***~*~* Fairy Tales in Bruges schedule *~*~***


  1. I think The Wrong Bridegroom sounded the most interesting, a prince trying to win the fair maiden, I think I'd like this one the best.

  2. I'm actually most interested in reading the Shadow of Mist, I've had Yasmine Galenorn on my mental "authors to check out" list for awhile now.

  3. The Tangleroot Palace sounds divine. I LOVE trees in stories.

  4. im gonna have to say they all did but this one caught my eye the most

    The Shadow of Mist by Yasmine Galenorn

  5. I'm with Linda--"The Wrong Bridegroom" sounds the most interesting to me (and I swear its not because I love Sharon Shinn the most...)

    'Sides it pleases me that a parent is actually listening to their child's wants instead of running roughshod over them.

  6. You are featuring the most awesome books this week.

    I would have to say The Shadow of Mist, jsut because I love selkies, but haven't read many stories where there featured.

  7. That's a no brainer: the story by Sharon Shinn!
    I'm not too impressed sofar by what I've read of Laurell K. Hamilton and Yasmine Galenorn and as for Marjorie M. Liu: she's totally new to me, so I have no idea what to expect.

  8. The Wrong Bridegroom by Sharon Shinn

    Princess on road trip?
    That should be interesting and filled with dangers!

  9. I must admit, Marjorie Liu's story sounds most intriguing....

  10. I have been meaning to read more by Yasmine Galenorn and so I read your review of The Shadow of Mist.

    I have come across selkies in some romance novels but have not read a complete book about them so I might have a llok at this one.

  11. Signed the guestbook.
    I would have to go for the enchanted tree story; The Tangleroot Palace by Marjorie M. Liu.

  12. The Wrong Bridegroom sounds pretty intriguing. The title itself got me hooked. Wrong... BRIDEGROOM!?

    Can't wait to get my hands on The Wrong Bridegroom! :)

  13. The Shadow of Mist for I do not know the mithology of Selkies.

  14. I signed the guestbook. I want that book so bad! I adore anthologies and it was a similar one that Hamilton had published in that I found several of my favorite authors. I most want to read the LKH story but the Marjorie M. Liu sounds neat too.


  15. "The Tangleroot Palace" seems very curious.
    I would like to read this one.

  16. I'm very intrigued by The Shadow of Mist. I've never read a book about selkies before.
    I am familiar with Yasmine Galenorn's books and I love them so that makes me want to read this even more

  17. Can He Bake A Cherry Pie?
    I have heard such good things about Laurell K. Hamilton but never read anything of hers!

  18. Can He Bake A Cherry Pie - I love the hero is a heroine!

  19. I'm interested to read Can He Bake A Cherry Pie? AND The Wrong Bridegroom

  20. I think The Wrong Bridegroom by Sharon Shinn sounds very interesting :)

  22. The wrong bridgeroom!
    Middle-age road trips rule!

  23. The Shadow of Mist
    Best and most intriguing title!

  24. Can He Bake A Cherry Pie?
    I like the femininist way it turns fairy tales around!

  25. 1. Signed the guestbook.
    2. The Wrong Bridegroom by Sharon Shinn

  26. The Wrong Bridegroom sounds fascinating, but I also love Marjorie M. Liu, so I'd love to read her story too.
