I hope you're enjoying your Saturday 💖 I just got home from Disney Princess on Ice, which was pretty fun. I do like Disney movies and love fairytale retellings in general. 👑 I'm definitely excited to work on my own story later tonight (after date night!), which is about a princess named Ailsa (and includes fairies, too!). Do you have a favorite fairytale retelling or "princess movie"? I love Beauty and the Beast 🌹 .

What are some of your favorite books with strong world building?
For me, the first answer is always the HP series. The world building in those books is so intricate & well-thought out that it blows my mind!
****
Who's been to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter? 🙋 My daughter & I went this past year for Christmas, & it was literally like stepping inside the pages of the books. That's where I got the chocolate frog!

#authorlifemonth day 17 goals accomplished - plan a physical book tour. This fall I'll be hitting the road with FBt! Details to come, but that's what all the colored spaces in my planner are. 🎉
#riotgrams day 17 an unreturned book - I definitely kept the first HP book out of the library longer than any other until I bought a copy.
#lilfavoritethings day 17 - #booksandchocolate
#rosytaleslovelists day 17 gift I love - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which I got for Christmas the year it came out & spent all day in my room reading it, much to my parents' chagrin 😂

I finished White Oleander last night and have so many thoughts about it. It’s certainly a story that will stick with me forever, but I can’t say that it’s become an all time favorite. It was at times a *little* too emotionally manipulative, the writing occasionally a *little* too overwrought. Having said that, I couldn’t put it down, it left me with so much to chew on, and the ending was perfect. Now, onto The Bear and the Nightingale! I’m only 10 pages in, so I am hardly qualified to say this - but I love it so far! Atmospheric and magical...so great.

Leave it to the heroes to save the world--villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains' points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like "Medusa," Sherlock Holmes, and "Jack and the Beanstalk" provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains' acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage--and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Who was your favorite childhood author?
Dr. Seuss will always hold a special place in my heart, & my daughter shares the same opinion. We love reading his books, laughing until our sides hurt at all the funny words he used, cooing over his adorable creature creations, & marveling at the worlds he made up. Plus, how cute are all these Seuss plushes?? Perfect for snuggling with while you read!

I finished reading Uprooted yesterday and I really enjoyed it! I gave it 4🌟 although I feel like maybe it's a 4.5🌟 for me but I don't want to get too specific.
If you like (dark) fairytales and books with elements of magic and politics, strong female characters and a little romance sprinkled in, I would recommend this book to you!
Uprooted was not what I was expecting at all, it was so unpredictable and it had so many twists and turns that I could never guess what was going to happen next! The author does a wonderful job with the imagery and setting the scene so I was completely pulled into this magical and dark fairytale! I also really loved the romance, although it was only a small part of the story and, actually, I wish there was more of it 😅
I'm going to stop here before this becomes a rant but if you wanna know more I have a review for it on my Goodreads (link in bio) .

Do you love mermaids? I sure do😍😍
I am so so excited to take part in the cover reveal for this stunning mermaid book by @emmahammauthor 😍
.
The cover for Bride of the Sea is gorgeous and it’s up for preorder on Amazon! You can find the pre-order link in @asthebookends profile so make sure to check it out! Below is the synopsis - it sounds aaaamazing!!
🧡
The Little Mermaid meets Irish Mythology in this retelling of the beloved classic…
Once upon a time…

Saoirse dreams of land. Her father has other plans, and intends to marry her off as soon as possible. When a ship sinks near her home, she carries the only surviving sailor to a faerie blessed isle and plans her escape. Who better to help her than a man with few scruples and little cares in the world?
Manus dreams of the sea. He spent every coin in his pockets to get back on a ship but never expected the vessel to sink. When a merrow saves him, he realizes the chance meeting is an opportunity. She could make him rich and become his good luck charm, so the legends say. Now, he just needs to get off the isle she’s trapped him on.
They intend to use each other, but find their souls drawn together bit by bit. Can either leave the isle and the sea without losing their hearts in the bargain?
🧡
Does that sound amazing or what?! Ahhh can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!!

“The screw through Cinder’s ankle had rusted...” as far as opening lines go, that one caught my attention right away!
It’s a little hard for me to believe I haven’t read this one yet. Do you have any books you’ve been dancing around for a while but haven’t started yet?

What do you feel about fairytale retellings? I LOVE them, but have surprisingly not read any for Little Red Riding Hood - shocking! I need to read @marissameyerauthor Lunar Chronicles...

Q: What is your favorite fairy tale?
.
My is a tie between Rapunzel and The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I was obsessed with the latter as a child, there was this movie we'd borrow from the library ALL the time because I loved it. That said, Beauty and the Beast is also an enduring fave and Robin McKinley's Beauty is a forever fave. It's a little mysterious, a lot magical, and definitely worth reading...or rereading as the case may be.
