Daisy Crispin has 196 days to find the right date for the prom. There's only one problem--her parents won't let her date or even talk to a guy on the phone. Oh, and she's totally invisible at school, has to wear lame homemade clothes, and has no social skills. Okay, so maybe there's more than one problem.

Becoming a servant doesn’t seem all that bad until the handsome John comes into her life, now he appears to be upsetting everything. Never before has she been so unsettled. Just his presence is making her dream of a life beyond this one.

When John invites Ella to the ball and she grudgingly accepts, he wonders if he’s truly losing his mind. How would he ever pull off pretending to be John while obviously hosting the ball as Anthony?

YA
$1.99
Purchase from Amazon

Goodreads summary:
In this new stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie—blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic—can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.

But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own.



The Frog Princess (Tales of the Frog Princess #1) by E. D. Baker
YA
$.99
Purchase from Amazon

Goodreads summary:
 
Princess Emeralda a.ka. Emma isn't exactly an ideal princess. Her laugh is more like a donkey's bray than tinkling bells, she trips over her own feet and she does not like Prince Jorge, whom her mother hopes she will marry. But if Emma ever thought to escape her troubles, she never expected it to happen by turning into a frog! When convinced to kiss a frog so he might return to being a prince, somehow the spell is reversed and Emma turns into a frog herself! Thus begins their adventure--a quest to return to human form.

Fascinating and hilarious characters ranging from a self-conscious but friendly bat to a surprisingly loyal snake and a wise green witch confirm that readers won't soon forget this madcap story. A fantastic debut from the talented E.D. Baker.

Standing up for what you believe in is hard for any teenager in the battleground known as high school. It's even harder in the world of Hollywood, which is where sixteen-year-old June Laurie dreams of being. Thanks to the constant training from her agent/grandmother and the support of her best friend Joseph, June is positive she's ready. But is an innocent little Mormon girl like June ever really ready to be cast as the love interest for the country's hottest star, Lukas Leighton? When June lands a role in Hollywood's most popular crime drama, Forensic Faculty, she finds herself caught off-guard by the fast-paced world of tabloids and paparazzi, and swept off her feet by her gorgeous co-star. Now June must decide what she's willing to give up to achieve the title of Hollywood starlet—or more importantly, what's too sacred to lose.





























Do you see a little bit of a fairy tale theme here? I love those types of books and the ones here should be okay to recommend to my tween nieces. Did you read or get any good ebooks this week?

  1. I was like you too, wondering what I have on my kindle to read and I thought it wasn't much. But when I opened my kindle I was surprised how much books I had (most of them free) that I downloaded couple of weeks ago and know I wish to finish all of them =)

    I hope you review the faerie tail collections soon, I want to read them but I'm not sure. Would love to know your opinion of them.

    Love the page =)

  2. Love this feature. I've heard that the Jane Austen Academy books are really good. And Jellicoe Road is a must-read!!

    1. I like the feature because I like sharing free and good deals I got on ebooks each week. Although, I'm realizing I spend way too much! ;) I should save it up and then buy some books I've been dying to read.

      I read one of the JAA books and it was cute. So kind of ironic since this relates to your Freebie Friday post today - I wish the one I read would have been longer because I wanted a lot more development.

      I heard Jellicoe Road was good and it's been on my tbr for a long time, so I though I'd get it while it was cheap. :)

    1. I've read a few other books by her, but they were a little more serious. I'm looking forward to reading this one since it sounds like a quick and entertaining read.
