You know me, always up for some fairy tale books. I like the combinations of these two: part fairy tale, part paranormal, and part choose your own adventure story. I'm really interested to see how that turns out.
I've actually been waiting on these two for about a year now. I think it was sometime around March/April last year that I first found out about them, and they were originally scheduled for publication in October of 2010. So I was a little disappointed when I found out the had been pushed back to this year. But now they're almost here!
Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer (Twisted Tales) and Cinderella: Ninja Warrior will be released on April 1st, but you can currently pre-order them from Amazon.com:
