    1. Um I love this book. <3 <3 It was fairy tale. It was suspense. It was contemporary. It was romance. Actually, fairy tale retellings and love stories are the only two I would say I really like of that mix; but somehow, it all mixed together perfectly and made Waking Rose an utterly delightful story.Book Three in the A FAIRY TALE RETOLD series by Regina Doman, this tale centers on Rose and Fish, and is a modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty. Rose is off to college, along with her pining hear [...]

    2. Full disclosure: I wrote this book, but someone suggested I should add it to my shelf anyhow. I've certainly read it a number of times! I have to say this is one of my favorite books that I've written, and I'm glad so many people like it so much.

    3. A retelling of Sleeping Beauty. Rose and Fish were always my favorite characters so it came to no surprise when their book was my favorite of the series. It is brilliantly done but there is some more underlying mature themes. Abuse playing the biggest part. Recommended for 14+. Fan Mix 1. Losing Your Memory (Ryan Star) - Fish's POV\Rose2 Be Still (The Fray) - Fish's POV\Rose

    4. Initially I gave Waking Rose 4 stars but during the time it took me to organise my review, I decided it was worth 5 stars.This has been one of the most intriguing and fulfilling reads I've experienced in a long time. Waking Rose is a modern-day retelling of the classic fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty. In fact, each chapter begins with a quote from the original tale that, I think cleverly links the two stories.Athough I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the two things that stood out for me involved the " [...]

    5. I love fairytales. Always have, always will. There's something so inherently magical about them, and I love seeing how authors can rework that magic time and time again in order to tell a new story with the same universal themes. I think I read more retellings than anything else and while there have been a whole lot of duds, I've also found plenty of gems. Unfortunately, Waking Rose is not one of them.I wanted to like this book. I really did. Even though I'm not religious. Even though the whole [...]

    6. A complex novel of abuse, recovery, mental illness, inclusion, murder, mystery, activism, Faith! The craziness of those first years experienced when young adults leave their nest and venture into the outer world of college life, whether as newbie freshmen or advanced graduate students. Unlikely friendships as the strong nurture the weak with Kateri mentoring Donna in her mental illness, and Rose guiding Fish through abuse recovery. Fish’s loyalty to Rose, taken to the extreme, becomes unforgiv [...]

    7. This is my favorite book by Regina Doman. Rose is just so lively and interesting! Fish seems like her exact opposite, which makes the book even more fascinating. Throughout it you're wondering what will happen. Will Rose fall in love with someone else? Or will Fish overcome his struggles and fall in love with Rose? I've read this book twice now within six months and I could read it again tomorrow if I didn't have other things I have to do. This is an amazing story about love, struggles, failures [...]

    8. The most important thing you need to know about this book is that it’s all about Rose and Fish. Seriously, these two!! Rose heads off to a small Catholic university and we get introduced to a whole host of new characters – namely a groups of wannabe ninjas/knights from the boys’ dorms. These guys are the best and I’m still hoping a Sacra Cor guy will wander into my life.When Rose starts to dig into some old notes of her dad’s, things get interesting. It’s a Sleeping Beauty re-telling [...]

    9. I finished this book a few days ago and needed time to think before writing a review. Regina Doman's writing isn't the most polished I've ever read, yet her characters are so alive to me! She has a rare storytelling gift. Rose is a spunky, beautiful girl--a character who could easily become cliche and irritating--yet she is genuinely likable. And Fish (Benedict) is great. :-)This book has an intricate, suspenseful, action-packed plot filled with some wacky, entertaining characters, and some frig [...]

    10. Another Regina Doman treasure!! This was an awesome book; the ending was so perfect. I loved it! I'm not going to say any more because I know you don't want me to tell you what happpens before you read it, Mom. ;)

    11. Fantastic series! I was afraid these books would just be simple, silly romances but I was pleasantly surprised to be sucked into all the suspense and mystery! It's been a while since I've devoured a book in one or two sittings.

    12. While I enjoyed the book, there are some mature themes in the story. Author recommends for 16 and older and I agree with her recommendation.

    13. The best one of all three, in my opinion. Such a wonderful book for Catholics and for all who want to know what its like to be a True Catholic

    14. Some books take you traveling into space. Others bring you back in time. But then one day, when you least expect it, you come across a book that grabs your imagination and leads you on a road of adventures and suspense into a world of fairy tales with elements of the fantasy world, as well as elements of the world we live in. A book which deprives you of your precious sleeping hours because you become a character of the story. A character the author did not intend to create; nevertheless, you ar [...]

    15. I absolutely loved this book! So far it's my favorite from the Fairytales Retold series. The pace is great, and the characters are charming. Especially Rose!She is such a fun character, full of energy and life. She's like a little pixie! Even though she turns twenty in the book, she still acts like a kid. She is also self confident which is always a good example, and doesn't care what others think of her. She just acts like herself, not trying to " fit in" with society. She also is a good exampl [...]

    16. her books just keep getting better!! so cool part of it was based at my alma mater Steubenville!the story itself was so good. such suspense building! And then underlying are so many images of Christ waking us up and saving us from the devil. I will definetly be reading this series again!

    17. This book is absolutely amazing!!!! It is such an amazing real life telling of sleeping beauty. Definitely recommend to teens and young adults. My favorite book from the series!!!!!!!!!!

    18. Like Doman's other books, this is packed with very full-on reference to the Catholic religion. Doman is obviously far more religious than I, her teenage characters always having easy access to their rosary beads. However, despite that, and perhaps because I have recently come into contact with a group of very religious (not Catholic) teens, while feeling a little disbelief, I am comforted to know that there are kids who still have the confidence to believe. For me, my teenage and early adult yea [...]

    19. The third story of the Briers and the Dennistons is the most epic retelling so far. The events of this book are fantastical and test the suspension of disbelief the most out of the three, but are also well balanced with time for human relationship and introspection. Although the story continues the series' theme of the reality of good and evil in our modern world, some of its unique themes include suffering, unrequited love, mental health, unethical medicine, and sexual abuse. The setting of a p [...]

    20. Waking Rose was super amazing. This book was written before the whole Planned Parenthood selling baby parts illegally scandal, which is actually a bit disturbing because Regina Doman knocked it out of the ball park with such accuracy it is downright chilling.Book 3, if you look at the ratings, is CURRENTLY the most popular Fairy Tale Novel book (In the future, it might change, but as I'm writing this, it is now the favorite). There are some reasons why:a. Sleeping Beauty, the fairy-tale being re [...]

    21. I read this book as a young adult, and while I loved that the author was a traditional catholic writer like me, I had three major issues with this book in particular.1. The author seems to share Michael O'Brien's opinion that symbols have to mean the same thing every time to everyone (primarily, that serpents always have to be evil). This was only slightly annoying compared to reading some of O'Brien's own books, like the Plague Journal, but enough to be a fly buzzing in my ear. Serpents were ev [...]

    22. actually 3.5 but i decided to round up.I love fairy tales. I don't think I have mentioned this in my reviews of other retold fairy tales but i even took a class in fairy tales in college.Doman did an excellent job on all three book (The Shadow Of The Bear: A Fairy Tale Retold, Black as Night: A Fairy Tale Retold, and Waking Rose: A Fairy Tale Retold in not only setting the tale in present day but also keeping the deeper meanings of the fairy tales.This book is probably the best of the three for [...]

    23. Book Review: Black as NightWaking RoseAuthor: Regina DomanThese two books are the second and the third in a series of Fairy Tales retold. When I read the first book Shadow of the Bear, although I enjoyed the book, I felt the author Ms. Doman was a little weak on characterization and plot. In the second and third book Ms. Doman makes up for these shortcomings. In each book she choses two of the four main characters and has the story revolve around them. In the second book Black as Night she has c [...]

    24. I give this book a 50/50 because there were elements I really enjoyed about this book and there were elements I disliked about the book. I like how Doman quoted the Grimm fairy tale at the beginning of each chapter. The Grimm's fairy tale was what she was trying to recreate and I thought it was a nice reminder to her audience. At first I didn't appreciate that her characters appeared to go out of their way to use big words whenever necessary. At first it felt snotty to me and gave the characters [...]
