    1. These retellings are amazing, and you should all read them even if you re not especially interested in fairy tales or in Sleeping Beauty Because they re DIFFERENT And they re really cool Favorite story Definitely Out of the Tomb It had this really amazing Star Wars y vibe to it that I loved, while still being completely unique and original Guardian of Our Beauty and The Man on the Buckskin Horse were fantastic, too Shout out to Rachel Kovaciny for coming up with the most original twist on the wh [...]


    2. THIS This is the fairytale collection I ve been waiting for from Rooglewood Press I certainly did not expect it, since Sleeping Beauty isn t a story of much interest for me, but each and every story in here STUNNED me with brilliant originality, gorgeous and unique writing, and perfectly crafted, paced, and concluded plot The Man on the Buckskin Horse The first is a Western, and while I may not have recognized it as a Sleeping Beauty story without being told, each important aspect of the tale is [...]


    3. Five Magic Spindles was a pretty impressive collection of Sleeping Beauty fairytale retellings I enjoyed it quite a lot The Man on the Buckskin Horse was a Western version of Sleeping Beauty which did an excellent job of translating the original fairytale to a work of straight historical fiction The narrator of this story, a good fairy translated into a down to earth frontier midwife, was one of my favourite characters from the whole collection.Guardian of Our Beauty well, recently I ve become t [...]


    4. 4.5 stars Wow, guys This collection, tho 3 As a huge fan of fairy tale retellings, I couldn t be thrilled to see such fresh and creative twists on Sleeping Beauty Mix guns, sheep, horses, and a dog named Blue and you ll get The Man on the Buckskin Horse by Rachel Kovaciny Short and sweet, this opening story warmed my heart Though not as deep as I love stories to be, it was A LOT of fun, and the MC Emma was pretty awesome.Mix priests, prophecies, and stinging scorpions and you ll get Guardian of [...]


    5. Clearly, the best of the three anthologies published so far by Rooglewood Press, collecting the five winners of their annual fairy tale retellings contest of which I hope there ll be many Surprisingly, four of these were 5 star reads for me Quite the personal record And I say surprisingly because, as it happened with the theme tale in the anthology before this one, it s meant to rework a tale that s not amongst my favourites The tale known as The Sleeping Beauty in the Woods Perrault Little Bri [...]



    6. These collections just keep getting better I truly think Five Magic Spindles, a collection of Sleeping Beauty retellings, is the best yet This is interesting given that my knee jerk reaction when the short synopses of the contest winning stories were first released was that I thought this would be the first collection where I wouldn t like all of the stories Silly, silly me.I ll start at the beginning with, The Man on the Buckskin Horse by Rachel Kovaciny This retelling was a western, told from [...]


    7. I enjoyed this collection so much, I was downright sorry to see it end The story I was most looking forward to going into the book was The Man on the Buckskin Horse by Rachel Kovaciny, since it s a Western hurray and the author is a blogging friend of mine I wasn t disappointed As a Western, it s just right I loved the no nonsense voice of Emma, the narrator the descriptions of the setting and the moving way the element of restless, haunted post Civil War drifters is described and woven into the [...]


    8. Of this collection I only read The Man on the Buckskin Horse by Rachel Kovaciny, because she d asked me to be one of her advance readers, to which I happily answered OF COURSE I ve never been an advance reader before and it sounded pretty cool I like this, this advance reader business This story was so fun I had no idea how the Sleeping Beauty premise would work with the western setting, but Rachel fit things together very well The flow of the story was nice I m still getting used to the fast pa [...]


    9. There probably aren t many of us who don t love a good fairytale We swoon over the romantics, become captured by the adventure and smile in pleasure over the comfort a happy ending is around the corner Imagine then enjoying not one but five neat little fairytales captured in one pretty novel That s what you ll find if you open the pages of Five Magic Spindles, the product of Rooglewood Press third fairytale retelling contest Inside these pages are five diverse and unique stories The authors were [...]


    10. This was a nice set of fairy tales The stories were diverse from a western to science fiction, and I enjoyed each of them, which is unusual in most short story collections.


    11. I have enjoyed all the Fairy Tale Collections published by Rooglewood Press thus far Five Magic Spindles is the best collection yet Ironically, Sleeping Beauty is probably my least favorite fairy tale as the premise seems so improbable A passive princess is awakened by a prince she doesn t even know who professes his undying love A bit disturbing, especially if you have read some of the modern retellings of this tale.Despite my misgivings, each author skillfully wove complex versions of Sleeping [...]


    12. I ve finally gotten my hands on this collection, and it was just as good as I had hoped Each story is vastly different, but they all include the most recognizable elements of Sleeping Beauty, and one thing almost all have in common is the importance placed upon secondary characters to help tell the tale of a sleeping princess.The first story, The Man on the Buckskin Horse, was a clever western retelling of the tale that I enjoyed whole heartedly even if I m not in general a big fan of the genre [...]


    13. If you like traditional fairytales but get bored of the same story over and over, then buckle in for some wild and massively creative twists on the story of Aurora otherwise known as the Sleeping Beauty Five talented young authors were recently selected to be featured in the Rooglewood Press collection Five Magic Spindles the end prize of Anne Elisabeth Stengl s yearly writing competition held over at Tales of Goldstone Wood I received an influencer e copy of Five Magic Spindles in return for my [...]



    14. Due to time constraints and a busy life, I wasn t able to read all the short stories in this collection magical fantasy isn t one of my favorite things anyway but the one I did read The Man on the Buckskin Horse by Rachel Kovaciny was the one I signed up to be the advance reader for, so that worked out I hope to write a fuller review of all five stories sometime soon, but for now, I ll just be focusing on The Man on the Buckskin Horse.Westerns are AWESOME I love reading westerns, watching wester [...]


    15. This is a partial review of one of the stories in the collection I will update the review when I have read all of the stories.Sleeping Beauty is my favorite fairy tale I would watch the Disney movie over and over again, loving the fire breathing dragon, sweet fairies, and the evil fairy This book has five novella s each with a different take on the classic.I read one of the five stories I read Spindle Cursed by Michelle Pennington In December I plan to read all five of the stories and give a ful [...]


    16. This review is for The Man on the Buckskin Horse This short story comes from a collection called Five Magic Spindles, which was developed from a writing contest of stories based on a fairy tale retelling of Sleeping Beauty How fun is that right I had a chance to review Rachel Kovaciny s The Man on the Buckskin Horse A Sleeping Beauty retelling, Western style Fairy tale retellings are a popular genre and while some are fun to read, some you know exactly what to expect it is, after all, a retellin [...]

    19. For those enjoy a bit of magic and fairy tales, I m sure you ll fall in love with this book In 5 different ways, you get to relive the story of Sleeping Beauty Each with a different author s spin on the story.My favorite in the collection is Grace Mullins The Ghost of Briardale What do I love The connection between a spell cast than 500 years ago and how it all came to a climax as the spell finished its cycle, in the early 1900s, I believe Immediately this gives the reader something interesting [...]


    20. If you had asked me throughout my entire childhood which fairy tale was my favorite, I would have unswervingly answered, Sleeping Beauty Much of this answer was, of course, influenced by the Disney movies, and Sleeping Beauty had it all Beautiful music, humor, a prince who not only had a name, but also a backbone as well as the ability to sing and dance, and a truly evil witch who turns into an awesome dragon A few years later, I was given a Child s Book of Fairy Tales by my grandpa and it inclu [...]


    21.

    23. It took me a long time to get around to reading this book, because I had so hoped to have my own story as a part of this collection Disappointment was bitter, but with the promise of Five Poisoned Apples on the horizon I decided to give this story a chance and ended up enjoying this collection of stories very much.Rachel Kovaciny writes perhaps the strangest retelling in her The Man on the Buckskin Horse A story that takes place in the Wild West, with no magic if you can believe it , and the pro [...]


    24. Typically, I am not a huge fan of short stories, probably for the same reason I am not a fan of small coffee mugs or brief rain showers If the first bite is delicious, I want there to be the option for a second bite Despite this, I have found myself enjoying each of the collections of short fairy tales published by Rooglewood Press, and Five Magic Spindles is probably my favorite Fairy tale retellings are one of my favorite genres sub genres , and I m always looking for something new and surpris [...]


    25.

    27. A great little collection of stories for those who love fairy tales and plots inspired by them.As the cover said, these were inspired by Sleeping Beauty there are also Snow White tales and Beauty and the Beast tales in the same series I loved the diversity of this collection and the way each writer took the well known elements of the classic fairy tale and came up with their own unique twist.The first one The Man on the Buckskin Horse was a Western and was a great read, especially if you like th [...]
