GIVEAWAY: Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale By Wendy Toliver

082714_WorldofWeirTour_Phase1

Some of my favorite types of stories are fairy tales so I have been loving that retellings have grown popular in past few years.  And when it comes to fairy tales, Disney is the ultimate master of preserving classics and piecing together a story that is both accessible, enjoyable, and an instant classic which is why I am so excited to be a part of their Fairy Tale 2.0!  The three books Disney Hyperion is celebrating on this blog tour are A Whole New World (an Aladdin retelling where Jafar finds the lamp first), A Frozen Heart (the backstory of Elsa and Anna told in alternating perspectives), and the book I’ll be focusing on, Once Upon a Time: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver (which tells the popular character Red’s story while she wasn’t on Once Upon a Time).  If you follow the #FairyTale2pt0 hashtag, you’ll be able to enter giveaways for the other books as well!  Here is the synopsis to Red’s Untold Tale:

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.

    I love Once Upon a Time (and fairy tale retellings in general too)! My favorite character has to be Regina. She’s so complex and fascinating, and I 100% ship her with Robin Hood.

  2. Bobbi says:

    Cool prize! It reminds me that Once Upon A Time is waiting in my Netflix queue. I need to get on that!

  3. Joie Fatale says:

    My favorite OUaT characters have to be Hook & Rumplestiltskin! I wish Mulan had had more time though! I hope she comes back this season!

    Thank you for sharing this giveaway! I haven’t read the novelizations to the series yet, but they must be awesome reads. My favorite character is Emma; this season is going to be a lot of fun (and feels) seeing her turn dark. :)

    I just saw this in B&N the other day and considered picking it up, but then refrained because my to-read list is soooooo long! It looks really good!
