Giveaway: The Amaranth Enchantment

The Amaranth Enchantment
by Julie Berry

Retelling: Cinderella

This is the book Princess Lilith retrieved in the Study.

Description from the amazon:
When Lucinda Chapdelaine was a small child, her parents left for the royal ball and never returned. Ever since, Lucinda has been stuck in perpetual servitude at her evil aunt’s jewelry store.

Then, on the very same day, a mysterious visitor and an even more bizarre piece of jewelry both enter the shop, setting in motion a string of twists and turns that will forever alter Lucinda’s path.

In this magical story filled with delightful surprises, Lucinda will dance at the royal ball, fall under the Amaranth Witch’s spell, avenge her parents’ death, and maybe—just maybe—capture the heart of a prince.

  1. She has a great list of favorite books. I love The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis and The Pippi Longstocking Series by Astrid Lindgren.

    Thank you for another awesome giveaway! :D

  2. Signed the guestbook.
    I love all of her favorite books, especially the Roald Dahl books, like James and the Giant Peach. It was one of my faves as a child too!

  3. She has the Pippi Longstocking books--which I have to admit makes me giggle. I don't know very many people who have read the actual BOOKS and not just seen the movie (or Live Action Nordic TV show or the cartoon).

  4. I'd love to be entered in this giveaway -- the book sounds fabulous! I've signed the guest book and I'm over-the-moon that Ms Berry likes The Witch of Blackbird Pond -- it's one of my all-time favorites!

    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity and sharing a great author!

  5. The Chronicles of Narnia(:

  6. I signed the guestbook. <3

    And yay she has an awesome favorite book list. Ms. Berry has pretty awesome taste. The Prydian Chronicles, the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card... -I'm- finding it hard to pick one, haha!

    [not sure if you want our emails, but I'll leave it here anyway!]

  18. The Pippi Longstocking!
    Loved it as a kid!

  19. One of her favourite books is Charlotte's Web, which I don't really like much since Charlotte fell down dead at the very end, which is really not my kind of ending.

  20. The Chronicles of Narnia.
    I do like C. S. Lewis, even though he is not as important here as he is there.

  21. I signed the guestbook. She likes the Narnia books and Roald Dahl too. I've been thinking of re-reading both of those lately.

    One of her favorite books is Jane Eyre which I'm currently reading. I agree with her, it's an amazing book!

  23. Mary Poppins!!!!!!
    I only know the movie, not the book.
