Princess Survey Results and Giveaway

Princess and the Goblin, TheThank you to everyone who completed the Princess Story Survey. Of the four princess books reviewed this month, The Princess and the Goblin is the most popular and received 35% of the votes. The Princess and the Kiss was close behind, receiving 30% of the votes. Next up was Ella Enchanted, which received 25% of the votes. And A Little Princess received 10% of the votes.

Not everyone voted on which book I should give away, but it’s a good thing there were an odd number of votes cast. We came very close to having a tie! As you may have guessed from the picture, The Princess and the Goblin won, receiving 53% of the votes while A Little Princess won 47% of the votes. So, I’m giving away a copy of The Princess and the Goblin. Please read carefully as the rules are a little bit different than usual.

I’m opening the giveaway up to people living internationally this time. In order to avoid shipping, there are three prize options this time. All three are available to residents of the United States. Only the e-book and audible book are available to international entries. Please indicate which prize you would like to win in your comment. Only one prize will be given away. The options are as follows.
A hard copy of The Princess and the Goblin (it may or may not be this edition)
The Works of George MacDonald kindle book
The Princess and the Goblin audible audio edition

To enter simply leave a comment stating why you like this story or would like to read it and indicating which prize option you would like to win

Giveaway ends October 16th.

    I read the reviews on Amazon and the books sound fabulous. I am not a big Fairy Tale reader but who doesn’t like a good Fairy Tale! I love how it was noted that children and adults of all ages would love it. I believe that is the mark of a great book.

    I would love to win the hard copy of The Princess and the Goblin.

    I will be putting this on my shelf of books to read. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would like a hard copy of the Princess and the Goblin. This book is one of my favorites, but the copy I own is an antique and particularly fragile. I would add the book to the collection of books in my library that I will have in my public school classroom when I get my own class. I want it for there so that I can open the children’s literary world to books they would not otherwise be exposed to. โ˜บ๏ธ

    • Thanks for entering, Beatriz. Unfortunately, due to shipping, only the e-book or audio options are available to international entries. I apologize for that. If you read the directions above, you’ll see this fact was mentioned. If your name is drawn I’ll be happy to send you either of the e-options. Thanks again for entering!

  4. I would like to thank you for this fantastic book giveaway! I am a huge fan of fairytales ~ from the traditional Grimm Tales read to as a child, to the modern ‘twisted’ fairytales (such as “Alice in Zombieland” and “Once Upon A Dream” etc.). I also LOVE the brilliant TV drama ‘Once Upon A Time’ that makes classic fairytales current and reach out to a modern audience.
    I would love to have the chance of reading this, and as a UK resident i am presuming it will be the ‘e-book’ option?
    Thanks x

    • You’re welcome. Thank you for entering. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And, yes, both the kindle e-book (which is actually a omnibus with 33 stories, including 4 fairy tales) and audible audio book are available to you.

  5. I’ve always wanted to read this classic and though I’m sure it is very, very, different, I’ve seen it mentioned along with The Hobbit, The Gammage Cup, and The Weirdstone of Brisingame as one of the most impactful early novels merging the fairy tale with the ‘modern’ fantasy. Oh, I do hope I win!

  6. Hi Leah! We should chat soon. I’m back at home. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d like the hard copy. I’ve been meaning to read more MacDonald, he was a favorite of C.S. Lewis’s. I think I’ve maybe read this one before? But I can’t remember.

    I worked in a College book store and actually saw this on the shelves for one of the English Literature classes. It looked really good!

  10. Oh, another giveaway! Sounds like fun. I would like to enter for the audio version. I will listen to it while I mow lawns for my fledgling mowing business. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. This sounds like a great fairy tale to entertain anyone. I would love the audio version to listen to. I think this would be a great fairy tale to share with my son when he’s older.

    I think this comment is too late…but if it isn’t I would love The Works of George Macdonald kindle edition! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m actually reading The Princess and the Goblin on my Dad’s phone, but it’s taking me awhile to finish it since his phone is always at work with him. Ho hum. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have you read The Princess and Curdie? It’s the sequel to The Princess and the Goblin, which I didn’t know so I read it first. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No. I actually haven’t read either books. My only forays into George Macdonald so far have been Sir Gibbie and The Light Princess.
