It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
Reading was bit slow this week. I thought I would finish The Hawkman but I’m still reading it. It is progressing very slow because of different writing and it is kind of classic literature which takes more time from me to grasp it properly. I finished –
The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War by Jane Rosenberg LaForge
Power to the Princess by Vita Weinstein Murrow, Julia Bereciartu
In this stunning anthology, 15 favorite fairy tales have been retold for a new generation. These princesses are smart, funny, and kind, and can do anything they set their minds to. They are:
Snow White—champion of real beauty
Sleeping Beauty—specialist on sleeping disorders
Thumbelina—music producer and advocate
Belle the Brave—undercover agent
Elisabeth and the Wild Swans—fashion designer
Cinderella—prime minster and businesswoman
Star and the 12 Dancers—dancer
The Goose Girl—stand-up comedian
Princess Sevinah (and the Pea)—founder of the Fairyland Dating Service
The Snow Queen—winter sports coach
The Little Mermaid—advocate for peace between mer-people and humans
Zade—storyteller (of 1001 tales) and businesswoman
Evangeline (The Frog Princess)—natural historian
Little Red Riding Hood—environmentalist and Princess of the Wolves
Focused on issues including self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy, and disability, these stories are perfect for sharing between parents and children, or for older princesses or princes to read by themselves. They teach that a princess is a person who seeks to help others, is open to learning new things, and looks for ways to add purpose to their lives and the lives of those around them.
Power to the princess!
Princesses are pretty cool in this book so far.
