Fairy Tale Giveaway Hop



Who doesn't love a good fairy tale? I grew up with a lot of the Disney versions, but I've always loved fairy tales- Disney or not ;)
I spent an awful lot of time as a child dreaming of being whisked away by a handsome Prince! 
Or a not so handsome Prince- I'm not fussy!

And I'm assuming I'm not the only one, as there are so many books out there that are re-tellings or based on fairy tales. And if you enjoy Fairy Tale books, then you're in luck because I'm having a giveaway where you could win 1 of 8 different books with a fairy tale theme!

The Books:



An Offer From A Gentleman
Julia Quinn


Cinder 
Marissa Meyer





Entwined
Heather Dixon


The Bride and the Beast
Teresa Medeiros




A Kiss In Time
Alex Flinn



Scarlet 
A. C. Gaughen


Splintered
A. G. Howard




The Duke Is Mine
Eloisa James








So there you have it! It took quite some time for me to whittle down the choices to just 8, but I did it. I've tried to make sure that there is something for everyone, although they will all have romance elements too- this is a blog about romance books after all!

The Giveaway:

As part of the hop, I'm giving one lucky person their choice of one of the above books. 
The book will be sent from the Book Depository, so it is open INTERNATIONALLY as long as they ship to your country.
Fill out the rafflecopter below and make sure you leave a comment with what your favourite fairy tale is, and which book you'd choose if you win!
(Just a note: the covers of the books may vary- it depends what is available at TBD)

**Once the winner is selected, they will have 48 hours to respond to the e-mail sent, or a new winner will be chosen. So make sure, the e-mail you enter is correct!**

    I haven't read ANY of these so I am intrigued by them all! If I had to choose though, I'd probably either go with Cinder or Splintered, since they've been talked about a lot in the blogging world but I haven't gotten my hands on either.

  116. I would choose "An Offer from a Gentleman."
    I love fairy tales. I actually wrote a paper for my Literary Non-Fiction class about the resurgence of fairy tales in popular culture. This was last year when the two movies based on "Snow White" came out along with the tv show "Once Upon a Time…" and then "Cinder" came out. It was quite an explosion of fairy tales in mediums. I concluded that because of the rough economic times, people were grasping for something to escape to. In fairy tales, the impossible happens. The disenfranchised become the heroes and heroines. They rise to power and usually become a King or Queen. We are still clinging to the American dream and through the use of fairy tales we get to live that dream. As far as my favorite fairy tale goes, I love "Beauty and the Beast." I love it so much that I have thought seriously about naming my first daughter Belle. In books, I love retellings of fairy tales like "Cinder" and "Ella Enchanted." In TV, the show "Beauty and the Beast" on the CW is one of my favorites and in movies, I loved "Mirror, Mirror," "Beastly" and "The Wizard of Oz." Also, a big fan of the musical "Wicked."
    Thanks for the giveaway!
