OHMYGOD! Alex Flinn is a girl, I mean a woman! All this time, I thought she was a guy. Like a man-man. Like Rick Riordan who retells(is this even a verb?) Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology. This would totally change my perspective in reading his---I mean her books. I am so regretting that OHMYGOD. Oh here I go again, using the Lord's name in vain. I swore not to but it's hard when you're so surprised. Honestly, I am. Anyway, I read the premise and I do not know what retelling would this be. It [...]

Ok so I LOVE fairy tale retellings. But I don't know these ones and discovered that kind of takes the joy out of a retelling. I recognized the themes of The Frog Prince and The Elves & the Shoemaker, but there were a TON of other fairy tales going on as well. There's a list in the back that included The Six Swans, The Golden Bird, The Valiant Tailor, The Salad (??), and more. So it kind of got a bit chaotic at times. But even if you don't know the original stories it still feels like a typic [...]

Before anything I have to mention that for some reason I assumed that this was a re-telling of Red Riding Hood , and for those of you (probably not too many because I'm exceptionally dim sometimes) who thought it was as well I'm here to tell you it isn't. There is a cloak in the story, but no oblivious girls or furry looking grandmothers in sight. This story follows the life of Johnny, a seventeen-year-old who aspires to be a shoe designer, but what he does is help out with his family's business [...]

Cloaked is an enjoyable, fun, and adventurous book. Alex Flinn is well known to write Fairy Tale Retellings and I've only read Beastly, which I really like. In this book, it's a mash-up fairy tales and most of them are unfamiliar to me (I only knew The Frog Prince).The first half of this book is indeed fast paced and I'm enjoying the main character's quest as he helps a gorgeous Princess to save his brother who's cursed by a witch to become a Frog. Now the Frog Prince is missing, Princess Victor [...]

I vowed not to take the book too seriously and just to go with where it would take me given the constant reference to its nature It is a FAIRY TALE RETELLING. So just take it at face value and don’t expect any mind-blowing revelations (Although any such revelations would not be unwelcome.) Am I glad I attacked it with this light perspective. I most definitely enjoyed CLOAKED. Once I had shucked off my expectations, Johnny’s story became entertaining though of course, most definitely unbeliev [...]

Via onlectus/2013/01/This book would make a wonder animated movie for children. Yes, for CHILDREN!Johnny is poor, and he works in the family's shoe repair business in South Beach and secretly wishes to be a famous shoe designer. Her mom has just taken a second job because they don't even make enough in the business to pay the bills. One day, a princess (real princess from another country) comes to South Beach and, what are the odds? - meets Johnny! Even more, she asks for his help to rescue her [...]

Mash up of several fractured fairy tales by the author of Beastly. Johnny is a hard-working 17-year-old who works in a shoe repair store in a fancy Miami hotel. He designs shoes, but since his dad disappeared years ago, the family has barely been able to scrape by, let alone send Johnny off to college, or fashion school, or wherever you go to become a famous shoe person like Jimmy Choo. And no, Johnny’s not gay. He just likes shoes. Okay? Okay.Ah-hah, you think! Shoes! There will be elves! And [...]

This is the worst Alex Flinn books I've ever read. Hell, this could quite possibly be one of my least favorite books I've ever read.I LOVE Alex Flinn's books. I love her characters, the plots, her writing style, everything! I could read both Beastly, Breathing Underwater, and Breaking Point over and over and OVER AND OVER. So when I saw this book at my school's libraryI was pretty dang excited. Beastly is my favorite Flinn, so I was likeFAIRY RETELLING LETS GO.Let me tell you, I've never been so [...]

3.5 starsIf you go into this with the expectation that this is a light fairytale retelling, you'll probably like this one.I was expecting it to be a modern version of The Frog Prince, and even though that is one of the main fairytales in this book, it's not the only one. At the end of the Book, Flinn lists all of the stories that she drew from, and there were waaay more than I was expecting. One of the stories I wasn't even familiar with (The Salad?). There are (I felt) three main retellings goi [...]

I feel like the best word to describe Cloaked would be ‘cute’.Cute can mean any number of things, with both negative and positive connotations depending on the context. There’s ‘little baby with chubby cheeks’ cute. There’s ‘guy with nice eyes and a pleasant smile’ cute. There’s ‘seven year old girl who purposely talks in a high pitched baby voices’ cute, which is annoying. There’s ‘don’t be cute with me’ cute, when you try to be witty and your parents get all offen [...]

-POTENTIAL SPOILERS- Before I knew anything about this book aside from the title, I automatically assumed this was a Little Red Riding Hood retelling, and I was a bit disappointed when I found out it wasn't. There aren't enough good ones out there of that fairy tale. Anyway, this is just a hodgepodge of various Grimms' Fairy-Tales, all because in her first book readers had no idea what Snow White and Rose Red was. Seriously?! Will you people read a book?! Who DOESN'T know that fairytale!? Especi [...]

Johnny fixes shoes and dreams of designing his own, along with paying the bills, saving the family business, and helping his mom so she doesn’t have to work a second job. Then the princess of Aloria arrives. And she wants Johnny—JOHNNY—to rescue her brother. Whom she claims was turned into a frog by an evil witch, then set loose in the Florida keys.She’s even willing to marry the guy who rescues her amphibian relation.Of course, Johnny’s not buying it. Like there might actually be tran [...]

Meh - 2.5 starsThis book contains mashup of fairy tale retellings including "The Elves and the Shoemaker," "The Frog Prince," "The Six Swans," "The Golden Bird," and "The Brave Little Tailor." It's a light, quick read, that's supposed to be funny, but the humor didn't come across for me.Johnny who works at his family's shoe repair shop, is chosen by the beautiful princess Victoriana, to go on a quest to rescue her brother who has been turned into a frog by an evil witch. If he triumphs, he is to [...]

Towards the end of January, I was selected by GoodReads to be an advance reader of "Cloaked" by Alex Flinn. I'm not really sure why, as I haven't written a review there. In fact, I had only made a basic account and I hadn't started using the website to its full potential yet. I don't think I'm optimizing it now My plan is to use it to catalog all the books I've read in 2011, since one of my goals for this year was to read 300 books. I've never really counted how many books I've read in a year, b [...]

Rarely do I rate a book so low. And honestly I really would have given this one star but there were a lot of obscure fairy tales included which I love and talking animals so it was entertaining in that respect. Otherwise it was an epic fail. Johnny was just a dumb hero. He never did what he was supposed to. He was impulsive and just kind of a ditz. Just follow the damn instructions you're given but nooo he always would do some dumb shit and then get into trouble. I won't even get into how oblivi [...]

Being the fan of fairy tales that I am, I had heard of Alex Flinn, of course.  But for whatever reason, I had never read anything by her, so Cloaked is my first.  And I have to start by saying: SHE USED THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER!!!Let me set the scene for you:Misty, as a small child, had 3 books she was obsessed with.  One was The Velveteen Rabbit, which we don't need to discuss here, other than to say she still has it, of course.  The other 2 were fairy tales: somebody's (?) beautiful ver [...]

I wasn't really expecting much from this book (don't really know why), so at least it wasn't a complete disappointment. No doubt I was still unimpressed. I haven't readBeastly , which is also by Alex Flinn, but I don't think I'll be reading it since this one was just plain annoying. This book started out ok. About halfway through I was thinking it would be a 3-star rating. But 60% of the way through, this book fell apart. I ended up skimming through the second half and wishing that it would be o [...]

Review re-written on December 14th, 2013 DNF at 24% This is all I have to say: BORING. YesI am being rude but I have a rule for 1 star books, and that is that if the book bores me to death(literally)I can't finish it and I have to be honest, REALLY honest in my review. So, yes Cloaked was BORING. Which was a big disappointment for me.I am a huge fan of Alex Flinn and I loved her book Beastly. Beastly was just so detailed, beautiful, and a modern fairy tale. It was a re-tell of Beauty and the Bea [...]

This book was an okay read. It was just so confusing because it was based off of so many different fairy tales that I had trouble of keeping track of what was actually going on. I also found the story to be really predictable. I guessed that he would end up with Meg and that the fox was actually his father pretty early on. Also the accents in this book annoyed me very much. Also the ending with the villain was so vague. We never really learn what happens to the witch and her son. The more that I [...]

Cloaked was extremely childish and the plot did not flow smoothly. The main character, Johnny, was actually stupid. The things he said and did were completely ignorant. The author tried to mash a bunch of fairy tale retellings together and failed. The dialogue was also poor. The prince and princess spoke in the most annoying accent where every other word started with the letter z. I enjoyed two other books by this author but this is the last one I will read.

After (<---wonderful book) I'll certainly read another modern fairy tale of Alex Flinn.

4.5 stars LOVED this quick fast paced adventure that I couldn't put down the book until I finished it oh man these characters are so adorable I can't even describe how cute they are the story is basically a bunch of retellings of less known fairy tales and it is told in a series of adventure johnny and his best friend Meg have in a quest to find an enchanted frog for princess Victoriana love this so much and it is a really nice adventure :D

"When you find out the person you love, loves you, you can't delay. You have to hurry"May I be the first to say, "AWWWW!". Throughout the entire book, I was displaying 4 types of emotions:1) Aww-that's-so-cute-he's-so-cute-they're-so-cute2) Why-can't-I-have-love-like-that-I-guess-I'll-be-forever-alone3) LOL4) Omg-I-did-not-see-that-coming-where-the-hell-did-that-come-fromLet's cut to the chase now, shall we?This book was amazing. Go read itOh, you're waiting for a review? An elaboration on why t [...]

Dear god, reading through this is like dragging yourself off the bed in a Monday morning.I got no problem with the concept. I mean, who doesn't want to read a mixture of fairytale retellings in one? But unfortunately, this book fell short in its execution.If there's a medal for the most absurd book I've ever read, this might be on my top ten. Of course, it is a story based on several fairytales and we all know that fairytales aren't really supposed to be logical or sensible. But Cloaked has a di [...]

"Stranger things have happened- and recently too."Cloaked was my first encounter with Alex Flinn, the author behind the fairy tale retelling Beastly. Like Beastly, Cloaked takes a young man in modern times and throws him into the world of fairy tales. In this case the young man is Johnny, a cobbler who dreams of making enough money so that him and his mother don't have to constantly worry about loosing the family business. Johnny also designs shoes in his spare time, making them out of fabric sc [...]

This was an amazing mash-up of a multitude of fairy tales. Throughout the book we stumble upon retellings of many classic and lesser known tales - "The Elves and the Shoemaker," "The Frog Prince," "The Six Swans," "The Golden Bird," and "The Brave Little Tailor." I love how Ms. Flinn updates and changes the tales to blend together into one amazing journey. The hero, Johnny, is teenage a shoemaker, working in his family's shop and trying to help his mother make ends meet. He is the epitome of a r [...]

more reviews hereI really liked how Alex Flinn modernized a whole bunch of little fairytales and stuck them together to make a great modern fairytale. Although I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would, it was still enjoyable.Johnny works at his family’s shoe repair shop in a hotel, working long hard hours to help pay all the bills. One day, the princess of Aloria comes and stays at the hotel where Johnny works. She comes find Johnny and makes a proposal. She wants him to go on a quest t [...]

Whatever you do, don't take this book seriously. It's meant to be light and fluffy and fun. It succeeds at that, mostly. There are half a dozen fairy tales crammed in here, not just The Frog Prince, including one that I honestly don't think I've heard of before, The Salad. Despite that, it's fast paced but not rushed, and each of the stories gets a fair shot in the spotlight. But the romance isn't terribly exciting, and that may have more to do with the characters themselves than anything else. [...]

I really enjoyed Alex Flinn’s modernized fairy tales, Beastly and a Kiss in Time, so I was really looking forward to this newest book. I felt it didn’t really deliver. There were so many pieces of different fairy tales involved that it got to be a little much. [return][return]Johnny works in his mother’s shoe repair shop in a pricey hotel. In his spare time he designs shoes. Then the princess Victoriana checks into the hotel. She asks for his help in rescuing her brother who has been turne [...]

I really enjoyed Cloaked. I had read two other books by Alex Flinn, and while they were entertaining, this one is my favorite because I really liked the two main characters.I liked the hero a lot. He was super nice and yet struggled with lots of things. He was so endearing. It was a sweet story that included a hodge-podge of traditional stories and fairy tales. It was never boring, and it had a very nice ending. I would recommend this book to young people, because it included a lot of values and [...]
