    Chasing Midnight is the kind of YA book that makes you fall back in love with YA again.Not that you ve ever really fallen out of love with it I mean, all I need to do is look up at my YA filled bookshelf to see proof of that but sometimes you can feel a little disenchanted by it It s like every YA book can be broken down into a series of cliches and recycled plot paths But not Chasing Midnight Funnily enough this book that is based on another tale the tale of Cinderella is far original than som [...]

    I designed the cover, so it s about time I read it Not the type of book I usually read, but 4 stars since it was well done I enjoyed the shoe thing at the end and the influence of the original Grimm Cinderella story.

    I have a teenager daughter who is always looking for new books, both YA and adult fiction, that are entertaining and clean Chasing Midnight has just would I would recommend for her This novel boasts a unique what if plot that allows the main character Mackenzie Love and reader to wonder and wonder through a day in the life of ourselves only like we wish we were But wait, is that what we really want This is fun experience for Kenzie and the reader to pursue and choose from two romantic interests [...]

    I think this is like A Christmas Carol not in the Christmas setting with a Cinderella ending than a Retelling of Cinderella MacKenzie Love gets her very own fairy Godmother in the form of a Bird Lady as MacKenzie has come to know her Kenzie has a brother who has terrible asthma that is a great brother, a set of younger boy twins who are all over the place, an older brother in college whom she begs to come home on the weekends, and eternally optimistic father and a healthy eating and great cook [...]


    books are love

    This is cinderella but not Cinderella We get a twist in the tale Mackenzie is on the outside looking in She has love outpouring from herself and her reasons for wanting change at first are pure Although not all her desires are But I think that it is those wants that help change her and see that the grass isn t always greener on the other side We see that no matter what side of the tracks you are on, there are secrets to be hold, problems and power to have.What Mackenzie thought she wanted in a g [...]

    A hard book to get through because of the main character snobby brat Not my kind of book to pick up, but glad I was able to read it because of the message on appreciating one s life, regardless of how hard one s life is Made me feel grateful for who I was raised to be not a snobby brat for sure


    Kate

    Pretty cool and multiple unexpected twists also teaches about friendship and sibling hood

    I ve been getting my thrill on fairy tale re tellings lately, so I was all smiles when I got my hands on this one My first thoughts this is not as magical as I thought it might be And that s a good thing least, as far as this tale is concerned.The main character, Mackenzie, doesn t have a perfect life Sure, she has people who love her and the bestie best friend ever, but her popularity is on the bottom and her family is battling issues, which would weigh anyone down My favorite thing about her i [...]

    I didn t really see the Cinderella retelling aspect other than the whole midnight thing and the shoes Nike Flynits It felt like a genie granting wishes that went wrong for Mackenzie Although the Bird Lady is supposed to be the fairy godmother, and Kenzie is the poor girl turned into princess , the actual wishes choice didn t have anything to do with the story of Cinderella by the Grimm Brothers, so that threw me off, but after getting past that, I got into the story and kept reading to find out [...]

    I was lucky enough to get an eARC of this book I am a huge fan of Courtney s books and a sucker for a fairytale retelling Courtney does a fantastic job with this story Mackenzie is an instantly likable character Her humor and charm are catching Oh, the funny lines that go through her head As much as I enjoyed Mackenzie s character, Cale stole the show for me, though He was a doll and so genuine I loved it when he was around Mackenzie dreams of being a lucky one , living on the top of Sea View dr [...]

    If you had a chance to get everything you ever dreamed of, would you trade everything you already have When Mackenzie Love gets the chance to try out her ideal life, she is surprised to learn that the big houses and the perfect nose and even great health have their downsides A fun, modern twist on Cinderella that kept me coming back to my phone to read which says a lot about the story because I m old and prefer my books to have real live pages Typical of the author, this book gets better and bet [...]

    Young adult fiction you d actually feel comfortable letting your teens read A modern day twist on the Cinderella story Interesting and likable characters in a sweet love story that also focuses on the importance of family, choosing good friends, and appreciating the blessings of the life you have even if it s not perfect.


    Caroline

    I loved this sweet story The friendship between Mackenzie and Aly was such a highlight for me I love it when female friendship is celebrated and focused on And what a dreamboat Cale turned out to be This is a great, fun read Added to the pleasantness my vacation, for sure


    Ella Olsen

    Chasing Midnight was a happily ever after with depth Mackenzie has to decide what makes her truly happy the wished for life or her old life with warts and all It s not easy to decide and the indecision kept me turning the pages to the very end


    Cheri

    I finally got around to reading this book It is a modern day retelling of Cinderella, a book that shows the consequences of choices that were made by Mckenzie and the impact that they had on her family and friends What a great book


    Natalie

    Always good to have a fluff book


    Amber

    Interesting take on be careful what you wish for with a bit of Cinderella thrown in.

    Slow start, great middle.
