Fairy Tale Giveaway Hop ~ Ends 4/2


This blog hop is hosted by

Fairy Tales are for young and old.  I don't think we ever outgrow the fantasy and magic that surrounds a good fairy tale.  I remember imagining that I was a character in a fairy tale.  Maybe Snow White or Repunzel.

This book sounds a bit like a Cinderella or Anastasia story to me:

A Countess Below Stairs

  1. Belle from Beauty and the Beast because family is the most important thing to both of us and we both love to read! Oh, and we both look good in yellow. ;) Belle has always struck me as being a bit more soft-spoken but also willing to stand up for what she thinks is right, just like me. :) Thank you for the giveaway!

  3. I identify most with Belle -- she's a bookworm, she loves horses, she's a brunette, and she wants adventure! I think she's kind and can see past appearances and I hope to be that too.

    Thanks!

  5. I think that would have to be beauty and the beast. I love my husband, but on the outside he is a beast to others and some wonder what I was thinking. Well I could see more inside then he allowed others to see. He has changed for the nicer to others as he has always been to me. I now see him making and keeping friends. I think a little love goes a long way. lisapeters at yahoo dot com

  18. I love fairy tales. I actually wrote a paper for my Literary Non-Fiction class about the resurgence of fairy tales in popular culture. This was last year when the two movies based on "Snow White" came out along with the tv show "Once Upon a Time…" and then "Cinder" came out. It was quite an explosion of fairy tales in mediums. I concluded that because of the rough economic times, people were grasping for something to escape to. In fairy tales, the impossible happens. The disenfranchised become the heroes and heroines. They rise to power and usually become a King or Queen. We are still clinging to the American dream and through the use of fairy tales we get to live that dream. As far as my favorite fairy tale goes, I love "Beauty and the Beast." I love it so much that I have thought seriously about naming my first daughter Belle. In books, I love retellings of fairy tales like "Cinder" and "Ella Enchanted." In TV, the show "Beauty and the Beast" on the CW is one of my favorites and in movies, I loved "Mirror, Mirror," "Beastly" and "The Wizard of Oz." Also, a big fan of the musical "Wicked."
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Cinderella... before she does daring things involving fairy godmothers and princes. I'm shy with a naturally quiet personality, and I enjoy working in the kitchen!

  26. Belle, in Beauty and the Beast because I absolutely loved reading, books and literature. However, I think I most resemble Mulan, because of her free spirit and her fierce loyalty, and her love of family! :)

  32. Belle was always my favorite; as a child I identified with her love of reading and her big dreams. I also like to think I've tried to keep in mind her ability to see beyond the exterior and appreciate a person for who s/he really is.

  37. My favorite Fairy Tale character is The Beast. He was in hiding because he thought he was ugly and didn’t think anyone could love him for who he is. He didn’t love himself. Until Bella came along. And she taught him to be comfortable with who he is and love himself. Thank you so much for a chance to win and for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!

  38. I would say Sleeping Beauty, because I like sleeping, and I am always willing to be woken up by a kiss from my prince charming (my husband)!

  39. I think I'm like Beauty--I tend to look for beauty within rather than without.
