Shareing Monday

Hi! Happy Monday.

So for today's sharing I am going to tell you about a few of my favorite books =)

1. Devoured by Amanda Marrone = Ever since I was a little girl I have loved fairy tales. I loved them all Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Alice in Wonderland etc. but my favorite was always Snow White. I don't know what it was about that particular story that made me love it so much but I always have. So when I was browsing Thur the bookstore one day and I came across this book Devoured it instantly caught my attention because of the cover. On the front it had a picture of a pale girl with black hair and red lips holding an apple, sound familiar? I ended up buying it and I loved it. Its about this girl named Megan who has just started working at The Land of Enchantment theme park. She finds the job stupid especially since she has to dress up like Snow White but she took the job to keep an eye on her boyfriend Ryan who also works there, along with a girl named Samantha who he says is just his "friend". So not only does Megan have to worry about her boyfriend being all over Samantha and her job which she hates but she is also being haunted by her dead twin sister. Its a great book with a mystery and a bit of creepy edge what with people ending up dead with their hearts cut out and her seeing the ghost of her sister.

2. Fairest of All: A Tale Of The Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino = I figured I might as well stick with the Snow White theme. This one is basically the original story of Snow White but instead of seeing the story from Snow White's point of view you see it from The Wicked Queen's point of view. Honestly if you read this you will find yourself actually feeling pity for The Wicked Queen.

Okay I think have blabbed on enough I will continue talking about more books I love next Monday! Happy Reading ~ Andrea~

Sharing Monday

Hi! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great New Years :)

So here we go with this weeks sharing Monday. I have decided to share one of my first memories of when I realized my love for books. I was 5 years old and it was Christmas. As embarrassing as it is to admit this I also had a great love for Winne-The-Pooh back then. So that Christmas my mom had really went all out on the pooh bear stuff. She got me a pooh bear bed set a pooh bear activity book etc. Well my favorite present out of all the stuff she got me was, this big pooh bear storybook. It was a hardback and was at least 450 pages maybe more. Oh how loved that book, from Christmas night on I made my mom read me at least one story out of that book every night. It was one of my most cherished possessions. And now 12 years later I still have that book! And its in great condition. I am saving it to give to my kids.

Well that's it for today! Happy Reading! - Andrea
