GHBT Review - First Frost (First Frost #1) by Liz DeJesus @Liz_DeJesus23

Blurb:  Fairytales aren’t real…yeah…that’s exactly what Bianca thought. She was wrong.

For generations, the Frost family has run the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts, handing down guardianship from mother to daughter, always keeping their secrets to “family only.”

Gathered within museum’s walls is a collection dedicated to the Grimm fairy tales and to the rare items the family has acquired: Cinderella’s glass slipper, Snow White’s poisoned apple, the evil queen’s magic mirror, Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted spinning wheel…

Seventeen-year-old Bianca Frost wants none of it, dreaming instead of a career in art or photography or…well, anything except working in the family’s museum. She knows the items in the glass display cases are fakes because, of course, magic doesn’t really exist.

She’s about to find out how wrong she is.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!
**Received the ebook as part GHB tour for an honest review.

Cover doesn’t do much for me personally, but the blurb hooked me.

I really like this story based on fairy tales.  It seems to be a recurring theme lately in both in books, TV, and movies.  There were a few slow parts, but it was building the story and completely necessary.  Could you imagine fairy tales being real? What if magic were real?  This story has all sorts of magic, action, and surprises.  I can’t wait to read the next book to see where it goes.  I wish I could get this book in paperback to share with my students in the classroom, but it looks like it is only available in ebook format.

I recommend this story to all those girls who love classic fairy tales but want a new twist on them.
