My daughter is more than a little obsessed with Frozen, and has been since I took her to see it in the theater. She's got the movie, books, dress-up clothes, dolls...all featuring characters from the movie. So, when I was offered up a copy for review as well as an opportunity to share it with you guys in a giveaway, I couldn't say yes fast enough. Katie and I haven't gotten to the book yet -- school reading takes priority, boo! -- but here's a little more about A Frozen Heart:

About the Book
What if Aladdin had never found the lamp? This first book in the A Twisted Tale line will explore a dark and daring version of Disney's Aladdin. When Jafar steals the Genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war. What happens next? A Street Rat becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And readers will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.



ONCE UPON A TIME: RED’S UNTOLD TALE
by Wendy Toliver
In stores now!

About the Book
Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.


Thanks for stopping by & happy reading!

  7. I think Snow White and Prince Charming would be quite comical. Can you imagine what Prince Charming was thinking when he saw her living with all of those dwarves?
