Fairytale Magic Blog Hop!

fairy tale hop*swoon* I LOVES fairy tales. I always have.I am so happy to join  Herding Cats and Burning Soup blog hop to see get recommendations for fairy tales to add to my TBR mountain and to see who may share the same favs already.
Yes. I was one of those girls who liked Disney princess movies… My favorite is actually Belle, cause she had brown hair (like I did before I went red 😉 ) and she loved to read and she didn’t let society dictate how she viewed people.
I adore Robin McKinnley’s retelling of this fairy tale soooo that’s my giveaway, A print copy of Beauty:A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast
Unfortunately it’s not available in ebook format soooo if an international entry wins I will give the winner a $7.00 USD value gift card from Amazon.

The Book Tart prize is at the bottom of this post. 😀
May the odds be ever in your favor.

  1. My fairy fandom started with Cinderella but Beauty and Beast overtook it when Disney released that movie … Little Mermaid is third. I too am a fan of the Disney princesses! 🙂

  2. I very much enjoyed the new movie maleficent. It was such a twist change from the orgnial story sleepy beauty, I enjoyed that ( hearing / watching it told differently!)

  3. I like Ever After movie, a depiction of Cinderella, starring Drew Barrymore. I have liked other versions as well Ella the enchanted too.

  4. I love most of them, lol! I haven’t read any re-tellings, to be honest, but I do love Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid.

  5. My favorite tale is Thumbelina, sadly I haven’t come across a retelling yet. So, I’ll go with Disney’s retelling of the Little Mermaid;)

  6. Actually, Beauty IS one of my favorite re-tellings! It was one of the first books I read that retold and old story and I loved it 🙂

  7. I love this book too! Also really enjoy Mercedes Lackey’s retellings in her Elemental Masters series, and the Elizabeth Scarborough Fairy Godmother series, and Kristine Grayson’s (Kristine Katherine Rusch) Charming and Fates series, so much fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. A retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan, done by a self publisher. I have passed the books on to a friend a while ago so I can’t remember the author to tell you…
