A Kiss at Midnight

A Kiss at Midnight (Fairy Tales #1) - Eloisa James Guilty pleasure/brain candy kind of a read.Or research for fairy tale retellings, perhaps?This was a quick, sort of fun read, but it was ultimately disappointing. Some of the set up at the beginning felt really forced and false (a certain amount of info had to get dumped on the reader, and the way the author did it was kind of dumb: we are learning it at the same time as the main character, and I couldn't figure out why she didn't already know this stuff...)I do like James's humor, but over all this was kind of MEH for me.The Cinderella elements were "visible" but not forced. It was everything else that seemed like it was trying too hard.
