Unraveling – Fairytale-Esque Book Review

Okay, so I have a confession to make: I was abducted by aliens. I know, it’s hard to believe that my dream has come true after only a few months … but it’s true.

Now, with that statement comes two true facts: 1) I had plenty of time to read (intermittent with experimentation) and that is just glorious. But 2) While I was prepared with a few books (like a good, loyal bookdragon), I quickly ran out. So I have been in a reading slump unable to read many books due to an alien abduction. This has been the cause of my disappearance.

BUT. One of the books that I did have was Unraveling by Sara Ella (the second book in the Unblemished trilogy … where I coincidentally reviewed the first book HERE).

Enjoy this review. Or my alien “friends” will come for you.



What I liked:

So … this is just a fairytale-esque book. Everything’s just so … sweet, even when someone’s being tortured. 😉

aladdin-cartoon-disney-awkward-momentAlso. While there is a love triangle ( 😦 ), both of the guys are great in their own ways, and as well as the other characters, they are well written and everything.

But one of my favorite things about this book and the one prior, is that while everything has a (Disney) fairytale feel to it, it has so much … modern voice to it. Like, um, yeah. Not sure how to describe it. Like in her head she uses hashtags or uses Oreos as comparison and the like. 😛


Eh. I’m still not a huge fan of El. She has a lot of points for the reader to connect with … but she just seems to be the complete opposite of me. Still, she had her good moments.

Okay. Ky. </3 I’m soooo conflicted. I love him, but yet … he’s Superman? Ya know? He’s just so perfect, even down to his flaws that make him even more perfect. But I mean, come on. If you’ve read the first book, you know just how adorable Kyaphus is!!

Oddly enough, this book made me love Joshua. I wasn’t super fond of him before, but in this … you really see his struggles and his … dark … side. And since we got a lot of narrative from him, that was pretty cool. So now I love him and am possibly (???) on team Joshua???



As always, Ms. Sara Ella’s writing is fantastical (is that a proper form of the word fantasy???? Whatever.) and very … enchanting? Magical? Um, I don’t know. It’s just very light, so it makes for an “easy” read.

The plot moves along pretty well. A little slow, for my taste, but it still worked really well for the book.


Ehhh. Love triangle stuff. Really not my thing – but I was surprised by how well this all worked (even though I still didn’t love it). It is well written, though I wasn’t as tolerant of it in this book as the one prior.



And I kinda had to force myself to pick up the book, though I enjoyed it wile I was reading it. I found a lot of things to be too coincidental. :/ A lot of things confused me or didn’t make since, as well.


This is a really sweet, fairytale book that has a lot of romance and just … yeah. It’s good.

There is some violence (nothing too extreme), and kissing. But it’s pretty appropriate.

This series is very sweet and and fairytale-esque with lots of romance and a touch of action. I’d definitely recommend this to those modern fairytale lovers!

  1. Welcome back to earth!! I guess the aliens have changed you because I see your blog design is a lil different and a lil more awesome, I likey 🙂
    I’ve been on Neptune for a few weeks and I’m sooooo behind on my blog, but I’m back now, a little less sane, but at least I’m not a full zombie yet.
    This book looks soooo me!! I love disney and fairytales and alllll of it so I’ll definitely check this one out.
    Favourite disney film? Probably tangled or treasure planet, they’re great. What’s yours again??
    Simi 🙂


    1. Thank you, and the pleasantry is returned in your (general) direction. I hear that Neptune is lovely this time of year, or never.
      (Thanks! I’m still not settled on the design, but I HATED the white-on-gray words… But I like it. 😉 )
      Yep! There’s literally three (two? one? my counting skills have obviously DECREASED. Har har har.) chapters in the book that have SO. MANY. Tangled references and stuff. ❤
      Aaaah! I LOVE Tangled! I think my siblings are COMPLETELY tired of it … but since when did I care??? XD Treasure Planet, as well, man. That was brother's and friend's favorite for YEARS, so I consider myself pretty familiar with it. 😛
      And lastly … Brother Bear. DEFINITELY Brother Bear. 😉

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Yes yes it’s luxurious.
        I loooove tangled it’s my fave forever ❤ but so underrated?? 😦 I could watch it a million times and never get bored 😉
        YAS I love brother bear!! ❤ I like how there's no romance for once too, just brotherly love. IT'S JUST AMAZING.


  2. Abduction by aliens is literally the best reason for not being on the blogosphere for a while. Happened to me a while back, too. Oddly enough, though, my aliens were named College and Life. XD Great review! I’ve been looking into reading this series. 🙂


    1. Hi!! Yeah, it’s quite the excuse, isn’t it??? But then again, you should know that. College and Life are brutal. XD
      Thanks!! Yeah, this series is pretty great!! You should definitely give it a try!
