Happy World Book Night 2014!
One of my favorite fairy tales,
ENCHANTED by Alethea Kontis,
was chosen as a 2014 title!!!
Don't know what World Book Night is?
Check out the website!
But in brief (Directly from their website):
World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23 –Shakespeare’s birthday– tens of thousands of people in the U.S. go out into their communities and give a total of half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.
To celebrate the honor, Alethea Kontis has a very special fairy tale rant to share today in honor of this special occasion!
In Which Princess Alethea gives the low-down on fairy tales as originally told by the Grimms, Andrew Lang, Hans Christian Andersen, and others.
Today, Alethea is ranting about Cinderella and how it inspired ENCHANTED!
Check it out now:
I've previously reviewed Alethea Kontis' novella BLOOD AND WATER, her debut novel ENCHANTED, and her newest novel, HERO.
I've also interviewed author Alethea Kontis, and interviewed ENCHANTED cover designer Christine Kettner! Alethea has also written a guest post on "Families in Fiction" for the HERO Blog Tour and written a short story for last year's Splash into Summer event entitled "Well Behaved Mermaids Rarely Make Fairy Tales!"
Alethea has also filmed a fairy tale rant on Rapunzel for this year's A Week of Rapunzel event!
