Re read Interesting how books affect you depending on the time in your life and how much you ve been reviewing The first time I read this, it became one of my favourites This time, I felt it was a little disjointed There are definitely moments that I really love the boardwalk scene , but there were also definitely moments where the writing fell apart 3.5 stars this time around I m a little disappointed this didn t hold up again. Tiff from Mostly YA blog recommended this and I can t wait to read it It sounds fun and cute Such an inspirational book I would have loved this as a teen or even a pre teen Talk about bullying, friendship and basically remembering who you are to take down evil in all its forms I thought it was such a great way to empower girls and young women by making a secret society into something even bigger To be kind and inspiring to others, I love the message this book sends out Though I found it to be an easy read, the plot only develops very little I thought it was a stand a lone and it s not so nothing ends..there s also no info abut book two so I m left feeling like it didn t end I m also still confused as to what their mission really is To battle the Wickeds And what is in the vault Why was there so many secrets being hidden from her When The Prom Queen Becomes Your Fairy Godmother Sixteen Year Old Outsider, Jess Parker, Gets The Chance Of A Lifetime An Invitation To Join A Secret

Life Come True, Jess Is Forced To Choose Between Living A Fairy Tale And Honoring The Sisterhood And HerselfWhat S A Girl To Do When The Glass Slipper Fits, But She Doesn T Want To Wear It Any I have to say, this was the perfect book for me to read during Valentine s day week I ve been putting off the review because I really enjoyed this book and don t think I can suitably tell you why but I ll attempt it Jess is a sixteen year old girl who isn t sure of herself and wants to just meld in, but she has the potential to be a great person and even a leader I love watching her transform and really starting to see what is inside of her and how to let that out I loved the aspect of the secret society and the battles of the wits between her and her arch nemesis And can I even talk about the romance I m so glad it wasn t perfect, that there was a bit of a trial to matching up Jess with her Prince Charming and trying to figure out if he really was the guy for her.So, between the conflict, the fantastic characters, and the overall fun this book was to read I d say you have a fantastic book Yes, it s chick lit not my usual type of thing, but it takes it farther and deeper It still overall has a feeling of light heartedness, but there s so much And can I say Secret Society any I just love secrets, don t you Read eviewed by Jennifer Rummel for TeensReadToo.comJess hates her school and desperately needs to find friends to keep her off of the mean girls radar.On the final day of the school year after two humiliating events , she finds an envelope in her bag inviting her to a secret society At first, she thinks it s just another prank, but then she realizes that it s for real Jess has no idea why they want her, but she s willing to find out why.The Cindys recruit girls with special powers of kindness, leadership, and generosity, and the group includes some of the most popular girls in school There s a long standing tradition of The Cindys nationwide battling the Wickeds, their evil counterpart This year, the Wickeds have doubled in size, proving that something s afoot.It s a lot of information for Jess to take in, but she s super excited about the makeover given to all of The Cindys upon their initiation Soon, she s picking out her own signature style and having her hair and makeup professionally done So far, everything about the group has been great, but there s a lot of work ahead of her.In the midst of the battle for good and evil, Jess snagged the boy she s been crushing on since she moved to town The Cindys have given Jess a mission to uncover information, but once Jess has it, she can t let go Will she go against The Cindys and their ways to battle her nemesis THE CINDERELLA SOCIETY is the first book in a new series I LOVED this book for several reasons, including the title love stories about Princesses , the cover which is awesome , and the story just rocks There are makeovers, secret societies, romance, and snarky showdowns.Add this to your list of books to read Empowering inspirational girl power This book wasn t what I was expecting at all I was expecting girly, I mean look at the cover, it s pink with a glass slipper, you can t get much girly than that, and it was girly, the thing that I wasn t expecting however was how this book made me feel More specifically how this book made me feel about myself It might sound crazy, but it made me feel better about myself, confidant and it made me want to be a better person I did not expect that at all.It was easy to relate to Jess, because I was that girl at one time in my life Although I wish I would have had a group like the Cinderella Society to guide me through those difficult times I was glad to see Jess s character become confident by the end of the novel, it was invigorating seeing her personal transformation.The plot was a little slow for me at times, but once the society was introduced things got a lot interesting The Wickeds and Villians, Cinerellas and Charmings it did have me scoffing at first, but by the end of the novel, I was really digging Cassidy s word choices.My only complaint was the relationship between Ryan and Jess The perfect popular boy falling for the MC I just didn t understand why Jess liked him, besides the fact that he was popular and gorgeous He might have had some substance under that shiny exterior, but he kept it hidden under a scowling persona hopefully he will grow on me in the next novel.Overall, The Cinderella Society was a great read, I d definitely recommend it The Cindys Rock I m sort of embarrassed by how much I liked this book I picked it up on a whim off of the library shelf and felt silly even starting it But, well, it turned out to be so much better than I thought it would be Don t think earth shattering amazing , but yes, I think it was much better than most teen high school girl novels, and I ve read quite a few Most of my opinion is due to 2 things, first, the messages are pretty darn good The cool girls are the ones out trying to make something great of their lives, be themselves, build people up and make the world a better place And second, there s some good romance stuff in it, and it s clean I mean, yes, there was some descriptive tongue going on in the kissing, but it was just kissing and that was all it ever was going to be And the hotty guy was great enough to keep you super interested, but not perfect Still had his flaws Still made mistakes The concepts and romance were good enough to keep the story line interesting, it wasn t super compelling, but interesting enough that I would like to read the next one Yep, you heard me, it s a series But, I think it s enough as a stand alone that it would be worth just reading this first one. To See Full Review Click Here I did not finish reading this book I tried reading it twice but I could never quite finish it I skimmed through the rest of it and I think I have read enough to develop a solid opinion of it.If there was any book I wanted to like this was it It had a powerful message about girl empowerment and anti bullying However, this book just didn t work for me There were many problems with this book I guess to get down with the nitty gritty of it I ll start talking about the plot in general and pacing Essentially Jess is invited into this ultra secret society of powerful women, a.k.a the Cindys And we learn that there is an ongoing battle between them and another ultra secret society of powerful women who favor the color black too much, the Wickeds Interesting set up, it has a lot of potential However, there were far too many plot holes for the story.Right now a lot of fan girls are probably telling me that the book is fiction and I should just let go of my sense of logic Alright, let me just say that I understand that it s fiction but in order for a fictional world to work there has to be some sort of logic to that world Why else do you think that world building is a big issue in fantasies In this book though there is no logic to the Cindys or anything really.Like Jess Though the Cindys state their reasons for choosing her of all people to join their little club I just don t see what they see Jess is a weak character I ll go into that in a later part of my review and I really didn t see anything that special about her Plus, from what I saw at the beginning of the novel the Cindys really didn t do anything except giving their characters makeovers and getting Tyra Banks okay, a Tyra wannabe who now runs a coffee shop to spy for them.Did I mention how many supposedly famous people are in this book It s ridiculous We have a supermodel turned barista, as well as a couple of celebrity spawns, and the book takes place in small town Georgia Okay, it s one thing to have maybe one famous person turning up in this small town, but than one It just doesn t make sense Neither does having an exclusive salon either If you want all these things in your setting, then place your book in a bigger city While I would still have qualms about all these celebrities living outside of LA or New York City, it would actually make a lot sense if this book took place in Georgia if it took place in Atlanta or Savannah not the freaking suburbs.Besides this plot hole, I was also sort of confused by the Cindys themselves They are suppose to be the protectors of the normal kids, but they don t do jack shit to help Jess when she s normal She is tortured endlessly and is isolated because of a Wicked at the beginning of the book Ignored by the Cindys until she s magically invited to their slumber party and inducted into their secret society Okay, being a victim of bullies for most of my life, I know that one of the biggest weapons they have against a person is isolation When you isolate someone they feel helpless They have no one to turn to and that s when bullies often win So essentially ignoring a girl for the first several months she lives in town while she gets tortured is not protecting said character It s actually enhancing the bullying So Cindys, my first impression of you was not very good at all.It probably didn t help matters that their was about sixty pages or so of the book just focused on Jess s makeover Look, I get that looking good helps you feel good But I really wish that there wouldn t have been as much as an emphasis on this aspect as there was It bogged down the book In fact, I often felt like I was reading a self help book about appearances rather than a YA novel The book seemed to go nowhere and I lost interest not only once but twice.As for the characters Generic names were used so I often forgot who was who Jess goes from having no friends to being essentially a member of an exclusive high school sorority full of several girls who I instantly forget about because no time is spent developing their characters so I didn t know Gaby from Gwen or whoever Even the love interest is sort of forgettable All I know is he s your typical YA love interest who doesn t appear to notice the main character and is always attached to some blonde, but halfway through the book after she becomes hot he ll notice her and he ll say he s always liked her Yeah.I was not impressed Plus, it didn t help matters that Jess only liked Ryan because he had a jaw like Jake Gyllenhaal.As for Jess herself She was just sort of meh.She wasn t offensive I ve read books with characters who are far obnoxious than her I just didn t like her I thought she was weak and a bit shallow And yeah, most teenage girls are weak and somewhat shallow to an extent, but I didn t really see any substance with Jess I also found it hard to believe that a girl who moves around so much would always be in cheerleading It s not that I don t doubt Jess s skill as a cheerleader, I was just always under the assumption that a good portion of being a good cheerleader was knowing your community and being able to interact on a social level with your teammates Jess who has moved around constantly and who admits to not having much social interaction with anyone does not fit my definition of cheerleading But hey what do I know I was only a band nerd.Best Feature Good Message I think this book has a great message, but honestly I often felt like this was being constantly slapped in my face Look, this might be a pet peeve of mine but I hate it when books with messages become message books What is a message book A book that clearly thinks I need to learn something from it Which is what this book does While I do appreciate what it s trying to preach, I just don t like the idea of being preached to in the first place I leaving preaching for, well, preachers.Worst Feature Lack of Plot Okay, so the book does have a plot but if takes forever to get to The first hundred pages or so are just an introduction to the Cindys and plans for the big makeover And while I do love makeover scenes as much as the next girl, I just don t think that there needs to be that much buildup to said scenes.Appropriateness It s pretty clean Alright, so there is some bullying in the book Pretty moronic bullying if I m going to be honest about it, but when is bullying smart Girl power, baby This is the book you want when you want to believe you can do anything I was pleasantly surprised with this book It such an uplifting and positive book for girls I love that the MC learned to be herself and still stand up against what was wrong I think every young girl can learn a lot from this little gem I will probably read of this series as it made me smile.
