now I’m dying to read it! Love your superlatives too; so cute! I do enjoy putting book characters into these categories. 🙂

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Slightly off topic (but you did bring it up in your review) – I need to read Let it Snow. I actually bought the book last year . . . and, well, you know how it goes. But hearing that you really enjoyed it makes me want to read it more.

I like the Stocking Stuffer Reviews!

Alexa Y. - I love a good Christmas story, so to have four of them all together in this one book seems pretty intriguing. Seems like it would be a quick, fun read for the holidays! (Preferably with something pepperminty in hand!)

Ginger @ GReads! - I seem to have similar issues with these short story novellas when they’re grouped together like this… I end up liking one or two, but not the other. And it makes it difficult to continue when the first of the group is the one I didn’t care for. I know I could jump around, considering they’re different stories, but I’m a sequential person lol.
