Hosted by Natalie- Nicole and Full Moon Bites
This blog hop is all about the fairy tales! They are usually the first books one start out reading when younger (Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Snow White, etc.) and even when we grow older they are still a huge part of our reading life.
Fairy tale re-telling's are in most all genres and they are especially big right now (Anyone watched that Snow White and the Huntsmen movie? Or Beauty and the Beast TV show?). You can find YA, Historical, Paranormal Romance, even Erotica, all of their sub-genres and more that are a version of a past fairy tale. This hop is in honor of them—because we all love a good fairly tale every once and a while!
Thanks to Natalie-Nicole there is a grand prize giveaway of a $100 Amazon Gift-Card!

The Princess Bride by William Goldman
Age Group: Young Adult
Genre: Fairy Tale, Fantasy
Release Date: July 15th 2003 (30th Anniversary Edition)
Amazon ♥ Book Depository
What happens when the most beautiful girl in the world marries the handsomest prince of all time and he turns out to be...well...a lot less than the man of her dreams?
As a boy, William Goldman claims, he loved to hear his father read the S. Morgenstern classic, The Princess Bride. But as a grown-up he discovered that the boring parts were left out of good old Dad's recitation, and only the "good parts" reached his ears.
Now Goldman does Dad one better. He's reconstructed the "Good Parts Version" to delight wise kids and wide-eyed grownups everywhere.
What's it about? Fencing. Fighting. True Love. Strong Hate. Harsh Revenge. A Few Giants. Lots of Bad Men. Lots of Good Men. Five or Six Beautiful Women. Beasties Monstrous and Gentle. Some Swell Escapes and Captures. Death, Lies, Truth, Miracles, and a Little Sex.
In short, it's about everything.
The Princess Bride is one of my all time favorite books and movies. I love the humor, the snark, the romance and the sheer uniqueness of the actual story told. Wesely and Buttercup are my original favorites!
Giveaway: 1 paperback copy of The Princess Bride
