Mary Mary Quite Contrary by Cameron Jace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fifth Prequel.
The Devil's take on fairy tales, exposing the origins of some of the most important, yet never explained, elements in the fairy world. Darker things the Brothers Grimm didn't want you to know about. More hints would just spoil the fun.
Let's just say that at some point in the Dreamworld even the devil was about so sell his soul.


Actual rating: 4.5 stars


We have candy...and Cameron Jace.

(Wait, I heard there is a gif war among GR users? But, but my reviews need gifs and gifs need my reviews).

*Continue derping around as if the gif war didn't happen*

I AM AT LOST FOR WORDS, Mr Cameron Jace! Well played sir, well played. Strangely, there are still a couple of minor spelling mistakes but they didn't take away my attention from this little gem. I'm just so happy to witness how the author has (bloomed? evolved? metamorphosized? improved? okay, let's stick with improved) into an entertaining storyteller not just another writer anymore. I'm just amazed how drastic my opinion towards the prequels has changed. Before this I thought what's the point of writing so many prequels (there are seven in total) even though readers can get them for free? I thought prequels are just fillers and they will just take away the anticipation and the patience from the readers because it's like giving people seven appetizers before they can eat the main course! But in my case, it was the opposite because I seriously in dire need for Snow White Sorrow!

One thing that worries me is that the prequels up to this point has gotten somewhat complicated and let's face it, not everyone will want to read all the seven prequels first. For us, the prequels readers, I don't think we want to read many repetitions in the full book. So, Snow White Sorrow must meet the requirement for both groups and I'm really intrigued to see how the author will handle this.

Geez...I rant a lot these days.

Okay, Mary Mary Quite Contrary. Definitely my favourite prequel so far. There was no dull moment. Less dialogues, which is something that usually causes me to lose focus but not in this case because The Devil voice was very entertaining! A lot of references back to the earlier prequels were made and this novella ties many loose ends until by the time you finished with this, you will have your...

Sorry, I just freaking like gifs.

About the Author

Things you might want to know:Cameron writes books that he can't find elsewhere, basically to amuse himself. Everything Cameron does is for fun, so don't take him seriously. Never call him a writer. He hates that. He prefers the word: Storyteller, or the boy next door who claims he can tell stories.
If you like his books, horaaaay! He loves ya too. If ya don't, hoooray! Now we know in advance that this relationship isn't going to work.
Although his books are ordinary on the surface, they hold many secrets that he might reveal one day. What matters the most to him are characters struggling to find their identities and place in the world.
He also writes under another pen name that shall be revealed later.
Things you Don't need to know:He celebrates his birthday twice a year, the day he was born and Friday the 13th. He wants to live in a bubble house. He lives in San Fransisco when he has no money. When he does, he travels away, and that's when he writes best. He is a damn good guitar player. He is damn good architecture college drop out. He likes boats, beaches, bears, beards, bananas, bars, barfights, beans, bikes, bones, butter, babes, bakery, blizzards, and pirates ( he thought it was spelled Birates when he was a kid. )And honestly, writing in third person sucks! It's so fake.

This is an awesome giveaway and the book sounds really cool! Thanks to you I found a new series that seems really interesting to read. THANK YOU! :D

Hi Nitzan! No worries. I'm really glad that I managed to influence you to read this series *cue evil laugh*

Wait...why is there a gif war on goodreads?? I just started book bloggging seriously and I was thinking a) I need to be on goodreads and b) I should have gifs with my reviews! Your gifs, btw, were excellent and so is this giveaway!

Hi Sarah! Congratulations on starting your book blog! Bookblogging is so much fun! Hopefully, you enjoy it. ^_^

a) Yes, you definitely need to be on goodreads. I call it bookaholic facebook. Haha. I personally spend more of my time socializing at goodreads.

b) Yes, you should have gifs with your reviews! XD It just that lately, some goodreads users complained about how gifs usage are annoying, slowing the page loading time, and some also went to the extent of saying the gifs users are immature teenagers.

Whatever. My advice is; keep the number of gifs in one review to 1-2, don't make them too big, don't choose gifs that can induce seizure. That's all! :D

Hi! I welcome comments and feedback! But because I suck at HTML code, I don't know how to add reply button to each comment (I tried googled it but I think this template doesn't allow such change), so I will be very lousy at keeping track of the comments but it doesn't mean that I don't appreciate your comments! ^_^
