More than half the time, I was just utterly confused. This book is one of the many reasons why I love fairytales and their re-tellings so much! And, of course she falls in love with him.
I really loved the Woodcutter family – named after the days of the week – they all have their very own personality based on an old rhyme. It’s distracting, hard to follow and by the end downright obnoxious. Encnanted case that isn’t clear: It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week.
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt pp. It had so many problems, though It has a very rough feel, for all that the writing style is pretty palatable. Princess Monday is only there to alehtea sure there are seven Woodcutter sisters. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. One of the biggest flaws of this novel is that it almost feels like a sequel.
If your true love has left leaving only a shoe, is that really the size of the hole in your heart? The story is not only beautiful, lyrical, and incredibly sweet it is one that I could read over and over again.

Dearest The Woodcutter Sisters.
Both Sunday and Rumblod are descendent of such family that has no history of good relationship in past. Sunday is a beautiful girl that gets to wear beautiful dresses, but she’s lacking the fire of her Pirate Queen sister Thursday, or the grit of her hard-working sister Saturday.
The main character Sunday, the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter, meets a talking frog at the fairy well behind her family’s house. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? As the story progresses, you begin to realize that things are never explained, don’t make any sense, or just make you head smoke trying to pull a semblance of sense of it.
First you get the idea he was a quiet young man, with no friends, then suddenly he is a wild womanizer with a dreadful past he can’t quite remember. Their adventures could fill several novels but are all crammed into the first fifty pages of this one as info-dumping.
