Away to Whimsical FairyTale Land Wrap-Up & Giveaway! (INT)

Posted by Charlene // Tags: , ,

Away to Whimsical Fairy Tale Land has come to a close and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful bloggers who participated - Tory @ The Baozy, Angie @ Angela's Anxious Life and Lory at Emerald City Book Review.  Thank you guys so much for your time and your interesting posts!  With this event we covered the fairy tales "The Six Swans", "Twelve Dancing Princesses", "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Robin Hood"  (just noticed the popularity of 'hood' there! :D)  

And of course much thanks and appreciation goes to my lovely event co-host Ana @ Read Me Away who did so much of the planning for this event and whose google doc updates I always looked forward to reading! And our twitter shenanigans were the highlight! :)  (Check out her post for her recap of our chat!)  It was wonderful to co-host this with you m'dear! 

Now for the giveaway - Ana and I are each offering a giveaway to win one of three books with a fairy tale theme (we are each picking our own books to give away so check out Ana's post to win a choice of Shannon Hale books!)  This is an international giveaway, because I will be sending the winner the book through Amazon or The Book Depository (with Amazon I can send the book in the U.S. with my prime shipping so it will get there faster!)  

These are the books I've chosen to offer in my giveaway - 
"Daughter of the Forest" by Juliet Marillier (my thoughts on it here), a retelling of The Six Swans fairy tale.

"The Sleeper and the Spindle" by Neil Gaiman, an illustrated short story which retells Sleeping Beauty (such a gorgeous looking book!) 

"A Court of Thorns and Roses" by Sarah J. Maas. which is a Beauty and the Beast and Tam Lin retelling.  It's released in the U.S. on May 5th, 2015, so I will be sending the winner a notification that the book has been preordered for them.

The winner will be notified by email and must respond within 48 hours with their choice of ONE of these three books.  A new winner will be chosen if I do not hear back in time.  

THIS GIVEAWAY IS INTERNATIONAL and ends on March 15th.
