Fairy Tale Read-a-thon, Day 3


Welcome to the Fairy Tale Read-a-thon Day 3!

While I haven't done as much reading as I had hoped, I have enjoyed the reading I've done. Be sure to check out today's Mini-Challenge being hosted by Wonderland's Reader and Giveaway hosted by A Book Lover's Ramblings.  Also be sure to check out my mini-challenge and giveaway. Hope you are all having a good time!  Be sure to check Debz Bookshelf as she is our hostess and has done a lot of work getting this together.

DAY THREE
  • Total Books Read: 1
  • Total Pages Read:424
  • Books Read Since Last Update: 1
  • Pages Read since last update: 220
  • Total time read: 4 and a half hours
  • How I'm currently feeling: I finished Storybound, which I loved. Check back next week for a review. I've started reading The Wide-Awake Princess by E.D. Baker, really liking it so far. 
 In this new fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie—blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic—can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.
 

But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own.

  2. I read this for the read-a-thon, too! And I was highly amused that they had no idea who her true love might be!

  3. HI, I am here by way of the Kid Lit Hop. I am sorry, I have no idea what your read-athon is all about. It does look interesting. Something I would find fun I am sure.
