Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger.

The one thing that would make this better is pictures. I really think this would make a great coffee table book. These stories were fantastic and they opened with one of their best Sealed by Laila Blake made be cry (but if you ever see me in public I will deny it, promise you that). I couldn’t figure out which fairytale it was based off of. I am leaning toward Little Mermaid but some of the stories were like that which made it fun for me, not sure about you (hence the four crowns). Another one of my favorites was Locks by Tahira Iqbal.

A Princess BoundStraight to the Swagger: Some of the fairy tales picked up after the HEA, so if you don’t know that the princess married the soldier and that kind of thing would bother you then your out of luck but if you like a good short story with a variety of couples in different stages of life. Then dive right in A Princess Bound has you covered.

  1. I loved hearing about Beauty and the Beast. I liked how everyone deserves love no matter who they are. I liked how she defended him to family and friends. She wanted to be with him despite all of his efforts to push her away. It was a great story then and no matter how many times it’s re-told it’s still a great story.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Yes I do to. There is a story I read in middle school that I used to reread over and over which was basically Beauty and the Beast retold where Belle was basically given to the Beast by her father a college professor to assist him out of his debt by helping the Beast. Oh I loved it. I couldn’t afford to buy it but I checked that book out so many times.

      I think I am going to have to track it down Belinda. I forgot about it until I started typing this response to you. I love chatting with you I tell you.

  4. My favorite tale has always been Peter Pan. For some reason, I never got into the princess thing. Pan was it! I still have my original book from over 40 yrs ago. It isn’t in the best of shape, but I still love it.

  15. The first fairytale I remember reading is Cinderella – I think I was about 4 when I read it. (I was a little advanced for my age and started reading at 3.) So really, my ideas about an alpha male started forming at a very young age. LOL!
