FAIRY TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM by Phillip Pullman Feature and Giveaway


Do you love fairy tales? We do! Which is why we're so excited to feature (with a giveaway!) FAIRY TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM, a retelling of fifty beloved stories by Philip Pullman, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the His Dark Materials trilogy.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the first publication of Grimm's fairy tales. To celebrate, Viking is thrilled to publish FAIRY TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM, a retelling of fifty beloved stories by Philip Pullman, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the His Dark Materials trilogy.

From stories like Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel to lesser-known treasures like The Girl With No Hands, The Three Snake Leaves, and Godfather Death, Pullman retells fifty of Grimm's timeless classics for the modern age in his lively, beguiling prose. He includes all the most familiar characters Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, the Frog Prince, and Rapunzel while also introducing readers to some they might not have met yet.

Pullman has consulted a variety of editions of the work to pull together a seamless version of each story that focuses on engaging readers and demonstrating exactly why these fairy tales have been told over and over again, remaining vibrant since their original publication in the early 19th century. With FAIRY TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM, Pullman pays homage to the tales of romance and villainy that inspired his unique creative vision and that continue to cast their spell on the Western imagination.

Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass) has sold more than fifteen million copies and been published in more than forty countries. The first volume, The Golden Compass, was made into a major motion picture starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. Pullman is at work on a companion His Dark Materials novel The Book of Dust. He lives in Oxford, England.

“A fresh, sparkling collection of the finest stories from the Brothers Grimm, hand-picked by an author perfectly suited to the task. This volume is a must-have for any lover of fairy tales. . . . In the hands of a master storyteller such as Pullman, the Grimms’s tales take on a whole new life.” —Library Journal (starred review)

We had as much fun rereading our favorites and discovering new stories as we did sharing
this fantastic retelling with our families. The perfect holiday gift!

The Big Finale

We know many of you are still anxiously awaiting FINALE to release around the world (we'll be here to celebrate with you when the time comes!), but for those who were lucky enough to get their copy yesterday, we'd love to hear what you think. We headed out bright and early to scope out the stores and pick up our own books.

How gorgeous is that cover in real life? And how AMAZING and heart wrenching is the story? So bittersweet to have this be the last book of Nora and Patch's story, but Becca really blew us away with this intense and perfect conclusion. What a journey!


We want to hear what you think!

The only thing we ask is that you don't include any spoilers unless it is in the forum on a post that states it is a spoiler. We don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't read yet! Share your thoughts here in the comments section, on Facebook, tweet us, stop by the forum and chat with other fans. We're dying to  hear your thoughts and chat about how much we love FINALE.

Match made in heaven.
We'd also love to hear from and see photos from any fans who are lucky enough to make it to one of Becca's signings. Remember Drew will be there! We're so bummed we couldn't be there for the amazing Angels Night Out party last night to celebrate FINALE's release. Becca and Drew both said the event was fantastic. Yep, we're totally jealous.

Be sure to watch and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news on Becca's tour stops, contests and more.

Countdown to FINALE: Reread the first 3 books with us!

If you're anything like us and all those amazing FINALE excerpts have you pumped up and totally impatient to read FINALE, then we have the perfect solution to fill the (agonizing) gap these next few weeks.

A read along of HUSH, HUSH, CRESCENDO, and SILENCE!

Because what better way is there to get ready to spend more time with Patch and Nora then to spend more time with Patch and Nora? Sure, we all know what happens in the first three books, but let's go back and remember just what made us fall for Patch and sacrifice sleep until we knew where Nora's story was taking us. We can share favorite lines, post fan art, see if we notice any hints of what's to come in FINALE.

Do you have friends that haven't read the series yet? Now is the perfect time. Have them join us! We'll also be giving away prizes at random to fans caught talking about the book we're reading that week.
So, are YOU in? Good! Because we can't wait to relive all of our favorite Hush, Hush Saga moments with you as we count down the days until it all ends. But remember, Love Has No Finale!

The details:

Hang with us on Facebook, Twitter, the FallenArchangel forum, post on Tumblr, pin on Pinterest
as we reread each book and share quotes, excerpts, photos etc. on the dates as follows:

Monday, October 1 thru Sunday, October 7
Take it back to where it all began with HUSH, HUSH

Monday, October 8 thru Sunday, October 14
Fall for everyone's favorite fallen angel all over again with CRESCENDO

Monday, October 15 thru Sunday, October 22
Shout it, write it, share it! Just don't be keep silent as you reread SILENCE

We hope you'll join us and keep spreading that Hush, Hush love!

LOVE HAS NO FINALE Blog Tour Day 4 - Finale Excerpt Reveal

It's been an incredibly exciting week so far - we are loving the sneak peeks of FINALE!  And it's just getting better as the chapter continues to be revealed!!  We continue today here on FallenArchangel and the final stop is tomorrow on

Before you read on, if you missed any of the previous 3 days you'll want to read those excerpts first. Day 1 was here on Novel Novice, Day 2 here on Steph Su Reads and Day 3 here on Wondrous Reads.

Ok, now that you're all caught up.... read on for Day 4's reveal!!

When I woke, the bed next to me was cold. I smiled at the memory of falling asleep curled in Patch’s arms, concentrating on that rather than the probability that Pepper Friberg, aka Mr. Archangel with a Dirty Secret, had sat outside my house all night, playing spy.

Giveaway: WRECKED by Anna Davies

Secrets of the sea have never been sexier than this. 

Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.     

But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims—and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He won’t tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway…and discovers that Christian’s secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm.     

Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.

Check out the WRECKED featured fiction post on FallenArchangel and Enter for a chance to win a copy of WRECKED by Anna Davies!

A Hush, Hush Fan Guest Post: Pandemonium Review

We're very excited to introduce Momo from Books Over Boys, an awesome book reviewer and Hush, Hush Fan! *and a fellow Blue October fan!* She recently read Lauren Oliver's DELIRIUM and PANDEMONIUM and was gracious enough to let us share her review of PANDEMONIUM, the heart-stopping second book of the trilogy, and our March Featured Fiction. We highly recommend this book too but she sums it up much better than we can. Thank you, Momo!

*The contest is now closed. Thank you to all who entered,
 and congratulations to the winner, Julie!*


Please visit Books Over Boys to see this review in its original format, as well as many others

Title: Pandemonium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: February 28th, 2012

Find Lauren Oliver Online: TwitterWebsiteBlogFacebook

I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.

My $0.02

I didn’t think I was going to be this affected by this book. Everyone has a number one most favorite book. Well, that book became your number one most favorite because there was something about it that touched you personally or something about it that tugged and hooked onto you—hard. After you find a book like that and the feelings you felt when you read it, you’re constantly on the search for the next book that will deliver that same high to you—a higher high than that favorite book, even. My point is, those kinds of books are rare. You can read a thousand books and all of them could become your favorite but only a small percentage of those would be your most favorite; you’ll like all of them but you’ll only love a few of them. Okay, I shouldn’t make this such a general statement because I’m not sure about anyone else but for me, this is true.

It’s no secret that Delirium, very quickly, became one of these books for me. Something about everything in those 441 pages that made it unforgettable. The words tumbled out of the pages and whispered sweet nothings into my soul (no joke!) and before I knew it, I couldn’t, I wouldn’t not love this amazing series. So, of course I was very eager to dive head first into Pandemonium. When I start the next book in a series, I get bored—sometimes. For example, with the way how Delirium ended, I wanted to open up Pandemonium and get taken right back to the very second where Lena was before my eyes swam across that last word in Delirium. But naturally, that didn’t happen. Various times during my reading of Pandemonium, I kept searching for that little thing that would stand out to me and make it better than Delirium and overall, Pandemonium was highly enjoyable but for some reason, it was…slow to me. I was looking for that spark that would pull me back in whenever I lost a little bit of interest.

Oliver distributed those “sparks” perfectly—right when I was going to close the book and stop my reading for the night, I was pulled in for another few pages that turned into one more chapter, three more chapters, five more chapters—un. put. down. able! The slowness for me came when Lena took us back to the then parts of the book, which is ironic because at the beginning, I wanted so badly to know what happened to her after…the ending in Delirium. All of this was overlooked as I got to the ending. I knew from many people that the ending in Pandemonium was going to be a killer; I prepared myself, or at least, I tried to. But no matter how much I tried to prepare myself, when I got to that very last page, the tears came and came and came and came. I was so overwhelmed with emotions that I became hysterical; my hands were shaking, I ran out of breath, I was making weird shrieking noises—I was a mess. I couldn’t and I still can’t even comprehend…deep sigh.

Pandemonium definitely had a different feel to it than Delirium. I’m not the biggest fan of dystopians and I guess one reason why I love Delirium so much is because it didn’t really feel like a dystopian to me, not completely. But when I got to Pandemonium, those dystopian factors were very present and it kind of drew me away from the story. A lot of bombs were dropped into the plot; Oliver has a way of hinting at them as you read but they’re so vague you hardly pay any attention to them so when they’re brought to light, you’re dumbfounded, left speechless. I didn’t see a bunch of them coming but after they were explained the oooh effect set it. Also, Oliver has a way of creating the biggest impact of the entire book on the very last two pages of both books. So, I highly recommend you staying away from those two pages because without a doubt, you will be spoiled rotten if you flip to them, even accidentally, so don’t even think about looking back there.

Everything that happens in Pandemonium builds you up for the earth-shattering ending. When people say that the ending will kill you, trust them because they know what they’re talking about! Pandemonium is a swirl of crazy emotions: angst and confusion and happiness and pain and sadness and cold-heartedness, and so many other emotions that I can’t even identify right now. Needless to say, Oliver has made a crazy, obsessive fan out of me and I absolutely cannot wait for Requiem—I’ll seriously do anything to get my hands on a copy. Anything, I tell you! I can’t even believe that we have to wait basically a whole year until we get to see that pretty on shelves! WAAAH! Anywho, read Pandemonium, stat! If you’ve read Delirium and you still haven’t gotten to Pandemonium…well, then you’re crazy and I can’t be friends with a crazy! ;) Trust me, read it…because you’ll fall insanely in love with it! You will, I dare you not too!


And because we love PANDEMONIUM and Momo's review so much we want to give YOU a chance to win a copy! All you have to do is comment on this post. Please be sure to leave an email address so we can contact the winner. The contest is open internationally and will close on Tuesday March 20th at midnight EDT. One winner will be selected at random.

GOOD LUCK and Happy Reading!

CRESCENDO Paperback Blog Tour - Day 1

Tomorrow (Tuesday) CRESCENDO will be released in paperback and in honor of the release Becca is doing a mini Blog Tour.  We are happy to be kicking it off by hosting Day 1.  

CRESCENDO Paperback Virtual Signing
Becca is doing a Virtual Signing to benefit a library near us in northeastern Pennsylvania - the West Pittston Public Library.   Back in September a few short weeks after our area was hit by the effects of Hurricane Irene, we received (more) large amounts of rain resulting in parts of the Susquehanna River overflowing it's banks.  The town of West Pittston was hit particularly hard, especially the library!  These pictures from the library's Facebook page tell most of the story, as book lovers they break your heart!

Children's Room - almost nothing remains

Juvenile Fiction Area
A Young Adult Area 
Books & Other Items Destroyed by flood waters

Another pile of destroyed items 

So sad to see the damage/devastation

The community has really rallied to help the library and they have set up a temporary location in a vacant store front not far from their Library building.  They are accepting monetary donations to help them get back on their feet.  

We are grateful to Becca and Simon & Schuster for the virtual signing they are doing to raise funds for the library.  (Check it out here.)  For more info on the library or to donate visit the West Pittston Public Library website.
