  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... fama.elizabeth@gmail.com

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

    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)

  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.

    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!

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…
