Fairytale read-a-thon.

I’m planning to read at least 3 books. Here are some books that I might pick:

Tiger Lily is a re-read, but I just love the story so much I might want to read it again.

  2. Of Beast and Beauty and Tiger Lily are on my TBR list! I'm planning to order Tiger Lily :3 Fathomless was pretty good in my opinion! I like retellings but I haven't read much... :( Good luck and I hope you'll meet your goal!

    1. Tiger Lily is one of my favorite retellings <3 so order it, yeah!

  3. Tiger Lily & Of Beauty and Beast both sound amazing! I've had them on my TBR for ages. I love the sound of Rump too! That's the first time I've ever seen a fairy tale re-telling about Rumpelstiltskin! I think I'll definitely have to check it out!
    Good luck Mel! :)

  4. Great picks, I hope you'll enjoy them all :) I loved Rump & Alice in Zombieland (although this one isn't really a fairy tale retelling, just inspired by it, but a great read, can't wait for the 2nd book), anyway, good luck & happy reading!

  7. Ohh a fairy tale read-a-thon! Why am I not participating?! I looove them. Haven't read any of the books you listed above but so many people seemed to love Tiger Lily. It's not too late to join in the fun, right? Could load up the Kindle with some sweet fairy tales..

  15. Excellent read-a-thon! Wish I had the time to join in. I've read The Diamond Secret, Alice in Zombieland and Between the Lines :) LOVE Gena Showalter, so anything by her rocks my socks but Between the Lines was really cute too. Hope you enjoy!

    1. What a shame that you can't join. You MUST read Tiger Lily, perhaps I need to do some book forcing on twitter now? :p

  17. This sounds excellent! If I was doing it, I'd definitely pick Tiger Lily for a re-read, Of Beast and Beauty because it looks and sounds really interesting, and... Rump, I think.
    I read Between the Lines a while back and was really disappointed personally, but would be very interested to read what you think about it, if you do read it.

    1. Yes, although you don't need an excuse to read that book right <3

  19. How's the read-a-thon going? Two more days left! I'd love to see your opinion on Of Beast and Beauty. So many bloggers seem to be praising that one! I personally wasn't a huge fan of Tiger Lily *hides in a corner* but but but WOW. I didn't even realize there were so many books retelling fairy tales. Literally TL and the Lunar Chronicles are the only ones that I would've been able to think of had you asked me about them o.O.

  20. Ooooh there are some lovely covers in there *swoon* I'm late here, so you might be done already o.O BUT I hope the read-a-thon was a success :D I've heard GREAT things about Tiger Lily, Of Beast and Beauty and Rump! Very curious about Ash though ;D
