Fairy Tale Fortnight

I worship fairy tales, as anyone who reads this blog should know. I just stumbled across this 20 minutes ago. It sounds like lots of fun for all those who adore fairy tales. I look forward to all the interviews, reviews, and giveaways going on. They will help me add to my ever growing list of books I want to read.
I love Jessica Day George so much. I am going to start reading Princess of the Midnight Ball hopefully in the coming week, but I have several library books that will be soon overdue which makes them a higher priority. This is the giveaway for her books! But anyone who reads this SHOULD NOT (I REPEAT NOT) enter this because I want them.
The Healer's Apprentice was already on my to-read list, and then I saw that I could win it! That would make me so happy! It sounds like a wonderful retelling of Sleeping Beauty which I love! This is the giveaway for that!
The final giveaway that I'm so super excited about is The Princess and the Hound! I just bought The Princess and the Bear yesterday and I can't wait to start digging into it. Mette Ivie Harrison sounds like she's very talented. Entering this one will be somewhat harder. I need to come up with a good question about love or magic. I'm not very involved in either of those so I'm not quite sure what to ask.

UPDATE: As I continued clicking around on The Book Rat I saw another interesting giveaway. Zoë Marriott books. I heard about The Swan Kingdom through Squeaky Books. It sounds very interesting. I'd love to win it. Also, I love the question that all who enter must answer:  If you could retell any fairy tale, what would you retell and why? 
The Riddle. Not many know this fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm. I think it's interesting in so many ways. I would love to expand on it. All the characters are intriguing, and so I'd want to know more about them and their life stories and why they are the way that they are.


  1. Little spoiler for you, my dear: We have another JDG prize pack coming up...

  2. Oooh! Don't forget to come back and enter the rest of the giveaways! :)

    There's another one tomorrow too! :)


I love comments, and I promise I read every single one. I do my best to reply to all your meaningful comments, so come back in a couple days to see if I have! And if you see that I've responded to others comments and not yours, it's just because I've been struck dumb by your awesomeness! And if you leave me a link to your blog, I'll try to stop by and comment!

This is an award and tag-free zone! I'm honored, but I don't have the time to pass it along )=
