Suggestions for Booklikes-opoly Ring Card
Lisey's Story - Stephen King
Prince Charming - Julie Garwood
The Heiress Effect - Courtney Milan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Realizing now that we didn't have any suggestions for this one when we were putting together lists. FYI, every time I Google looking for books that fit this card Fifty Shades of Grey pops up. Help a reader out guys. Let's post some good books for this one.

 

I was thinking that actually a good horror book that would count towards this is "Lisey's Story" by Stephen King. The main character gets married in that book during a flashback. 

 

A good romance that I enjoyed was "Prince Charming" by Julie Garwood where two characters get married and also "The Heiress Effect" by Courtney Milan.

 

Post any suggestions in the comment boxes below. I cannot do the second book in FSOG. I cannot. I got asked to, but I don't love you all enough to suffer through that right now. I may set something on fire.

Fans of Once Upon a Time show
Poisoned Apples: Poems for You, My Pretty - Christine Heppermann

Once upon a time....

Those four words have sustained little girls all their live into believing that all they have to do is sing in the woods, be beautiful, courageous, have patience and be kind to others, you will have a wonderful happy ending and a most wonderful man in your life.

Then the little girls grow up to be hard working women in the hard world and found out that all those fairy tale stories were.....

WRONG!!!!!!!!!

You don't always get Prince Charming. You sometimes get his evil twin; his delusional cousin, and lazy nephew but some hardly ever see Prince Charming. Also it's kind of hard to be kind to others when they are not kind to you...patience have left the building and will never return....some don't live in the woods and you really don't want that woman to sing....courageous is frowned upon in this world and what really is beautiful anymore?

Christine Heppermann sees what real young girls have to go through everyday and it's not all fairy-lovey-dovey stuff. So instead of showing fairy tales, Christine shows them what really happens in the world to young adults. What really is out there and what we woman can do about it. Sometimes we have to be shown the truth...no matter how much it might hurt us, it will make us stronger.

If you loved fairy tales as much as I, then you definitely need to read this book.

Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here
Prince Charming Doesn't Live Here - Christine Warren I didn't love the book...I didn't like the chemistry between Mac and Danice... okay there really wasn't any. And that was the problem. And she was a totally idiot. The whole reasoning for her going into Faery is beyond insane. She gets attacked and Mac tells her that Faery is 100 times worse and she doesn't even listen to him. That just annoyed me. He is half Fae, at least listen to the man about the pit falls of his land. Don't completely ignore him.

And the ending? REALLY? It was just like okay I love you and I'm quitting my job... Literally that how the damn books ends.

I like Mac as a character... thats the only thing I liked about the book.

Prince Charming Must Die
Prince Charming Must Die - Isabella Fontaine,Ken Brosky

Long ago, the Brother's Grimm set about writing their tales on magic paper with a special pen.  The paper brought their stories alive- literally; the characters from each of the fairy tales began appearing in real life, destined to play out their stories over and over again. However, over time all of the characters became corrupted, evil and a menace to society.  A hero emerged, a servant of the Grimm's realized the special pen holds the power to rid the Corrupted characters from Earth.  Now, a new hero is needed.  Alice is a high school student who has the most wonderful boyfriend that she can imagine, Edward.  Edward is handsome, sophisticated, mature, rich and has parents that never seem to be around.  With the end of the school year coming, Alice only has to pass her fencing final and has a volunteer position at the library coming up. In the library basement, she finds an interesting pen in between the pages of The Grimm Fairytales and her adventure as the next hero begins.  Too bad her first mission is to kill Prince Charming.  

I love fairytale retellings and this series of twelve stories about the Grimm's characters coming to life grabbed me right in the beginning.  I loved Alice's character, she absolutely loves books, is into the sport of fencing, and is intelligent.  She also makes realistic decisions for a teenager; I was impressed with her thought process about her friendships, alcohol and sex.  When Alice learns about being a hero, she takes it slow and takes everything in.  The Briar Rabbit as the hero's guide is awesome, I have a feeling that he will be a favorite character of mine in the books to come.  I enjoyed that there were some lesser known fairy tales thrown in here, too; it definitely peaked my interest.  Though I figured out who Prince Charming was right off the bat, this is a pretty awesome young adult fairytale retelling with a great heroine.  I will definitely be working my way through the rest of the episodes.  

 
This book is free for Kindle on Amazon if you want to check it out.
