Good Kindle Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Women Writers Explore Their Favorite Fairy Tales This collections concerns one of my favorite topics--people talking about their favorite fairy tales. I've always loved hearing which stories people gravitate towards, though there's one essay where the author points out that when adults answer this question they can't help but talk about it from an adult perspective. In other words, they might have adored a story for months as a kid and now they only remember the one that it seems like they should like now.This may or may not be the reason that some stories show up again and again. "The Girl Who Trod on a Loaf" and "The Juniper Tree" are not stories that are considered standards, and it made sense that they'd made great impressions on many women, perhaps especially ones that grew up to write. "The Snow Queen" seems to have similar appeals.No one essay stands out over any others to me, but I enjoyed them all. I do wish there'd been one that really excited me, but that's less about the essays quality and more about my personal issues not always connecting with the authors.
