Cinder Audiobook Giveaway!

I'm pleased to host a giveaway today of the audiobook of Cinder by Marissa Meyer. This cyberpunk/scifi retelling of Cinderella has a lot going for it (you can read my review here). The book and audiobook are due out January 1st. But Macmillan Audio is letting us in on a sneak peek of the audio version below. If you like what you hear, please leave a comment with your favorite fairy tale and your contact information, and you'll be entered to win the audiobook! This giveaway is open to U.S. addresses only and will end at midnight on December 9th. 


  1. Oh, me, me! An audio version of CINDER would be so awesome. Can I count Mike Mignola's "The Corpse" from THE CHAINED COFFIN AND OTHER STORIES as my favorite fairy tale? After all, it has an evil fairy, and Jenny Greenteeth, and a changeling baby in it...

  2. My favorite fairy tale is probably The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Not sure if that's an official fairy tale, actually!

  4. I love the story of Tam Lin, and who no matter what love can hold on.
    I am so totally excited for Cinder. This looks like a freaking awesome adaptation of a classic.

    I can never pass up a Cinderella re-telling and my favorite thus far is Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine (the novel, not the movie adaptation). I'd never given much thought to Sleeping Beauty but I was very impressed by A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan. (extemter at hotmail dot com)

  11. My favorite fairy tale is the Twelve Dancing Princesses!

  12. My favorite fairy tale is puss in boots.

  13. This comment has been removed by the author.

  14. I'm partial to "Molly Whuppie." It's a Jack-the-Giant-Killer story with a girl as the protagonist. I've always liked trickster stories, and since this one has a girl outsmarting the giant, I'm just happy.

  16. I love fairy tale retellings -- tt's so hard to pick one favorite! I'd have to go with Cinderella, however, it's a classic!

    I teach kindergarten and we read the original Grimms ~ I'd have to say I like Snow White the best!

  18. Ooh I would love to win! my favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast.

    My favorite fairytale growing up was Beauty and the Beast because of a retelling I read that I fell in love with. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it and I can't remember the title. Now, ever since I heard it read by David Tennant The Steadfast Tin Soldier has been my favorite. His accent makes ALL the difference!

  20. What a great giveaway. The Musicians of Bremen Town has always been my favorite fairy tale. molliereadsya at gmail dot com

    Spindle's End by Robin McKinley. Its an amazing book.

  22. I am a huge fairytale fan, but my favorite has to be Snow White.

  23. I was excited about the giveaway and now that I see it is on audio... even more excited!!!

    Favorite huh? I do like Cinderella.... and Beauty and The Beast.

  24. Team Belle! I loved Beauty and the Beast ever since I was a kid.

  25. I just love fairy tales. I loved reading Hans Christian Anderson and the Grimm brothers' stories. One that I always loved reading was that of Snow-White and Rose Red.

  26. This would be so awesome! I loved fairy tales as a child and still read many grown up retellings - my favorite is probably Beauty and the Beast, in all of its variations. Thanks for the chance to win!

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Angie's Best Books of 2017

Somehow it's New Year's Eve again, and here we are. I don't especially feel like getting into what this bloody year was like and how I thought it couldn't get worse than last year, but then 2017 came and was all . . . ahem. Well, you know the rest. 
Suffice it to say, I feel like my favorite reads of the year reflect what I needed and what all you wonderful writers and readers had and needed to give. Just ten titles this year, you guys. A literal Top Ten, which I don't believe I've ever actually achieved. It is the last day of the year, and I present you with one highly distilled list of impeccable reads.
