Read from September 28 to October 05, 2011

I am incredibly partial to "fairy tales" as (like many) I was raised reading them, watching them, and pretending to be in them. I found this book on the list "The Best Fairy Tales and Retellings" somewhere near the top and was surprised that I had never heard of it before. After reading it I was shocked that it took me this long to stumble across it. This book is MAGNIFICENT! =0) It is everything I love about a great fairy tale or a retelling. The heroines are strong girls with distinctive personalities, interests, and dreams. The villians can be found in the "real" world as well as the "fey" world which lends danger to any setting and excitement. The heroes are strong and sensitive (Yep would run away with either). It's everything a girl could dream of. This is a buyer for sure. An artful combination of the fables "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" and "The Princess and the Frog" with some vampire lore thrown in; this is surely a book that will impress female Harry Potter readers.
