60 hours left! + Newsletter

Fluffly would like to remind you that Enna Isilee's giveaway ends in exactly 2 days and 12 hours! You'd better hurry up and go here to get the details and enter.
Also a reminder that if you blogged about my contest I need you to give me a link to the post, you can't just say "I posted."

Also, Squeaky News is back! I have just sent out the October edition of my newsletter! It has contest information, upcoming reviews, and an interview with a fellow book blogger! Let me know if you got it and you could see the images.

I'll post a link in a few days for those of you who haven't subscribed to my newsletter. Subscribing is easy! Just enter your e-mail into the area in the sidebar. There will be no spam or nothing, just book news!

Also, someone suggested making a list of books with arranged marriages. I think that's a great idea! From now on I'll do it in the Plotrospection post, but lets do it here now. I'll list a couple:

by Sarah Beth Durst
The Goose Girl, Shannon Hale

What others?


  1. The King of Attolia had a somewhat arranged marriage.

  2. Hmm. Now it's going to drive me crazy if I can't think of any.

    I think Book of a Thousand Days (Shannon Hale) had an arranged marriage of sorts...I'm trying to remember.

    And the Looking Glass Wars deals with it a little (in the sense that Alice dreads having to marry the Jack of Diamonds when she grows up)...but then her whole family gets killed so that all sort of goes away.

    Do any of those count? I'll try to think of better ones...

  3. The Princess and the Hound by Mette Ivie Harrison
    Dragonfly by Julia Golding
    The Hollow Kingdom by Clare B. Dunkle (marriage against will)
    Enchantress from the Stars by Sylvia Engdahl
    Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
    Princess Academy by Shannon Hale(deciding who will be in the arranged marriage)
    Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale(promised in marriage to another)
    Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast by Robin McKinley
    Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
    Nobody's Princess/Nobody's Prize by Esther Friesner
    Dealing with Dragons by Patricia Wrede
    Legacy by Cayla Kluver
    The Heavenward Path by Kara Dalkey
    Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriott?
    Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon?
    Maid Marian: A Novel by Elsa Watson
    Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman
    Shabahu: Daughter of the Wind by Suzanne Fisher Staples
    A Girl Named Disaster by Nancy Farmer
    Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George
    The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
    A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libbra Bray
    The Edge on the Sword by Rebecca Tingle
    The Horse and His Boy by C. S. Lewis (Lucy)
    Anahita's Woven Riddle by Meghan Nuttall Sayres
    Tiger Moon by Antonia Michaelis
    Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
    The Princess Bride by William Goldman
    The Once and Future King by T. H. White

    That's all I can think of at the moment (that took a while, but like I said, I have a fascination with this subject). I notice a lot of them deal with arranged marriages just by running away from them. Oh, and will this link suffice for your contest? ;)

  4. Chinese Cinderella
    The Smile- Donna Jo Napoli
    The Luxe series- Anna Godbersen
    Princess Ben= Catherine Gilbert Murdock

    That's all I came up with that hadn't already been said. Heather covered everything else I had in mind. :)

  5. SECRET KEEPER by Mitali Perkins. I loved that book!
