  • To think that I was convinced this would be THE fairytale of the year I should have trusted the saying regarding pretty covers because this is DNF for me The dialogs are childish, Rapunzel is extremely whiny, Jack is damn boring and lacks the sparkle he should have had and weird random fairies accompany the story when they don t even need to be there or so I find, because they re deeply annoying This is not worth it I recommend watching the Disney movie again, instead.

  • Put it on your list, preorder it, and then preorder the next one just to save yourself a little time, because you are not getting through Tyme 1 without wanting Tyme 2 It s just fantastic I don t even know what else to say Get it

  • Fairy tale retellings are my catnip, especially when the story incorporates multiple fairy tales Both Rapunzel and Jack the Beanstalker take the stage in Grounded, and their story is unlike any other that I have read The third person narrative packs all the heart, voice, and emotion that first person narratives often do and provides the reader with uncountable moments of witty, hilarious, and meaningful dialogue There wasn t a second after I passed the first page that I wasn t eager to keep read [...]

  • I love fairy tale retellings, but there are a lot of them out there, so I do not publish them lightly This one TOTALLY WORTH IT The best way I can describe it is Rapunzel meets Harry Potter another thing I do not do lightly make comparisons to HP , because the fairy tale unfolds in a world as rich as the Wizarding world in past history, present action, delightful details and because it encompasses the same range of tones that HP has truly a book that made me laugh, cry, gasp, and long for the ne [...]

  • This book is fabulously well written The author spent 10 years building this alternative fairy tale world and all her work shows I just finished an adult Rapunzel story Bitter Greens which has a cornerstone kernel of truth in the historical character of Charlotte Rose de Caumont de La Force, who wrote the original story of Rapunzel in the 1600 s I gave Megan Morrison a silent standing ovation when she gave a nod to this bit of historical truth by having Rapunzel s grandmother call her Charlotte [...]

  • ReRead Review I ve been wanting to read this again for some time because I loved it so much originally and knew there was a lot of nuance and hidden details in this world And I m SO glad I did The characters are even better than I remembered, complex and three dimensional I adore Rapunzel and the journey she goes on physically and emotionally I love her enemiees to friendship relationship with Jack who I believe is of Asian descent based on his description I didn t pick up on that the first time [...]

  • Synopsis Rapunzel lived in a tower, and she had everything she wanted Witch gave it to her Witch loved her And Rapunzel was happy That is, until a boy climbs her tower and claims that they ve met Even weirder, they met Yesterday But how is that possible Rapunzel would have remembered So, Rapunzel decides he s lying Yet somehow, he has her handkerchief Could what he say be true Then, he steals a rose and runs off What choice does Rapunzel have She follows him And thus begins the adventure of a li [...]

  • I m giving this book five perfect stars for changing my perspective about Rapunzel s situation.You see I love Rapunzel, as evidenced by my never changing profile picture She has a special place in my fiction world, so please understand if I m a bit overprotective of her.In this book, she went from being a nauseatingly closed minded witch loyalist to a young lady with hopes and dreams, ready to face the world WITH BOTH EYES OPEN I love that I love how fiction found a little space for realism I me [...]

  • A lovely, unique take on Rapunzel plus Jack and the Beanstalk technically If you enjoy adventure stories and fairy tale retellings, check this out A few spoiler ish rambles view spoiler I love how it ended with Witch I was waiting for Rapunzel s memory to go and the Princes to save the day and Rapunzel to somehow get her memory back but this was much better It sums up a very complicated relationship between Rapunzel and Witch, and the very complicated character of Witch Just when I had her figur [...]

  • A delightful alternative retelling of Rapunzel I brought the book home to peruse, never intending to actually read it, but was instantly captivated Morrison builds a fantasy world that is described in a way you can easily picture the setting without being bogged down in details We are whisked away on an adventure as Rapunzel transforms from a rather annoyingly naive prisoner to a courageous, quick thinking, kind hearted girl No rescues from Prince Charming needed, this gal is strong enough to ta [...]

  • The author has created a rich, captivating world in GROUNDED Her main character is drawn with depth and complexity It was satisfying to see that while Rapunzel changed and grew as a person during her adventures, some of her core qualities were established early on and consistently displayed throughout.Love is a central theme in the book, but it is never portrayed as easy or simple Looking forward to the next installment

  • If you think you know Rapunzel, think again This Rapunzel is perfectly happy in her tower, thank you very much, where her Witch takes care of all her needs and none of those bothersome princes can hurt her But when Jack of beanstalk fame climbs in through the window, Rapunzel sets off on a quest to save her beloved Witch, and learns about the world than she expected Morrison takes us on a journey alongside her, introducing us to the mystical, magical land of Tyme and its inhabitants familiar fa [...]

  • I absolutely loved this book Clever, funny, fast paced, gorgeous writing, details and descriptions that drop you in this fantasy world, memorable characters I can t think of anything that was lacking The characters would arrive at a destination or overcome a challenge and I d wonder, Oh, is it going to get boring now The answer was always a resounding NOPE Turn the page and there s another challenge for the characters to face, or a mysterious new character Highly recommend.

    Buddy read with the awesomesauce Anne because if you think I can resist this combo Set to commence at some point in or around September 15th.

  • This book was so o good I LOVED it The main characters are Rapunzel, Jack, and Witch It starts of with Rapunzel in her tower one night she s just relaxing as normal until, she hears a strange noise At first she thinks its just her witch coming to visit her before bed, but it turns out to be a strange boy Rapunzel s only knowledge of the outside world is what her witch has told her and the books her witch had written for her In Rapunzel s life these are facts 1 All boys are princes2 They all are [...]

  • This book took a while about fifty pages to hit its stride The beginning is so boring and confusing that I nearly gave upbut then it got really good I loved Rapunzel and her character development, wow and Jack and I really really loved the world building the Shattering might be my new favorite backstory I loved the way Morrison thought out the psychological results of being locked in a tower your whole life Negatives The beginning is SO DULL I didn t really like Purl and her gang I know, I m a h [...]

  • I ll admit that I was a little skeptical when I first started this book I didn t like Rapunzel, and I wasn t sure where the story was going As it progressed, I really started to enjoy myself Rapunzel turned out to be a pretty strong character and it ended differently than I expected The only part of the story that I didn t really like all that much was Prince Frog I was expecting something else to happen and when it didn t, I was disappointed That was my fault for having expectations I guess Ove [...]

  • This book was so so so so good The plot was incredibly rich and full of danger, excitement, suspense, and mystery a lot of mystery The villain was so incredibly complex and Rapunzel s relationship with her even so I adored seeing the villain through Rapunzel s eyes when everyone around her knew the truth about the villain and thus hated her.Not to mention Rapunzel who was such a sweet, incredibly honest, open, scared, uncertain, and INNOCENT girl who, in finding the world, finds herself as well [...]

  • Grounded The Adventures of Rapunzel retells the old fairy tale with aplomb, invention, and heart Cosetted and sheltered, Rapunzel doesn t want to leave her perfect tower or her loving Witch But when Witch is threatened, Rapunzel follows an adventurer named Jack out of the tower, resentful every step of the way A wise red Fairy tells Rapunzel that as she wanders the wider world of Tyme, the girl must listen to its people and expand her horizons And listen she does And as for horizons, Morrison in [...]

  • 3.5 stars.The last 150 pages or so were really very good, but before that, man, I had a lot of trouble getting into it It was boring and so confusing I likely would have given up, had not my sister quite enjoyed it, so I am glad she d read it before me.One of the absolute highlights was how the psychological aspect was written Rapunzel has been brought up by a villain , lied to her whole life about literally everything, and is usually portrayed as, you know, naive but well adjusted and mostly tr [...]

  • Emotionally Resonant Fairy Tale Adaptation, Amazing ClimaxI rarely cry reading books, but this one was an exception The final confrontation which is entirely a conversation between our defiantly herself protagonist and the morally complex villain left me a wreck in a good way I would compare the last 100 pages or a bit over a quarter of the book to the climactic sections of Watership Down or Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and that is extremely high praise coming from me.Before that, t [...]

  • Grounded is an immensely imaginative take on the story of Rapunzel, exploring friendship, family, and the meaning of bravery.In this tale, Rapunzel freely leaves her tower when she believes the witch whom she fondly calls simply Witch is in danger, and that it s up to her to keep the only family she has ever known safe Her journey brings her, and new acquaintance Jack the Beanstalker, clear across the land of Tyme, through places and people she never even knew existed The journey is of one of pe [...]

  • WOW junior fiction has come a long way since I was younger I am definitely really enjoying fairy tale retellings What a beautiful story Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen Morrison just flips everything around Her themes of love, acceptance and loyalty are written so beautifully This is just a fantastic book for anyone to read I absolutely love how the events came together Around the middle of the book I started to waver on it but good thing I didn t stray too far Let s be honest [...]

  • Cuuuute That was a fun little adventure I like Fantasy books like this, with friends journeying together The characters especially Witch were complex than I expected too Rapunzel wasn t my favorite tbh but she grew on me a bit toward the end Intrigued to see what can happen in the rest of the books

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this Both this and the sequel were so refreshing and had actual twists on the original fairy tales without losing the feeling that they were fairy tales.
