Someone Else's Fairytale

Title:               Someone Else's Fairytale
Author:           E.M. Tippetts
Publisher:      Amazon Digital Services
Medium:        Kindle

Goodreads Synopsis:  Jason Vanderholt, Hollywood's hottest actor, falls head over heels for everygirl, Chloe Winters, who hasn't gotten around to watching most of his movies. She becomes the woman every other woman in America is dying to be, but it just isn't her fairytale. 

It didn’t take me very long to get through this great read on my Kindle.  Someone Else’s Fairytale transported me back in time about 20 years, and was a wonderful distraction from the stresses of everyday life.  It also didn’t take long for this book to grab hold me and kept me interested until the very end.  I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity it gave me to escape for a few hours.

I loved the idea behind this book, because I think at one time or another in every young girl’s life, we have that fairy tale about the lead singer of a rock group or a famous actor falling head over heels in love with us.  One thing I liked most about the book was that that Tippetts kept me in small bits of suspense throughout.  There was always a question in my mind about how the book would ebb and flow, and of course, ultimately end.  I mean, we all try to figure out (and know) how books will end, right?

The story behind Someone Else’s Fairytale, was definitely a fairytale for so many young girls today.  I think that this book allows the opportunity for the reader to dream about something that more than likely would never happen to the average person.  I also feel that the author did a great job of showing all sides of the main characters in the book, and gave me as a reader a nice idea of what even some of the minor characters were like.  There was definitely a complete feeling with every character in this book.

I was definitely routing for the main character, Chloe, even when she wasn’t routing for herself.  I wanted her to find happiness no matter where it came from, and I wanted her to succeed.  I liked how there was a sense of family that came through in the book, especially when it wasn’t the cookie cutter, perfect family scenario.  Even while weaving the web of a fairytale, Tippetts was able to keep things real, and for me, that made the book that much better.

If I were an older teen or twenty-something again, I would definitely keep this book on my shelf to read again when things were glum.  It gave me a feeling of happiness.  I would definitely recommend Someone Else’s Fairytale for a younger crowd who has a book club.  Their discussion would be so much fun to listen to.
