    Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsSO. We all know that I love fairy tales. And while I'd had the Woodcutter Sisters on my TBR for years, a couple of months ago I wouldn't have even been able to tell you where my copy of Enchanted (book 1) was. Truthfully, I still don't know, but that sad fact was made irrelevant when I snagged the kindle version on sale for $1.99. *fist pumps*Anyway, the reason I hadn't actually gotten around to reading Kontis is . . . pretty silly . . . You see . . . I made an assumption [...]

    I finished this a while back, but I just felt so blah about it, that it's taken me forever to review it. And I still don't know what to say about it.Whatever. I'm just going to try to power through this.I really loved Enchanted, but the rest of these Woodcutter Sisters fairytales have been pretty unimpressive (to me). It's like Kontis picked out every character that I didn't give two shits about, and decided to base her books around them. This one features the sweet seamstress Friday. I mean, sh [...]

    One of my favorite book series doing a book based on one of my favorite fairy tales (Heavy breathing)


  • Beth

    Dearest is a quintessential fairy tale with Friday the constant optimus.Friday is left with cleaning up her sister Saturday's mess. Not that she's complaining. But it was a grave error for Saturday to call the ocean to the borders of Arilland. While Saturday is off on her pirate ship adventure, Friday finds herself a little over taxed. She ends up in charge of a gaggle of wayward children and all the responsibilities that entails. She discovers 7 cursed brothers, one of which is her mister right [...]

    If you've loved the other books in this series about the Woodcutter sisters, you're sure to adore Friday, undoubtedly the sweetest sister of the lot.Plus, there are so many nice twists and turns and fantastical surprises in this one!Cannot wait to write up my review!


  • Amy

    Pre read: Goose girl AND the wild swans???? oooohPost read:Bother. This book contained some of my all time favorite fairy tales and I still disliked it. There was so much going for it! The third in a now more developed series, Dearest contains all the flaws of Enchanted and Hero without some of their more redeeming aspects. First, this book does not stand well as a "stand-alone" companion novel in the series. It heavily depends on Enchanted and Hero for any sense of placement. Many loose ends fr [...]


  • Natalie

    *spoiler below*Dearest is the weakest of the Woodcutter Sister series. The book started out OK, not great but decent enough and then fell apart halfway through. The protagonist is a Mary Sue with ridiculous powerups that detract from whatever quality she could have had. And worst is her insta-love interest has no special defining character. They were pretty boring (alone and together) and were overshadowed by the rest of cast. *spoiler* and the wrong brother died. The only one who was allowed t [...]


  • Jean

    I received this book as part of a GoodReads first reads giveaway. (On my birthday, when I was having a particularly difficult time health-wise, so thank you, GR! Best birthday gift!)4.5 starsWith the first two books the Woodcutter Sisters series, Alethea Kontis proved to me that she was one of the most inventive and talented YA writers out there. with the third book, Dearest, she, in my mind, cements this reputation. Dearest focuses on Friday Woodcutter (Friday's child is loving and giving) and, [...]


  • Panda

    Well i think this may be my favorite book in this series yet. not only was it based on one of my favorite fairy-tales but i was swept up in this story so much i hardly put it down. that being said Friday did annoy me a little more than i thought she would in the first few chapters and for most of the book it felt like she wasn't really the main character of the story, but strangely i didn't mind that too much in this instance. the fact that this book takes place during hero however means that co [...]


  • Cheryl

    I have been eyeing this series for a while but had yet to read any of the books in the series. I got the chance to check this series out with book three. Which by the way the book can be read as a stand alone novel. I have been reading more fairy tale themed books. This genre is going to go far and I hope more authors jump on this band wagon. Anyways back to this book. I love the Woodcutter sisters. Although, with not having read the other books, Enchanted and Hero, I have not gotten to know the [...]


  • Rebecca Greer

    I loved the first in the series and was slightly disappointed with the second. The third book in the series helps to bridge missing gaps from the second and is just as fun as the first. I can't wait to meet the next woodcutter sister.


  • Emma

    Friday is an optimist and content with her life. She loves her family and her work as a talented seamstress. Her life is full.But even gentle Friday has to admit that her younger sister Saturday made an egregious error when she broke the world and called an ocean to the previously peaceful (and landlocked) borders of Arilland.While Saturday goes off to seek her fortunes on a pirate ship, her family is left behind to deal with the aftermath. Friday, in particular, soon finds herself in charge of [...]

    This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdActual Rating: 3.5 StarsMY THOUGHTSI really enjoy the books in Woodcutter Sisters series, though this one is probably my least favorite. I still enjoyed it, though!This book is focused on Friday, one of the Woodcutter sisters. After an ocean grows across the land, refugees stumble into the castle. Friday tries to help with the growing population, but ends up stumbling into a room full of naked men. Turns out that the men have been cursed t [...]


  • Luna

    Can this be my review: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!!No? Ok I’ll use actual words.I think Alethea Kontis has magic herself. Dearest is probably the closest I have ever come to the perfect fairytale book. It’s like it was written as my made to order dream story. Which is surprising because while I was sure I would enjoy it I didn’t expect Friday Woodcutter’s story to be the one I’d love so so so much.You know how you have songs you listen to on repeat? Movies you watch ov [...]


  • Morgan

    I'm glad to read that this is going to continue on with a book for each sister (aka 7 books in all) and then spin offs with Trix. Friday and Thursday are my favorites, and I was sad that Thursday had already found her pirate "prince charming". I didn't think she'd get a book. I'm also interested to see what happens with Monday and Wednesday, and if all 7 of them get a book does that mean Tuesday isn't really dead? *not a spoiler since that's something they all know as "true" from the first pages [...]


  • Lelia Taylor

    3.5 starsWhat drew me to the first book in the Woodcutter Sisters series and the second and, now, the third, is the covers. The designer is listed as Christine Kettner but, as Art Director, Ms. Kettner is not the actual artist. Whoever it is, that artist and Ms. Kettner have true magic in the their minds, eyes and fingers. I've seen other beautiful covers but these stand out and just one glance tells me this is an Alethea Kontis book; that's brilliant branding at its best.Opening Dearest takes t [...]

    I love this book, I did a review on my blog check it out! mrsjennyreads.wordpress/2


  • Alyssa

    Absolutely in love with this novel!!! They just keep getting better and better. Full review 2/17


  • Jenny

    I just love this series! I think this one may have been my favorite one yet!


  • Matina

    Alethea Kontis gets better with every book she writes. I fell in love with the Woodcutter sisters in Enchanted, fell in deeper with Hero, and have completely lost myself in Dearest. Friday’s story was endearing and wonderful. It doesn’t hurt that the story focused on some of my favorite fairy tales as well: The Wild Swans and The Goose Girl.The story picks up just before Saturday broke the world and we get to see what the rest of her family was doing while she was away. In the wake of the di [...]


  • Karissa

    I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley. This was a well done continuation of the Woodcutter Sisters, a series of fairy tale retellings featuring different sisters. I actually thought this was one of the most cohesive stories of the bunch. It's mainly a retelling of The Six Swans.This book tells the story of Friday, she is the sister who weaves and sews and is very kind and loving. While she isn't my favorite sister of the Woodcutter sisters I did think her magical skills were very [...]


  • Minna

    This book was a HOT MESS. There was just So. Much. Going. On. A mishmash of fairy tale stories, with not more than 50 pages total worth of plot between them. I can't even summarize in cohesive paragraphs how disappointed I was with this book so here are some random thoughts:-John, Michael and Wendy were Friday's Darlings (of COURSE they were. Poor J. M. Barrie.). I half expected their nurse-dog to be named Nana as well.-Enough with the seemingly endless undiscovered magical powers. It feels like [...]

    Friday's sister Saturday has accidentally made a huge magic ocean to appear where a big magic ocean has no place appearing. Sunday Friday's youngest sister and queen of the land opens up her castle to all the refugees her subjects misplaced by the ocean. Friday of course is one of those people and she takes care of the children of the refugees and loves doing so. When Friday finds 7 sleeping buck naked young men in the castle's magic tower she doesn't know what to think. When they wake up and st [...]


  • Margaret

    Friday Woodcutter is as simple and as complicated as her infamous patchwork skirt. She loves truly, feels deeply, and cares passionately--and these are all very different things. And she may be the key to saving the bespelled princess and her seven brothers, including Friday's dearest…What I likedI really love the characters in the Woodcutter family tales! Not just the sisters, although every one of them is wonderful, and I cannot wait for all their stories. But their mother and father, their [...]


  • Melanie

    I loved Enchanted and haven't had a chance to read Hero yet. There were parts in Dearest where I felt a little lost but it was easy to pick up on what was happening. It was fun to read about characters from the first book while meeting and getting to know new ones. Friday is kind and brave. I enjoyed her discussions with the orphans John, Wendy and Michael. Her first conversation with them was about dreams with pirates and flying and she refers to them as her "darlings." Once she learns of Trist [...]


  • Katie W

    I haven't read the other two books in the series yet. In some ways, I think they can stand alone--at least, this one could. But in other ways, I felt that I was missing some backlog and more information about side characters. This didn't keep me from thoroughly enjoying the story.I really enjoyed Friday. She is one of several sisters, each named after the days of the week, and has such a kind heart. Her "job" is to care for the palace orphans. She develops a way to keep them in line, while worki [...]


  • Heidi

    I was a bit confused at the beginning of this story, probably because I hadn't yet read the first two books in the series. But I quickly caught up and once I figured out Friday and her sisters I really began to enjoy the story. Friday is definitely someone I found myself able to root for whole-heartedly. Her kindness and love towards others made her a character I cared about greatly. And when she meets Tristan and finds out about the curse that afflicts him and his brothers and sister, she immed [...]


  • Erikka

    This book had the same positives and negatives of the other two books, which are enumerated in those reviews. However, there were some things about this book I liked more and some I liked less. There wasn't a great deal of random unexplained characters like in the first two, although Conrad and Mr. Humbug seemed weirdly random and unexplained (but they weren't main characters like in the other two books. But seriously, what's with her characters that appear out of nowhere with no explanation? It [...]


  • Jennifer Ricks

    I read it in a day. I think I've gotten used to her writing style, but I also think she's grown a lot as an author. She loves to plop you in the middle of things and to leave a lot of thing unanswered, but it's fun and never boring. I like how all three books are related but can also stand on their own. Same with the sisters. They're all related and alike, but each has her own very distinct personality. I really hope she keeps writing about them all!It's weird that she started with Conrad as POV [...]
