Contest - Win Ash by Malinda Lo

Alright guys. I’ve reached over 75 followers and decided to hold another contest! Woot, right?

This time the contest is going to be to win Ash by Malinda Lo

In the wake of her father’s death, Ash is left at the mercy of her cruel stepmother. Consumed with grief, her only joy comes by the light of the dying hearth fire, re-reading the fairy tales her mother once told her. In her dreams, someday the fairies will steal her away, as they are said to do. When she meets the dark and dangerous fairy Sidhean, she believes that her wish may be granted.

The day that Ash meets Kaisa, the King’s Huntress, her heart begins to change. Instead of chasing fairies, Ash learns to hunt with Kaisa. Though their friendship is as delicate as a new bloom, it reawakens Ash’s capacity for love—and her desire to live. But Sidhean has already claimed Ash for his own, and she must make a choice between fairy tale dreams and true love.

Entrancing and romantic, Ash is an empowering retelling of Cinderella about choosing life and love over solitude and death, where transformation can come from even the deepest grief.

Great givaway!

My favorite fairy tale would have to be Beauty and the Beast. It's always been my fav. because Belle loves to read like I do and she would do anything to protect her family (like be a prisoner to save her father). Also it shows that there are people out there who don't judge others by the way they look, act, talk, etc.

I love all the Brother's Grimm fairy tales but I like Hansel and Gretel the best. Who doesn't love a story where a witch lures kids in her house to eat them.

Yey! Another contest. You know how to keep your followers content!

I would like to see The Nightingale revamped. The story has great potential with both selfish and selfless characters. It would be great to see the story with a wicked twist.. what if the nightingale was a raven or something?! idk, just a thought.

Oh, right, the fairy tale! I guess I'd say...Sleeping Beauty. I can see it being all gothicy and Tim Burton-y and I love that kind of stuff.

What is your favorite Fairy Tale?

I've always liked The Little Mermaid, if only because it's about a mermaid. I also love the Disney Beauty & the Beast.

My favorite is Beauty and the Best--such a perfect illustration of how it feels to get married and have to move in with a wild, smelly, loud man. Haha.
