CLOSED Giveaway: Kill Me Softly


Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross
314 pages
April 10th 2012 by EgmontUSA
Mirabelle's past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents' tragic deaths to her guardians' half-truths about why she can't return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.

In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who's a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again.

But fairy tales aren't pretty things, and they don't always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy tale curses of their own . . . brothers who share a dark secret. And she'll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.

  1. I HAVE BEEN LUSTING AFTER THIS BOOK SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! Seriously. I stare at it every day on Amazon and think to myself "Surely your savings plan wouldn't be too hurt if you just bought this one little book..." *looks at savings plan which is already $200 behind schedule* "Surely not..." And alas. I have not bought it. So I REALLY hope I win.

    Anyway. Favorite fairy tale? Hm... tough choice... I'm a big fan of Maid Maleen and Goose Girl. Especially Goose Girl because it actually has a happy ending (well, if you arent the evil servant).

  5. I can't just pick a favorite fairy tale! Well...I guess...if I have to...Beauty and the Beast!

  6. I. Need. To. Read. This. NOW!!!
    Seriously! Cannot wait for this book to be released! Everything about it just screams to me!
    My favorite fairy tale... Snow White, Little Red, Goose Girl... and not the Disney version to them, lol!

  7. Favorite fairy tale: The Goose Girl.

    Most amused by: Cinderella, the Grimm version. Seriously, I laugh hysterically when I read the end of the story, which makes me feel like a psychopath, but oh well. How is it not funny that the evil stepsisters get their eyes pecked out by Cinderella's bird friends on the way up and down the aisle at her wedding! What is that?

    Kill Me Softly sounds so good!

  8. I've really want to read this book!

    I don't know if I could pick a favorite tale as an adult, but my favorite tale as a child was....

    The Breman Musicians.

    Yeah, that's a strange one, right?

  9. OMG! I am dying to read this book. The cover is gorgeous and I've read so many reviews for this book. I'm off to comment on the other post.

  10. My favorite fairy tale as a child was Hansel and Gretel, although I'm not sure what my favorite is now.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think I'll have to go with Beauty and the Beast (especially as it is portrayed in Robin McKinley's version, which I love.)

    Although if Rapunzel's story was actually anything like the movie Tangled, then I might choose that, as Tangled is awesome. But the original is pretty different!

    My favorite fairy tale is East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

  23. My favorite fairytale is The Maiden Without Hands. It's the same archetype as East o' the Sun, West o' the Moon and other heroin quest tales.

    ReplyDelete
  24. So hard to choose! I'm going to come out and admit something though...I'm more of a Hans Christian Andersen girl than a Grimm girl. I do love so much of the Grimm's fairy tales, but something about Andersen's are just more heartwrenching and sad in a way that I love. Like The Little Match Girl, or the The Little Mermaid. For a favorite though, today I'm leaning toward The Snow Queen. I was afraid to look out of the window in the winter at night for years as a child for fear that the Snow Queen would be hovering just outside...

  25. My favorite fairytale would have to be Hanzle and Gretel! It is my all time favorite!

  34. I don't know if I can pick a favourite! I always kind of waver between a few, but recently, I've been totally obsessed with Little Red Riding Hood, probably because I think Ruby on Once Upon a Time is bad@ss! haha

  36. favorite fairy tale; the frog prince

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favorite fairy tale growing up was Sleeping Beauty, the Disney version - probably because there was a horse and a dragon involved. Now, I'm not so sure, especially since I know how dark most fairy tales actually are! I am weirdly fond of The Juniper Tree though, even though it's pretty messed up. Haha.

    Thanks for this giveaway!

  44. I think I'll have to go with Hansel & Gretel for my favorite fairy tale for a variety of reasons.
    1) The original book has the word cooky in it. No, I didn't misspell it.
    2) It doesn't get the attention it deserves.
    3) That is one heckofa morbid kid story :P

  45. I have been reading a lot of good things about this. Looking forward to reading it. My favorite is Cinderella.

  48. My favorite has always been Cinderella. The happily ever after always appeals to me, especially when someone finally gets there after such a horrific childhood. Don't we all wish for that one moment that completely changes our lives in the best possible way?

    Thank you for the fun giveaway, I've had my eye on this book. It looks awesome!
