Welcome to Once Upon A Week, hosted by Vanessa @ Today’s Adventure. Once Upon A Week is a week long event in which bloggers review fairy tales and fairy tale retellings, and discuss just why we love them so much.
This year we’re having a group read of Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce and a discussion, so stay tuned for that coming up on August 5 (Thursday).

thank you 😀
My fave fairytale is Sleeping Beauty. Very sweet.
I can’t decide! Seriously… I think my favorite fairy tale right now would be The Little Mermaid, but that’s only because I’m writing a story about it. But fairy tales are all pretty awesome. Maybe East of the Sun, West of the Moon? (Of the non-writer-associated tales.)
My favourite fairy tale is probably Beauty and the Beast.
Call me cryptic but my favorite fairy tale is that of Bluebeard. I know.. I am a strange cookie.
Fun, I love fairy tales!
My favorite would be Beauty and the Beast.
Awesome giveaway! I just fairy tale-esque books.
My favorite fairy tale has always been Sleeping Beauty. It is just such a love conquers all kind of a story. I also love the fact that the prince was willing to slay a dragon for his lady love.
Oooh great contest idea. My favourite traditional fairytale is Cinderella, but I love it when authors twist up tradition (eg Dianne Wynne-Jones’ HOWLS MOVING CASTLE) to create something unique.
My favorite tale has been redone in many forms…..the Seven Swans. It’s a great tale of love and perseverance.
A lot of my favorite fairy tales are the ones adapted by Disney, and my all-time favorite is probably The Little Mermaid. Just not the tragic version, haha.
I liiike too many of them, but the first one that comes to mind is Little Red Riding Hood!
I love most all fairy tales. I think my favorite would be Cinderella. I just read a re-telling and it made me like it more.
Thanks for this giveaway! My favourite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast! !!
Wow… just one?
Man that’s rough. I love so many despite a lack of really strong female characters. (I wish there was at least one story that had a female making choices and moving the story with those choices (probably a sign of the times) instead of being cursed or almost molested or something else completely out of her hands.
Current favorite is “The White Deer”.
My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella.
I love fairy tales and my favorite one always seems to be changing. Lately I’ve been watching and reading all sorts of Cinderella type tales. 🙂
My fav. fairy tale is Cinderella. Although, B&theB is a close second.
My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast
My favorite Fairy Tale is: Aladin…
Who doesn’t like Gynies with 3 magic wishes, a princess with a pet Tiger, and a poor boy falls in love with a rich princess.
Ooo.. fun giveaway! Two totally fantastic books! I’ve read them both, though, so I won’t enter.
My favorite fairy tale is certainly Beauty and the Beast.
Great giveaway thank you very much for the chance!
I guess my favorite is Beauty and the Beast, but I have a hard time picking one!
My favorite fairy tale is Sleeping Beauty.
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite.
I have a lovely book called Old Swedish Fairy Tales, and the story of the Glassblower is my favorite of them! I re-read it more than any other fairy tale.
I’m a big fan of Beauty and the Beast.
This is a great contest. New to this blogging thing with the links. Hope I do it right.
Oooh, thank you for this giveaway 😀
My favorite fairy tale is Aladdin. I like it because it’s different from the others. The guy isn’t a prince and the girl wants to see the world, not be swept off her feet.
Favorite fairy tale: Rapunzel
😀 Thanks for doing this giveaway
Does Disney count? If so, I’m going with Shrek.
