Mel at The Daily Prophecy came up with the Fairy Tale Survey, where you answer fairy tale-inspired questions about books. It looked like a lot of fun so I had to take part. Here are my answers for Part 1:
PART 1. CLASSIC PRINCESSES:
Pinocchio – The boy whose nose grows when he lies.
Is there are book you lie about, because you feel ashamed for liking it?
I don’t think I’ve ever been ashamed about liking a particular book. There have been a few I thought I wouldn’t like but ended up loving but I have never been ashamed about liking what I like.
Beauty and the Beast – The girl who fell in love with personality.
Which book do you love that has a hideous cover?
The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead. I have loved every Richelle Mead book I have read but some of the covers for her books are really quite hideous. In particular, The Fiery Heart gives me shudders (and not in a good way).
Snow White – Hunted down for her beauty.
Do you ever buy a book based on the cover alone and if so, what is the last one?
I actually do this quite a bit, afraid to say. The last one I bought solely on the cover was probably All the Colors of Love by Jessica Freely. It is just so pretty!! Not read it yet so I cannot say if it was a mistake or not.
Sleeping Beauty – Cursed to sleep, awakened by true loves kiss.
What is your favorite book couple?
That’ a tough one…probably Kaylee and Tod from Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series. I just love both of them together.
Little Mermaid – Gave up on her old life for love.
Do you ever branch out to new genres or do you like to stick with the ones you know and love? If you try new things out, what is the latest book?
I like to branch out (although I do tend to return to my favourite genres when I am in need of a bit of comfort). The last book that was a little out-with my usual comfort zone was Reclaiming the Sand by A. Meredith Walters. I do not read a lot of New Adult (they were really starting to get samey after a while) but this one looked so intriguing I just couldn’t resist reading it. I am very glad I did as it is a fantastic book.
Cinderella – Who lost her shoe after midnight.
What is the last book that made you stay up all night?
Fool’s Assassin by Robin Hobb. I was over the moon when I received an ARC for this book (it’s not out until August). I am a huge fan of the whole Realm of the Elderlings series, so you can bet I had difficulty putting this one down!
Rapunzel – locked up in a tower.
What is the worst books you’ve read last month?
I have actually been really lucky with the books I have read recently. The last one I didn’t enjoy as much was Sia by Josh Grayson. I did like it but it just didn’t wow me.
Watch out for Part 2 of the Fairy Tale Survey, coming next week!
