This book is based off the new movie that is coming out and I for one am so excited for that movie, Maleficent is one of the best villains ever and personally i love movies or books or anything really that's from the villains perspective, when you get to see that maybe they didn't want to be the villain and maybe circumstances made them who they are. I loved this book and it just made me so much more excited for the movie. It's awesome and like all the trailers say a totally different story and it's just so much fun to read. It is really fast paced which I saw was what some peopled didn't like about it but it's based off a movie and movies are always more fast paced so more can happen in a short period of time, so that didn't really bother me it just allowed me to read and devour it faster.
Basically I loved everything about it and if you're a Maleficent/Sleeping Beauty fan and if you're super excited about the movie than this is a must read. Also the hardcover is beautiful and it's kinda the main reason I bought it in the first place. =)

Song Of The Moment - Once Upon A Dream by Lana Del Ray (I am the first to admit I'm not really a fan of this artist but hey it's a pretty/creepy version of the song and I think it probably fits really well with the movie)
