The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry. I just went back and read this review. I love Cinderella, she has always been my favorite. I am still waiting on my Prince..LOL. I thought your reveiw was very good. I am going to be going back to read more. Just found you 2 mos ago so gotta catch up.. Thanks

misskallie2000 said...

I have not read any of these books you have up for giveaway. Would love to read any and all. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Great contest, though I'm confused. If you're going to add more to the list and yet one of the questions on the entry survey is what to do we want to be entered for...

Anyway, +2 for being an old follower and I think +4 for commenting on reviews (I've been worse about that than I'd thought, sorry!).
