Welcome to my stop on the Happily Ever After Giveaway Hop hosted by the wonderful blogs, I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Murphy's Library! I adore fairy tales, or any story with a Happily Ever After, so I am extremely excited about this hop!
What You Can Win
One of the best things about books with a Happily Ever After in it is the main character thinks they know what they want, but their ending is sometimes very different and preferable. I think I'm going to take a page from that book (okay, I won't start with puns) and spin it to meet my own ends.
Based on the winner's answer in the Rafflecopter, I will send them a surprise book. (It'll be fine, I promise. I'm not at all saying you don't know what you really) We all love surprises at some level, and hopefully the winner will get a Happily Ever After with the book of their dreams!
- Be thirteen (13) years old, have parental consent, or lie about it. (Please don't do that.)
- Live somewhere that can get shipments from Amazon, Fishpond, or the Book Depository for free.
- Be Awesome (and fill out the Rafflecopter).
- Following is NOT required, but it is always appreciated. Your options are on my sidebar, but I will tell you that I am yet to figure out Linky.
- You can help me spread the word, but it isn't required either.
You're also welcome to enter my OTHER GIVEAWAYS while you're here. Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
I love your idea of happily ever after, and also surprising us with the book! My idea of happily ever after is probably something like Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross. (I know, the title doesn't sound pretty.) Probably because of the entire modern fairytale concept, because that's just really cool how practically all the characters are going through something terrible, and not all of them gets it resolved in the end. Plus Sisters Red, because it has this very ordinary and quiet, yet wonderfully beautiful ending. Or something like Entwined by Heather Dixon, because classic fairytales are also really sweet. Oh, oh and The Space Between, because Daphne's supposed to be evil by nature, yet she's so awfully sweet.ReplyDelete
And I shall stop right here, or I'll continue rambling on for hours about my favourite Ever Afters.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins:)ReplyDelete
I love this idea :) My favorite fairy tale is probably Beauty and the Beast but I loved Cinder as a retelling.Thanks for the chance to win!ReplyDelete
LOVE Sleeping Beauty!ReplyDelete
I guess Princess and the Frog. :)ReplyDelete
Thumbelina was my favorite fairytale when I was little. ^_^ReplyDelete
Great idea for a giveaway! Um... one of my favorite fairytales is a less well-known Brothers Grimm one that translated directly from German would be called something like 'The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs'. The guy has to bring the king the devils three golden hairs to gain his consent to marry the princess, and he has to fulfill three quests by the devil to get them. The devil's grandma gives him hints and stuff. It's awesome!ReplyDelete
I don't know. Maybe Auracle, by Gina Rosati.:-?ReplyDelete
My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella and my favorite retelling is Beastly. Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
Cinderella, because I am a sucker for angsty heroines and happy endings! :)ReplyDelete

My favorite fairy tale is Rumpelstiltskin (it's so... odd. I mean he is the only one who does something, and it's still the one who takes the short end...) and I also like the wizard of OZ (How Dorothy is the hero and not the vilain it's over me...).ReplyDelete
Tangled or Beauty and the Beast.ReplyDelete
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairytale. Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins! Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway! :DReplyDelete
I always have a hard time picking a favorite because I have always loved Disney movies so much. Some of my faves include Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty Beast. Beastly was cute, but my absolute favorite fairy tale retelling I've read so far has been Ella Enchanted. It's actually one of my favorite all time books! I've read it multiple times!ReplyDelete
Robin McKinley's Beauty is my favorite fairy tale book. My fave Disney fairy tale is either Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, or Tangled :)ReplyDelete
Rapunzel is my favorite!! :)ReplyDelete
I love Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast the best! Thanks for the fun surprise giveaway!ReplyDelete
My favourite fairy tale is Sleeping Beauty!ReplyDelete
Cinderalla when I was a "little" girl but now that I'm "old" I love Beauty and the Beast. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for your giveaway....fun idea.
I loved Beauty by Robin McKinley. Another really great book with a happy ending was Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. Not a fairy tale, per se, but it fits your criteria. :)ReplyDelete
I have always loved The Princess Diaries and Beauty and the Beast.ReplyDelete
I love The Little Mermaid.ReplyDelete
I love Beauty and the Beast!ReplyDelete
Beauty and the Beast!ReplyDelete
My favourite is Beauty and the Beast although I absolutely love all fairy tales! I have read Beastly and Alex Flinn's other retellings and am looking for others to devour!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the giveaway! x
my favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast!ReplyDelete
My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella.ReplyDelete
My favorite happily ever after books this year are Easy by Tammara Webber and Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for the giveaway! :)
There is no way I could name my favorite book with a HEA ending there are just way to many. As far as animated fairy tales I will stray from the normal Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast (which I really did love them both) and go with Tangled. It had romance, humor and adventure!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!
My favourite book with a HEA ending is Wanderlove. There were so many things I found relatable to the main character especially with her struggle with drawing and art. I was going through a slump myself at the time I was reading that book and seeing her get the HEA motivated me to draw again. Her story gave me hope. Thank you. :)ReplyDelete
I like Alice in Wonderland.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway.
I always loved Cinderella, but there are so many fantastic ones! Rapunzel and Aladdin are other faves!ReplyDelete
Cinderella, it has always been my favorite!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the fun giveaway :) It's so hard to decide but I guess Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.ReplyDelete
A wonderful giveaway, thank-you :)ReplyDelete
It would be Tangled or Beauty and the Beast for me or from a book I have read more recently - Pushing the Limits.
I LOVE happay surprises! I love the Little Mermaid! :DReplyDelete
My favorite fairy tale is Little Red Riding Hood.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway! :)
The Princess Bride by William Goldman. I like the way it ends - with the couple together but things are still a bit of a mess... I like that. I think it's fantastic that happily ever after doesn't mean that everything's easy and there's still drama in all relationships.ReplyDelete
Either that or Beauty and the Beast. :)
Thanks for the giveaway :)
My favorite is Beauty and the Beast!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway!
I love Beauty and the Beast ^^ReplyDelete
I love Beauty and the Beast, and the Little Mermaid!ReplyDelete
I also love Le Maudit by Myrielle Marc(it is kind of a fairytale, but not really, but it does have a happy ending!). It's a french book, and it has never been translated, so you probably don't know it...
My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella.ReplyDelete
I love Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and The Beast!!ReplyDelete
