I Actually NEED It 6: Fairy Tale Style

It's been a while since I've done one of my NEED it lists.  And, since I'm celebrating fairy tales this week, I thought I'd share a few upcoming fairy tale(ish) books I'm interested in.

Cloaked in Red
Cloaked in Red by Vivian Vande Velde
This one looks so delightful!  It's a collection of retellings of Little Red Riding Hood and I'm super thrilled just thinking of all that fairy tale delights I will experience in October 2010.

Entwined by Heather Dixon
Hello, retellings of Twelve Dancing Princesses?  Yes, I love them.  And the cover for this is absolutely fabulous.  Too bad I have to wait until April 2011 before I can get my hands on this one! 

Just as a side note, I thought I'd send you for a little blast to the past with my Why We Love Fairy Tales post from last year's Once Upon a Week celebration.

What fairy tales are you waiting on?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Ooooh, I hadn't heard of Entwined. Cool.

    I need to have a Jessica Day George marathon and a Mette Ivie Harrison marathon... :)

    I'm also waiting on the last chapter of the Sisters Grimm books!!

  2. Britt, I got very excited when I saw the lovely cover and heard it was a fairy tale! You should definitely catch up on both George and Harrison (ha - I love using those last names). Ive been meaning to pick up Sisters Grimm books, but just haven't gotten to them yet.


Love it when you comment!
