I could easily see this book as a graphic novel -- the focus on super-powers, the quick jumps from scene to scene without a lot of exposition, the action sequences. Once it got going, I enjoyed it, and I think it will appeal to comics fans. I found the nonexistent transitions a little hard to follow.

Plenty of suspense, lots of fairy-tales twined together, dramatic romance, and darker endings-This is a good choice for a teen who wants a contemporary fairy-tale retelling that doesn't leave out the Grimm elements. I really liked the push and pull between curse and self-determination, and the lush descriptions of fashion and curse elements.

This was my "book that is a retelling of a classic story" for the Read Harder challenge - Snow White.

I loved Cross' [b:Dull Boy|5895933|Dull Boy|Sarah Cross||6068214] so much, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Kill Me Softly. This was a very different reading experience, but I still enjoyed it. The premise, "cursed" teens destined to live out fairy tale tropes, was intriguing. I found myself reading quickly because I wanted to know how major relationships would resolve themselves in the end, so this was a speedy read.

It was really nice to read a stand alone, but I also found myself wanting more story. I wanted to see how the supplementary characters dealt with their curses, because in some cases I was more interested in them than in Mirabelle. One of the themes running through the book is about how much you determine your fate versus how much your curse affects it, and I wish we got to see more of those issues play out. And while I bet many teens will absolutely love this, Mirabelle got on my nerves just a bit. I'm not a big fan of characters who expect to be told everything and then get pouty when they're kept in the dark about things. I know that's nit-picky, but it's something that pops up fairly frequently in YA. It may just be that I've reached a point in my life where I have less patience for whiny shennanigans, but I rolled my eyes at her complaints more than once.

Definitly will book talk this for summer reading, though I wish the cover was more fairy tale and less romance/murder.

This book's title is appropriate, as the author manages to tear apart traditional fairy tales and remix them into something entirely new. Viv, the Snow White character introduced in the previous volume, is the central character and her romance with her Huntsman sets up plenty of conflict throughout this novel. Viv is an interesting character and I appreciated a number of her internal struggles as well as her determination to fight against the fate assigned her. Overall, fun reading, but this one felt darker than the previous book in the series.… (mais)
