Book Cover Contest

Update 1: I forgot to mention, but you can totally design the cover on the computer! (is there a term for that…?) And also, you can go for any theme you want, but I had in mind a more elegant fairy tale theme centered around gold and silver. Feel free to follow that or bring in some modern inspiration!

Update 2: And if you don’t feel comfortable giving out your email address, you can totally just link a Google Docs. or post your entry on your blog! 🙂 Just leave a link in the comments so I can check it out!

Hi everyone! So I’m just going to get straight to the point…Read More »

Famous Friday – A Hero’s Guide

Hey guys! It’s Famous Friday! End of the week – a weekend ahead. For me, weekends are the perfect time to curl up with a book under a blanket with a yummy snack, so today I’m going to review one of the books on my favorites list! But keep in mind, my Favorite Book List is very, very, very, very loooooooooooooooooooong. So never ask me what my favorite book is.

Anyway, on with the show! Enjoy ~

hero's guide

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You’ve never heard of them, have you? These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet, thanks to those lousy bards who wrote the tales, you likely know them only as Prince Charming. But all of this is about to change.
Rejected by their princesses and cast out of their castles, the princes stumble upon an evil plot that could endanger each of their kingdoms. Now it’s up to them to triumph over their various shortcomings, take on trolls, bandits, dragons, witches, and other assorted terrors, and become the heroes no one ever thought they could be.

The Hero’s Guide to Saving a Kingdom is the first of the three books in the Hero’s Guide series. It’s a laugh-out-loud comedy book that, while not being Pride and Prejudice literature level, is still a good read to cheer you up and fill in what’s missing from the fairy tales, explaining what exactly is a happily ever after and what happens after?

I’ve read this series, I don’t know, twenty times? It’s fun to flip through it once in a while and amuse myself with the hilarious antics of these princes and princesses. Even though it’s not great literature, the language is clean, the plot is cunning, and each character has a set personality that’s way, way, different from everyone else’s and you find that maybe the happily ever after you expect isn’t always the one that ends up being the greatest ending.


So that’s the Hero’s Guide to Saving a Kingdom! I recommend it if you’re a fairy tale/fantasy lover like me and are searching for a book that has a comedy twist and a bit of a different ending than you’re used to.
