  1. Oooh, I have so many favorites: Ella Enchanted, Goose Girl, Princess of the Midnight Ball and its sequels, anything by Robin McKinley. I’ve been meaning to read the Cinder books, too.


  2. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale is one of my favorites… Also The Fire Rose by Mercedes Lackey. (She has three subgenres for me… Stuff I love, stuff that’s okay, and stuff that bores me until I want to claw my eyes out. The Fire Rose is in the “love” category. One of the first romances I really enjoyed, actually… Based on Beauty and the Beast. 😀 )
