Friday is for Fairytales is a meme hosted by Irena at This Miss Loves to Read. Every Friday, you can choose a fairytale you love, or simply find interesting or haunting, and review it or simply say why you like it so much, or why it has captured your attention. Instead of a fairytale, you can choose a favourite fairytale character and describe him/her and tell us why you like them, or you can simply share an experience connected to a fairytale. Fairytales can be old and modern, written by a known author or anonymous, written down or passed on orally, short or in novel form (like re-writings of fairytales), international or typical for your country alone. In this case, present your country’s fairytale and we can all become acquainted with a new fairytale. So, make a post every Friday that is connected to the world of fairytales, be it a review, a character description or your own fairytale experience. Let’s celebrate fairytales and share our love for them.
This might be stretching the theme a bit but I feel that the movie follows a fairy tale structure: poor unpopular Mia uncovers the truth about her origins; a fairy godmother (and really what else could you call Julie Andrews) transforms her; she navigates the dangerous paths of high school; and ends up with self-confidence and a handsome "prince." Also because of this movie, I started reading Meg Cabot (I probably would have anyway but this accelerated it). It's a fun movie but beware the sequel (unless you like Chris Pine aka reboot Kirk)
