RAPUNZEL UNTANGLED BLOG TOUR!!

 I'm so excited to be hosting part of this tour on my blog. A very big thank you to Cindy Bennett for letting me do this. Check out the book, my review, about the author and the giveaway at the end!! (INTERNATIONAL) =D 


Title: Rapunzel Untangled
Author: Cindy C Bennett
Publisher: Cedar Fort
  

A girl trapped in a mansion.

A mysterious old woman.

The boy who will change everything.
  
Fab Fane Fannigan: Are you saying you live at GOTHEL MANSION??? RG: My mother calls it Gothel Manor, so maybe that’s different? 
Fab Fane Flannigan: No, Rapunzel, there’s only one that I know of. It has to be the same. So  you live in the tower?
RG: Uh, the tower? I don’t know. Is it a tower? 
 Fab Fane Flannigan: Yes, it is. I know where it is. Rapunzel, promise me one thing
RG: Okay.
 Fab Fane Flannigan: Don’t Google your house.


Rapunzel is not your average teenager. For one thing, she has a serious  illness that keeps her inside the mysterious Gothel Mansion. And for  another, her hair is 15 feet long. Not to mention that she’s also the key  to ultimately saving the world from certain destruction. But then she  meets a boy named Fane, who changes all she has ever known, and she  decides to risk everything familiar to find out who she really is. Filled  with romance, adventure, and mystery, Rapunzel Untangled is one story you won’t want to  put down. Discover the true meaning of love and  friendship in this modern twist to the classic fairytale.


My Review:  



I received an ARC copy from the author Cindy Bennett in exchange for an honest review. I really adored this book and loved how it was kept to the original fairytale storyline, but with a twist of modern. Like the original tale, Rapunzel is kept inside a tower for most of her life. She never sees or enters the outside world. In this, Rupunzel is told she must stay inside because she has a disease and that she is very important. Rapunzel is shown as a sweet and innocent girl. She knows nothing about the secrets her mother is hiding, and she just wants to be happy and live a happy normal life. Enter Fane, a mischievous young guy who goes to the local school. Rapunzel ad Fane meet over Facebook via messages. Eventually they meet, and they feel a connection between each other. Feelings soon develop and blossom, and it is a sweet romance. Whilst meeting Fane, Rapunzel is also discovering certain secrets that are hidden within. Can she live with herself knowing the truths? Throughout the story, I found myself intrigued to know the secrets myself, as well as enjoying the characters. Rapunzel's mother does come across mysterious and evil. The messages Rapunzel and Fane send each other over Facebook are sweet, enjoyable and funny. I like the cover to the book. The long golden hair symbolising Rapunzel, as her hair is of that description. The structure to the book is good too. The chapters aren't too long. All in all it was a fantastic read, and I definitely recommend to anyone, especially people who like a re-telling of fairy tales. I gave this book five stars as it was well deserved.
