Fairy Tale Friday

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.
I first saw The Princess Bride nine years ago in school where the ending was cut off! But already I was in love and this is still one of my favorite movies. Swashbuckling adventure, revenge plots, brilliant Sicilians, and of course True Love: this movie has it all! Plus it's very quotable. Personally I'm a big Westley fan (that voice!) but there's also Inigo Montoya, Fezzik, Vizzini, and even Prince Humperdinck (what a name!) The book, by William Goldman, is also hilarious and worth a read if you ever see it at your local library or bookstore.

If you haven't seen this, you should put it at the top of your list!


  1. This movie is so wodnerful! I love it, too. I have yet to read the book, but it's definitely one of those books I intend to tackle eventually. Great pick!

  2. I love The Princess Bride movie...never read the book though. I've been thinking about joining in with the Princess Bride Readalong over at book-a-rama
