Hmm.. I'm gonna go with Peter Pan. I love almost any version of it! :)

Blissfulrains said...

I adore Ella Enchanted, probably the best retelling of Cinderella out there! It just has everything to make a fairytale work - a cool rebellious heroine, a whole slew of fantasy creatures, and a happily-ever-after~


Stephanie said...

I love any type of Cinderella type story. I enjoy Lila DiPasqua's fairy tale books.

I'm a big fan of Cinderella stories, but my favorite is Ella Enchanted as well. I loved it so much when I was younger that it fell apart and I had to buy a new copy.

Devan @ Book Strings said...

Lieder Madchen said...

I love the Wild Swans, particularly Juliet Marillier's version, Daughter of the Forest. It is such a beautiful, romantic story. :)

Thank you for the giveaway! The Near Witch looks wonderful. :)



Lisa said...

I recently read a book called Troy High! I really enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it(:

Meredith said...

Addictedtolife said...

My favorite tale is probably The Swan Kingdom. I love this retelling of The wild Swans.

Nicole said...

I really loved Ella Enchanted when I was younger and still enjoy reading it. So thats my favorite!


Melissa said...

I would have to go with the classic Cinderella, and honestly I can't think of a remake, but I see there is a lot Ella Enchanted's. I'm going to have to get that.


latishajean said...

I always loved Cinderella my favorite! I also love Lila DiPasqua's fairy tale books won them on her blog tour last year very good! Great giveaway thank you so much!

Maureen said...

I would pick Beauty and the Beast since it makes the point that beauty is only skin deep.

I love The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. Such a gorgeous retelling with a strong heroine and beatiful writing! Awesome giveaway:)

Asenath said...

My favorite fairy tale is hands down Beauty and the Beast. Sadly, I've never read a book that's lived up to my love of the story...guess I'll have to write my own! Beastly was an entertaining read.

shorevalerie said...

sweet giveaway :) Beauty and the Beast is my fav! The timeless tale of finding true beauty within

Tore said...

I love Beauty and the Beast because it shows that you can love someone for what's inside of them not whats on the outside. Please enter me in contest. I would love to read the book.

Teril said...

Mm I love Tam Lin, that would have to be my fav. There have been many great modern adaptations.

Manda said...

The Little Mermaid's my favorite, not the Disney-fied version where everything ends perfectly, but the original where everything kind of ends terribly but it's sort of beautiful anyway. :) Plus I love how Hans Christian Anderson throws in a little guilt trip for the kids at the end hahah.



The Little Mermaid because I am fascinated with red hair lol
No I love the whole story of mermaids and I just loved her voice!!!

Kaitlyn (Kaitlyn in Bookland) said...

Can I pick The Little Mermaid? I always loved it because I have red hair and you NEVER used to be able to see red heads as a beautiful, lead role. I loved it growing up.

Thanks for the giveaway!

pandasrule said...

My fave fairy tale is East of the Sun and West of the Moon. I love the girl's determination to rescue her polar bear.

I love fairy tales! Original, retellings, movies, themed tv episodes, whatever!

My favorite is The Little Mermaid. It was in high school when I found out the real, original story ending. I was upset. Then I grew to love the original ending because not all fairy tales have happy endings. It's just an emotional piece. Maybe that's why I also love "The Little Match Girl." Sad story :(

Jill of The O.W.L. said...

I don't know if this counts, but growing up I loved Disnye's Robin Hood. It was sooooo my favarite. I loved the story and the characters :) Now I love Tanged because it's a great turn on a classic fairytale :)

I'd have to say Cinderella is my favorite fairy tale. I just love a story with a happy ending!

Bookish in a Box said...

My favorite fairytale is Sleeping Beauty. Aurora's misfortune isn't her fault, and her prince actually has to *do* something to save her...and in the Disney version, there's a great song.

Aydrea said...

I love Rapunzel, especially the Tangled version. I adore that movie!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Jenn of Frequent Reader, Infrequent Blogger said...

I have to say my favorite has always been Beauty and the Beast because she feel in love with him for the person that he was inside and ended up rewarded with an attractive guy outside too.

My favorite is the newest book adaptation of Red Riding Hood. It still has elements of the original, but also adds hot guys and suspense!

Kandee Kane said...

I love Ella Enchanted, It was the best. I loved the book with all my heart, but I also loved the newer retelling of Red Riding Hood. It was awesome.


Bere said...

Ahhhh! Amazing contest, Nikki! Well I have to say that my favorite farytale's have to be The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. I grew up watching these movies so they just stuck with me. And I still have the movies too, hehe. Like the old VHS tapes (!). And a few little mermaid and belle dollies. Is this weird? Anyways, thanks a bunch for the contest, Nikki! :]


Hoot said...

I have always enjoyed the Brothers Grimm. So many good lessons an excitement.

If you like mythology you will enjoy Solstice by P.J. Hoover (it's only in eBook form).

I also enjoyed Sweetly by Jackson Pearce which is a retelling of Hansel and Gretel.
